We had a very nice clean room and the breakfast before driving the next day was excellent. We have stayed at Best Western before, but the quality of this hotel and its staff was outstanding. Very convenient for a bite to eat the night we arrived.

This hotel is one of the best EVER in the family affordable category of hotels! It's been a while since I stayed at a Best Western, but we were tired of driving, needed a hotel that was pet friendly, & this one got good reviews. All they had left was a room with two doubles, but we took it. I...

Getting older, my travel days are shortening (just not the endurance anymore). Given what I do when I travel (I hike, walk, visit museums, go to national parks and state parks and do a lot of avoiding cities) This was a good stopping point for me in both directions of the trip. Convenient to the exit from I65, convenient to...

This hotel was what we were expecting for a stop over at the half way point of our trip...nothing fancy, but clean and located near good restaurants. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was good. If we ever go through Athens, AL again and need a place to stay, we would certainly stay here.

Maintenance man entered room without knocking while wife was dressing. No electric outlet at work desk. Breakfast was so-so, parking for car w/trailer is not so good about 300 yards from room. Might train the night clerk in expressing friendly personality.
