Thank you for staying with us. I understand how frustrating it is to not locate items after traveling. We found multiple clothing items left in your room after checkout and returned all items found. If you have any further concerns please contact the hotel directly and we will speak with you directly.

Staff was polite and courteous. Location was great, walking distance to shops, campus, bars, restaurants. Parking garage was easy to get in and out of and easily able to accommodate my vehicle. The staff in the lounge was amongst the best hotel bartender i have experienced in my travels. No complaints at all about this experience.

Spent the night here after a UGA game. Good food in the afternoon, bartender was very attentive and made delicious drinks. Comfortable seating in bar area with a couple of TVs to watch the other games. Room was clean, if a little warm. Cut the A/C down as far as it would go but it never really got cold in...

Clean hotel, friendly staff, quiet room, and conveniently located for anything on the UGA campus. We stayed here for a Georgia vs Georgia Tech game (Go Jackets!) due to close proximity to the stadium and were glad we did.

Prime location. Needs some major updating in the rooms, especially for the price during football season. Loved the bar tender. Food menu could use more of options for appetizer/bar foods. Great location. Close to all the downtown Athens bars and resturants.

We were in town for a georgia home game and decided to stay at the hilton garden inn. We were very pleased with our choice. It was great being down town and being able to walk places for breakfast and dinner. It was also close to the stadium so we didn't have far to walk. We also decided to tailgate...

The hotel was very nice and the location was excellent. The breakfast selection was good and the bar stayed open late so we could enjoy the late football games on the television. Valet would be nice to have available.

The service was superb prior to arriving, during the duration and the check out out process. The breakfast was excellent and more that enough food shared. One of the workers conversed with me on the profession I was able to share information as well as him. I love the name badges that share the activities
