I guess I might be a little hard on this hotel in this review, but after reading the glowing reviews and it being number one on TripAdvisor, I chose it for a recent stay - expecting to experience more than I did. The hotel was nice, the room comfortable, but everything was average. I did not experience the "wow," service... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago on our way to visit family in Florida. I was not familiar with this brand, as I have mostly stayed at Hiltons and Marriott's. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, at how nice this hotel was. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. The rooms were... More

I have had to stay in Athens 4 times this year for business and a few times last year. A few weeks ago, I tried this hotel for the first time. WOW, I was shocked. I didn't know Athens had a high end hotel like this! It is kind of hidden and not on the main road. It was really... More

I have stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Athens, GA on numerous occasions including last summer when I need to be in town for 3 weeks for family. The hotel is clean and very well run. The staff is friendly, helpful and went beyond the call of duty for me. The manager was extremely nice as well. I... More

I stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago while in Athens for business and I was surprised when I checked in on this trip, the front desk agent Leslie greeted me with a smile and said welcome back Mr. Lewis glad to see you again. She handed me a fresh HOT cookie and my rooms keys. It was... More

I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for a colleague at the Country Inn & Suites. What a perfect location and hotel. Here are my opinions: Location: It is tricky to get to if you do not travel down Old Epps Bridge as your GPS might send you to the other Epps Bridge. Be sure you have the... More

I reviewed this motel a year and a half ago and thought it was the best I had ever stayed in. After my recent stay, I think not. Last time, I was given a suite without realizing it. Big difference. This time I arrived after a crowded weekend. The place was not clean: dishes on the floor in the hallway... More

Thank you for the review and for your business, again. I apologize this time was not as pleasant as the first visit. I have since changed the policy about housekeeping leaving things out in the hallway while cleaning. We are also in the process of upgrading the internet system too. We hope to see you again on a future visit.... More

I'm torn regarding my review of this place. The employees were friendly and my suite was roomy with a comfy bed. Breakfast was the basic continental with great oatmeal. But here's the main problem: when I checked in, the gentleman who helped me said my room number aloud, not one but twice. There were people within hearing distance, and even... More
