“Perfect for older travelers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We asked for an accessible room and got a very nice room with parking close to the door. Bathroom was exceptionally clean and appeared to be recently remodeled. Complimentary breakfast included foods that a diabetic could eat. Nicer than many Best Westerns we stayed in. Friendly, helpful staff. Did not hear any noise from other rooms or highway.

It was a business trip, and was looking forward to rest and relaxing after a day of traveling. It met and exceeded my exception and needs. The room was clean and the bed in excellent shape and the other items in the room were working and perform the service intended. The night was quit and very peaceful. After a good night a outstanding breakfast was provided, it was the best every, I have never had a breakfast with the looks, taste and well organized.

Nothing special, room had a musty smell, broken bathroom door, and an uncomfortable noisy bed. We didn't even bother staying for the breakfast, our room experience fell far below expectations so we thought...why bother.

We stayed at this property previously on our way down to the Gulf Coast...it's cheap, clean and convenient. Rooms are small, doors face the outside (which I don't like)...but, it works for a short/overnite stay. Breakfast is ok...small dining area...seems like we were stepping on each other.
For a cheap one nite stay, this is a good stop.

booked the room for family members that came down for our wedding. They loved the room especially the mini fridge and microwave - its rare to find both of these in the room!! too awesome!!! beds were comfy and room was clean and nice. will book room again if needed in future. This particular hotel is also in the middle of a great exit, lots of food choices around and gas stations and my brother even found a liquor store down the street :-).

Have stayed at this location 4 times in the past 2 years and each time we have been very pleased with the cleanliness and service. There are less expensive hotels at this intersate exit but they do not compare in the areas of Service,CLEANLINESS, rooms, and breakfast.. Did I mention CLEANLINESS!!!!

All employees at this Best Western are absolutely the best. Rooms were updated and clean. Breakfast was first class. Carpet was so clean, I could walk on it in white socks and no dirt. We have stayed in Athens for the Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention for the past eleven years and the Best Western was the best stay ever.
