The property was clean and staff friendly. There were some maintenance issues with the heat and door leading to outside. The bed was comfortable but I would have liked no contact with the bed cover unfortunately it was necessary.

I was in Athens for a big event so I ended up paying twice what they usually charge for this room. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable which means a lot to me. The biggest issue was the water pressure in the morning was low and the water ran cold so I guess many people were taking... More

Upon entering our room, smell of burnt lint (from heating system) greeted us. The sheets are stinky. The toilet is not working, tried to flush it and it would overflow! Nasty! Nasty! Nasty! Told the front desk, we were told they will fix it - did not happen! Towels are off white and needed to be retired. There are no... More

It was great! The room was clean and neat. The hotel has upgraded many things, including the furniture. They had a good breakfast and were open for many hours. Staff were friendly and helpful! They had by far the best room rate in town. Worth the money!

I was forced to stay here; my daughter's middle school band trip to Athens. I would have never selected this hotel. The first impression one has is the thick deodorant smell used in the hallways; I don't want to think about what it is covering up. The rooms are very old fashion hotel, small in all dimensions, but are pretty... More
