I was here for a wedding. After driving for 6 hours, the check in was easy and I was able to settle into the pleasant room and the AC was already on full blast - which is a good thing in July, in Georgia! Would stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us. It is always important to have full blast AC in the middle of a Georgia summer. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.

Friendly staff, walking distance to lots of different dining options. No pool but we weren't there that long. College town so stay clear of many of the bars that are plentiful. But for hole in the wall eatery try Eddie's calizone.

Reserved several rooms for a wedding. Nice location in downtown Athens. Within walking distance of UGA arch, numerous restaurants, shops, across the street from the classic center. Very nice staff and nice lobby. Rooms were clean and basically nice.

Convenient location . Nice hotel, comfortable beds, great breakfast. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and staff in restaurant was wonderful. Check in and departure was easy and uneventful. Charging to park is unnecessary. Of course when uga is playing football im sure its a different story.

This is a great location to downtown, you can walk to the University, and all the shops and restaurants! The staff was very nice , especially the bartender who stayed open a little later , as even on a weekend they close at 10pm. There isn't any nightlife here , or a real restaurant , although breakfast is very good...

The two biggest pluses here are the staff and location. This puts you within walking distance to a variety of highly rated restaurants and the university campus. The staff was very helpful with recommendations for dinner. The rooms could probably use a slight update if you're concerned with such details; however, very clean.

This hotel would not be in business but for its location. The rooms smell bad and are coated with spiders. One elevator was broken down for the entire 3 days that we were there. The bar tender leaves a lot to be desired, the pours between customers was amazingly different! Don't know that we will ever go there for an...

The staff is super nice here, but the hotel looks exactly like it did the last two times we visited 4 and 2 years ago, but with more wear and tear. This hotel is in a great location in downtown Athens, but the rooms look and feel like they are 30 years old. Hilton needs to renovate this hotel instead...

This HGI has it together. Despite being in an extremely busy location due to the University of Georgia, the hotel does not skimp on details. Rooms are clean, beds are very comfy, breakfast was perfectly made to order, and the staff was friendly. You can walk across the street for the convention center or walk less than two blocks to...

When I got in the shower, I saw "hair" stuck all over the walls! Hotels aren't known to be sterile places to begin with, but knowing I was in a room that was merely "cosmetically cleaned", and in this case not even an effort to do that, I couldn't sleep the entire night....disgusting!

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. I understand how frustrating it is to encounter cleanliness below your expectations. I apologize for any inconvenience this caused. I will work with my housekeeping department to ensure this is an isolated incident and we are consistent in completely cleaning every room in the future.
