Pros: Everything! The price was jus right for the value added.
Cons: N/a
Location: Shopping and various eateries within walking and driving distance fr hotel
Totally impressed by the staff, management & owner of this hotel. Our stay was nothing but the best during our time in Athens. Everyone was courteous & friendly. Loved the complimentary breakfast and Kerri who whipped it up each morning. Not only did she cook for us but she spent the time talking all guests in the dining area and made us laugh! Also loved the fitness room and the jacuzzi!!!

Everyone was very cordial and accommodating. The employees explained everything to us and gave us directions to our destinations. They gave us good reviews regarding the winery and its restaurant. Gave us a welcome package of goodies since it was out first visit to the hotel and Athens.

Pros: Staff
Cons: Breakfast items
The hotel staff is very professional and knows what the customer wants. Pleasant atmosphere. The staff offered snacks and beer with no charges (some kind of Manager 1st day party going on). The only thing to work on is the breakfast items. Make it more exciting for customers.

This hotel is fine. I had a really gross cleanliness problem with my original room, the woman at the front desk apologized and gave me a new room. Complimentary beer, wine and snacks each evening.

Nice hotel near Lake Athens

Friendly and helpful staff at a hotel that was conveniently located for us during our stay. It was near lots of restaurants, shopping, gas and a movie theater. The hotel was nice, but you could tell there were some areas that were starting to look a little run down. Our room seemed to be lacking some type of additional seating lIke a chair and footstool. Overall, it was clean and comfortable with great staff.

Pros: I liked everything about the hotel and do hope to stay there again.
Location: The reason we were there was to go the First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX and it was only 30 minutes away from there.
The room was large, clean and comfortable. Just wish we could have enjoyed it for a longer period of time, but got there late and left early. Call about a late check-in and staff was wonderful. The breakfast and coffee was wonderful and love the cinnamon rolls.

Decent hotel but no housekeeping

We were pleasantly surprised at the location and condition of the hotel. The front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. After a long day out, we came back to our room to find it had not been visited by housekeeping. We had no clean towels. We called the front desk and were told that it would be a little longer for washcloths because they were in the dryer.
