“GREAT FIND and Budget Wise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

On the way to The Masters we 4 gals were driving through Athens and spotted this hotel. We stopped and got 2 rooms for the next night as we were going to Augusta for the night but leaving after our day at The Masters. The office staff was so helpful and friendly and we got 2 rooms for 1/4 of the cost of the place we were going to in Augusta for the night! After we arrived in Augusta we realized if we ever come back we stay in Athens and drive the nearly 2 hrs each way - an easy drive and a nice area. The area is near the college, quiet and we had a clean room which was updated. We didn't use the breakfast area but it looked nice.

Room Tip: Worth the drive to Augusta and back and there is a lot to do in Athens but we didn't have time t...

Glad to hear that you ladies enjoyed yourselves CheryllynC! We had several other guests like yourself, that chose to drive back and forth to avoid the super high rates around the Augusta area. I hope The Masters was a fun experience, and we hope to see you next year! Don't hesitate to call us in advance, should you need anything at all. 706-546-7311.

I had a great experience at the Best Western in Athens GA. The room was clean. They were very helpful with where to dine, and site see. Also, gave us directions to the university and downtown. Anything we needed they were right there. Had no problem. Had a great stay!!

Being in an SEC football town you have a whole range of places from skank to amazing and Best Western is on the amazing end! The property is well-maintained and in a great location. You have the Varsity (an old drive-in joint with hot dogs and burgers) to Shane's ribs right next door and a wide variety of places in easy driving distance. The staff (Ernesto, Julian, Tripp) are all great with customer service and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms are cleaned properly upon check-in and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Even with the property in a lower place than the surrounding streets its very quiet

We were doing a quick one-night stay in Athens, GA and didn't need to stay anywhere special, so we let the low price do the talking, but could well have paid twice as much somewhere else that was not as clean, friendly, convenient or with such a decent breakfast!

I stayed at the Best Western Athens in April 2013. I thought the room was okay, but I stayed at the Best Western in Winder the next night for a cheaper price and was much more impressed. The carpet at the BW Athens was a little damp and sticky. And we only got three small towels for two adults. My only other complaint is the noise level. People were running around outside my room, screaming down the walkway at all hours of the night.
