“An oasis for us weary travelers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

After a long day traveling south on I-65 we were elated to get off the road and into a comfortable hotel room. I had done some research and booked our room ahead of the trip knowing that spring break traffic would be heavy.

There weren't a lot of nice options for hotels but the reviews for Hampton Inn & Suites in Athens, AL seemed to make the slightly premium price worth-while. The price point wasn't very high, but the average price for hotel rooms seemed to be about $30-40 cheaper/night in the area. Granted, those places had pretty spotty reviews.

We weren't disappointed. The hotel was clean, the rooms were really spacious and well-appointed, and the bed was super comfortable. If I had to point out a negative it would be the quality of the complimentary breakfast. It was average at best but we weren't expecting anything too fancy.

Hotel was nice overall but the breakfast in the morning was very loud and substandard to other Hampton locations. Rooms were very nice but a little pricey for other hotels in area. Clean and seems to be a newer hotel.

This was one of the nicest of the Hampton Inns I've stayed at. The room was clean and fresh, and staff were friendly. We came in late after a long drive, and the lady at the desk was great. She really made my 3 year old's day, when she let him "check in" and pick out his hospitality treat. :) Breakfast was good, internet worked great. I had no complaints with this stay.

It is right off the highway. Staff was very welcoming. The rooms were what you would expect at a Hampton and the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was great and the entire facility was clean. We will not hesitate to stay there again

Hampton Inns are not upscale hotels but they offer clean, warm, comfortable lodging while traveling. The Athens Hampton is the nicest of the many I've stayed at. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size, very comfortable, quiet and clean. The furniture was a bit nicer than that of other Hampton Inns I've stayed at recently.

After a long drive, its nice to have hot drinks readily available when you arrive, along with friendly staff to help you get your bearings as to what is available in the area (mainly restaurants and fast food). After a good nights sleep, the Athens Hampton had a nice variety of hot and cold foods available in the breakfast area. For my wife, who likes to sleep in, they offered "go bags" with fruit and muffins which she was happy to have as we went on our way.

We'll definitely stay here again on our way to the Alabama shore.

This is a very nice Hampton with all the usual Hampton-ish things. Nice indoor pool. Great breakfast with all the regular hot items, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, coffee, juice etc. You won't leave here hungry!
There are a lot of places to eat at this exit (Cracker Barrel, Mc D's, etc).

Only complaint would be the price - it is a bit pricey for the area.

Two lovely young ladies welcomed us to this Hampton on a late Sunday evening. They were pleasant, smiling, and helpful. Hotel was newer and decorated in a swank style. Rooms were standard Hampton as was the breakfast. After a long day of driving, we older folks enjoyed seeing the smiles of the check in gals. I would recommend this Hampton to anyone driving I65 in this area. Easy to access from highway.
