The hotel was excellent. My daughter and I were in Athens for a swim meet and the hotel is in a great location for UGA events. We easily walked downtown and found are way around town. The front desk was very helpful with maps and suggestions. We will definitely stay again!

We stayed at The Graduate during a college visit to Athens and loved our stay. The lobby and rooms have a cozy feel to them and are decorated in a 1950's theme yet the hotel has all modern upgrades. Yes, the old radio and phone in the rooms actually work. We traveled with our dog and the hotel was pet...

Wonderful retro decor and unique event facility layout including coffee shop in the main lobby made for a memorable experience. It is within walking distance of restaurants, and the UGA campus, not to mention only a block away from my student's housing. I intend to return when the opportunity arises!

Excellent accommodation for spending NYE at their venue. This is a motel setting, which is why sleep quality is only average. Revelers were in the halls until early in the morning. I'll be back in the fall to cheer on my Bulldogs!

The bed at the Hampton Inn I stayed at the night before was more plush and comfortable than the bed here. The bathroom had some mold/mildew, and there was a strange smell in the room. Also, the heater wasn't working. Overall, not too impressed given it's a 4-star hotel.

The room and service were excellent. Having the coffee house and bar and grill on site was wonderful, as was the music the last night we were there.

It's a rehabbed old motel connected to an old Foundry. The dedication and level of detail in the furnishing and decoration is astonishing. The location is very close to all of the greatness of Athens. We didn't try them but it looked like they had bikes available to use or maybe rent. Downtown us also easily walkable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Graduate Athens - where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. We are located a short walk from the UGA campus and downtown Athens. Whether you're dropping in for a show at the Foundry, our multi-tiered music venue, or in town showing off the Alma Mater, our warm, friendly whip smart staff will be your compass guide - so you can feel like a local, even if it's your first time in town. Get ready for a night like you've never had before. Get ready to be inspired. Here at Graduate Athens, we believe life is a timeless journey filled with memory making stops, extraordinary rites of passage and all of the courageous leaps of faith that get us where we're going. Just beyond the historic brick facade lies our very own Southern village. While Graduate tips a hand to its historic roots, it has fully embraced the southern Renaissance in all of its artistic edge and glory. Everything you need is right here-whether you're in town to wind up or unwind. Our rooms are ready for a night like you've never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner including Malin & Goetz amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel lobby is caffeinated with just the right blend of grab and go goodness. Think home baked eats and a selection of the best brews. We've got just the right shot of espresso to pair with your morning news at Iron Works Coffee. The Foundry, our historic music venue served as the original iron foundry, and was reimagined to honor the site's roots and preserve this piece of Athens' fine past. The multi-tiered structure and soaring beams welcome crystal clear views, stellar acoustics and a place to celebrate the detail and dedication to craft. The Foundry Bar & Grill stocks every local beer imaginable and offers fun fresh fare whether you are catching a new artist or you're just looking for a place in town to hang out and make some history of your own. At Graduate we are all about the R&R and making your acquaintance. Melt away your stress, unplug from the world and indulge in a few hours of off the grid me time. Let us know which spa service serves you best, and we can make it happen. ... more   less
