“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We stay here frequently when visiting our kids who are students at UGA. Very reasonably priced and a great location.If you are a parent of a UGA student, ask about their parents club. You get one night free after staying several nights (5 nights, I believe).

We have stayed here several times on our trips to visit our daughter, who is a student at UGA. The location can't be beat. The rooms themselves would be perfect for one or two, but adding a third person makes it very crowded. The bathrooms are extremely small. But the best part is the front desk staff. They are UGA students and they are fantastic. We checked out with the help of Ellie Hamilton and she went out of her way to assist us. She even gave us pointers to pass along to our daughter. We will definitely stay here again.

What a perfect place to stay if you are doing anything at UGA, especially sports events. Quiet, beautiful grounds, relaxing. Excellent service. Very reasonably priced. Nice courtyard bar to sit under the trees and enjoy a cocktail. Good hot breakfast. Easy walking distance to Sanford Stadium, Foley Field, Stegman Colesium, the tennis and track and field facilities and more. Take your coffee from breakfast and stroll the grounds, sit on a bench amidst giant oaks and watch the birds. Really lovely setting. Also within easy walking distance to Five Points for restaurants and shopping. Older hotel that has been updated and refurbished. Only negative is that the rooms are small, as is usually the case in an older hotel. Definitely worth it. The only place we'll stay in Athens in the future.

I was just at the Georgia Center for a conference. All the people there were extremely helpful and hospitable. In particular, I wanted to mention that one of the concierge desk staff named Savannah was incredibly helpful--she was an extremely warm and friendly young woman. She answered all of my silly questions about service in the hotel, helped unload our vehicle, drove us all over campus with their free shuttle, and told us lots about the campus and surrounding Athens community. The free shuttle service alone made it very easy to navigate the large campus. The price of meals in the cafe and lounge were very attractive. The room was very spacious and well equipped. It's a great place to stay.

The Georgia Center really has it all -- wonderful facilities, great food, and friendly staff. Its location is perfect -- not only are you on the UGA campus but it is walking distance from downtown and 5-points. My particularly like the atmosphere in the bar -- sitting out in the cool courtyard with the lights on the trees, drinking a Red and Black martini....

I am not sure if we will ever be back in Athens, but if we are, THIS is where we will stay. I was shocked to read any negative reviews!!! Everything was fabulous for us, from our check-in to the parking garage. Our room was WONDERFUL....spacious, clean, and the bed was the best one I slept in during our 5 city trip. The ONLY one where I didn't wake up with a back ache!!! The only possible negative was that it was not exactly within walking distance of anything we were attending on campus, but I am not sure any other hotel is either. This place is fabulous!!!

Small rooms; more on par with an en suite in UK. Well appointed, clean. Small tub. Secure premises, Helpful, friendly front desk staff and conscierge. Good on-site restaurant, with conscientious, friendly, helpful staff.
I came in late on the first night, ate in the restaurant while catching up on work. Waiter, thoughtfully, sent me to my room with a carafe of fresh coffee and small pitcher of real cream at the conclusion of my meal. He set the tone of my visit. Exceptional service is the norm here.
