Best Western Athens

Reviewed April 4, 2014

This hotel was o.k. One room had a bit of an odor. We booked four rooms, others were clean. One room had only one washcloth and one bed in another didn't have a sheet. It's a fairly good mid-level motel. Nothing special but not a dump.

In town for business and was told to stay here because of cost savings. That is always a warning sign right? It is a typical hotel frequented by folks on a budget and construction workers. Probably great for a game day flop but....

Anyway. It's beat up a bit but the bed was VERY comfortable which surprised me, and the water was always hot. The breakfast did not have a lot of selections and space is very limited but the waffles were tasty. I wish it were closer to downtown so I could walk but it's not very safe considering what you have to walk through to get there (housing projects), but overall not bad. I would stay here again

Thank you for sharing Billy M! I am glad to hear that you had a good night's rest in our beds. We have recently upgraded our mattress pads to provide guests with even more comfort- we have been getting great comments about them, similar to yours! I appreciate you staying with us, and let us know if we can ever assist you in any way. Thanks! 706-546-7311.

I would stay here again because of the comfortable beds, and clean rooms. The only draw back was one entry way into the motel,which was the case in February when I stayed here.They are doing some remodeling so maybe that'll change.

Thank you for posting to our page NateB4! I am glad to hear that you were comfortable during your stay. As you mentioned we do only have the one way in and out (for security purposes), but that will be changing soon with the remodel we will be having soon. Instead of entering on Milledge Avenue, our main entrance will be on Broad Street for the time being during our remodel. Hope to see you again, and keep an eye out for new things here at Best Western Athens! 706-546-7311.

I stayed at this Best Western a while back, and was stopping through Athens with my daughters on our way to Florida for Spring Break. I chose to stay again because of the great experience I had last time! The staff here is second to none, rooms are clean, and most importantly, I am able to bring my daughters somewhere I feel safe. The rates are very competitive and allow us to stay within our travel budget. That being said, I highly recommend this property for any traveler that is needing a clean/comfy place at a reasonable price!

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Best Western in Athens. It was accessible, clean and the staff was both professional and friendly. Additionally, they were very helpful. The hotel is near the Varsity and other conveniences. Fantastic group of employees, I think they all deserve a raise!

We were touring colleges and this was one stop among many. The location was very convenient to the college. They had small beds but definitely the most comfortable of the 5 hotels we stayed in. The layout of the hotel made it a bit noisy but things quieted down after 8 so it was fine.
