This hotel is a great value for downtown Athens. Lots of local culture right within walking distance. The hotel was a little bit on the older side, but well kept. The room was a bit small but very clean. There were two doors, one that opened to the parking lot and the other to the hallway. Some may not like... More

Thank you so much for your feedback regarding my hotel. We appreciate our guests telling us how we are doing and how we can improve. You are correct that our hotel is one of the original Courtyards and that it has been very well cared for with a renovation as recently as 2012. My staff and I appreciate the opportunity... More

This is a nice clean hotel in the heart of Athens. We walked to campus: this place is about a mile from the stadium. Very convenient to restaurants and bars, we didn't need our car. Staff very informative and friendly. They have a beautiful deck and pool area, almost resort quality, if you go when it's warm. Pretty much your... More

Arrived in the evening and was told that my room had a door directly to the parking lot. Was given the room # but no specific directions which meant I pulled up at 3 different doors as the room numbers were hard to read. The best thing about the room was the shower which was easy to use and had... More

The roomwas nice, the staff was friendly, helpful and informed. The location to the stadium, downtown where resturants and fun bars is a major plus to this hotel. The cafe provides a good selection of breakfast foods. The room was not big but okay because of the limited amount of time spent there.

We stayed a week at the Courtyard by Marriott in Athens Georgia in November 2014. First thing I noticed was the very nice lobby and dining room. Next we entered our king sized room. It was so clean and very nicely furnished. The rooms were sectioned off so my husband who was there on business could work and I could... More

Stayed at the Athens Courtyard Marriott while in town to see the Bulldogs game. I agree with Julie O's review: it is clearly recently renovated. Very much enjoyed the spacious lobby/restaurant/sitting area to have breakfast and have everybody gather (8 of us) for the walk to Sanford stadium for the game.

Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. However, I think you meant to review the Athens, Greece property not the one in Athens Georgia as we do not have a steam room or sauna on property.

This Courtyard isn't your typical Courtyard - it appears to be a converted Days Inn, However, it is completely updated/renovated and is in a great location. If it wasn't so cold the weekend we were there we would have been able to walk to the downtown shopping/bars - its only two or three blocks. You may have to enter off... More

The staff here are very nice and helpful. The rooms are a good size, the amenities are good, coffee, frige, microwave. The beds are comfortable. It's in a great location, right down town and near everything. It's walking distance to restaurants and shops. The only negative was the air conditioner. It was very loud and constant.
