My daughter and I stayed at the Graduate the night before a college tour, and we could not have been more delighted. It was the most charming and distinctive hotel we have ever visited, and we can't wait to come back!!!

I was unsure at first. The decor looked like a college door in the picture from the website. But man was I wrong. Each room does look like the pictures. All of the furnishings are very high quality and well put together by the decorator. The bed was great and the staff was even better. Worried about the noise, rooms... More

We stayed here for a wedding and it was fabulous! Great location, funky decor and very quiet considering the number of people staying there. The onsite bar had a great bar tending staff and we enjoyed the band very much! Definitely recommend!

This was my first time staying at the Graduate Athens but I will return. From the decor to the food at the Foundry, my stay was most enjoyable. The staff was extremely helpful and I was able to get some great recommendations during my stay. I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a unique, fun, inviting place to... More

Great place this. Rooms are well positioned next to an old Foundry. We had free entry to the musice venue as guests, which was great. (We are on a music orad trip from UK) Rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. Interesting decor. Most of al you could walk downtown and leave the car behind.

This hotel was recommended by the wedding couple for the wedding party, as the rehearsal dinner was on site. First, this is not a "hotel". This is a "motel". You enter rooms from outside. Rooms we're decorated in coegr themed decor. Cut idea, but not very comfortable. The beds were okay-but made crunchy noises when you moved. When the guests... More

We found this by accident on the web and loved it. It will now be our "go to" place to stay in Athens. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was a little bit of a challenge but a wonderful staff member named Paul was out in the rain making sure we had somewhere to park. The decor is quirky... More

Very good location. Unfortunately the restaurant was not available due to a Drag Bingo party. Reason we picked this hotel was for an onsite restaurant since we had been travelling all day from New Orleans.

Good Afternoon, Jeannine C Thank you for taking the time to share you experience with us. We really appreciate your feedback. I'm glad you found our location pleasing. You can't beat it, walking distance to the attractions, but just far enough out that you don't have to deal with the craziness of downtown Athens. I'm sorry you didn't have a... More

Wouldn't have found this place without TripAdvisor. A funky, fun, independent hotel that followed theme to bring back college memories from 60's and 70's. Card catalog in lobby, student ID cards for room keys, blackboard with chemical formulas. Rooms are clean, cute, updated. Lobby and dining repurposed from a pre-civil war foundry.
