MUCH better than I thought it would be

Posted Dec 11, 2017
Pros: Great bed.
Cons: Better towels.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a very clean, recently renovated room, with a GREAT bed. I was also leery that the non-smoking room might have a smoky odor from previous guests that may have "cheated," but it was completely smoke odor free. Staff was quite friendly.

Dirty, run-down hotel

Posted Nov 26, 2017
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: sketchy area with people walking around late at night making for a nervous check-in in the dark.
The front desk staff member who checked me in continually coughed and all over the desk, the key card, my drivers license and toward me without covering her mouth. The first room I went to had no working lights. I was sent to a second room and the key card would not work. The third room was filthy and the AC unit sounded like a jet engine. The fridge ran so loudly I had to unplug it and the one electrical outlet next to the bed did not work. The walls are so thin that you can hear everyone around you. Terrible stay, will never return.

The stay was good overall. Good hot shower that I could actually stand under. Bed was comfy. Not hardly any outside noise. My only complaint would be that the a/c was off in the room and it was really hot on arrival. This wouldn't be a complaint had I just dropped in off of the highway, but the room was through a reservation paid in full. Looks like they could have at least turned the a /c on.

Thank you very much for staying with us, and for taking the time to share your comments in regards to your recent stay at the Super 8 of Athens, Texas. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. I do apologize for the inconvenience of walking into a hot room. We try to conserve energy as best as we can, and even though the room was prepaid in full, we have had guest not arrive. However, I will work with my staff to set a scheduled time to turn on and turn off units prior to arrival in the evenings. Thank you again, and we look forward to serving you again.

No more breakfast

This used to be my favorite place to stay when visiting Athens. I will not be going back. There's no continental breakfast anymore.
