Best Western Athens

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Avoid this hotel until they are finished with the renovations. The actual hotel is closed and they are using a motel property for their rooms at full hotel prices. My room had ants crawling up and down the walls. The only other available room had a previous occupant who was a smoker.

The hotel is building a new wing so they have ignored the old part. Room was stuffy and smelly. Bug in the bathroom and bed was unconformable I will say the staff was very nice and friendly and the breakfast was very good.

Poor parking, contractors for new hotel parking in guest spots. In the kind of shape you would expect for a hotel that is going to be demolished when the new one is complete.

Room was old and dirty. Did not get cleaned on second day.

For the money, I would stay here again. The staff weren't very organized (I booked through Orbitz) and that cause computer issues on their end. But nevertheless the staff figured it out and we would stay here agoan

Don't get thrown by the empty parking lot. The front desk is in a different place than the buildings with the rooms. The rooms themselves are fine - very standard, basically well-appointed and comfortable. However, the location isn't great. You'll need transportation to get around.

Really o dd layout. Rooms nicely redecorated and clean, but other than continental breakfast, there are no amenities -- no restaurant, bar, pool, etc. Staff very friendly and efficient, but would not stay there again. Have stayed in much nicer places for better price.

My stay was relaxing and enjoyable. It was a great get away. Was in town on pleasure.

Great stay, staff very helpful. Main building separated from rest of hotel by construction.

They were doing some remodeling which was a little inconvenient but nice room and staff.

I was in town on business. Room was clean. Staff was great. Location was excellent. It was only 3 miles from where I needed to go. Thanks.

great location remodeling in process ok for one night stay

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.

Very good value. Hotel was clean, quite and convenient. Friendly and courteous staff.

Good value to just spend a night and then head out but I would not recommend it as a getaway hotel. It did have a fridge and microwave. Bring your own body wash because they do not provide any.

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a typical minimal continental breakfast. I was only woken up at night from outside noise once during my stay (5 nights total). If you're on a budget, the Best Western is a decent place to stay.

Good location. Friendly staff member. Internet access was out.

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!

Great price for a great and super clean hotel! Staff was very friendly. Area was not the greatest, but I never felt unsafe during my stay!

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area again. Beds are only double sized, but they are comfortable.
