Close to a lot of things downtown

Posted Nov 28, 2016
Pros: Close to everything
We were there to visit the UGA campus. Got to see a lot of things in close proximity and the hotel was nice. Very good breakfast.

Nice stay

Posted Oct 15, 2016
Cons: There were several places in the hall ways that needed updating and repair.
The hotel room was very clean, but small. It is close to all the fun downtown. The step up of the hotel is a little strange (lobby is on the second floor) and the parking can be a tad finicky. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Room was not convenient and not in the best overall condition. Seemed dated. Breakfast was good. I don't feel that our room request was accommodated--my daughter was on crutches and we wanted to be close to an elevator---we had to walk quite a ways and take an elevator down to bottom floor from lobby to get to room.

Nice hotel close to downtown Athens!

Posted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
Convenient location, nice staff, comfy pillows. We enjoyed the pool as well, although I would suggest bringing a cushion or extra towels because the pool chairs were not comfortable to lay on at all!
