A great deal

The staff at this hotel is super friendly. The beds are very soft and the overall cleanliness of the rooms is great. Wifi works great and breakfast is served every morning. The location is good for driving to downtown Athens, but it's a good 10 minute walk if on foot. For the price, this hotel is a great deal. I will be staying here again. The only downside was the small restroom.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Cali-n-titos on lumpkin st offers great Latin food for low prices. It should not be missed when in Athens. It only accepts cash as payment, though. You can also BYOB with ID and the purchase of a 2 dollar wristband.

Perfectly practical

I really enjoyed staying here. The location just over the hill from downtown so it wasn't right in the bulk of traffic but also wasn't too far away. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as was most everyone in the town that I came in contact with! The beds were comfy and there were plenty of pillows. A nice continental breakfast in the office or a coffee maker WITH coffee in your room. Only downfall was the limited parking. We came in a little later one night and had to park in the very back away from our room. But other than that everything was perfect!

Good value for money

The staff were efficient and kind. The room was very clean. The breakfast was OK and the designated breakfast room really crowded with no real healthy options. That was the lowest point of the stay. We also would have appreciated another bedside table, one for each bed. The swimming pool was most welcome and everything else was really good.

Excellent value

Great experience. Right across from The Varsity and Shane's Rib Shack. The only "complaint" (which isn't really a complaint at all) is that it was advertised as walking distance from downtown.... technically it is, but the walk would be a rough one up a hill. That's no drawback at all though. I am DEFINATELY staying there when I return next year.

Good for what was needed

I was heading to Athens to stay the night for my birthday and wanted a place within walking distance to the bars. It wasn't the shortest walk ever (about 10-15 min walk) but it was worth it. Cabs can be expensive. The breakfast in the morning was decent, and the room cleanliness was good. The only complaint I had is that they seriously need to draino their showers, it was NASTY how full the tub got while taking a shower. Other than that, I recommend it!!

Great place at a great price

Everything was great for the most part. The only drawback to our room is that we were right under the breakfast area and could hear people walking from time to time. Otherwise, it was just fine. Close to downtown. Varsity across the street.

comfortable stay

Room was ready early! It was clean, comfortable, and had a big flat screen tv. The service was friendly, and the breakfast was fresh and well-stocked. Can't beat the price!

Great Customer Service, Pleasant Stay!

The hotel was very quiet and clean. Though our room was actually double-booked. The staff in the office was quick and efficient in getting us another room and even gave us complimentary bags, along with numerous and sincere apologies for the inconvenience. They were very helpful with directions to restaurants and numbers for a cab service. I would no doubt stay here again!
