Like some other recent reviewers have mentioned, this hotel must have undergone some renovations in recent years, because I was very happy with our stay. They are also in the process of further renovations to update to the latest Courtyard lobby layout. The hotel was clean and everything seemed very new, especially compared to the scary-looking Days Inn right across the street. All of the staff was very friendly, and the check-in clerk gave us plenty of information on how to get around Athens, where to eat, entertainment choices, etc. It is easy walking distance to the campus and to plenty of great choices for meals and nightlife. It is a reasonably steep uphill climb to get to either - no big deal if you are reasonably fit, but could be a challenge if you have physical limitations or small kids to carry or push around. Rooms and bathrooms are standard good Courtyard quality, and it is an unusual layout for a Courtyard since they actually have a courtyard, where the pool is located. It is smallish but we had a pleasant time swimming and enjoying the day after working up a sweat walking around campus. Breakfast is complimentary continental. It's nothing that will blow your mind, and it would be nice if they had more protein choices other than just yogurt. But it did include fresh fruit, which was nice, and not every Courtyard includes breakfast in the hotel price - so I can't complain. This was one stay in the middle of a week-long vacation so we were happy to have an on-site laundry facility to use - $1/load wash/dry but they give you free detergent and dryer sheets. Would definitely stay here again.
