Front desk was courteous and very helpful. Quiet location just off the main UGA campus. Very reasonable price tag. I would stay there again for my next trip and look forward to the new hotel they are building.

For several years I have stayed at Best Western when traveling to Athens. In fact, it is a regular stop for me. The staff are very polite, manner-able, and best of all they remember your name when you show back up. The beds/rooms are clean, internet is great, and within good walking distance to the many amenities downtown and even...

This hotel is in the middle of a remodel. There is a new building going up which looks very nice but the old hotel is likely to be torn down. The outside looks horrible and is kinda sketchy looking but the rooms were clean and inexpensive. We needed a pet friendly hotel so decided to give it a try. I...

Nice hotel. Clean rooms good breakfast. In the middle of UGA near the greek houses. Once construction on new wing is done should be even better. The rooms were clean and staff helpful. Couldn't ask for better on a quick stay in Athens. Got the AARP discount which made the low price even better. Great value.

Nothing terrible about this place. The outside is a little scary (kinda dark & surrounded by construction & crews) and the room did have a bit of an odor to it when we first arrived, but once we turned the A/C on it went away. Probably wouldn't have stayed here alone because of the sketchy parking lot; however, the room...

There were sooo many bugs in our room but the staff was really nice and the building is under construction so it may just be because of that. We didn't bother with complaining though because we didn't want to make a big fus over it

Rooms were clean, and comfortable, the construction on expansion made getting to the breakfast a little difficult, I had my 91 year old mother-in-law with us and going up Reese st with a walker in traffic was a accident waiting to happen.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Best Western Athens is conveniently located near the beautiful University of Georgia Campus and is a proud member of Coach Mark Richt's UGA Football Dawg family. The hotel is surrounded by Pre-Civil War Antebellum homes which now serve as boutique shops, as well as UGA sorority and fraternity houses. Conveniently located less than a mile away, you will find the Athens Downtown shopping area which includes musical night life, and award winning restaurants. For passing travelers, the Best Western motel is conveniently located located near 441 North and South, with a staff ready to assist with any traveling questions. Make sure to stop by the world-famous Varsity Restaurant located right across the street! Best Western Athens is pleased to announce that we are now under construction on our new tower that will sit just off of historic Milledge Avenue. With this project, we will become a Best Western Plus upon completion. In the tower, we will be adding 55 guest rooms that will be interior corridor and 100% smoke free. All guests will have access to a hot complimentary breakfast every morning- next to this breakfast area will be meeting space that can host all kinds of events from wedding parties to business meetings. Guests will also have access to a 600 square foot workout facility as well as a spa to relax in during their free time. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi of course, and access to a business center that can be utilized to print documents if necessary. The future looks bright for us here at Best Western Athens! ... more   less
