My son and I were going to UGA for a college visit. We booked this hotel for the price. When we arrived we were very surprised by the retro mid century feel to it. The room was decked out like it was the 50's. The room keys looked like UGA ID cards. I would highly recommend staying.

Great location and very friendly staff. Enjoyed the 1950's retro decor! Limited food options for breakfast at coffee bar. Pet friendly. Easy parking. Great value. We are planning a return visit to Athens and would stay here again.

Love the renovation. Rooms are super-nice, beds more comfortable than my bed at home (by a long shot), and the little things are awesome. Loved the artisan soaps/shampoos in the shower/bathroom. Great staff. Awesome location. Well done!

We were in town for a concert at the Foundry which is on site here at the Graduate. Really enjoyed the property. Pool, coffee shop, restaurant, and an intimate music venue all in one. The large room was vintage---love love love! The walk in shower was quite large as well. The staff was very welcoming at the property and the... More

The Graduate is conveniently located by downtown Athens and is also very close to the highway loop so getting in and out of Athens was easy. The decor and vibe is very retro hipster so bring your Apple products, have a latte or craft beer while you discuss saving the planet or designing using reclaimed wood. The rooms were very... More

Lately I have been consistently choosing to stay at The Graduate in Athens because of its location, reasonable cost, and quiet rooms. I travel to Athens guite frequently for business and it is nice to have a hotel that is reliable. The rooms are always clean although some of the ground floor units can smell damp or slightly mildew-y. Still,... More

I'm still new to being able to navigate Athens, but staying at the Graduate helped me learn more about the city. I loved the college theme used throughout the room; it made me want to go back to college! I will definitely stay here again.

This property is always clean, quiet and well managed. It is always our first choice when we come to visit our daughter at UGA. The fact that we can bring our family pet along is always a bonus. The location on the corner of downtown is great. You can easily walk to restaurants and shopping and campus.

My wife and I arrived at 10:30 a.m. and requested parking permission until 3 p.m. check-in. We were allowed to access our room immediately to unpack and relax before starting our exploration of Athens. The bathroom layout, while small like most, was very functional. Shelves above and below the vanity provided plenty of storage. You could operate the shower without... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Graduate Athens - where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. We are located a short walk from the UGA campus and downtown Athens. Whether you're dropping in for a show at the Foundry, our multi-tiered music venue, or in town showing off the Alma Mater, our warm, friendly whip smart staff will be your compass guide - so you can feel like a local, even if it's your first time in town. Get ready for a night like you've never had before. Get ready to be inspired. Here at Graduate Athens, we believe life is a timeless journey filled with memory making stops, extraordinary rites of passage and all of the courageous leaps of faith that get us where we're going. Just beyond the historic brick facade lies our very own Southern village. While Graduate tips a hand to its historic roots, it has fully embraced the southern Renaissance in all of its artistic edge and glory. Everything you need is right here-whether you're in town to wind up or unwind. Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner including Malin & Goetz amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel lobby is caffeinated with just the right blend of grab and go goodness. Think home baked eats and a selection of the best brews. We've got just the right shot of espresso to pair with your morning news at Iron Works Coffee. The Foundry, our historic music venue served as the original iron foundry, and was reimagined to honor the site's roots and preserve this piece of Athens' fine past. The multi-tiered structure and soaring beams welcome crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate the detail and dedication to craft. The Foundry Bar & Grill stocks every local beer imaginable and offers fun fresh fare whether you are catching a new artist or you're just looking for a place in town to hang out and make some history of your own. At Graduate we are all about the R&R and making your acquaintance. Melt away your stress, unplug from the world and indulge in a few hours of off the grid me time. Let us know which spa service serves you best, and we can make it happen. ... more   less
