Visited in late June 2014. Staff was friendly. Facilities not so good. There were ants in the bathroom. a couple in the shower the first day. 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

I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences you had to encounter during your stay at our hotel.We have a professional third party company attending to the pest control in the hotel. I have communicated with them to investigate how this could happen as all the neighboring rooms did not have the same issue. We also have choice of continental breakfast -varieties... 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

I have stayed in a few knights inns and they have never been much to write about. This one is by far the best. The excellent rating does take into account what this inn is. It is not the Ritz or a new motel with the latest stuff but it was definitely a great surprise for what it is. Everything... More

The plaque in the lobby states proudly that Kennedy was at the then-Motel Athens in 1959; and I think one couldn't be blamed for thinking that nothing's changed since then. Indeed, the owners told me that certain things - like upgrading the wiring - couldn't be done because the property's simply too old. If you're used to modern, consistent, look-and-feel... More

We just needed a roof over our heads for a night and the Knight's Inn fit that description. There is nothing special about it. The front desk clerk was efficient, but not really friendly. Our room had a bare plaster patch on the wall and cheap looking laminate flooring that gave the room a cheap feel. Our room was fairly... More
