Reasonably Clean and nice bedding. Front desk folks could be more friendly. Multiple items not filled for breakfast. Price too high for a motel in a small town. Everything worked in room. Friends that had another room had a non working tv.

Too many violations to list; I would never stay at this location nor any other Best Western. If you value your safety, do not stay at this hotel, especially if you are a single female. The personnel were insensitive to the harm they caused me.

Room was clean and parts were updated (like vanity and mirror), but the bathroom door was the original and it didn't close all the way. Also the door to the outside was old and there was daylight coming through the bottom. Disappointed that the pool was closed. The website should alert people that the pool (which is outdoor) is not...

I'd never stay in Athens again in my life..terrible place, not worth your time or money . The breakfast is cheap and stale the beds are hard and the pillows feel like the are falling apart from the inside out. I'd rather sleep in my car and save my money,

Very nice clean rooms. Very much recommend. I stay in hotels around 100 times per year and this one is nice and the price is reasonable. Breakfast was average of a motel but overall was hot and fresh.

We have stayed here many times in the past on our way to Florida. It has been a good while since we have stayed here and it was our first time since the remodel. The improvements are great and the room was clean. We were able to bring our pets, which was great. The complimentary breakfast was good with many...

Besides the great location, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Stay away from Hardees! I give them a zero! Would have been nice to know Applebee's was on the other side of the hotel. Couldn't get the vending machine to work, but the front desk took care of us.

This was a fantastic place to nest for the night. Our fury friend was welcome and the motor lodge style was convenient for his walks. The grounds caretaker was pleasant and told us he is adding a doggy walk area. He will add a bag post and really appreciated us cleaning up after our Wilbur. The breakfast was top notch...

If you are looking for an overnight place to stay while traveling this is an excellent choice. Although, it is an older style (outdoor entrances) the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the shower-heads are up high, it is fairly quiet, and you get a nice complimentary breakfast to start your day. Be sure to try out the pancake...
