I had a conference that I had to attend at Athens State University. Since I live almost three hours away, I chose to get a hotel room for the conference. Best Western was an easy choice because the price was great. However, the hotel felt like it should have cost a good bit more! Everyone was so friendly, and the... More

We stayed here once before and liked it. We actually remembered where it was and stopped again for one night. A nice, clean, quiet hotel. Our bathroom was spotless, good water pressure and the bed was clean and comfortable. Hardee's, Ruby Tuesdays and Applebee's are all around. Just a walk across the side street or thru the parking lot. IHOP... More

Our second stay in six months proved to be as good as the first one. Clean room, friendly staff, and very convenient location. Just off of I-65 and next to Applebee's but very quiet! Pet friendly and plenty of green space for walking. Breakfast is OK but more than adequate since it's included with the price of the room. Will... More

Great place to stay right off the interstate. Quick check-in and very quiet. Clean rooms and no funny smells. Nice parking and lots of food close by. Overall a great place to stay for the price. Will definitely stay here again.

Call the hotel to make your reservation. Don't get involved with websites and other go-betweens. The hotel personnel were fine and the facility is OK for the price, but the website administators made certain our reservation was wrong.

Room #135. Ground floor. This room was comfy and clean. Excellent A/C! Although, this was an older hotel, the grounds were well kept. And the rooms were in good condition. Beds were surprisingly comfortable, great pillows! Also loved the fact that I was within walking distance of IHOP, Applebee's, ruby Tuesday, & more... The only down side to this room... More
