“Good place to stay in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I have stayed in the UGA hotel for a conference and I do not have any complains about it. Very comfortable and clean room, also free WIFI available and all the TV channels that you can imagine. In my case was a good choice since the conference was in the same place, however as it was the holyday term not many students were around. 20-25 minutes walk to the downtown crossing the university area. I will definitely book the same hotel if I have to go again to Athens.

Last week end, 6/14-16/2013 was a wonderful week end. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. Everyone seemed to be glad to be working there, which made us feel we were glad to be there. The shuttle drivers were helpful, especially since I have some physical issues with getting in and out of the van. They were also helpful with suggestions to eat and were to locate some UGA book stores. The breakfasts were also good. Parking easy. Over all, a fun week end for a family event.

I stayed for 3 nights while visiting my son at UGA. Alicia at the front desk was so friendly and helpful at check in. All the staff was wonderful and the room was clean and well maintained. There was a rather noisy wedding party in my wing the last night of my stay and noise does transfer through the doors, but there is nothing that the hotel can really do to prevent that. If you are coming to visit a student or to a sporting event this location can not be beat.

I booked online and in a hurry and did not read the fine print on the "Classic Queen" room, assuming that "classic" meant two queen beds, as that would indeed be the classic set-up. The Classic Queen is one queen, however, and a tiny little room. The front desk was able to move us to a room with two queen beds, however, which I appreciated very much.

We were there when classes at UGa were out, and they roll up the streets when the sun goes down: there was nowhere in or very close to the hotel to get dinner after 9 or breakfast before 7. The rooms do not include menus or restaurant hours, or a list of nearby restaurants, so we relied on the valet to direct us to a restaurant for dinner, and we knew somewhere (The Grill--yummy) to eat breakfast. Still, a 7 am opening seemed late for a hotel.

The location was convenient for an event on the campus, the room was clean, and the front desk attendants were friendly. I would stay there again, but I will remember next time to double-check my room time.

I attended a conference at UGA in May and was very impressed with the conference center. The rooms were simple, but clean and comfortable. The conference facilities were superb for a group of our size (120 people) and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Every aspect of the conference was handled professionally and without intrusion. Refreshments for breaks were always on time and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this location for any conference of small to moderate size.

Checking in was made a pleasure by it's speed and the incredibly open friendliness of the staff. I went beyond courtesy. They really make you feel like you're visiting friends. The location abuts the University of Georgia Campus, so if your business is there, it's excellent. The Athens/University Transit system has a stop immediately out front. If your business in in town, it is a straight shot of about 2.5 miles into the town center. The accomadations were entirely pleasant and adequate for all needs. Overall, an excellent place to stay when needing to be in or near Athens, GA.
