The location, lobby, and courtyard are very nice. However, the rooms are definitely showing their age. The carpets are stained, the beds are not very comfortable and the heating system is definitely very touchy. It is time they invested some money back into the rooms and maintenance of the property.

I booked this room from a link on the UGA website after booking a college tour for my son and me. The front desk staff (all students as far as we could tell) were all very courteous and helpful. I have to admit that I had expected the rooms to be a bit nicer, but the location was nice making... More

Tiny room, tinier bath, lumpy bed, thin walls, wifi worked about 25% of the time. A/C blew hot and cold and was so noisy we just turned it off to sleep. Felt like I was staying in a Soviet hotel. I will say the staff was friendly.

Went here for a conference, ended up checking out a day early because the room was so terrible. The lobby is deceptively well renovated while the rooms themselves look like prison cells. The dorms at this school are nicer than this hotel was. The carpet was dingy, the walls were peeling, it was ridiculously small, the bathroom was equally outdated... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the UGA Hotel for a meeting in July 2016. It is right in the middle of the UGA campus so perfect for those attending UGA sporting events, families visiting their UGA students, or those with business on campus. Parking is conveniently located next to the hotel is a well lite, parking garage. From... More

We were looking for a hotel for UGA's Parent's weekend and most hotels were booked for the weekend. Checked into the UGA Hotel & Conference center and got a room for Saturday night. We were able to get a parking pass at 9am before we checked in which worked out perfectly for the game that day.

Basic hotel and facilities, located in close proximity of UGA. Rooms are practical with very efficient front desk staff. Easy to travel from Atlanta Airport to the hotel using a shuttle service with a drop-off at the hotel. Make sure that you select a room on the quiet side of the hotel (unequal room number), if you do not want... More

This hotel is right on the UGA campus and the perfect place for a conference. It's an all inclusive option. The service is impeccable. I always love staying there. During the heat of the summer some rooms do have AC issues but they provide a fan so that's helpful.
