“Very good accomodations in Athens”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

I stayed here on President's day weekend in 2012. I was expecting the standard "value-business" hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the facility. The lobby/atrium was quite imprressive and exceeded my expectations.
Even though the hotel is near a busy road, the hotel room was very quiet. The rooms are also quite large, with 2 queens plus a comfortable sitting area (sofa and chair) off to side. Everything looked new and clean.
My only gripe was the service... for some reason, they did not have anyone at the front desk. On two occassions I went to the desk and somebody from another area of the hotel had to "find someone" to help me. Get this straightened out and I would give it 5 stars.

I have found this hotel to be the best choice when visiting Athens! It is clean and always welcoming. The staff are all helpful & friendly. Rooms are all suites with lots of space. Indoor pool & nice workout machines. Computer station is helpful. Nice breakfast spread with lots of options. We'll be back ... Go Dawgs!

Stayed here as a family during a recent weekend visit. Property is still clean and well-kept. Hotel was busy with a lot of families -- perhaps a wedding was going on. Breakfast has been improved since the last visit. Gym was clean and treadmill was in good working order. Hotel is located in a convenient spot. Price was competitive, and entire stay was pleasant.

This will definitely be the place to stay for us in Athens when we return! The staff was friendly and cordial from the first minute stepping in the door. The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable, and the breakfast options were good. We had to leave one night earlier than originally planned, and had no problems with cancelling our second night. I highly recommend this hotel....you will have a lovely stay!

After fifty years of traveling to Athens, Ga from southeast Georgia( all five members of our family graduated from UGA), I have finally discovered a hotel that can be wholeheartedly recommended to anyone planning to stay in Athens. We had not been in the reception for 30 seconds before the manager came over and introduced himself. The entire staff echoed this friendliness and actually seemed to be enjoying their jobs. The housekeepers called elevators when they saw us coming down the hall and were always concerned that our stay was perfect. I will be forever thankful to the front desk staff for help in solving a personal situation involving time constraints. The hotel is spotless, the breakfast is fresh with many choices, and the rooms are very quiet(ours was right next to the elevator and we never heard a sound). I choose this hotel every time we visit Athens even though the event we are attending is held at another local hotel as was the case in January. I can't say enough nice things about this hotel.

We pride ourselves on providing our guests with a home a way from home experience. We have a positive guest service attitude and always remember the reason we came to work today is to take care of our guests.

Once again thank you for your business and choosing our hotel . We look forward to your next visit to Athens and to our hotel.
