As others have noted... getting there is a bit tricky, if not downright dangerous (depending on which direction you are coming from)... we followed what Google Maps said to do and though it takes you through a residential section, you understand why once you arrive - exiting is equally as tricky. Location is OK for campus access, depending which part...

I stayed here one night. No significant criticism except for the dangerous entrance to the main road. There is a sign in the middle of the entrance road that says no left turn. When I drove in the sign had been knocked over by a car. I hit the sign and it cut my tire. One tow truck and &180.00...

Didn't have a good feeling when we arrived at this property, the roads around it are in need of repair and its entrance and carpark were not welcoming. Inside the reception area this has obviously been upgraded so I started to feel a bit better. Checkin was smooth and the room was a bit of a trek away in the...

This Courtyard is in a good location near the University and a number of restaurants we frequent when visiting our daughter in Athens. The rooms are OK, not great, and the hotel overall is in need of renovation. Beds are not as comfortable as at other Marriott properties, bathrooms are fine but very small. Not enough plugs for electronics but...

We have stayed here three times, mainly because of the convenience to downtown and UGA. The first two times, we had rooms on the bottom floor. I wouldn't recommend the bottom floor rooms. It feels like a basement, and the halls are unusually dark and cramped. One room in particular had a definite musty odor. The last visit, we had...

My brother attends college at UGA, which means I am in the area quite a bit visiting him. I have stayed here on a total of three occasions, my most recent being the best by far.

We have stayed here a couple of times while visiting Athens during the college tour and orientation process. I'm sure we will be staying many more nights in the next 4 years here as well! Hotel lobby is totally redone, beautiful and clean. The rooms are nice as well, not quite as updated but pleasant. Staff is friendly and helpful....

Good location for UGA. Lots of camps - football, cheer and dance. We had to park along the side of the hotel and access was not readily apparent. Hotel seemed louder than most, although we had a room away from the campers, we still had a good bit of noise from hallway and other rooms. The hotel is pretty much...

Room was dated, very average. Staff was great, allowed us a very early check-in on arrival. Property is good. All in all, worth the rate, but don't expect too much. The pool looked very good, and the lobby nice. AC unit was very loud, that was a poor deal.
