Good value for the price but our room was very noisy between street noise and loud neighbors.

Athens GA hotel during Hurricane Irma

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Pros: Front desk area very nice.
Cons: The carpets seemed worn and outdated.
Location: Near University. Limited dining opportunities on Sunday.
Although our room was not ready for us until 5:30pm, the front desk staff cordially offered us a complimentary drink since we had to wait so long. The little refrigerators in the room did not work well and the freezer area did not work at all. Unfortunately we were there during the weekend and their dining area was CLOSED Sunday and Monday! In our bed, a black bug ran out and onto the floor but the carpet was so dark I couldn't find it! We attempted to extend our stay for one additional night and were told that we could do so but would need to evacuate the room and stay out from 11 am to 4pm - the time that the majority of Irma's weather was hitting the area. Due to this we opted to cancel our extension and leave town.

Great retro vibe and close to everything

Posted Sep 11, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Location, comfort and nightlife
Location: They have a place called "The Foundy" on-site which has a large stage and live music. Also close walk to town for shopping, dining and drinking.
This place was perfect for our family (2 adults/2 kids). Great venue on location for live music and craft beer on tap!

Great Stay, well recommended

The Graduate was awesome!! We went during a game day weekend and there was a band playing from 3-5 pm, the coffee shop was great, and the decor inside our room was so cool! We walked from the hotel to downtown several times, easy walking distance for young adults.

Great hotel with funky designed rooms!

Posted Sep 5, 2017
Pros: The fresh and funky design.
Cons: General upkeep of the rooms - showing some wear and tear on the wallpaper and walls.
Location: Close to UGA and downtown Athens.
Positioned in a nice area within walking distance to downtown Athens and to Sanford Stadium. Design of the common areas is funky, fun and interesting. The rooms are also well done with the cool "school" related composition books for the directory, retro corded phones, "studying do not disturb" pennants on the doors and a mix of plaids on the upholstery and blankets. A very fresh feel compared to other hotels. I am sure this hotel gets lots of use during football season, so management needs to pay close attention to the rooms and keep them in tip top shape. We had a couple of small issues (roller blind off track, toilet paper holder fell off the wall, air conditioner frozen) but eveything was taken care of that day. Overall, we loved it and will try to stay here again!

Overall it is a very quaint hotel in Athens. The room smelled a bit musty but I have yet to find a hotel in the area does not have that odor due to the wall air conditioners and the climate. The staff was very friendly and our dog stayed with us one night and they gave us a complimentary bark box which was cute. It is not far from downtown but they do offer a shuttle service if you do not want to walk.
