Went on a weekend to get engaged, desk staff were very friendly, took pics of me and my fiancé. Great location, right in the middle of town and near all the bars and restaurants. And 2 blocks From UGA. reasonably priced for location

This is a wonderful hotel in a great location in downtown Athens! The lobby and restaurant were always clean and organized, and the breakfast experience was amazing - especially compared to other places we have stayed. The food was great and the team members in the restaurant and at the front desk were friendly and welcoming. Our room was spacious... More

We came to Athens for a girls weekend and upon check in the room was warm, but the bathroom was hot. The air vent put out no air in the bathroom and it was very warm. Upon our return, the room was stiffeling hot and it was set on 65 degrees. Upon calling the front desk they offered a box... More

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.
