Motel 6 Athens
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed 5 January 2013

In town for a dog show and we stayed at the Motel 6. I usually prefer outside corridor motels.. just makes it easier when traveling with large dogs, but it worked out fine. The room was clean and comfortable. Big, corner-sized bathroom. The vanity and sink are actually inside the bathroom, unlike most motels these days. We were only there for one night, but had a pleasant stay and no problems!

Room Tip: At this location, the corridor is on the inside instead of outside.

This is by far the best Motel 6 I have stayed at in years! Clean, fresh smelling, and quiet. Of course it's not the Marriott but with four kids it was affordable and the best for the money! We were driving home from Florida and arrived at night so could not see much of the city but being that it was right off the highway I was very impressed.

Rather plain and worn from the outside, I almost skipped it and I'm a regular at Motel 6. However, I asked to see a room and it was fine. Carpet could use more attention when vacuuming, but the bathroom was clean, mattresses are comfortable as as the pillows. I travel with my dog and prefer to give Motel 6 my business because of their pet policy. Don't forget that you get what you pay for! I paid $35 for a night, I don't expect the Hilton!!!

It was what they say it is, "a clean comfortable room." We stayed 2 nights while visiting family and it was a great deal. Nothing fancy but it was clean and the mattresses were alot better than we thought they would be. Great place to stay when Grandma's house is full!!!!

Stayed here overnight with my daughter and my dog. This was the perfect place if you are just looking for an inexpensive, clean, quiet, safe and pet friendly place to sleep. Although the foyer and hall did smell of smoke, my room was odor free... and clean! Sheets and towels were clean and fresh smelling, no stains, mattress was comfy, and the bathroom was spotless. I spoke with the owner (who lives on site) and he said they had purchased the property as a distress sale and were in the midst of fixing it up. He was very friendly and helpful and I will definitely stay here again when passing through. Some people may desire the little luxuries of a more expensive hotel, such as continental breakfast, fridge/microwave/ coffee pot in room, etc, but if you are just looking for a place to sleep that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg (you'll need those to pay for the gas in your tank) for those additional things, then this is the place! I wish there were more like this across the country.

Room Tip: If you have a pet, your room will be on the first floor. Very convenient for those canine bathroom b...

It is a nice little place right next to the interstate, reasonably priced, but the whole place - lobby, hallway, and most definitely the rooms - all smelled heavily of smoke. It was like I was walking into a bar or something. The disgusting smell permeated everything, I even noticed it in the parking lot. Was there a smoker's convention going on there at the same time? I don't know, but it was pretty disgusting. There were cigarette burns in the carpet, in the comforter, even in the sandpaper ... sorry, the "towels".

Room Tip: If you're a smoker, you'll love this place. If not, it's not such a great place.
