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.
