Good ! Great location ! Clean and comfortable bad.

AC not working well and they want to charge me for parking when it was not showed on the website. They said that charge will be avoid.

Great location, clean rooms, fantastic appetizers in the restaurant!

The breakfast was abominable, they didn’t even have a cappuccino machine and the omelet was fake.

Nice clean hotel near downtown and many good places to eat

Great location. Walking distance to a lot of great restaurants

Clean, comfortable hotel right in downtown Athens, with easy walking distance to all our favorite places.

Just what I was looking for. Close, clean, convenient. A definite step up from the property just down the hill, the express version. An easy stumble home from downtown.

We stayed here one night for a college visit. It did the job.

Convenient location close to UGA campus. Rooms are clean but bathrooms are somewhat dated with no exhaust fans which makes the mirror worthless after a shower. Was somewhat noisy with a number of patrons being inconsiderate in the hallways in the late evening and early morning.

The staff was very friendly, the location was all right, but the mattress in the room was worn out! When you'd lay down on it you rolled into the middle because it had a trench in it! Would think as much as the room cost pernight, they could afford mattresses that were more comfortable.

The stay at the downtown Athens Holiday Inn was wonderful! Courteous staff, prompt room service and tasty food. All that and within walking distance of everything. Thanks for a great trip!

The bathroom had a musty smell and it made me think it was not clean. Location is great and parking is nice to be so one to the campus.

We had a great time this weekend. Enjoyed the room as well as the game. Restaurant locations are within walking distance. Also the hotel restaurant food was very good an moderately priced
