We stood in line for hours in blazing sun. Save your money and go to Ripley's Aquarium of The Smokies. Felt like we were being herded like cattle. Not very good aquarium. Only positive was the dolphin show. It was very well put together and entertaining.

We were in town cheering for the Dawgs in the baseball game against Florida. Staying on campus was kind of fun and my husband said he felt like he was back in his old dorm, just a nicer version - ha! Because we were traveling with two small children, we decided to book a handicap double queen room. Best decision!... More

We came in for a single night stay to see a concert in town. The hotel staff from the front entrance to the desk to the housekeeping staff were all friendly and welcoming. The room we had was just a tad small for our liking, but the king sized bed was comfortable and the bathroom was upgraded. Having a small... More

The conference center hotel is in a good location if you're visiting the university or attending a conference. But the rooms are sorely in need of a renovation. They're also quite small, and subject to hallway noise. They were clean, so good basic accommodations.

On my first visit to this hotel last year I was assigned an old room that had not undergone renovation. On my most recent trip I was assigned an updated room. My understanding is that not all of the hotel has undergone renovations, so your experience may very well depend on the room you are assigned upon check in. If... More

This hotel was rather promising, but did not live up to my expectations. The room was extremely small with no closet, and there was a great deal of noise from the hallway. The on site dining options were very limited and somewhat overpriced. The shuttle, however, was rather convenient, although it is limited in terms of destinations and hours. The... More

Awesome location and great staff. Shuttle very convenient. The University of Georgia campus is beautiful and this hotel is snuggled right in the middle of it. Great for campus visits. Fills up quickly on game days.

While the rooms were on the small side, we were there to tour campus so not a big deal. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shuttle will take you anywhere on campus so no messing around with parking. Note the shuttle only runs til 10p so after that you're walking or übering. Would stay there again.

I came here for a provessional event and I stayed for 2 nights. Both nights were very noisy, with people talking on the corridor between 11 pm and 3 am, doors slammed etc. Unfortunately the great service does not make up for this aspect. The walls are thin. The room was very clean, the hotel looks renovated, the restaurant food... More
