Good place to stay.

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Our stay was good. The one thing that could be improved is the "breakfast buffet". It was nothing more than continental breakfast.

Prior arrival notice between 3&4 am

Posted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: Comfortable, clean, location good.
Cons: Night desk clerk could be a happy person, more accommodating. Far less outside noise for quiet enjoyment.
Location: Restaurants all around are good, lots of delivery choices. Shopping and transportation. Taxis are existent but not clean or timely.
Although I emailed ahead in my reservation and also called behind my online reservation TO notify arrival between 3&4am I was given a very hard time by the desk clerk when I arrived. Since I'd already paid all I needed to do was get my key and go to my room but it still took way too long to check in. I'd been up since 1 am traveling and was tired and my brother who was dropping me off needed to get to work. The desk clerk seemed an unhappy angry person. If he doesn't like helping people or really wants his job he should find another one. While the hotel is very comfortable, clean and nice it's far too noisy. I noticed there was work being done on the outside of the hotel which was probably the reason for excessive noise that doesn't give quiet enjoyment.

Wouldn't stay there again.

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Bathroom floor looked nice, also the tub & sink.
Cons: They need to remodel inside the hallways & doors. Breakfast could be improved.
Outside looked nice, but inside was old looking. Bathroom looked nice but the woodwork, like doors were shabby. Hallways were terrible, the baseboards were removed. Breakfast was the worst, I've ever had, but it was a continental, can't expect better. I'm used to fruit, yogurt, etc.

Will not stay here again.

Were given a room that had not been cleaned. A/C difficult to maintain overall temp of room. Desk clerk not concerned with suspicious guest reported---did not feel safe. Poor value for money.

Close to center town

Posted May 12, 2014
Pros: Good security, updated bathroom, plenty of hot water.
Cons: Halls and room walls need updating.
Location: Close to Classic Center.
Better than I expected. Fine for a short stay. Halls and rooms need updating. more than adequate breakfast buffet.

What a dump!

Posted Mar 30, 2014
This place was a complete dump. The door to get in the building was propped open by old carpeting our entire stay. There was garbage in the hallway the entire time regardless of the time of day. There was a hotel "guard" or staff sitting on a computer chair in the hall 24-7 for no apparent reason across from our room. Essentially was outside our door. The walls were paper thin so it was loud in our room. The decor in the room was drab, colors didn't match. The bathroom was spotless though. For $100/night outside of the downtown area? No thanks! Better off sleeping on the sidewalk for free. This is what I'd expect for $40/night...

Should Be Torn Down and nor Rebuilt

Posted Mar 23, 2014
Obviously a very old motel and does the Howard Johnson name a disservice. It's in a high crime area and safety is a concern.

Old worn out hotel

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: Not much
Cons: Almost everything.
Room was dated and very worn. At almost $100 per night in Athens it was a terrible deal. Couldn't use the internet the first night we got there.

Just ok

Posted Mar 2, 2014
The bedspread was dirty and stained and the fridge was old and rusty.
