Reviewed October 9, 2013

First time staying in Athens, so I try to always stay outside of city centers to get great deals. The value for the price was great. $99 for a 2 Queen Studio. Free Breakfast, parking, and Wifi was included. Breakfast included a variety of options. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, cheese, sliced ham, toast, biscuits, and much more. Bigger selection than Holiday Inn Express. Room was very comfortable, thermostat wont let you go lower that 65 degrees, but this tends to be the norm at most of the hotels I stay at. Christopher at the front desk was excellent! Check-In was a breeze and was even able to get an earlier check-in. Location was great, just a few minutes away from a Kroger, fast food, restaurants, and movie theater. Also about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown athens. The only reason the hotel is getting 4 stars is because housekeeping and maintenance could be better. Found that only what you can see is cleaned and everything else is completely missed. Dust was built up a lot behind night stand and furniture. I am afraid that even though this hotel is still fairly new, the rooms will be neglected over time by housekeeping an maintenance as most hotels tend to be. Also, the ihome on the nightstand was missing the power cord, but called the front desk and received another one within 10 mins...excellent service once again! One of the book reading lights over one of the beds were not working, and housekeeping informed me that it could not be fixed until the following night. In conclusion, great hotel for the value, so close to five stars, but with the minor housekeeping and maintenance issues, it will only get four stars.

Without a doubt, the biggest surprise in hotels. Four years old but in like new condition. Sparklingly clean. Big and comfortable mini suites. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very reasonably priced. Easy to find. Restaurants and shopping nearby. Next time we travel to the area we will stay here.

I always like to stay at Marriott brand hotels. That said, this hotel exceeded my expectations for this brand. This hotel is fairly new. Our room was large with with a up to date decor. I thought I was at a boutique hotel.

We came in the Friday before a game and caught a cab downtown. The room was plenty large for the four of us traveling together. The atmosphere was jovial (lots of bulldog fans as well). The rooms are new and modern. Shower was perfect and clean after a long Gameday.

This hotel boats clean and comfortable rooms with a roomy shower, comfortable beds, a sitting room, and tons of small conveniences. The entire room was immaculately clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to return!

It is a little far from town and quality restaurants, but fine if one is just passing through.
The building is well maintained and clean. The staff are very helpful. The rooms have a contemporary design and comfortable beds and contain all modern amenities such as wi-fi.
The parking is free and the breakfasts are great. Would stay again.

Our plan was to stay here for three nights while we visited family and UGA. This hotel is modern, clean and comfortable but it isn't near anything. It was so cold and rainy in Georgia and the only pool was outdoors. We left a day early. If my son decides to attend UGA we will probably pick a hotel closer to the university. The great rate included a nice breakfast if you don't mind driving everywhere.
