Of course, once I started giving the hotel push back on the charge they were very quick to reverse course and say the room did in fact smell...

This was exactly what we needed! Although the layout of the building made it a little confusing to find the room, the 24-hour coffee/tea in the lobby was awesome and the complimentary breakfast was perfect for getting our day started. My boyfriend and I visited Athens for an event at the Classic Center, and this hotel was only located 0.5-miles...

Stayed for the Ga - Ga Tech game. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Bathrooms were clean, but a little small. Updated in last few years. Close walk to downtown and University. Elevators were slow though and luggage carts were hard to come by, but will stay there again.
