As a former UGA grad it had been several years since I was able to stay here. I was here for a recent "football" weekend - the spring G Day game.
I've read previous reviews where folks complained about noise and I have to say it wasn't anything I experienced. The hotel was quiet in the evenings - other than conversations you could hear out in hallway which I've experienced at other hotels as well.
The rooms are smallish. I had a 2 single bed room. The bathroom is big enough for one person only. But there is a work desk and big screen TV in the room.
The staff of the hotel is over the top nice and wonderful. For the most part, it's students who are working there. One piece of advice though, if you arrive after 9p and want to get some dinner at the hotel - you are out of luck. You either have to go out of the hotel or have something delivered.
Since the hotel is located on campus if you want to go somewhere in Athens, it is a good walk for those who are in shape. There are a handful of establishments a very short walk from the hotel as well. And it does have a couple of restaurants on site and neat little bar & grill area - food stops at 9 but they'll serve drinks until 10p.
The beds are very comfortable and the hotel is kept up very nice. In short, if you're there to stay on campus - this is the place to be. There may be nicer and bigger rooms in Athens from the chain hotels but they're going to require a 2 night minimum if it's a football weekend, as well as jack up the price. The UGA hotel is a great value.
