From the minute we opened the door to the minute we shut it behind us, all our time there was negative. The person behind the counter (couldn't tell gender) never greeted us but gave us hand signals on how to get in the locked office. When I presented a printout of our reservation he/she never even glanced at it but...

We were late booking a room football game, and we knew it would not be the Hilton. When we first arrived, there was another guest stating that there were bugs in his room and he would not be staying. The first room I was given, reeked of some horrible odor. I felt like I could not catch my breath in...

The good: location was not bad, could walk to downtown The bad: don't know if you'd want to. Sketchy people hanging around the hotel. Was given a key to an occupied room at check in. Parking lot was dirty (should have been our first clue) The ugly: room was filthy dirty, window had been recently shattered and replaced, there was...

I have reserved a room using Hotels.com, but when I checked in, the lady said they don't acknowledge the this reservation so I had to pay it again. She also told me that Hotels.com will not charge me. However, on the second day, when I checked my credit card, I did charge twice. When I got back to the hotel,...

This is off the scale bad. Arrived for very late check-in. Good thing it was dark and I was tired cuz I would have otherwise slept in the car. Was traveling with fiancé and her daughter. They slept in their clothes atop the covers. Need I say more ?

Simple motel. Great water pressure, comfy beds, big, cushy pillows. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast bar includes muffins, fruit, coffee, and cereals. Room comes with small refrigerator and microwave, flat screen TV with HBO, Showtime, and wifi. Covers all the basics, and is walking distance to the Varsity, Saucehouse, and short distance to downtown Athens. Many rooms have 2 and...

We came last minute for new years eve. The only good side is it is close to downtown athens. Other than that it is complete garbage. We came back st night to find multiple cockroaches on our bathroom counter. The dresser drawer is broken off. Bed sheets don't look clean. Everything looks trashy.

Despicable. My sister and I stayed in the first room on ground level closest to the reception lobby. There are intense cobwebs in every corner and hanging down throughout the room, so large there is no way a maid could overlook their presence (see photo included). Everything (furniture, knobs, hair dryer, carpet) has a slippery coating, so much so that...

I'm not even sure where to start. I booked it almost at the last minute, and I would have rather drove home after the convention I attended at UGA. The whole room smelled of smoke, AND THERE WAS AN ASHTRAY in the room, even though it was billed as a Non Smoking room. The bathroom was very dirty, the toilet...

Word cannot describe how bad this was. Just don't. Bugs on bed, candy wrapper on floor, toilet only flushes occasionally. Lamp not working in bathroom. Really. It's not a Travelodge anymore, but a Travel Inn. Just don't.
