Pet Friendly Good Value

We were looking for an economical place to stay that was pet friendly (Our 4 legged family wanted to travel with Mommy and Daddy). The Microtel met the need. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would take our pups and stay there again if we returned to Athens. The pups thought it was great to travel with us.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

the Race Trac gas station on 78 is the nicest one I have ever seen. The staff is helpful and it has a wide selection of products.

This is my second time staying here. It is a fantastic hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, the rooms are a great size. Free wifi and breakfast coupled with a location that is convenient to downtown and amazing prices. A+++

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!! NEED A RATING LOWER THAN 1 STAR!!!

To start with, my request for a disabled access room was ignored. The desk clerk (I believe the GM) was rude and seemed put out that my parents needed to be on the first floor. He said he would "see what he could do" and asked for a few hours. When we returned to the hotel, there was still no room on the ground floor. He also said a refund was not possible, because you "had my money". When I said I would call you, he sighed disgustedly and and found what he called a room. The room had NO SMOKE DETECTOR/FIRE ALARM. Bare wires where it should have been sticking through the ceiling. The water to the toilet was turned off. No towels. Oh, and an industrial fan in the room due to the wet carpet. He said it was because it was recently shampooed, but the stains on the rug said otherwise. The next morning he said he had a better room, but this one was had one bed, not the two that I PAID FOR IN ADVANCE!! He did offer a roll away bed, but at 11:30 that evening, it had still not been put in the room. When we asked about it, we received the same irritated attitude from him, as if we were inconveniencing him. The only saving grace was that we did not book a longer stay! I would NEVER NEVER EVER recommend this DUMP to ANYONE!!! By the way, how do I get a refund for the difference in the room rates?

Subpar

Upon arriving after 3pm (check-in time), we were told the room was not ready. Then they somehow came up with a room, but it was not that great (smelled dingy, had a random lazyboy chair in it). Dogs barking two doors down and hallway door propped open all day (not safe). Front desk staff didn't seem to care. Stains on sheets, and breakfast was nothing to be desired (unless you like whole milk on your cereal). Wouldn't go back here again!

Ok, but could be better

We spent the night at MicroTel in Athens, GA. It was ok, could have been better. The smoking room really could have used about 7 cans of air freshner each time someone checks in and out. Whew, it was really strong. All in all it was ok, but not some award winning place.

Horrible experience!!

I booked two non-smoking rooms and received smoking rooms! I am allergic to smoke. I had to throw away my suitcase. I had to wash everything I took regardless if it was worn or not. My room had no blow dryer. The blow dryer in the other room caught on fire when we plugged it in. Really nice stay, don't you think!

Clean and friendly

This was a great place - the staff was friendly and the room was clean with comfortable beds. There is a large area in the front of the hotel for walking dogs. My dogs are big (both over 90 lbs) and not always welcomed - but everyone acted like they really liked them. The continental breakfast was nice, but there was a microwave and refrigerator in the room if you wanted to make your own thing. There is a Target across the street and several restaurants within a mile. It was perfect for what I needed.

Worst Microtel ever

The first clue is "If you have to ask for the sheets to be changed because they are dirty" there is a problem... Smelly, dirty room...worst Microtel I've seen.... Def not a 2 star hotel...

Good Value

You get what you pay for. This is a very affordable hotel, especially on game days. It's definitely not the 4 seasons but a good value if you're just looking for a place to sleep. I didn't notice any of the things mentioned in the negative reviews.
