It was nightmare, dirty room, rude & unhelpful stuff, bad management, I made checkout around 6 pm to shift to other hotel after paying for total day, they make construction just next to our door without mentione that! So it was also noisy and dusty. Dont let map picture cheat you because they removed all sport facilitiy and make construction... More

I have used this facility on several business trips and it always exceeds my expectations. The front desk workers are pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was very good and I will definitely stay again on my next trip.

The motel is a dump. I will not stay there again. For $217 I got an unmade room and an injury because of no mat in the tub. The parking was lousey because of the narrowness of the space..The room had a strong Clorox odor.

This is one of the oldest motels in Athens, All the rooms have outside entrances. They are building a new "tower," and surely everything will be much improved. The room and bath were tiny, far too small for the furniture, and difficult to navigate. The iron was ensconced in it's holder a few inches from the ceiling with no way... More

The room looked clean and smelled good. I always check the beds first, 1st bed had dark long hairs in it, 2nd looked fine. I called... More

I have used this BW for over 10 years for business and have never been disappointed. They have recently started construction and plan to expand. I think its great for the city and owners. I will continue to use this property on my trips to Athens, GA, work or pleasure.

If you aren't planning to stay somewhere for vacation and hang out at the hotel, this is a good place to stay. Most people in Athens are there for a purpose- visit college, event, or work- and this hotel is perfect for that. It was quiet despite being close to the college, adequate continental breakfast, and clean rooms with a... More

Was surprised to see the location of this hotel in Athens in the heart of U of G and across the street from the iconic Varsity! It was under new construction but was surprisingly quiet and staff was excellent! Unfortunately we had to miss breakfast - but Best Westerns always have wonderful breakfasts included in their price. beds were comfortable... More

Under Construction, but still Super Nice! I stayed in Room 126 on Saturday this weekend and couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. Both the Office Staff and House Keeping were very friendly and the room itself was immaculate. Soaking in Hot Water was fantastic after a long day of shopping downtown, and the bed was super comfortable. Thanks for... More

We spent a night in Room 105 of this hotel, which is more “motel” style as access to all rooms is from the outside. The room was small and clean but we found it to be a bit gloomy, even with every lamp lit. The king size bed was comfortable enough and the room contained a couch, coffee table, microwave... More
