Getting older, my travel days are shortening (just not the endurance anymore). Given what I do when I travel (I hike, walk, visit museums, go to national parks and state parks and do a lot of avoiding cities) This was a good stopping point for me in both directions of the trip. Convenient to the exit from I65, convenient to... More

This hotel was what we were expecting for a stop over at the half way point of our trip...nothing fancy, but clean and located near good restaurants. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was good. If we ever go through Athens, AL again and need a place to stay, we would certainly stay here.

We were traveling with friends to Florida and pulled in here to spend the night. The price was very reasonable, clean and a very nice complimentary breakfast. Alisha was at the desk when we checked in. Very helpful. Would stay here again.

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.

I apologize about the Housekeeper entering the room . He has been reprimanded for this and informed to knock before entering any room. I apologize that we didn't meet you expectations on breakfast and our trailer parking. In November we will be renovating the breakfast and lobby areas and adding new items to the bar to allow our guest more... More

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.
