First time using trip advisor, we were so happy we tried Best Western !! The staff took care of our needs as we traveled to Florida from southern Indiana. Pleasant surprise the rooms were remodeled, great morning breakfast, and clean thanks to trip advisor we found Best Western Inns great value for the price

The cleanliness and location of the hotel were great for our needs. Price was also good for a week night. Older, refurbished room which was well supplied with all amenities needed. Recommend...not a large room but adequate and again, very clean and well air conditioned.

Nice to have a clean room, strong shower, finely decorated, plenty of towels and hot or cold breakfast in the a.m. with lots of variety of foods. Construction going on so little confusing with two entrances.

Overall, Good value for the money, would have liked to have had more and better choices for the breakfast. Sometimes you had to wait a few minutes for coffee. Rooms were quiet and clean and parking was very good..

I was really anxious about staying at this hotel. I read reviews but because it seemed like a older hotel I was worried and almost changed my reservation. Well the place was decent so Im glad I didn't pay more at another hotel. Check in and out was painless. The room was clean and comfortable. We even had a Jacuzzi... More

Great price for the hotel being so close to downtown and UGA. When we checked in the first room's bathroom had a urine smell to it. The front desk put us into a new room with no problems and that one smelled much better. We stayed several nights and had no other issues. When checking in they also accepted the... More

I have stayed at Best Western Hotel before in another city and this one was very disappointing. From the time we pulled up to the time we checked in I felt let down from the appearance and first impression. The rooms smelled like old smoke and I just did not feel as comfortable as I would have liked to. I... More

The room was clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. They do have Wifi but it's not a very strong signal. They were doing renovations at the time I was there, so it was a bit of a mess at the entrance. The beds were comfortable.
