Stayed three nights at the Courtyard Athens Downtown and it was quite nice. Good location about 3 blocks from downtown and a couple of blocks from the UG campus. Very friendly staff at the front and provided an upgraded room for my Marriott Platinum status. Breakfast area with Starbucks coffee just off the lobby. Outdoor pool and small fitness center...

This hotel is hidden just west of downtown. The entrance is off a one-way street, so you have to go around the back to get to it. It looks more like an apartment complex than a hotel. Price was decent. Rooms are very dated. It is also a kind of motel/hotel. For rooms on the ground floor, there is both... More

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your thought about our hotel. It is always a pleasure to get feedback from our guests. We are an older hotel with some of our ground floor rooms having both interior and exterior entrances and our hotel does not offer a free breakfast. We do offer some Stay for Breakfast Packages that... More

the room is clean and well appointed. This being a college town, parking space is a premium, Luckily I had my disabled parking permit. One large KING bed and nice flat screen TV. Wi-Fi easily hooked-up in the room. I love the one cup coffee maker, Very nice early in the morning. One thing that may seem strange to some,... More

We had stayed here in July for a couple of days. This is an okay hotel. I may not go back here, mainly due to the fact that the hotel is a bit far from downtown and UGA main campus. Otherwise, the room is good, the outdoor pool is awesome. The bistro serves Starbucks coffee. The breakfast choices at the... More

This is my second time staying here with my husband, and even though the location isn't that great, it makes up in its proximity to downtown with great restaurants. They need to work on improving the satellite beyond the 40 channels and better toiletries. The cleaning service is great and staff very accommodating.

Seems like it isn't in greatest part of town as you drive in to parking lot, but rooms are nice and comfortable and clean. Good little pool and very close to UGa. Lobby Starbucks had a great breakfast and the business center can in handy dandy for sure.

Stayed in the newer part of the hotel this time for a convention. Staff was professional and courteous. I actually wrote a note to management about how well I was treated. Still could use some improvements since my last stay two years ago. College town so not surprised by anything.

I spent the evening at the Courtyard while visiting UGA. While just two blocks from downtown, it's on the backside of a hill making it seem further away and a little isolated. It was quiet, but I didn't particularly care for the neighborhood. The property has both interior and exterior rooms and the parking lot is not closed off. I'm... More

Appears to be an old Quality Inn or Similiar. Love the layout and the flow of the property but it is not up to Marriott standards yet. My room did not even have hot water in the shower!! Not a good way to start the day. Called the front desk and the response was we will get maintenance to take... More

This room was very comfortable and clean. The bed was the best part....made good use of it. Enjoyed the pool just outside our door! The staff was very friendly and seemed happy to assist everyone with their needs.
