“Great value.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Our room was very clean and large and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our usual place was booked up and we chose Best Western because of the great Trip Advisor reviews. The location is convenient. We were very pleased and would stay here again.

here now with high schoolers for JanFest, the huge UGA high school honor band. I admit I was a little skeptical when we checked in but after being here just a few minutes I could tell that the property was clean and safe. (Important when traveling with your child and others.) I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone traveling on a budget looking for clean and safe. And the free continental breakfast is a plus for teens too!

We use this motel as often as the price and quality are acceptable to us. When it isn't we stay in surrounding towns. This location is pretty good and if I choose to, I can walk to Sanford Stadium and the UGA campus. Sometimes I walk into the downtown area of Athens to enjoy the various sights and storesa and restaurants. The staff are usually nice and very willing to help when needed. I have had minor issues with the house keeping and a few things they might overlook, but over many years I have found them as good as any other motel or hotel that I have used in any town.

We stayed at the Best Western - Athens over the New Year holidays. Excellent property, great location near campus, and overall a very nice stay. The rooms were very clean and average sized. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet, despite New Years activities going on around us. Service was friendly as well.

This was a good place to stay with my dog. The room was simple and clean, the nightly rate for the dog was $10/night which was the best rate I found in town for pets. Would recommend it for anyone needing accommodations when traveling with a pet.

Got to give a shout out to the Best Western in Athens, GA. Just a brisk walk from downtown Athens and the University of Georgia, this BW covers all of the bases. Super friendly staff, very clean rooms, safe area -- just a fine, reasonable place to stay. If you're looking for a safe, clean hotel in a good location: This is it.

Be safe out there.

I am excited to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us Larry S! As you mentioned, we are right on the cusp of downtown Athens, yet far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle that the Athens scene can have on big weekends. Having a top-notch staff that offers a clean and comfortable place to stay at a competitive price is something we take pride in. Thank you for staying- hope to see you again soon!

My family and I had to visit the Athens area due to a death in the family. Since I have a Best Western Rewards card it is the first hotel that I began looking for. I will be honest and say that I was a little concerned when I drove up and saw that the entrance to my room would be an outside door. I normally look for hotels that have a access to the rooms only once you are inside the main building. After checking in and meeting staff this was no longer a concern for me. I felt completely safe and at ease at this hotel. The staff at this location was wonderful. I will stay here again if I ever visit Athens again. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms most convient as I did not notice an elevator
