Quaint College Town Entertains Athens Hotel Guests. Adjacent to the campus of UGA, the Holiday Inn® Athens - University Area hotel's location affords guests numerous opportunities. Not only is the hotel close to campus, but it also exudes the vibrant, exciting atmosphere that is so apparent in downtown Athens, GA. The hotel's business guests appreciate the convenient downtown Athens setting. In addition to being the closest hotel to the campus of UGA, we're near a number of area companies, including Weyerhaeuser, Carrier Transicold and Eaton Corp, as well as Athens Regional Medical Center and St. Mary's Hospital. Athens - Ben Epps Airport (AHN) is also within four miles of the hotel's location. Downtown Athens, GA provides the hotel's guests with all kinds of entertainment. In keeping with the college spirit of Athens, the city's downtown buzzes with activity in bars, clubs, restaurants, shops and more. When guests are not enjoying UGA Bulldogs' sporting events, they can catch a show at the Classic Center or visit historic sites throughout the city. Visitors to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia find it easy to become enamored with the beautiful foliage, while the Georgia Museum of Art intrigues visitors with its outstanding exhibits. This hotel has everything you need on site, from the full-service restaurant to the Business and Fitness Centers.

Can't beat the location and price

We love the location, basic at the UGA Arch. Newly updated room, and great friendly staff. I will stay there again in September. The price cannot be beat.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The Long Horn restaurant is about 3 miles west of town. The food was terrible. It was cold, and our steaks were raw. The staff however, was great. They need a real cook.

wonderful new years experience

Staff was wonderful and fun. Security was great. Loved the location, walking distance from downtown on new years eve. Had a blast, and the hotel was clean and accomodating. The halls were a bit noisy, but that was to be expected on new years night with all the drunk college kids in the hallways. There was a group of kids smoking in the hall of the hotel, i immediately called the front desk to let them know and the problem was taken care of. Will stay again! No fridge in room to keep drinks cold-but there was an ice machine!

Good deal

i stayed for a night - checked in at 7:00 pm and checked out at around 8 am the next morning. everything from the room service to the way the room was actually kept clean and ready was great. i had forgotten to pack a few toiletries and the staff were very prompt in getting me those (at no cost). the check in and check out process was fast and got completed in a blink. everything in the room worked - the iron (very very helpful), tv, etc..

my only suggestion would be for them to keep the room service hours for later than 10 pm - you cannot get food ordered after 10 pm. so keep that in mind.
