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. I always call because the clerks have matched what I'm seeing on the internet, and that makes me feel... More

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

For the price -low it was ok for a short stay, looks like they will build a new building with indoor hallways. Breakfast could be better. Staff was friendly and accomodating let us late checkout at 1pm. Rooms are clean

Made reservations because it was advertised as dog friendly (as most Best Westerns are) and it was fairly close to our destination in Winder. What a mistake. First for dog friendly. There is no space for the dogs to go!!!!!. Rooms are on a big hill so you have to walk up the hill and either sneak onto the very... More
