The outside of the property had a run down feel. The lobby, rooms and halls all were in the process of having new carpet installed. The room was freshly painted. However, it was the smallest bathroom I have ever used in a hotel. Location was very convenient.

I just stayed here for three nights. The hotel location is very good, right on Broad St. It has excellent, comfortable rooms with very good beds. The personnel is very attentive and accommodating. The rate includes a full hot breakfast served until 9:30 AM.

We stayed two nights while house hunting in the Athens area. The room was clean. Housekeeping could have been more timely in making up the room for the second night. (We had to ask for towels when returning to the room after 4 pm.) Complimentary breakfast was pretty good both mornings in a larger than normal common area. Desk personnel... More

We stayed here on a business trip. The staff was friendly and checked us in nicely. My hotel room had just had new carpet, paint, and furniture which was nice but the hotel is old and needs some more remodeling. However it is clean and cozy. My ac worked we'll and kept room cold which is how I like it.

The best thing about this hotel was the two young ladies working the desk. Busy, but friendly. We were lucky to have a room on the newly renovated floor, with new paint and carpet and a wonderful view of the tree tops. Bathroom was smaller than some, but clean. We had a quiet nights sleep

We stayed here for a veteran's event from Friday to Sunday. The staff was pleasant and helpful. This is a pet friendly hotel, and our dog was welcome with no hassles. Our room was fine. Large enough for our pet and luggage; no side-stepping around the room. The breakfast was sufficient They had lighter food for a quick bite, and... More

It was fine overall. We wished we spent a little more and stayed at a nicer hotel around the corner but this wasn't bad. Bathrooms were smaller than many Manhattan hotel rooms I've stayed at. A strong smell of disinfectant throughout the hallways and in the room. But no gross out experiences and the breakfast looked better than what you... More
