Great for week alone

Would recommend Wed, Sep 23, 2015
I was in town alone to help out my dad and see about his needs. The hotel was great for what it was - but could have used a little more creature comforts. I am not complaining, just saying what I feel. The one thing that still bothers me a bit - even tho my reservation was for a full week, my room key became disabled. To get it enabled, all I had to do was walk up the desk clerk (who had manager on her tag) and let her know what room I was staying in she enabled my card again. While it was nice that was no hassle, the lack of security around it made me a little uneasy. I would have thought that I would have needed to provide at least my id so that she could verify that I was the person that was checked into that room.

Athens November 2014

Would recommend Tue, Nov 11, 2014
This was a very comfortable stay. Just needed a place to sleep for several days and it worked great. Room was large enough and comfortable. Didn't use the kitchenette area but it would have been ample for a small family to use, especially if you were on a budget and wanted to eat in. Full refrigerator which was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Provided an ample amount of towels and we did not need to exchange . I'm sure if needed would have been a breeze. Need larger trash bags/containers. Bed was very comfortable and good amount of pillows. Would stay here again. Highly recommended. Very good stay

Dining

Multiple restaurants, Logans Steak House, Outback, Carrabas, On the Border, Olive garden, etc... Only McDonalds for fast food after 1030 PM.

Lacking Customer Service

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 8, 2013
I checked in at 3pm needing two double beds. I stated this at check in. The manager did not even greet me at the front desk. The entire time she was trying to book me seemed frustrated. Upon opening the door to the hotel room, I noticed there was only one bed. I politely went back to the front desk and told her that I requested two beds. She said "That's the only room we have available". She asked if a roll away bed would work. I said yes. The roll away bed came to the room with NO sheets. They finally brought up one sheet and a thin blanket that was rolled up in a ball. I had to go back to the front desk and ask for a heavier blanket and another sheet. Of course they didn't have any. This lack of customer service and lack of supplies didn't settle very well with me or my other firends. I will not be back. The only thing nice about this hotel is the fact that it is a straight shot into downtown Athens and about a 12 minute drive.

Hotel needs to be upfront about policies

Would not recommend Mon, May 6, 2013
the hotel was great, very clean, good location. beware if you are traveling with a pet -they charge a75.00 per pet fee- they are not upfront about it, we got a note on our door after checking in-I told the front desk person that i was there to compete in a dog show( one would think that meant i had a dog with me)- we were very lucky that we were not stung with this fee at check out- we had 3 toy dogs with us-we were told that they would only charge us for two- 150.00 wasn't that nice. i had a friend near by who was kind enough to keep my dogs at her home for two days- This hotel is not pet friendly ans should not be advertised as such. I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN

Pleasant Stay

Would recommend Sun, Apr 3, 2011
I was in town for a weekend open house at UGA for their law school. There was a little league softball tournament in town, as well as open house's for other graduate schools so most of the hotel's were fully booked. We found this hotel to be very spacious and convenient for the price. Was about 4-5 minutes from the university/downtown, but everything else was top notch.

Not so great

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 15, 2010
When we arrived, the bathrooms had not been cleaned and it looked like the sheets hadn't been changed. Both were fixed quickly although this is the first time I've had to change the sheets of my own bed in a hotel. The second day of our stay, the tv didn't work so they moved us into a second room and it was much nicer than the first. It wasn't a bad stay but for the money we were paying we expected a little more.
