Good room, good location, good price. Restaurant was closed due to a catered event which was ok but the bar was closed as well so it was difficult to get an evening drink. Came to visit daughter living in Athens and met up with another couple. Room were recently renovated and clean.

Stayed here for a few nights while attending a family wedding. The rooms were nice, but basic. They could have gotten a higher rating by having a better breakfast situation. All they have is a coffee bar with a few pieces of fruit and muffins.

What a great place to stay. Everything was cleverly designed, clean, and superior in quality. Restaurant onsite with music. We took a nap so we could stay up later to enjoy dinner and grammy music playing on a Thursday night! How cool was that!

We stayed the weekend before Memorial Day. The weather has been in the 80's for most of May, so I don't understand why the pool wasn't open. Even worse, they were preparing to open the pool, had put chemicals in it, but there was no notice posted to not use it. Only because another couple had been warned (about 5... More

Went for the Classic City Beer Festival. Been going for many years. Great venue. Shuttle service excellent. Plan to stay again next time we go. I like the smell of the lotion and shampoo. Wish it was for sale

Our family just had a great visit at the Graduate Athens. It was a weekend wedding and we used every amenity they had. The Hoyt House was a wonderful place for the bride and her attendants to stay, with a party room, multiple bedrooms - and space for hair and make-up to be done. The event rooms were appropriately sized.... More

This is an old style motel, with an adorable overhaul. Due to the layout and several special events (wedding reception & Republican Convention) is was somewhat loud and parking was very crowded. We couldn't eat at the hotel as it was booked for a private event. Great place for an event or a large group.

I was impressed by the Graduate from the minute I walked into the lobby. Super cool decor, very funky and eclectic, and we were greeted at the front desk by a guy who seemed genuinely happy to see us, and honestly eager to make sure we had a great stay. The lobby was a nice space, well laid out and... More

Much preferred the Foundry Park. Decor is funky...in a bad way. Parking is a nightmare. Location is good and they are pet friendly. Hate that they inflate their prices so much for certain stays, but all Athens hotels do this.
