“Different and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

This hotel is out of the way - still in Athens, but neither downtown nor surrounded by strip malls. The result is, you sacrifice convenient location for peace and quiet. The hotel is new and very "green." Lots of environmentally friendly touches -nice to see a hotel making this kind of effort. Decor is not the typical "cookie-cutter" look. Rooms and lobby have a fresh look.

The complimentary breakfast is excellent -huge selection. Lots of other perks, like a giant bowl of gourmet lollypops at the front desk.

Room layout was different -beautiful, yet a little awkward (but nothing that would prevent us from returning). Very clean and comfortable, but nowhere to put your "stuff." One hook in the bathroom, normal closet, but no dresser. Another problem was the unusual bathroom mirror. Lighting made shaving difficult.

Still, excellent value and a fun place. We will return.

Newer hotel which shows both in design and appearance. Bright, airy and modern throughout. Located with easy access to the "Rt. 10 Loop" but no traffic noise at all inside. Comfortable beds, large flatscreen TV and easy-sitting furniture make room stay a pleasure. The only criticism is that our room had only one (1) drawer. Not a problem for short stay but a longer visit would be a little awkward for clothing storage. Very clean throughout and no intrusive noises from other rooms a definite plus. Breakfast was typical but satisfactory. Staff was very attentive and helpful. VAriety of dining and shopping close. Will certainly stay here again in future.

We had a very comfortable and clean room. Loved the couch and desk. Large, flat screen tv was appreciated. Breakfast was adequate. All in all this was a very good hotel and we would definitely stay here again. Price of the room was very reasonable.

The entire place seemed fresh and up-to-date. The room was large and well maintained. The breakfast was nothing to brag about but it wasn't terrible. The breakfast area was poorly stocked which seems like a managment problem considering that one lady was working the front desk and the breakfast area. Check in was not easy as the lady working the front desk seemed confused and slightly rude. The housekeeping staff seemed to do a very good job except for the bathroom area which was littered with hairs which were on the counter and all over the floor (gross!) All of that said, the beds were very comfortable and inviting and I would return to this hotel if need be.

Springhill Suites is so clean and fresh, I thought it was brand new, not open 3 years. Spa colors, big rooms, big bathrooms, comfy bed, and very quiet, even though it was a UGA game weekend. They even kept the comp breakfast open late for the guests.

My wife and I spent a two night getaway at the Athens, GA Springhill Suites.

The hotel has a very nice upbeat decor. The room was large and comfortable. The TV had lots of cable channels, HBO, and SHO.

Nice large tiled shower in the bathroom. Paul Mitchel products.

The breakfast was just ok. Nothing special. Could have more variety.

The staff did a great job meeting all our special requests.

We spent one night in Athens and stayed at the SpringHill Suites. Great rooms and fastest check-in I've ever experienced at a hotel. My husband said that the gym was very small, but that was the only downside. Quick drive into downtown Athens. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for your comments. Our apologies. We must have failed to mention our FREE access to the full gym at St. Mary's Wellness Center-just next door.
