I have reserved a room using Hotels.com, but when I checked in, the lady said they don't acknowledge the this reservation so I had to pay it again. She also told me that Hotels.com will not charge me. However, on the second day, when I checked my credit card, I did charge twice. When I got back to the hotel,... More

This is off the scale bad. Arrived for very late check-in. Good thing it was dark and I was tired cuz I would have otherwise slept in the car. Was traveling with fiancé and her daughter. They slept in their clothes atop the covers. Need I say more ?

Simple motel. Great water pressure, comfy beds, big, cushy pillows. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast bar includes muffins, fruit, coffee, and cereals. Room comes with small refrigerator and microwave, flat screen TV with HBO, Showtime, and wifi. Covers all the basics, and is walking distance to the Varsity, Saucehouse, and short distance to downtown Athens. Many rooms have 2 and... More

We came last minute for new years eve. The only good side is it is close to downtown athens. Other than that it is complete garbage. We came back st night to find multiple cockroaches on our bathroom counter. The dresser drawer is broken off. Bed sheets don't look clean. Everything looks trashy.

Despicable. My sister and I stayed in the first room on ground level closest to the reception lobby. There are intense cobwebs in every corner and hanging down throughout the room, so large there is no way a maid could overlook their presence (see photo included). Everything (furniture, knobs, hair dryer, carpet) has a slippery coating, so much so that... More

I'm not even sure where to start. I booked it almost at the last minute, and I would have rather drove home after the convention I attended at UGA. The whole room smelled of smoke, AND THERE WAS AN ASHTRAY in the room, even though it was billed as a Non Smoking room. The bathroom was very dirty, the toilet... More

Word cannot describe how bad this was. Just don't. Bugs on bed, candy wrapper on floor, toilet only flushes occasionally. Lamp not working in bathroom. Really. It's not a Travelodge anymore, but a Travel Inn. Just don't.

The worst hotel I have ever seen. We walked in the room and walked out. Bad people in parking lot, stains in room, no locks on door, and the rudest people who work there, what's not to like? Never stay here. We ate the 70 dollars for the room and stayed elsewhere.

Please stay as far away from this place as you can. Our room was so, so dirty. We stayed here after a UGA game because all other hotels were booked & if it weren't for the fact that we were with a couple who had booked the room for us, I would have slept in the car instead but in... More

The good: The woman at the front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming. Also, this hotel is an affordable option for staying the weekend in Athens for UGA football games. It is walking distance to downtown Athens and Sanford Stadium. I also felt pretty safe staying there on a gameday weekend. Before booking this hotel, we read the reviews and... More
