I like the retro 50s theme of the rooms. The rooms are clean and have plenty of space. There's convenient parking in front of your door (ground floor rooms).

Really all around a great experience! Best sleep I’ve had in years. Walking distance to everything including the game. Shuttle service is a plus. Bike rentals a plus. Parking is a little crazy but why drive when you can take a shuttle bus or ride a bike or even walk. Coffee shop, bar and restaurant all on site. Great coffe, pretty good food.

Very nice centrally located college theme hotel

Although centrally located it is tucked back in from a very busy intersection that makes it hard to see/find. Parking is very limited.

Nice location down town Athens

The hotel it's self was exceptional, spent the first 30 mins looking at the interesting art in the room, the restaurant left a not so good an impression, the service and food I would say was fair at best.
