We were in town for a UGA college tour and this was recommended by a former graduate. Although not in the heart of downtown Athens (but extremely close), a coffee shop, breakfast, lunch, dinner, wifi, and live show were all available. Uber was very fast and inexpensive ($6) if you don't want to walk or drive to restaurants or bars... More

Best decor, location, amenities and the beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the decor/ feel was so much fun. I can't wait to go back! If you stay, be sure to get an iced latte, too. Delicious!

Four retired friends found the neatest accommodations ever in a town I have visited all of my life! Two of us were graduates, literally, one had some classes there and one transplant from Alabama, who was educated in Mississippi, needed to stomp down memory lane and make new sites as well. This made the perfect little bedroom for us. From... More

Can't comment on the property per se because I never was able to reach a knowledgeable reservationist. Started when the establishment solicited me with an e-mail for a special summer rate if I reserved by a certain date. I called after work one evening and the reservationist had no information regarding the special and advised I call the hotel. and... More

I stayed here for one night, and I have to say the decor of the lobby area and the room was probably the cutest of any hotel I've ever stayed. Everything from the bed to the wallpaper in the bathroom. Super comfy and cute and the staff was really friendly. I'd recommend this to anyone staying in Athens.

The Graduate Athens was chosen for wedding we were attending, it was close to our functions and other buildings that family members had fond memories of. We were able to eat at The Grill, my son-in-law enjoyed when he attended UGA, my husbands brother worked at UGA.

Graduate Athens served as the main hub for our wedding weekend. The staff was extremely accommodating, the accommodations were spectacular and the convenience of hosting multiple events there was unbeatable.

Stay away from the bottom floor suite in the guest house unless you enjoy glowing exit signs staring you in the face while you sleep. Walls are uber thin. Fireplaces in photos are inoperable. The lounge/coffee shop/wine bar is a fun space to people watch and the food and snacks are good. Overall, the hotel is so hipster Athens that... More

Upon arrival to The Graduate you are immediately transorted back in time to a period when life was fun and the world was innocent. The funky retro decor in the guest rooms makes you want to put on your saddle oxfords and do the Twist. The Graduate is a welcome addition to the Athens area.
