Stayed for 2 nights for my sons graduation. They accommodated me coming in late with my daughter coming in early.

The negatives are poor WiFi. Very slow and drops out. Breakfast is the usual fare. The room was comfortable, small for king size but large enough. Bathroom very small but adequate.

This hotel has some miles on it, however, is clean and well run. Unlike many hotels that age, this property has been kept up. Nicely appointed rooms with enough spots to charge your stuff, a mini fridge and coffee maker. Staff is superb - attentive and friendly. Great location and you can easily walk downtown. Plenty of parking (free). Worth... More

The location is very convient to the UGA campus which is what we were looking for. Also within walking distance to lots of cafes.

I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance (about 1/2 mile) of both UGA and the Classic Center and offered free parking. Yes, it is an older hotel with small bathrooms, but the carpet was new and everything was very clean. The staff was quite friendly - even the man vacuuming the hall had a smile and a... More
