Clean and comfortable enough, very basic. Breakfast was average to better than average

Convenient access off highway, large fridge and varied breakfast options

I didn’t find anything unique about the property. It was clean. The service was fine. Just a place to sleep without paying a fortune.

Location.

We stayed for a mid trip rest, just for a night, and it serves the purpose. It wasn't anything special but it was good. My only complaint was a very limited breakfast..it was hard to wven call it that. Jist dry cereal amd coffee.

Property was very clean. Breakfast was excellent. Plan to stay here on our next trip.

One night stop on our way to Florida over Spring Break. It is right off the highway. The evening attendant had that perfect Southern warm and friendly demeanor. Checkin was easy peasy. You get to the rooms from the outside of the building, no elevators that we saw, but it wasn't an issue for us. There is an Applebees right next door that you walk to that was really good. We had a little wait and without even saying anything, the waiter said since we'd had to wait so long to be waited on he would give us the Vacation discount, so that was a nice surprise. Really friendly and the food was great. The breakfast at the hotel was a grab and go, but you have a menu to order from, and they packaged it up for us. Pretty good; cereal, milks juices, muffins, fruit, hot breakfast sandwiches etc. When we turned on the TV the next morning the remote wouldn't do anything other than turn to the Weather Channel. The same gentleman that had checked us in from the night before came up very quickly to the room and brought a new remote. So nice, and fast service! The cons were the toilet never stopped running from the time we arrived to left, the air conditioner was quite noisy, and my shower was like Russian Roulette, one minute it was cold, then it would switch to hot, and at one point, scalding hot. It will be sure to wake you up and make you pay attention. I would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room very clean. Parking convenient.

Location was good, but no elevators so if you have a lot of luggage it's inconvenient

My stay in Athens was excellent. No problems whatsoever. Keep up the good work!

Great customer service. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Has all the basic needs for a one night stay. Very clean. Convenient room entry and close to interstate 65 exit. Several restaurants close by. Pets welcome. Even has smoking rooms! What a great consumer friendly hotel.

The rooms are newly re done very nice. The coffee is very good and the nice free breakfast

The breakfast is great. The rooms were not ready at 3:00 - had to wait until 4:00. The front desk staff was not helpful in directing us to room location.

Requested non smoking, but room was smoking. Horrible smell. Kids couldn’t sleep.

We had no issues with our room, but 3 members of our party switched rooms due to issues.

It was much nicer than you would think. Would stay there again!

This is a stop over on way to Florida and back home.
