This was the friendliest Best Western we have ever stayed at. The stay was nice and comfortable. I recommend this hotel for quick, over night stays. When traveling that way, I would stay there again. It was actually friendlier than the more expensive hotel we stayed at on the way home.

Nice place, clean. Great King size room. Wonderful breakfast. Saw something I had never seen before. A pancake machine.. Push OK and 2 pancakes pop out!!!!!! Couldn't believe it. Also had cheese omelet, sausage, biscuits and gravy plus the other "usual" items. Only thing that upset me was I paid over $90 with taxes etc and if I had booked...

Thank you for taking the time for a review on Trip Advisor. A apologize if the rate was cheaper online but in booking on line be sure you have the correct room type. The pricing for rooms online is the single queen first and it is cheaper. But we hope to see you again in the future. Lynn Horn-GM

Check in was uneventful. The room was very clean. Went to Applebee's just across parking lot for dinner,. Breakfast in the morning very early was all you could ask for. They had almost anything you would find in a diner. Eggs,sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, cereal and all kinds of condiments. Would definitely stay there in the future.

We depend every year on this site. We count on the ten percent off on a nearby Applebees, the continental breakfast, and the complimentary USA Today newspaper. The Athens Alabama is located off I-65 which directly leads to all parts of the southeast.

I grew up in Athens and had stayed t Best Western years ago , but I was happy to see that the rooms were updated and very comfortable. I had a King room and it had a nice sitting area. When I was out of the room, the staff left me two new coffee pods every day. At other places...

The room was clean. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful. They fixed the problem with closed captioning on the tv without any fuss. They made sure I was comfortable and had everything I thought was necessary.

Nice clean room. It was an unusually cold night and the heat and hot water were more than adequate. We really appreciated that. New lobby and breakfast looked good but I only grabbed a coffee for the road. Would definitely stay again.

Convenient location to freeway. Be careful that your GPS does not inform you that location is not right at exit. We were shown location was 15 miles away which happened to be in the middle of a river. This is our second time staying at this location and definitely will be making more visits.

Thank you for the wonderful review on Trip Advisor. You are correct in location on a GPS. You have to be sure to put in hwy 72 E so it doesn't carry you the 15 miles out of the way. But we hope to see you again in the future. Thank You Again, Lynn Horn -GM
