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.

Everything from check in to check out was perfect. The rooms were spacious and clean, the hotel staff was friendly and professional and the pool was fabulous. The Bistro restaurant was great and Starbucks every morning couldn't have been better. I will definitely stay again!

This was a good location to spend the night in Athens. It was a quiet location that was a block off one of the main roads through town. We were in walking distance of good food and of the University of Georgia. Rooms were spacious and clean. Good staff as well.

Stayed here for two nights on business. The hotel could use some updating - especially the rooms. That being said, everything was very clean. The room I was in was so quiet!! I didn't hear anyone the entire time I was there. Staff was very friendly and location was close enough for me to walk to the campus area/restaurants and... More

The staff were typically Marriott friendly,... More
