My husband and I chose to stop in Athens on our way home from Disney World. We booked our room on Trip Advisor based on their ratings and price. The other three hotels that were rated "very good" to "excellent" were $20-$40 more expensive for the night. I have to say, based on our past experiences with cheaper hotel rooms,... More

The stay at this hotel was absolutely delightful. The unicorn petting zoo was an interesting touch, but made for a memorable trip. I am a bit concerned that their sharp horns might be a safety risk for children. But all in all it was a great experience.

This is a very nice property and very well managed. GREAT shower, GREAT bed and TV in the rooms- I was VERY pleased and will be back for sure. For what it's worth I noticed a lot of snowbirds who were passing through from Illinois and Indiana so apparently they've discovered this hotel also and liked what they see!

The staff was most accommodating and extremely helpful. We were driving in the snowstorm and weren't sure we would make it to Athens, Alabama. The front desk manager told us if we couldn't make it not to worry just stay safe. Breakfast was a nice addition. Did not use the Wi-Fi.

The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. They are remodeling so there is a little "dust" on the outside to excuse but the hotel is very clean and affordable. I have stayed at this same hotel 5 times since October 2015 and have never had a complaint.

We only stayed one night, but have to say this was one of the nicer BW's we've stayed in. Room was immaculately clean, everything worked as it should. Nice to have an elevator, many don't. Price was reasonable. Morning breakfast was o.k., but the scrambled eggs were a bit tough. Fresh juice was a nice touch, though.

Stayed overnight on way from WI to FL. Facility is in process of being renovated. Our room was recently completed and carpet had a new chemical smell that hurt my eyes, but that subsided the longer I was in the room. Had a fridge but no microwave. Extremely comfy pillows--- loved them! Ask for a first level room and you... More

We were on our way from northern Ohio to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and stopped here for the night. The staff was friendly and got us checked in and in our room with no holdup. The next morning, we had the normal good BW breakfast with eggs, sausage, biscuits & self made waffles. We will be back.

Clean, quiet, comfortable beds and dog friendly (ask for a pet friendly room - they are limited). Really nice room for all of us. Had laminate floors so I didn't worry about what was left in the carpet from other pets. Ground floor level made it easy to get in and out with a dog. Very nice stay.
