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.

We stay at this location several times a year. The staff treat us like family. The location is central to the university and vet school. The location allows pets, and we have often taken our pets to the vet school at UGA. We always stay here due to the staff caring about our pets. We have had difficulty with the... More

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

Me and my husband frequently go down 441 to Florida and routinely stop in Athens being the cute city that it is. We always choose to stay at the Best Western because it is an affordable and comfortable option for us.

Stayed here while on business in Athens, and was pleasantly surprised at how accommodating the place was for such a low rate in comparison to what I usually pay when traveling. Definitely recommend this place, and will be back for sure when on sales calls in the Athens area. Beds were super comfortable, plenty of hot water, and super staff.

Price played a big role in choosing this hotel since we were only passing through for one night. The room and bathroom were clean at acceptable standards. I wasn't expecting anything fancy, but the decor is just so tired and sad. The front desk personnel were pleasant enough, but the fellow guests lounging in the stairwells and hallways drinking made... More

Stayed there with my wife on our trip back from Canada to Florida. Price was okay. Obviously the Motel has seen better days. Carpet was stained so you couldn't go barefoot. At the walls were the rests of dead mosquitos, spiders or other flying insects. Shower was a bit small. When you closed the door you could see, that the... More
