Best Western Athens
Ranked #11 of 23 Hotels in Athens
GreenLeadersGold level
Reviewed 9 December 2013

My family and I had to visit the Athens area due to a death in the family. Since I have a Best Western Rewards card it is the first hotel that I began looking for. I will be honest and say that I was a little concerned when I drove up and saw that the entrance to my room would be an outside door. I normally look for hotels that have a access to the rooms only once you are inside the main building. After checking in and meeting staff this was no longer a concern for me. I felt completely safe and at ease at this hotel. The staff at this location was wonderful. I will stay here again if I ever visit Athens again. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends or family.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms most convient as I did not notice an elevator

The staff was very helpful and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The only real drawback is the tiny sized breakfast are, however there is a plan in motion to increase it dramatically. Overall this is a very decent hotel.

Thank you for your contribution Jarvis T! We take pride in providing superior customer service and top notch cleanliness- while still at an affordable price. Like you mentioned, we will soon be having a big construction project! This will give us a new tower that will over look Milledge Avenue, while also peering into our city's historic downtown district. The addition will include the larger breakfast area, indoor pool, and of course additional rooms. I appreciate your review, and we hope to see you again soon! 706-546-7311.

We went over to Athens for a Football game at the last minute. The Best Western came open late on Friday night. We booked it after reading Tripadvisor reviews. The Motel is simple but very clean. The location is the key. We walked 15 mins to Sanford stadium, then 12 mins to Downtown and finally, 10 mins to our Motel. We saw a game, ate dinner Downtown and stopped for drinks before walking back. We never had to drive or try to take a Taxi. If you wish to stay central to Athens, this is a great bet.

Glad you chose to stay with us James H! I hope you had fun at the football game, and that you enjoyed the downtown Athens scene. We too feel our location is a plus. Being central to most everything in Athens is a key, like you said, and something our customers can use to their advantage. Thank you for staying with on your football weekend- we hope to see you again in the future! Call us for anything you might need! 706-546-7311.

I have stayed at this Best Western many times and will do so again. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and Julian went way out of his way to accommodate and assist me with a minor issue (some tv channels had no sound). The room was very clean.

The room was large, and had a fridge and a microwave. There is no elevator, and there are two floors. The clientel is not high class. Location is very good for the University. The free breakfast was pretty good. Overall, a pretty good experiance for someone interested to get maximum value for your money.

We appreciate your comments Joel W! It is our opinion that all rooms in today's market should include a fridge/microwave combo, as all of rooms do. People always ask "is it extra for a room with these appliances" and the answer is "no!" Being close to everything in Athens is a plus for guests that stay with us, as well as having a FREE breakfast every morning. Give us a call if necessary! 706-546-7311.

I am always looking for a good night sleep when traveling. This Best Western wasn't appealing from the outside but I had read that the rooms were clean. I agree. The sheets had no signs of wear and tear and very clean. The double beds were firm allowing for a good night's rest.

Very clean rooms. The staff was very nice. Our rooms were ready early and they let us check out late without a fee. Great location. You can walk to downtown food and shops. I would stay there again without hesitation. Beds were a bit too soft for my taste, but I like a firm bed.
