This was a very nice hotel located in downtown Athens. The UGA campus is close by so there is a young and hip vibe happening around you. The rooms are very quiet, clean and cold. It was 90+ degrees on the day I checked in. Parking is next door and at least two levels and accessed by your room key.

A great place to stay in Athens. Nothing special to the actual hotel, but the location is perfect. This our third time staying at this location. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are clean and functional.

Overall, it was OK. The room was mostly clean and comfortable and the bed was actually pretty comfortable. I really appreciated having a range of pillow types available in the room. The down side was that the carpeting by AC unit in my room was wet, the ice machine on my floor was not working, and the fire alarm sounded... More

If you are visiting UGA, the location is ideal. For other visits, the hotel is nothing special. Staff is friendly but doesn't seem great at problem solving. Cleaning staff for rooms are SLOW. At least there was free coffee in the mornings.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel this time. The last time I stayed here,I was very unhappy. This time the staff made sure I was comfortable and moved me when I had a problem with my room. The bed was comfortable and I didn't have the air condition unit humming in my ears as I tried to sleep.

The furniture in the rooms is a little outdated but everything else makes up for it. Bathrooms are really nice, friendly staff, and nice breakfast/bar area. The hotel location is also a huge plus as it is close to everything downtown. Overall a pleasant stay for the price.

I was here for a wedding. After driving for 6 hours, the check in was easy and I was able to settle into the pleasant room and the AC was already on full blast - which is a good thing in July, in Georgia! Would stay here again.

Friendly staff, walking distance to lots of different dining options. No pool but we weren't there that long. College town so stay clear of many of the bars that are plentiful. But for hole in the wall eatery try Eddie's calizone.
