Just don't. That's all. Only redeeming quality was convenience. I was extremely grateful that we were traveling with our large dog and made sure he slept right in front of the door. Find any place else.

This place is repulsive. When we checked in (a football weekend at the last minute), we walked into the room and immediately walked out. It looked like a place where money changes hands. No national hotel would allow it and it frankly should be condemned or left to tenents with mercenary purposes. The worst I have ever seen

This place is not fit for anybody!!! No batteries in smoke alarms. Electric wires to lamp wrapped in black tape. Sheets were not changed for sometime. Front desk was very rude and told us they were going to kick us out if we didn't stop complaining. We left on our own and lost $$$ on 2 rooms. Started back to... More

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
