I attended a conference at the Georgia Center and misplaced my watch during the conference. Alma from housekeeping, Kirby and Jacob from the front desk were amazing in helping me recover my watch! The wait staff in the dining room were also exceptional. They accommodated the food and drink requests graciously and with such a pleasant attitude. Great experience!

You will love your stay at the UGA Hotel and if you are lucky enough to dine in the Magnolia room, ask for Win Hart. He is a fantastic server! No request was to big for Win. If you are in the area, you should book a room!

We found the rooms clean and in excellent condition. Prices were excellent, especially accommodating to the military. The facilities were outstanding and the restaurants appeasing and very price friendly. The employees were extremely friendly and eager to help with anything we asked of them. Management was also eager to please. The only negative I experienced was the fact that there... More

I've attended a management school at the UGA Conference Center for 3 years and each time has been a pleasure! It is a huge benefit to stay at the same hotel that our classes are being held and it's a cherry on the sundae when the accommodations are clean and comfortable too! I have to say the biggest delight to... More

This is a reasonably nice venue to stay at. Best internet speed of any hotel I have stayed at. A couple of restaurants on site and others within walking distance. If you are a smoker the grounds are smoke free so you will need to go off site to smoke. Parking is fairly expensive at $10 per day.

Stayed one night in King Room @ $99 after dropping my daughter off at swim camp. Took the free hotel provided shuttle to downtown for dinner and walked back through the beautiful campus which took about 15 minutes. Staff was was great and I really enjoyed my stay. I'm not sure what the rates would be during the school year,... More

My Grand-daughter and I were in Athens for 2 nights for a campus tour and to get a feel for UGA and Athens too. This hotel was a perfect location for our base. We had separate rooms immediately across from each other (thank you, management!) and the convenient free shuttle got us here and there easily and quickly. Plus all... More

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.
