Nice place. I would recommend this for visit. Pretty good breakfast buffet. Staff is friendly. No real problems . Bed was comfortable. May need some updating but would come back when in this area. I'm real picky about where I stay. It's close to restaurants and university.

We had to rent a room during our house renovations, and I found the staff to be exceptionally flexible, kind, and thoughtful. The manger, Taylor, went above and beyond to ensure we had the best stay possible. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

My biggest complaint is that this hotel is located across the street from public housing and is an uphill hike away from the downtown area. I booked this hotel based on reviews from this site and was VERY disappointed in both the hotel and this site! 😠

Great location right next to campus. Our room was in a different tower from the main hotel and it was complicated and not really easy to get there from the lobby with our luggage. Probably should have driven around and gone in a side door, but already had our luggage in the lobby with us and would have had to... More

While this hotel is close to downtown, its further away than others that are more walking friendly. The staff is friendly as others have said, but it can't make up for the faults. This property allows pets so we heard dogs barking at all hours , the owners didn't seem to care. We had a room on the 1st floor... More

This hotel's location can't be beat -- very close to lots of interesting things. The hotel was very quiet and the staff were friendly, which were also nice. However, the facility as a whole felt somewhat run-down and in need of upgrading, which was a bit of a disappointment.

Front desk staff called on the room phone to make sure the room was acceptable. A nice touch. Conveniently located to UGA north campus and downtown Athens. Reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable with a very nice continental breakfast. Will stay there again.

While the staff is certainly friendly, this is not a good place to get any sleep. School was not in session but people were making a lot of noise in the halls at 2 AM and earlier. Even with posted signs(unusual) that no one reads. The AC unit could not be put in continuous fan mode to cover the noise.... More
