I had traveled to Athens to attend the Georgia spring football game with friends. Walking aimlessly looking for a restaurant, we were stopped by a young lady named Alyssa. She, out of the goodness of her heart, took time out of her schedule to help up find a restaurant. Came to find out, she worked at the Hilton Garden. She...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

My daughter and I stayed here on a recent college visit to UGA. I selected the hotel primarily based upon location. For this price point the hotel was absolutely a perfect fit. Checkin/checkout was a breeze. Warm, professional and helpful staff who were very accomodating on a schedule switch with just a couple hours notice. Checkout just required a quick...

Terribly run down hotel and definitely NOT worth the rate. Athens has limited options but so far this hotel has been our worst experience. If you don't mind old he location of this property is good. Only positive comment I am able to make

This hotel is located in downtown Athens where you can walk to restaurants, shops and activities. Located next to the university, you can stroll on campus as well. The staff is very friendly. All rooms were very clean and our experience was amazing. Highly recommend the penthouse suite to double as hospitality suite when needed.

A solid downtown property, within an easy walk to Athens bar scene and the U GA campus. There is a parking garage, which is much needed by guests because there is no other practical way to get there. Note that they charge $10/day for the parking privilege. BTW, the check-in, garage entrance, bus parking, etc. area can be a zoo,...

This hotel is centrally located and is great if you want to be 'downtown'. The staff are friendly and helpful at a level way beyond the grade of the hotel and nothing is too much trouble and they always deliver with a friendly smile. The rooms are very 'Hilton' and quite spacious but need a litter brighter decor. The bathrooms...

To get to the reason for my mediocre rating, while using the guest laundry we discovered that hotel staff use the guest laundry (washing machines and dryers) to wash cleaning cloths and mop heads. Who knows what the cleaning cloths had on them, and to was mop heads in a machine used by guests to wash clothes. . .well, it...
