Very helpful staff, front desk check in was very nice, thats unusual for people to be nice to people that looks like me. The house keeping ladies were super friendly, and helpful. Can tell this place is under good management

Very clean room and bath. Front desk staff was extremely helpful. Close to downtown so you can walk to restaurants and bars. Ample parking. Breakfast was plentiful, offered a variety, and taste good. Gym / workout room was well-maintained. No concern about staying here again.

So, the hot water was not very hot. The air conditioner did not get very cold and it was set on 60 when we arrived. It never even got close to that. The beds were comfortable though and it had a decent breakfast.

Very Clean. Staff very nice. Just a few min. Walk from downtown

Everything was awesome!! Only I could change if I could’ve stayed longer

Exceptionally clean, reasonable rates, staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Clean and pleasant environment. Breakfast was not that great. Surprised by the additional parking fee.

It was very clean with new and modern furniture and amenities

Its OK to stay at this hotel if you don't have enough money to pay a better hotel.

Nothing really exceptional. Nice staff. Room is older and a little drafty.

very friendly and excellent breakfast; staff were attentive and the rooms were clean and comfortable

Holter is walking distance to downtown Athens. Very nice staff amd rooms.The breakfast is ok,but I would recommend going out over it.

This is one of my go to hotels when returning home. The hotel staff is always pleasant. The hotel is old but decently kept up - no funny odors or large inexplicable stains on the carpet. The area is relatively quiet. This last stay was a little less than up to par for the hotel. The shower was slow draining and after I was in the shower with water past my ankles, I took the 2 minutes needed and cleaned out the big wad of hair in the drain. This usually means to me that the maid is not cleaning the shower after someones stay because I would think a slow drain would be noticed if you are cleaning a shower. It did put me off a little bit and cleaned the shower my self. This is also the first time I have used the elevators because of a knee injury. The elevators are slow and rickety at best. They do get you up and down but not without causing you moments of worry about their safety. Overall tho, I would stay again and would recommend the hotel to others.

In the heart of downtown. Close to shopping and restaurants.
