This place was great. I believe we Checked in with Ernesto who was very helpful suggesting things to do in the area. The rooms were extremely clean and quiet. A guy named Julian was very warm and pleasant upon check out. Overall a great experience. I would definitely stay here again.

There aren't really any pet friendly hotels within walking distance of downtown. We stayed here and enjoyed ourselves. The front desk guy was nice. The room was very clean. The Varsity is across the street. You can walk downtown. If we were to stay again I would request a room towards the end of the building. There aren't any grassy... More

Was in town on November 21, 2014 to see BlackBerry Smoke concert. Our trip was planned 2 months in advance and I searched the internet in advance to make reservations for our room. Did not book a room anywhere because of bad reviews on hotel/motels I checked out, decided to just go to Athens & hope for the best to... More

Hello, mchristy63! Thank you for staying with us and leaving such a kind review. We are happy to hear that we were able to get you in during the UGA football weekend, and for such a good rate!

I have stayed in many better hotels in the Athens area. We found the service to be lacking. Notably, our room was never cleaned the second day of our stay. The duvet covers were ripped and accent pillows appeared to be dirty. Additionally, this is a motel style property with exterior doors, yet there was no in-room safe.

Its kind of pricey for an outside door motel (although the people that came without a reservation received a much lower price that was probably more reasonable). The heater/air conditioner constantly running was very loud and it couldn't decide on a temperature either. That made it difficult to sleep. My son did like the waffle maker, but it was very...

We usually stay at this hotel when we are in Athen, GA. It is close to the university and clean and comfortable. The staff has always been very nice and the breakfast is small, but satisfying. The only problem we have ever had is a slow draining sink.

From the courteous front desk staff to the friendly housekeepers, everyone at this hotel made us feel welcome. The rates were extremely reasonable. The room we stayed in was unbelievably clean (and this is coming from a neat freak!). The breakfast was nice for complimentary, and it's my understanding that they'll serve hot breakfast once they add a tower to... More

It is a motel, and it definitely has the "motel feeling", I mean, I would say it is a 2 or 2.5 star hotel but the Best Western Athens was very clean and beds were very comfortable. We spent only one night in a room with two full-size beds. Since we were traveling with a baby, we moved the bedside... More

Enjoyed my stay. The hotel is directly opposite the Athens location of the Atlanta "institution" The Varsity. Downtown is about 8 blocks away down and up a hill. The front desk staff was very friendly. While an older hotel, the BW has been kept in good shape with a recent remodeling. The hotel will soon be replaced with a new... More
