I liked the simple elegant furnishings, with the academic motif in artwork. Also, all the in-room equipment was modern and efficient, but also with a touch of retro styling. Superb.

Walkable town with restaurants close by

I’ve been at this property at least five times and this is the dirtiest it has ever been. Stacks of trash in hallway stair case. Room musty. Very disappointing.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of downtown.

Charming place

I loved the staff. Having to pay for parking was unexpected. No breakfast amenities but excellent location. Decor was phenomenal!

The Graduate Athens was unique to any hotel I’ve stayed at in a very long time. Their staff was friendly & their rooms were super cute. I’ll definitely be back!

Whether one night or several- when visiting Athens, you can’t go wrong by choosing the Graduate for your stay. Unique downtown hotel with many quant items and a very accommodating and friendly staff.

We like how you can drive up and park right outside your hotel room.

Everything was unique! The room decor was really unusual and the bathroom was very nice. The king bed and bedding were both very comfortable

unique room decor, GReat location! Music hall on premise

Although there were some issues with housekeeping, the staff was extremely understanding and professional in their response. Overall the hotel is in a great location, quirky design and comfortable accommodations.

The location in Uptown Athens and free shuttle offered by the hotel to around town were the best features. The pool, though, had no towels. We took ours from the room, and when we called, it took a while before we received new ones. We had to eave for dinner we wsited so long.

Really one of the nicest staff experiences I have had. Clean, comfortable and amazingly affordable.

The Foundry and public areas along with the staff were awesome. But then we got to our room. Door had a major gap in it when shut, fridge was barely cold, we could here people walking above us constantly, dogs in other rooms barked throughout the night keeping us up, the hvac unit was broken so we either froze or were in a furnace throughout the night. There is a $10 parking fee, yet we weren’t able to park in front of our room(no assigned parking). I would go back, but I would expect a motel 6 quality(or less) with a great location and on site venues.

The Graduate is always my go to hotel in Athens. The only recommendation I would make would be to get a room away from the road to reduce the traffic noise.

This place was perfect for our family (2 adults/2 kids). Great venue on location for live music and craft beer on tap!
