I have stayed in this hotel/conference center for my annual week-long work conference for 2 years now. And I have reservations made already for next year. I love it. My room and bathroom are always very clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful in everything they do! Our conference rooms are also great. I wouldn't stay anywhere else... More

I will never stay here again.... This hotel was mentioned in the paperwork my son received for orientation. I made my two night reservation, even though the price was a little higher than some other hotels I found on Tripadvisor. After the first night I got a notification from my bank that my credit card had been charged $ 50.00... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times before and have always enjoyed it. This time did not disappoint either! The staff is always friendly and great to help you with your bags, get you checked in, or suggest local places to eat. I am never disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel. The rooms have been upgraded somewhat recently... More

Great hotel in the heart of the country's greatest college town. We had some difficulty with our room key upon arrival and the staff had a technician stop by and had it fixed within our first 5 minutes in the room. Unlimited access parking is available in the adjacent parking deck for $10 a day. We stayed for 2 days... More

I stayed at this hotel for my daughters orientation. It is a good location if you have activities on the UGA campus , would be good for football game days. The hotel was clean but my room had a weird smell. You have to pay for parking in the adjacent parking deck and my room was a fair walk from... More

Small room and bathroom was challenging. If new to the area and campus it is a good idea. Could stay again just for convenience. Customer Service was acceptable. Most of the visitors appear to be alumni. I felt like the only parent in residence.

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!
