“Another Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Every time I'm in Athens, this is where I stay. This stay was just as great as they have been in the past. This time I was on the side away from the Waffle House and Shell Station so I wasn't awaked by the early morning trash trucks.

The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful. Internet worked well.

Will stay here again!

Dirty tile floor, dirty chair, tub so worn I didn't get in. Bugs everywhere in ice room. Hard and saggy beds. So much repair work needed! Never again....I will spend an extra $30 bucks!

We have stayed at many Choice Hotels and we tend to steer clear of Quality Inns. This hotel had the best reviews for the price on our way to Florida for vacation. We arrived very late at night and had previously requested a room next to family. When we arrived, check in was LITERALLY 45 seconds. I was greeted with a smile and warmth. Our room was next to family as promised. The doors open to the exterior of the hotel and again, we generally steer clear of these, but the area felt very safe and it was quiet for a weekend. The room was exceptionally clean, updated and comfy. I am a pretty tough reviewer and there is NOTHING I can say to improve this hotel. The large whirlpool tun was very nice with the granite surround. The beds were very comfy. Breakfast had more choices that the typical Comfort Suites that we generally frequent. We were 100% pleased with this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat.

We stopped here on our way to Nashville and the location was perfect and there were lots of options nearby for supper. The room was comfortable and quiet, considering how close it was to the interstate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are quieter than the front

Stayed as a midway point of a long trip, and this hotel was wonderful! Clean, quiet rooms, nice employees, and near the interstate and several restaurants and shops. Breakfast was much nicer than anticipated - considering the price! As another reviewer said, the secluded location made me nervous at first, but there was high occupancy so there were people all around and we had no problems. Definite re-do if we are ever this way again!

Great location, right off the interstate and within walking distance of gas station, McDonalds and Waffle House. Very secluded which made me a little nervous with the exterior doors, but we had no problems. Pool was well lit when we arrived after dark and looked very inviting. Bathroom area had sink seperate from toilet and shower, and was very nicely done. Water pressure in shower was great and towels were a nice size. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was typical with eggs, sausage, waffles, pastries and cereal.

The desk clerk was friendly and helpful as the A/C in our first room wasn't working. In a flash we were in a new room. It was semi-updated, nice linen, new sink, however the whirlpool tub looked dingy, it had a non slip stick on mat that was old and permanently attached. We had wanted to use this tub, we paid extra for the upgrade, but opted not to as we were tired and didn't want to try to explore the cleanliness. There were two curly hairs on the shower surround. A strangely placed commercial florescent light hung above the toilet. I'm sure all hotels have problems with a bug or two, but we saw 4 centipedes in the bathroom floor, and one roach on the wall by the bed. This creeped me out, if we weren't so tired and hadn't changed rooms once already we would have complained. Don't get me wrong, the room was nice enough for the value, and maybe centipedes are coming in from outside, but it was a bit much for me after seeing what other Quality Inns offer. The breakfast did have microwave eggs and sausage, I can't comment on this as I only ate a waffle.
