“Very Grateful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Found this downtown hotel close to the university. Just what I needed. Big music event that weekend and hotel was full, but staff very responsive and friendly. Only stayed one night but quality of room was great! My accolade goes out to the hospitality of the lady on the night staff. Just that morning I had purchased a new car and she let me park it where she could keep an eye on it for me all night. I got to sleep instead of worry all night. She's a saint in my book! Great location if you want downtown, great room and price, fast check in and out. Absolutely no complaints and would stay here without hesitation if I pass through Athens again.

I came to Athens to help my son find a house to purchase prior to his relocating in August. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant and informative upon our arrival. The internet wifi was not very strong and frequently dropped reception. There were lots of construction groups there and the noise level was elevated late into the evening. There was no place to sit outside other than the pool area which seemed to be locked the entire time we were there. It would have been nice to sit on the balcony in the evening. the room was clean and comfortable. there was not a lot of space to sit at the desk to work and move around the room but we managed. Overall, the stay was very nice and close to campus. I would recommend staying if your looking for a decent place for a decent price. Also, the breakfast choices were excellent.

The staff, from check-in to check-out , was most professional, kind and coureous. They never seemed too busy and gave me their undivided attention. For this I am most grateful. I am acquainted with Manager, Liz Moore. She has recruited a top-notched staff which serves the Best Western corporate motel industry well. I thin this location should receive national recognition. Best Western Athens is my only consideration when staying in Athens, Georgia. I applaud their future explansion plans. This creatibe renovation will enhance the property. Sincerely submitted, The Revs. Steve and Mary Ruth Davidson

The value for the price paid was excellent. The check in process was easy, the room was clean, and the staff very pleasant. This was also close to everything. We requested extra blankets and the hotel staff brought them right to our room. Best Western Patriots Point made us come down to the lobby to get the blankets ourselves!

This was a quick trip but it served the purpose of getting some rest. The hotel room was clean, but the exterior landscaping needs improvement (there is some neglect). I would have prefer more warmed foods for breakfast, but if you need some coffee and donut then it's ok. Clean and comfortable for the price.

I stayed here for four nights. The room was clean and spacious. Parking, WiFi and breakfast were included, so there were no surprise costs. The employees were kind, helpful and knew the surroundings.
I would definitely stay here again.
