Last minute plans...only room available in town. Not clean, room door didn't shut all the way. Staff was nice and friendly, but they need to actually clean the bathrooms and beds. Random office chair in bathroom had crumbs in the seat and mild in the shower. Spend your money elsewhere

I booked the motel through priceline. The price of the reservation was charged to my card immediately. After reading the dreadful reviews this place gets I cancelled the room, with several days to spare before any cancellation penalty would apply. 3 weeks passed and my card was not credited. I had to call priceline (actually booking.com) to seek help. I've... More

Awful experience! I have been to Athens, GA many times for South Carolina football games and this was by far the worst hotel I have ever experienced - and that's after staying in the old Classic Inn a time or two. Purely disgusting! When we arrived our "non-smoking" room in 202 had the door wide open to fumigate the premise.... More

We were coming into town for G-Day and weren't sure if our friends would be available for an overnight stay. This ended up being the only hotel available. We should have just slept in the car. 2 of the 4 lights worked in our room. We tested the smoke detectors and neither worked. There were holes in the walls, doors... More

This might be the cheapest room in Athens but it's that way for a reason and not worth the money either. The walls in the rooms are incredibly thin - we heard every conversation outside and in the room next door and every car and truck that drove by on the Atlanta highway all night long. The towels have been... More

This motel is full of unfriendly people. The management thinks they can say anything about anyone. When we left we cleaned up and made up the beds and they said we took the pillows and comforters. The management at this motel will lie about anything. And call the police for no reason at all. In the office there is a... More
