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

Thank you for your contribution seriousworldwanderer! Like you mentioned, we are directly opposite the famous Varsity restaurant and their chili dogs are a a very popular choice among our guests. We will soon be going under a major construction project that will feature a 7 story tower that will sit right on Milledge Avenue- we hope you are able to... More

I'm never disappointed at any Best Western, and it held true here. The entire property was very neat and clean. Our room and bath were both immaculate. I made my reservation while driving and the young man held my reservation, even though arriving late, with only my name, no credit card, as I was having a hard time getting to... More

Nothing fancy. Rooms were decent and adequately cleaned. Good location to visit University of Georgia. Breakfast was not good- no place to sit and few options. I booked for the price and would stay again- The rooms were fine. Not a luxury hotel but more than adequate.

This hotel is right near UGA campus, and one block from our daughter's sorority house, so it is perfect. Everyone was so nice and friendly. The property was clean, very well lit, safe, and comfortable.

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western in downtown Athens over the weekend. We absolutely loved the fact that we were so close to the downtown area and for such a good price. The rooms were clean and the bed was one of the best I have ever slept on. The free breakfast was very simple, but the... More
