We were in town for a UGA college tour and this was recommended by a former graduate. Although not in the heart of downtown Athens (but extremely close), a coffee shop, breakfast, lunch, dinner, wifi, and live show were all available. Uber was very fast and inexpensive ($6) if you don't want to walk or drive to restaurants or bars at night. The rooms were fun (retro) and staff was great. The environment very charming and collegiate.
