Not bad but nothing special. We just needed a decent place to stay for a night and it got the job done. Staff seemed friendly and we didn't have any problems. The room seemed pretty clean and we would stay there again for a short stay.

This hotel is outdated and no one seems to have ever cared. There are bugs, blood stains, and sticky carpet floors. Spend the extra 20$ a night and go somewhere else. I have slept on kitchen floors that were cleaner.

It is an average property. I've been staying there for 20 years when I go to Athens. It hasn't really changed much. Parking is convenient to the room. With the construction, it's a hassle having to drive to get breakfast.

Good price and location. Housekeeping could do a little better cleaning and the sink and shower was slow. Parking is a little tight and I will be glad when construction of the new part of the motel is complete.

For several years I have stayed at Best Western when traveling to Athens. In fact, it is a regular stop for me. The staff are very polite, manner-able, and best of all they remember your name when you show back up. The beds/rooms are clean, internet is great, and within good walking distance to the many amenities downtown and even...

OK, the positive: 1. good water pressure in the shower. 2. clean sheets. 3. (Most important) Pet friendly. Negative: 1. There for 3 nights and no wi fi til last night there, and reported to front desk 3 times. 2. Front desk; college students who seemed very intimidated by any approach or feedback. Previous yrs desk reception was more professional....

I'm deeply sorry to hear about your most recent stay with us, mcrba. This is not the norm for us. I'm glad we were at least able to provide you with clean sheets and a room for yourself and your furry companion. I am personally attending to each issue you mentioned so that it does not happen with our other...

They're under construction but that didn't bother me since the rooms aren't under construction. It's a new building they're erecting. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the service was impeccable

5 Star. The rooms were clean, smelled good to. The beds were fresh and cozy. There were some work being done on the place but nothing that got in our way. The only issue we did have was with the parking. Had to walk so far to get to and from the room. The staff was nice. I would consider...

I am basing this review solely off customer service from the manager, Tripp. There was a booking mishap between hotels.com and Best Western. Tripp called me and attempted to rectify the situation. We went back and forth a few times but ultimately he upheld and compensated us for the mix up. We ultimately had to cancel our reservation due to...

KOwens269, I want to personally thank you for your glowing review. I would have hated for you to show up to our property just to find out that you didn't have a place to stay. Needless to say, I felt as if I had an obligation to rectify this situation since it involved our property. Give us a call next...

The room was between shabby and sordid ( a heavily stained armchair and chipped paint everywhere). The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was adequate. The staff were friendly. As you have to walk to the street and up the hill to have breakfast a shortcut from the motel to the front desk would be very helpful, especially in bad weather.

I appreciate your feedback, travellingsenior2016. I would like to express my condolences regarding the issues you experienced in your room. As for the breakfast location, it is only temporary while we expand our property. Soon there will not be a small hike to the front lobby from the rooms. We hope to see you again!
