Enjoyed my stay here. Was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness for the price I paid and service from all employees was above and beyond. I called direct and received a discount for the room I wanted that was priced higher on the internet.

I had a great stay in Athens at the Best Western. The front desk staff was very helpful when I checked in. They directed me to a great place to eat downtown, and printed out direction for my long trip the following morning. The Housekeeping staff was also very helpful with providing me with an extra towel. Looks like the... More

I had the misfortune of staying at this property recently and hope to avoid it in the future. The rooms are old and tired and the lobby is now in a next door since they plan on razing the current motel to build a new highrise. I went to breakfast the morning I was there and the dining room had... More

Knew they were remodeling. Knew we'd have to hike up the hill for breakfast. Room phone not working. No problem. Have cell. ICE machines not working. Called to ask, was told they SELL ice next door. Some service.

We stayed here attend a business meeting and at the same time visit family. At its price, very cheap! You really get what you pay for. Our room screams for renovation. Shower system is difficult to use. Water is either super hot or super cold. You had to slam the door to be able to close it tightly causing disturbance... More

Recently stayed here for an event at the University of Georgia. We had two rooms, neither had been cleaned thoroughly (hairs in the bathroom). The beds were worn out, with deep indentations and it was impossible to get comfortable. Breakfast was sparse, with very little cereal, no fresh fruit, and no skim milk. Although I've had wonderful experiences at other... More

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
