SpringHill Suites Athens
Ranked #5 of 23 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I love the location. Close enough to be convenient and far enough to avoid congestion. Very clean. Great staff. Convenient to all of Athens and Watkinsville. The only criticism I have is the lack of an in house restaurant/room service and no local delivery.

Stayed: August 2012
Thank Matt B

slightly off the beaten path from the downtown area, but close to everything else. The distance might be quite helpful during home games and will get you away from all the downtown student insanity. The place looks brand-new and was perfectly clean with well-furnished rooms. The internet worked flawlessly, and parking was very easy and convenient. We will happily stay there again.

Had to attend college orientation with my child .(oops, not a child anymore I guess) and we stayed here. The front desk staff could not have been nicer. Rooms were clean and comfy. A lot of light streams in under the door, but I just put some extra pillows down and had no further issue. Beds were comfy and the room was clean. Great shower, no tub, which was fine and lots of hot water.

Nice to have a mini fridge and microwave as well. Small pool area, but everyone enjoyed our visit. You could walk across the highway and hit Happy Hour at Loco's Bar and Grill and not have to worry about drinking and driving.

Thank you. We are becoming more popular with vistors to the UGA campus as they learn how easy it is to access Loop 10 and avoid the lights on the Atlanta Hwy toward downtown Athens..

I was torn between staying at the Courtyard downtown verus here at the SpringHill Suites a few minutes away. Since I have a car, I decided that staying at the SpringHIll would be fine. All of the staff that we've interacted with are extremely friendly, accomodating and helpful. This includes the front desk, management, housekeeping and others that we've run into during our stay!

I like that the breakfast is included. It's definitely more than a continental breakfast. There's make-your-own waffles, scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, cereal, bagels, muffins, coffee, juice, fruit, etc. It was a little busy in the AM, but they were very prompt replenishing items and keeping the area clean. I do with there was a little more seating in the breakfast area, but it wasn't a big deal.

The room has a small fridge, sink and microwave. It's just right for reheating leftovers and keeping a few drinks cold. The wired internet service has been reliable, as well as the wireless internet throughout the hotel.

The pool is long and narrow with a handicapped access chair! The pool is decent for swimming short laps or just splashing around in the water.

The photos online are just what the place looks like. I'd highly recommend this property!

Room Tip: All rooms are essentially the same.

I was in town for my son's UGA orientation and just needed a place to stay overnight. I wish I could have stayed here longer. Clean, friendly but not overbearing and very nice decor. After having had a full day it was nice to have a peaceful place to rest and recharge. Great breakfast, too.

This is a well manicured and friendly place to spend a night or two. Rooms are well appointed,bed is comfortable and staff friendly.
During breakfast I noticed Christopher, the manager helping to clean up the service. There were two other employes working on the same project. This wasn't redundancy but rather a supervisor taking hands on responsibility.
Keep up the exemplary work! Its very appreciated.
