A recent charity event brought my wife and myself to Athens. When our dog, the escape artist, freed herself from our room, the staff did a prompt and excellent job contacting us to let us know! The rooms were clean to a high standard and the service staff were courteous and polite. I couldn't ask for a better experience!!

The Graduate was such a breath of fresh air. I like an upscale hotel with the extra features like triple sheeting. This place was so much fun! The details, down to the school notepad in the room and the great bathroom wallpaper, were on point. Great location and price. We will certainly stay here again and would recommend it to... More

The Graduate is a funky and cozy hotel stay with an adorable cafe and a clean new fitness room. There is a bar and restaurant on the premise as well as social halls for music events and such. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff is friendly.

I understand the kooky nature of the post modern/retro design, but staring at the portraits of those people from the console gave me the creeps. I think I will definately stay someplace next time less kitchy.

Rooms smell old and musky. There were baby roaches in our sink and tub. But that is expected for an older hotel. But for the price we paid I was surprised. The rooms on the website looked new and fresh but in person looked like anage hotel with new lipstick. The front office was nice and trendy but had to... More

The Graduate has clean rooms, an excellent location to downtown, a host of personal services on their site for enjoyment and employees that are outstanding. I always recommend family and friends to enjoy the Graduate.

Good location, beautiful rooms, loved the Keurig in the room. Wish there would be a frig for summer months. We were there for a FlyBall Tournament which is a relay racing sport for Dogs. Our dogs loved the place too. Plenty of walking area, not much if any outside noise. Our tournament competitors favorite place to stay.

Went for a wedding. The entire event was on site, with good music/party venue, beautiful room for the ceremony. The hotel rooms were quite comfortable, although for some reason the heat was set at over 80 degrees when we got there. Whole atmosphere was very welcoming, cozy, and a bit funky (in a very good way) with the retro, college-oriented... More
