The Country Inn & Suites in Athens was a great place to stay! It was less than a mile from campus and the downtown area where there were tons of restaurants and quite a few bars. If you're in the mood for soul food, I suggest giving 5StarDay a try... its a cool little eclectic place that you might miss if you're not looking. The Hotel was very spacious and the rooms were nice and very clean. All the staff were very accomodating and polite to both myself and my boyfriend. I would certainly recommend The Country Inn & Suites to anyone planning to visit Athens and I would definitely stay there again myself!
