as advertised the hotel has three different types of rooms. They have tower rooms, pool rooms and other rooms which are a bit old. At first the hotel is a jumble to figure out, but we quickly got the hang of it. The staff were super nice and went out of their way to be helpful. For example I needed a few copies and the front desk staff made them with problem or cost. The pool was a really cold, so we spent most of our time in the hot tub instead. Looked like a lot of remodeling going on. Right next to downtown Athens and UGA. We didn't mind our room because we got a great rate, but I can see other people being a little shocked by the differences between the rooms (tower rooms are nicer).
