This hotel is in a very good location - close to the UGA campus and downtown areas. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. There is plenty of parking. The morning breakfast is wonderful - food is good and there is plenty of seating available. The staff was polite, courteous and helpful. Connecting rooms are available.

Location is extremely ideal for getting around the downtown area of this fun city. Plenty of parking, plenty of options within walking distance of nightlife, food, and shopping. Recommended for first time Athens visitors!

Room 512, tired look, but still fine. The Hall is very casual and a little down, but the staff at the reception provides genuine friendly welcome and an answer to everything. The way to the rooms is a little long, but well assisted by information. Breakfast is quite basic and the tables should be a little cleaner, but there is...

Stopped in Athens for the night to visit with family while traveling through Ga. The location was close to the UGA campus (which was good for us), the room was clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only complaint is that the room was across from the elevator and the noise was less than ideal. Next...

Hotel is located at the end of town at the bottom of a hill. Parking good with plenty of room. Location means the walk up justifies the food and the walk down is easier. We struggled to find a hotel as it is the weekend term ends so we were a bit apprehensive as to why. Check in was easy...

So we paid a lot for this hotel (like $300/night) to be close to graduation festivities. So yes I was not happy when we arrived back to the room and found that housekeeping never showed. We were literally gone all day -from 930 am until after midnight. - and came back to used towels and unmade bed. If you are...

This hotel is old and worn and not very clean. The bath tub had an unidentifiable gunk permanently stuck to the bottom. The bathroom sink would not drain. The bathroom is so small that only one person at a time can get in. The furniture and carpet are worn. The front desk people were very nice and welcoming. For just...

We stayed here as a points stay. I felt we received a good deal for our two night stay - one paid with points and the other a very reasonable rate. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The lobby is large and attractive. The building is older and rather odd & maze like. They have made some updates...

Great stay. Big comfortable bed. Clean rooms. Very conveniently located within walking distance of the downtown bar area. The room has both a mini-fridge and a microwave oven available. The staff was friendly and very accommodating when I requested a late check out. Would definitely stay here again.

Overall the hotel is nice, lobby huge because of included breakfast. Parking lot is AWFUL for a bus. It is just terrible getting in and out. It is a ways from Classic Center. I had my boys staying here. Room wall thin. Problems with other kids knocking on doors. Security handled it though.
