Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was of the high quality that I've come to expect from Hilton properties. The location was perfect to walk dinner and have a drink without the worry of finding parking at the restaurant and driving back to the hotel. The gem that I found was the hotel's own restaurant. I had one of the best meals that I've...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed September 19, 2016

We were in town for just a single night. We very much enjoyed the hotel location, close to all the downtown restaurants and other night spots. We had a "king" room and found it comfortably large. There was a small work desk, an easy chair, microwave/frig/coffee pot, and decent size closet. The hotel staff was very helpful. A young man...

After driving from AL, we stopped in Athens to check out UGA. Our Hertz rental car broke down - We were on way to Clemson and had tour in am. Although Hertz totally abandoned us, (thats another review altogether) - we were stuck with lots of luggage and no place to stay. When we realized, (after many hours) another car...

We took my son down for an official visit to the University of Georgia. Hotel is a block from ca,pus so you can walk everywhere. Hotel is in the heart of downtown Athens so you can get anywhere in the city within 15 minutes. Great stafdf, easy parking and the room was perfect.

Stayed here with my wife and teenage son the night before a scheduled tour of UGA. You can't do better than this location to enjoy everything that downtown Athens has to offer, and you're super-close to campus. Nice, clean hotel with a very friendly front desk staff. Convenient parking in a covered garage right behind the hotel. Quiet rooms. I'd...

I would like to make sure Ms. Bennett is made aware of how much I appreciated her help and hospitality while we were there. She could have easily made me wait until check in time. But instead, she understood the urgency in my need it was so greatly appreciated.

Overall very pleased. The handicap accommodations were excellent and the area around the hotel was very accessible. Since I was working The Classic Center during my stay and my husband is handicapped, I requested a late check out (no later than 2:00pm). Everywhere else we have stayed has granted a late check out upon request.

I initially started using Hilton because of their partnership with American Express. The Garden Inn in Athens maintains the same consistent level of comfort and service that I have received at other Hilton Hotels.

Good location but fairly expensive - $10 to park in their limited parking spaces. Extremely slow internet. Rooms need updating. Uncomfortable bed. Air conditioning needs updating too. Complimentary water.
