Best Western Colonial Inn

THE hotel was a quite dirty and old, and smokey, and the neighborhood is a pretty seedy. THE Breakfast bar was OK.

good place to stay in Athens GA

Was surprised at the cleanliness, updated room décor and furnishings and overall appearance: free breakfast needs tweaking-- for instance,, greek yogurt, more selections of fruit, etc. No newspapers on site; cable tv was not easy to use,: doors to bathroom and vanity wouldn't shut. My overall rating, however, is a three-star.

Well-run college-town motel

I stayed for two nights at this motel, taking a day to take in Athens, the record stores, historic clubs, etc. The rooms were clean and comfortable, featured WiFi *and* ethernet, and also had a digital thermostat, which is much better than having to keep turning the A/C on and off. It should go without saying that this is in a college town. I was there the weekend after move-in weekend, but it was still nearly full. There was some minor noise at night (balcony conversation a tad too loud), but I asked the people to be quiet and they were nice about it. Other highlights: large pool and really nice Continental breakfast. Would definitely stay again, though probably not on a football weekend.

Cleanliness is slipping

We have been frequent visitors to this hotel over the past 5 years and were disappointed in quality slippage during our recent visit. Although the bedding linens were nicely upgraded, the bath was a major disappointment. The shower curtain had enough pink and black mold on it that it could have walked out of the tub if it chose to do so. This kind of obvious dirt leads you to believe the whole room is poorly cleaned- it was disgusting. Another disappointment was the breakfast buffet- not as many choices- fruit wasn't ready to eat, no donuts/ However desk staff was as efficient and polite as usual and the location is very convenient. With more attention to cleaning, this facility is a great value in Athens, but the mold..

Good hotel for price

Decent location to UGA. Good value for the money. Bathroom floors could have been cleaner but over all for the money a good value. Need fresh fruit at breakfast, not an apple in a basket.

Comfortable but showing its age

The room was clean and the bed confortable, but everything showed wear and tear. The light between the bed worked, but the switch did not (we had to unplug it to turn it off). It served its purpose, but I am sure that there are better hotels in Athens for the price.

Overnight stay

Clean room except for the leftover washcloth hanging from the shower nozzle. Quiet room even though it was ground level. Good breakfast started early (5am).
