I accompanied my husband on a trip to Athens. The hotel is nice and clean but the rooms are very small. They were very nice to allow me a late check out since the hubs was at a conference in the hotel all day. That being said housekeeping started cleaning in our hallway at 8 am and were very loud....

Staff was very nice and helpful. Room size was fair, though sink area a little tight for 4 people. The mold line in the shower tile was a bit surprising. The one significant recommendation we can give is to ask if the kitchen will be cleaning out the grease trap while you're there as the smell is nauseating. We would... More

This is a little older hotel, but very nicely appointed. We were in town due to a fire at my parents home, so we couldn't stay with them. All the other hotels, except the Hilton, were full due to a HS conference going on. This wasn't my first choice, but turned out well. The rooms are small, especially the bathrooms,... More

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your experiences at our hotel on your recent trip to Athens. The hotel was built in 1957 and we do have some smaller rooms from that era that are priced appropriately for their size. We have added an additional wing to the property that offer traditionally sized hotel rooms with... More

Mr. Basha, I like to begin by apologizing for the misconception about the inquiry with you concerning the missing foot quilt from the room you occupied with us March 8 - 11th. Upon your departure our housekeeping department reported the missing item and I instructed my Front Desk Manager, utilizing the information we had on file for you, to contact... More

I stayed at the UGA hotel for a week-long conference. The rooms were very small for a week stay, but they did have a small refrigerator and microwave. Housekeeping was prompt and did a good job keeping the room up. The walls are not well insulated, so you can hear the TV and people in the rooms beside yours. The... More

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

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.
