This hotel is very convenient to the UGA campus (literally across the street). No other hotel is this close but both Hilton Garden Inn and Hotel Indigo are certainly nicer properties. Safe and secure property due to the fence all around creating only 2 ways in and out of the hotel. I have only stayed during UGA home games (upwards... More

My daughter and I stayed here in September of 2014. We chose this hotel based on reviews, location and price. We were here just one night and were looking for something close to campus because we were visiting the pharmacy school. When we checked in, we were upgraded to a better room due to the fact that my husband is... More

The staff at this hotel was friendly and professional. The rooms are updated and clean. The location is convenient to UGA and the downtown area. Easy check in. Reasonable price with AAA rate. This is where I would stay if visiting Athens!

The hotel is centrally located very well to UGA. It's less than a mile from Sanford Stadium, but is literally right next to the campus of the University of Georgia. The room was nice and clean. We stayed in the older section of the hotel. They have a pool. Some hotels down there don't. You are walking distance from many... More

The hotel was good. Was there during a conference at the UGA, very good city center location, didn't need a car during my stay there. Room spacious, everything ok, nice view. Nice and helpful staff. Bar closes a bit early, otherwise no complaints. Good breakfast.

Stayed in town for a wedding that was about 20 minutes out of town. Several options were in Athens, but this one had better reviews and at a better location, at a reasonable price. I requested upper level, away from elevator. I was given a corner king unit (# 491) and it was perfect! Had a view of the pool,... More

We stayed here for a friend's birthday. The hotel is under renovation, but we did not hear any disturbing noise during our one night here. It is walking distance from downtown, which was very convenient, as we could walk there after the evening had ended. The front desk personnel was very kind, and assisted us in whatever way they could.... More

Location is key in Athens, because some "Athens" hotels are many miles away. Holiday Inn is well located - was clean, pleasant, and unremarkable - like a good holiday inn located in most other small cities i would stay there again.

My daughter and I stayed here in conjunction with a UGA tour. Although the property was under reservation, we had a wonderful corner room which was spacious and overlooking the city (thanks to a free upgrade due to being a priority club member). Convenient location, nice exercise room, nice pool.

We booked this hotel through Priceline's quote your own price deal. Overall, the hotel was okay but in some aspects a disappointment. The hotel is under renovation so the lobby entry is not readily evident. We stayed for one night, the room was clean but had a tiny bathroom. We were locked out of our room because our electronic keys... More
