First of all when we checked in the room was filthy. It smelled like piss. Even the bedding reeked. then after walking across the floor a couple times I noticed my feet were black. Apparently they don't clean. The shower head is down so low if your anything over 5'4'' prepare to duck to get your hair wet ..and the... More

We where greeted by a very kind front desk attendent. This is by no means the nicest hotel in Athens. Its exactly what you pay for. I reserved a $50 room & that's what we got Lol. Everywhere was completely booked. It has beds, internet & safe parking. Its close to restaurants & where we needed to be. I'll probably... More

I wasn't thinking too much other than it is a place to stay. I did pick a smoking room (cheapest priced one for a guy who doesn't make much and was on a college road trip) and instantly knew it was when I walked in. I think they could freshen it up. Also the refrigerator and bathroom were very loud... More

The second day when I woke up the bathroom sink was black with ants. The white sink and countertop was totally black with ants. The free breakfast didn't offer much of a selection. Cold... More

While this is not a plush property, it's a good value for the money. The rooms are quoted dated, with wood paneling that looks like it goes back to the Eisenhower years, and equally old fixtures in the bathroom. On the other hand, everything worked, the room was clean and comfortable, and the motel is situated in a convenient location.... More

Then why did they tell us on July 5 that the contractors had gone home for the holiday weekend but they were still in the process of remodeling? (A better question is why did I delete the pictures of mold/mildew on the bathroom ceiling...because I didn't think anybody would give this 5 stars?) The televisions in the back are from... More

The rooms in the newer section, in the rear of the hotel, are typical of any modern hotel. The rooms in front, the original hotel, are pine paneled. These rooms are dated but are very clean. The cost of a room is very reasonable. the staff are friendly and very accommodating. The included breakfast consists of orange juice, breads (bagels,... More

My wife and I had a pleasant stay at the Knights Inn in Athens. It is conveniently located right across the street from one of the best farmers' markets I've ever visited. Our room was clean and quiet. In the morning, a complimentary breakfast was available and was enough to get us to lunch. Out back you can push or... More
