Athens is a nice Texas town but how could it be so popular that a place like this gets $90 a night. Clean but older with no character. Standard travel lodge. Toilet leaked. Requested repair but to no avail; probably u fixable due to rust. It has a smoking building so be sure that request non-smoking. Of course, non-smoking cost... More

My husband and I stayed here due to our RV being in the shop. We have been here almost a week and have been treated wonderful from the staff. The rooms are clean and smell fresh. Beds are very comfortable. I feel very safe staying here during the day while my husband is at work. I would highly recommend this... More

Front desk people were very nice. First night one bed had dirt on sheets.. Asked for sheets to be changed on one bed the third morning.. pulled one corner back and placed the card on the bed. Sheets weren't changed, we hand to change them again ourselves. Rooms are clean. I feel they need to up their breakfast.

I stayed here while on business. I must first say "It's a Super8". I'm not upset about anything. Matter of fact the room was very dated but surprisingly clean and we'll kept. Free internet was a plus. However the front office staff there was rather lacking. Non responsive, withdrawn and slightly rude. I spoke with the owner and he doesn't... More
