Quality Inn Athens

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel staff was very friendly. The room was old, needs major updating! Bed was lumpy, pillows were not comfortable. It was clean for the most part but again furniture is very old, lamps old, fridge is old falling apart. Breakfast was minimal and not appealing. Bathroom shower fixtures are old, took us 10 min to figure out how to turn shower on. For a one night stay for sleeping, it serves the purpose but it was not worth the money we paid for the night. Area is sketchy and on a very busy road, lots of truckers with trucks and lots of restaurants. There was a freezer truck right outside our room that ran all night long! The only thing that saved us was that we were in an upstairs room and the noisy air conditioner drowned out the Truck!

Room could have used a closer cleaning more so in the tub shower area, but I would stay again with no problem's

Its within walking distance to McDonalds and Waffle House. But the free breakfast they provide is excellent! This hotel had the friendliest staff I've ever seen. Great stay.

We stayed in room number 121 was nice, but we had share the room with a little gray mouse who was eating our snacks. Had to put them into the fridge. Breakfast was wonderful.

Close to highway 65. Comfortable vand clean room. Helpful staff.

As long as you want to be up at 7:00, this place is great. I asked for a quiet room but got one right in the heart of all the outside parking lot noise - big trucks, loud people, slamming car doors, etc.

Carpet stained used soap wrapper was nearny the bed. 2nd floor with no elevator is hard on us seniors.

Excellent accomodations for an overnight stay enroute to Ft. Walton Beach!

Very pleasant stay during our trip to Florida. Would stay again.

This location was very convenient to stay when I was checking my new job out in athens

Stayed here while traveling for Thanksgiving. Was a great value for the price. Have stayed at many places that charged close to double to get the same amenities that I got here.

We had very few needs so I can't write glowing remarks about the service. We did enjoy 2 comfortable nights of rest and a good breakfast each morning. I also appreciated the convenience of a computer and printer to print out my boarding passes.

Hotel was decent. Not as bad as others in the area. Very easy to get to. Breakfast was great! Lots of choices. The room was ok. I hung the service hanger on the door and no one ever came to change the sheets or give us new towels, but they took the door hanger..funny how that worked. The shower had a crack in the roof. Other than that it worked fine for me.

Good, clean hotel. Breakfast was not the greatest, but was good. Tiny pillows, but the beds were comfortable. Overall a good experience.

Upon checking in the very first thing I noticed was how clean the front desk area was! It smelled like lemons! Desk clerk was very polite and our check in was very quick! The room was just what we needed-a bed for the night-we picked a downstairs non smoking room, however I think whoever may have stayed there last smoked because my nose stopped up immediately! Other than that, room was very clean and bathroom was immaculate. Morning desk clerk and housekeeper were awesome as well! The only problem was the dumpster being dumped at 6 am...that will definitely wake you up!

It was an intermediate stop on a trip to FL. The room was clean, quiet and the staff was friendly.

We sincerely apologize for the extra guest you had in your room. Rest assured we have taken all the necessary guidelines and procedures to see that this doesn't happen again. We do understand that we are an exterior corridor hotel, but that leaves no excuse. We hope when you return back to our establishment you will be able to enjoy yourself.
