The Varsity Restaurant is right across the street. Best chili cheese hotdogs in town. Construction of the new building is going on. They said they will have a work out room in the new building I think this will be a good addition.

Danni A, thank you for your positive review! You are correct, we will have a workout facility once the building is complete (along with an indoor pool and a spa). We hope next time you're in town, you'll be able to stay in the new building!

Parking because of construction was a little tough - but the staff and the breakfast made up for that. They have a laundry and that was a big plus. Room was clean and pleasant. We used a gift card given to us for multiple stays and got our Harley Discount = WIN/WIN

Thank lange1

Thank you for your positive review of our property, lange1! Our ongoing construction project has caused a few issues that has left some people unhappy, so we're working extra hard on what we can control to provide our guests with a great stay. Give us a call next time you're in town! We can honor your Harley discount again.

I was unaware the hotel was kind of motel style- I'm not sure if that was listed anywhere and I just missed it. The breakfast was the average egg patty, sausage, biscuit, gravy. I had booked multiple rooms and they allowed me to use one AAA card for a discount, unlike the Holiday Inn down the road. It's a $4...

came to visit sister in hospital. Route going to and from hospital and hotel was easy and quick. Room was very clean with no odors. Fortunately,all rooms nonsmoking. Property not that great looking right now, but they are in midst of some new construction and I think they will renovate existing buildings to match the new.

Thank you for your positive commentary about your recent stay with us, Walter W! Being that we are so close to the two hospitals in town (Athens Regional and St. Marys), we try to offer affordable rates for visiting family members. I hope you decide to stay with us in the future, hopefully under more pleasant circumstances!

Second time I have stayed at this Best Western. It is very close to the office I will be working out of. I know that they are very happy that the weather has subsided so the work on the new building can get started. Enjoyed the Sauce House BBQ restaurant that was suggested and was with in walking distance.

We first went to Comfort Inn in Athens due to TA reviews and found it is no longer. So we ended up at BW. Got a great rate. Room was OK - clean, mostly comfortable. Very noisy. We have a fan that we run when we sleep and we still heard stuff over the fan. There are only two stories,...

Signed up and prepaid for a 2 night stay, but was so disappointed in the motel that we told the front desk clerk that we did not want to stay a second night because the room was musty, smelled bad and there were ants in the bathroom. There was loud noise in the parking lot all night long. The desk...

I travel to Athens at least 2 or 3 times a month on business and have been staying at the Best Western Athens for several years.

Hands down worst Best Western property I've experienced. I got in late and left early (thank goodness), but the overwhelming odor of some kind of air freshener kept me awake, so I had plenty of time to take in the dinginess of the room. My bill of nearly $200 felt like a violation.

Thank you for your honest review, Legiope. I'm sorry to hear that your stay was sub-par.

The hotel is surrounded by Pre-Civil War Antebellum homes which now serve as boutique shops, as well as UGA sorority and fraternity houses. Conveniently located less than a mile away, you will find the Athens Downtown shopping area which includes musical night life, and award winning restaurants.
