I would have rated higher if not for the lady at the front desk and the housekeeper insisting on cleaning the room after the first day. I had to take my dog outside and walk around while three people checked out the room. That was very intrusive and inappropriate. My dog is a 13 year old Golden mix who only...

Rooms are older but still clean and quiet. The boys enjoyed the pool. And the breakfast was good. Just danish and coffee but they also offer a good discount at the shoneys next door. Its convenient to the interstate as well so if you plan to do things outside of Athens it's a great location.

Stopped here after finally being too tired to keep driving through. It was a holiday weekend so we expected the normal pricing to be a little higher, which it was, but still the cheapest in the area. Rooms are dated, but still spacious and clean. The a/c is not on before you get into the room. That would probably be...

We just wanted a place to lay our selves down and rest after a long drive. Room was minimal..smelled a bit musty. It was very quiet to sleep. Breakfast was just cold stuff and minimal. Reception check in was quick and friendly staff.

The good: room clean, everything worked, bed was surprisingly comfortable. Rates reasonable. Suffices for someone needing a place to sleep and shower with TV and internet. The not-so-good: property is extremely dated and is in dire need of an upgrade. It looks as if nothing in the room had been changed or updated since the 1970s. (That is probably why...

Check-in was easy and Gayle was very nice. We got to the room and there was water all over the bathroom floor where a pipe had broken in the wall. The water stain made it obvious it had been there for some time. I called the desk and was told what room they were going to move us to, then...
