“Best hotel in Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We've stayed at both Holiday Inns downtown, and the Comfort Suites just north of downtown, all of which are fine, but this SpringHill Suites is head and shoulders above the rest. Called in advance to ask for quiet room for my parents, who are in their 70's, and Beth gave us gorgeous suites on very quiet 5th floor. At check-in, I don't think any desk clerk anywhere has been more engaging and welcoming than Christopher. Hotel is clean, beautiful and stylish. Definitely feels upscale. There's a Kroger about 5 minutes away if you need anything a supermarket would have. Minor downsides are 15 minute ride to downtown/university, no tub in our suites (though shower was huge), and not much of a fresh selection at breakfast. Overall, though, my new 1st choice to stay when visiting my kid at UGA!

Room Tip: Our 5th floor rooms were very quiet.

Our room was very clean & comfortable. Enjoyed having the separate sitting area. Breakfast choices were good, eggs, ham, waffles, cereal, toast & fruit. Laundry facilities on site were well maintained and clean as well. Only issue for us was the Hotel is a bit out of the way from the main area of Athens. No restaurants or shopping in walking distance. Otherwise, would recommend highly

My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights with our 3 kids. The front desk staff is extremely helpful and friendly, as is the maid staff and all other employees. The lady working the front desk when we checked in (Beth) allowed us to check in early and even rearranged our rooms to give us connecting rooms - one with a king and the other with two queens. She was considerate and accommodating. The breakfast is wonderful! Eggs, waffles, and a breakfast meat every morning, plus bagels, muffins, english muffins, cereal, etc. Each bread item was individually packaged so you didn't need to worry about who had touched it before you. The tables and lobby were always clean. Rooms were well laid out, clean, and comfortable. Plenty of pillows and towels. Both our rooms had standing showers (no tub), but this wasn't a problem for us. The water in the shower got hot really quickly, which was a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this hotel!

I was attending the Masters and could not afford to stay in Augusta. Athens is an hour and half away so I stayed here. This hotel is new and clean. Served breakfast with your stay which was fine...cereal, waffles, bagels, eggs and sausage.

I also enjoyed exploring the downtown area of Athens. This hotel is about 15 minutes from the University of Georgia and downtown.

I would recommend anyone to stay here.

Thank you for choosing us while you attended the Masters. You were not alone, we had many daytrippers to Augusta that week. Next year look for our golf package that will include 18 holes of golf at the UGA golf course!

Ok for those who have never been to Athens there is one thing the natives know is that like all college towns the downtown hotels can get ratty from football fans so its nice to have a very nice clean alternative for hotels.

The staff is very professional and the customer service is excellent from the front desk to the very nice breakfast lady.

I had never stayed in this Marriott brand before. I liked the look and layout but I have to admit I had a "princess and the pea" issue with the beds. One coworker loved the beds so I can not ding them for that since it could be me. Hated the plastic mattress cover and the bed was hard as a brick to me. I would suggest upgrading the mattress covers. Please;)

I liked having lots of shopping close by. There is a Star Bucks, Kroger, and Wal-Mart with in a quick couple minute drive.

Easy access to the 10 loop.

Thanks for a clean easy stay!

My husband and I were participating in a race called the Tough Mudder in Washington, Georgia. The town was small and Athens was the closest larger city with hotel availability. This hotel was great. We would stay here again.

The customer service was terrific. The price of the room was fair. The decor is more modern than the usual hotel chain. Very clean. There was a kitchenette-esque set up with a microwave, sink, and a mini fridge. The bathroom included a shower only and a toilet. The shower was a glass enclosed shower, but large enough for two if you wanted to shower together. There was a large full length mirror right outside the bathroom and there was a sink and nice space for applying makeup and such. The room included a hair dryer, too. The room, due to outside lighting and lighting in the hall, was a little bright for my tastes at night. When traveling, I tend to pack earplugs and an eye mask anyway. Came in handy here.

As for location, it was about 4 minutes away from downtown Athens. Since we were in town for a race, we didn't enjoy all the little bars and pubs in the area, but it was nice to be able to make a short drive to eat. Since we had that 4 minute drive, it kept things quiet at the hotel before race night.

Breakfast in the morning was nice. Oatmeal, eggs and bacon, bagels, waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, juices, and coffee. Again, since we were there just for the night, it was great to have breakfast there and hit the road for the race.

If you are an adult looking to stay close to the action, stay inside the loop in downtown Athens or closer to UGA. However, if you are a family, if you are looking for a nice place with a nice rate, if you are just stopping by Athens, this is a great choice.

Again, would recommend this hotel to others and would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed further down the hall, away from the elevators. I always think this is a good choice when...
