Stained sheets. Bathroom nasty. Dead bugs in tub and sink. Would have been a perfect stay if not for cleanliness issues.

The manager was awesome and started our stay pleasantly. It only got better from there. We are investigating staying there for all the home football games next season!

disliked being hit with an upcharge to stay in the tower section where I felt safer. no bar or cafe if you need things in the evening, other than a basic pantry of goods. breakfast was ultra basic, truly a utilitarian hotel only with no particular character if that is what you seek

Hi Susana- thanks for your review, hope you enjoyed staying in the interior tower! Sorry to hear that our amenities did not fit your needs and that our free hot breakfast did not have enough options.

Nice hotel offering all amenities wanted. I would definitely stay again.

HEED THE WARNINGS--AVOID COMPLETELY

First of all, Travelocity did a bait and switch with the rate. The room was advertised as $61 which is the only reason I chose it. Now I find I have been charged 158.16. The hotel itself was supposedly providing me with a non-smoking room, but there was a strong cigarette smell in the room. They were unable to move me because they were full. Then, I find a cigarette burn on my sheet which makes me think the sheets weren't cleaned since the last guest. Then, there was loud music from another room coming through that was impossible to sleep through even with a loud fan and ear plugs. The management did nothing to try to quiet them. The man on duty wanted to come into my room to see about the sound, as if he did not believe me, and then did not want to knock on anyone's door to tell them to be quiet because it would wake them up, even though I (also a guest) was not able to sleep with their noise. I had to go downstairs myself to knock on the door and could not get anyone to come to the door to be quiet. After 1 1/2 hours of trying to get management to quiet them, I had to check out to sleep elsewhere. The hotel refuses to refund more than $67 PLUS they charged me $50 for 'incidentals'. They refunded this but I had no idea I would be charged $50 and for what I don't know. Travelocity is also refusing to help with this. I will never use Travelocity again. Even if this room WAS 158, which it wasn't, get a better room elsewhere for that! BEWARE!

Great for a quick place to stay for UGA football

They are 'under construction' making it difficult to get to the office from the rooms but rooms were clean, comfortable and perfect for a quick night stay on the eve of a home game.
