I decided to try Scottish Inn although I normally use Motel 6. Not a good idea. Building looked like a run down Motel 6. The room needed painting (properly). Although reasonably clean, the AC/heating system was ancient. Although an AARP member, the attendant refused to give me the normal 10% discount. I will not stop here again.

Stayed on my way to Florida at this Scottish Inns and it was a nice and clean place to stay. Was very surprised at the great quality for the low rates. I recommend this motel for anyone looking for a clean place to spend the night.

Staff courteous, room very much on the down slope. We stopped there because it presented fairly well from the road. We were allowed to peek into the room, and at first glance it looked ok. After taking the room, we discovered the A/C was very noisy, the sink laminate top was holed and peeling, and the list goes on. All... More

Outside. Clean looking Inside rooms another story. Old 70's furniture, indoor/ outdoor type carpet. Sink in room not bathroom. Saw at least two bugs in room. Blanket on bed had cigarette burn in it. Very poor room. One of the worst places I've ever stay. LOOK ELSE WHERE!

I stayed the Athens Scottish Inns when I was headed to Ohio with my family. By the time, we arrived at Scottish Inns, I was exhausted and ready to sleep. The desk clerk was extremely friendly. The room was nice and warm on a cold December day. The bed was so comfortable! I had a great nights sleep!! I recommend... More

The room rental was inexpensive but rather dumpy, however it was clean. The continental breakfast consisted of a few store bought danish and awful coffee.
