3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Maintenance man entered room without knocking while wife was dressing. No electric outlet at work desk. Breakfast was so-so, parking for car w/trailer is not so good about 300 yards from room. Might train the night clerk in expressing friendly personality.

Staff was very pleasant to talk to and helpful is giving directions to vacation sites. They were always willing and available to assist you in your needs. The breakfast area was well-laid out. The rooms were easy to get to and were quiet for sleeping.

We have stayed at this motel before. It was fine. There have been upgrades and it is now wonderful. The price is great and the room was also. The manager we dealt with, Alisha, was marvelous. I totally recommend this establishment

Finding a nice pet friendly hotel can sometimes be a challenge. On a recent trip we traveled through Athens and I was not familiar with the area so checked the internet for dog friendly hotels. Their website said that they had a limited number of pet friendly rooms so I called them to be sure there was one available before... More

Older hotel but they have updated the paint and carpet in the rooms. There was an odd smell in our room, we weren't sure what that was. The bed was comfortable, breakfast was good. We did not like the fact that the rooms are entered from the outside. We like the security of inside entrances. The staff was the worst... More

I stay at this Best Western every year. My family has a family reunion in Decatur Alabama every year. This Best Western is the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed at. And while the faces may change yearly at check-in/check-out, the service is always outstanding. They employ the correct persons for this job.

We were moving from Louisiana and arrived very late in the evening. Not only was the clerk very sweet, but the room was wonderful! Clean, comfortable, and excellent after a long drive. We have stayed at this location before, and we'll continue to use this as our "half way" stopping point.

The staff made the stay and the room was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The breakfast lay out was also well accepted. Hot food, nothing cold and the whole place was very well kept!
