“Nice Room, Sloppy Housekeeping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

The Hampton Inn in Athens, GA is for the most part very nice. We stayed in a King room with a love seat sofa. It had all the amenities you would expect, mini frig, microwave, hair dryer, iron & board, flat screen TV, coffee maker, etc. There is no in-room safe (not a big deal). I was pleased to find the toilet paper to be double ply. We carry or own because so many hotels skimp on this with single ply. The free breakfast was good with plenty of choices. If you're staying for just one night the accommodations are good. But, if you are staying several nights, as we did, you'll find storage space severely lacking. There were two small night stands each having three small drawers and there is a single deep drawer beneath the microwave and the closet is small. We were unable to unpack our suit cases even though there was plenty of space to accommodate a chest of drawers. Housekeeping is poor. The bed was made and the room straightened each day, but the floors were ignored. The last guest left popcorn on the floor which we cleaned up and the hassocks were dirty.

Went to Athens for a football game. Hotel was a bit older and much of the common areas were under renovations. The lobby was recently remodeled and beautifully done, but the floors in front of the elevators were slab where the tiles had been torn out, the elevator carpets are in desperate need of replacement and the it's obvious that the rooms, although very nice, are also in need of renovations. Our stay was comfortable and quiet. However, I thought $169/night for a hotel that is undergoing major renovations was a little much to ask. Applebees across the parking lot.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor...while the hotel was sold out, it was quiet and comfortable.

Hampton is a hampton is a hampton. Its what you would expect from a hampton nice bed. Ok breakfast. Clean. Nothing special but better than most. Great cookies before dinner!!! Love those extra touches. Need mini fridges in the room. Close enough to downtown but could seem a little far for most people. You cant walk to downtown way too far.

I chose this property because it's a Hampton and the HGI in downtown was not available for our dates. While there are plenty of restaurants near the hotel the traffic pattern makes it difficult to navigate if there is any congestion at all. The staff is as nice as you could ask for and the facilities are clean, but the beds are in dire need of an overhaul. We originally planned to stay three nights but the EXTREME rate increase on Friday night (attributable to the UGA football game on Saturday) encouraged us to move down the road a bit. We'll probably look elsewhere the next time we visit Athens.

Athough the level of service was Hilton quality, this hotel is average right now. They appear to be going through renovation, so I am hopeful that it will improve in the future.

There are issues here that are not typical for Hilton:
Bed not pillow top - not as comfortable as most Hampton's
Security lacking (maintenance let me in my room when key wouldn't work without ID)
Odd decor
No outlet near bed
Toilet flush handle falling out
No small store to purchase snacks/drinks (vending machine only)

Location is convenient to restaurants, but the area doesn't feel safe. I was approached twice while out at my car by people asking for money.

Overall, it has the basics and is satisfactory, and the staff was very helpful. It is very clean and will suffice.

Stayed two nights on a business trip and had a very comfortable stay. Room was up-to-date and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, but nothing special. One down side to the hotel is that you cannot turn left on Broad St out of the parking lot. For out of town visitors this can be a problem is you do not know your way around and cannot easily make a U-turn when traffic is heavy. Overall though it was a good experience and will stay again.

I purposefully stayed away from downtown Athens to avoid the college crowd and was happy with the quietness of this location. There are plenty of dining options within a short walking distance. It's only 3 miles from downtown Athens, so if you have a car, you are more than close enough to all of the University's attractions and action. Wireless internet worked well (unusual at most hotels) and food was of typical Hampton quality. Staff was friendly and room was clean.
