We stayed (1) night at the UGA Hotel and Conference center so we could take in a UGA baseball and women's basketball game. The location is perfect as it is walking distance to both venues. It was our first time staying at this Hotel and we could not have been more pleased. We rented two rooms - one being a... More

This is an older property that has been thoughtfully and tastefully updated. Daily parking is included in the room rate. The conference center is almost state of the art. The hotel staff is comprised of UGA students. They are plesant and efficient. The restaurant on site is adequate and reasonably priced, but Athens also offers many great food venues that... More

The best thing about the hotel, I'd say, is it's location. It's on campus and it's a great place to stay especially in conjunction with the conference center. The rooms are clean and comfortable though a little on the smaller side. The staff is friendly and helpful. Parking is extra but it is located in a parking deck right by... More

I stayed here for a business conference and had my wife with me and we both found it clean and comfortable with a polite staff. Plenty of restaurants nearby and we had a pass that let us in and out of the parking deck without having to pay!!! Whether this was included in our conference room rates or not, I... More

After 28 years of patronage, this may have been my best stay yet at the Georgia Center. Yes, it's a conference center and that is the mission, but unlike many conference hotels, the staff truly strives to make your stay a good one. The food is exceptional.

We stayed overnight after a wedding at the conference center. The room was clean, although small, and provided us with a place to sleep without driving after celebration with libration. All of the amenities that you would expect to find, including a very fast wifi connection. Breakfast in the conference center was adequate but not special.

My daughter wanted to visit UGA as part of her college tour, so I booked a room here so we could be right on campus. The hotel staff at the desk are students, which was an added bonus to see how they treated people. Everyone was very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. You do have to pay... More

Because my husband is a Dawg fan, I picked the Dawg suite at the hotel which is filled with pictures of the UGA mascot and other memorabilia. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the room not only had a separate bedroom but also had two bathrooms. The decor was nicely done with everything in black white and red but... More

We are staying here as part of a family wedding. We have 3 children and, thus, had to purchase a deluxe room to get a room with 2 queen beds (significantly more $$ than a King room -- about $30 more per night). The rooms are decent, the hotel is decent, but apparently we didn't pay enough to get our... More

I enjoyed my stay for the conference. I could not sleep at night due to the guy in the next room snoring. He was that loud and yes the ajoining room was that thin. I like the hotel but what good is a room when I cant sleep for class.
