Under Construction, but still Super Nice! I stayed in Room 126 on Saturday this weekend and couldn't have asked for a nicer stay. Both the Office Staff and House Keeping were very friendly and the room itself was immaculate. Soaking in Hot Water was fantastic after a long day of shopping downtown, and the bed was super comfortable. Thanks for... More

We spent a night in Room 105 of this hotel, which is more “motel” style as access to all rooms is from the outside. The room was small and clean but we found it to be a bit gloomy, even with every lamp lit. The king size bed was comfortable enough and the room contained a couch, coffee table, microwave... More

First time using trip advisor, we were so happy we tried Best Western !! The staff took care of our needs as we traveled to Florida from southern Indiana. Pleasant surprise the rooms were remodeled, great morning breakfast, and clean thanks to trip advisor we found Best Western Inns great value for the price

The cleanliness and location of the hotel were great for our needs. Price was also good for a week night. Older, refurbished room which was well supplied with all amenities needed. Recommend...not a large room but adequate and again, very clean and well air conditioned.

Nice to have a clean room, strong shower, finely decorated, plenty of towels and hot or cold breakfast in the a.m. with lots of variety of foods. Construction going on so little confusing with two entrances.

Overall, Good value for the money, would have liked to have had more and better choices for the breakfast. Sometimes you had to wait a few minutes for coffee. Rooms were quiet and clean and parking was very good..

Great price for the hotel being so close to downtown and UGA. When we checked in the first room's bathroom had a urine smell to it.

I have stayed at Best Western Hotel before in another city and this one was very disappointing.
