Room had knats and moths flying around and cob/spider webs in all corners of the room. Bath tub was very slow to drain and so was the sink. There was insect dropping in the corner of the bath room housekeeping had to be called to sweep cob/spider webs down.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this Best Western several times and I have not been disappointed. I have been assisted and help with all my needs by Tripp, Julian, and Ernesto. All three have been professional and very accommodating. I experience a very satisfying rest and would say the beds that I have sleep on while at... More

Right when I checked in, I was impressed by how friendly the employee at the main desk was. It's a small thing, but I think it makes a big difference when staff members make conversation with you and it doesn't seem forced. The room looked exactly like it did in the pictures online. One thing I liked is that they... More

For my stay here I had a good experience with the staff, the room was well kept, and it was a problem free stay. I've stayed at a few other hotels around town but this is definitely a good value for good service.

We stayed here for one night while attending the music festival Athfest. Staff was helpful. Room was clean. All the rooms have outdoor entry, but we were on the second floor so I didn't mind it. The desk chair was very large and wouldn't go under the desk so it was hard to walk around the bed. Minor thing really... More

I came to Athens to help my son find a house to purchase prior to his relocating in August. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant and informative upon our arrival.

The staff, from check-in to check-out , was most professional, kind and coureous. They never seemed too busy and gave me their undivided attention. For this I am most grateful. I am acquainted with Manager, Liz Moore. She has recruited a top-notched staff which serves the Best Western corporate motel industry well. I thin this location should receive national recognition.... More
