overnight stay on a trip

Pros: The receptionist was polite and helpful even though there was a rush of patrons lined up to check in. The common areas were clean & the grounds neat.
Cons: Room 107 maintenance tasks needed to be taken care of. The shower head pushed in & out of the wall. The wash basin plug did not seal.
Location: Easily accessible from main road. Great Mexican restaurant next door.
Good value for money. The room was clean & comfortable. The beds and other furniture were in good condition. Breakfast was average for the price we paid.

I did not feel safe

Pros: Staff was friendly
Cons: Layout, maintenance to all areas, location is sketchy
Location: Close to the center of Athens
I needed a place to stay for a 3 day conference at the Classic Center, and this hotel was within 5 minutes. The staff was welcoming and helpful. That's about where the good stuff ends. The lobby is tiny and looks like something out of a convenience store, not a hotel. The breakfast area is a joke. No more than 5 people can be in there at a time or they'll be stepping on each other. My room was as clean as it could be, but it was in need of MAJOR updates. The door to my bathroom was missing a piece of paneling, the caulk around the shower was gone, and there were stains everywhere just to name a few. I did not take a shower for my entire stay because I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The carpet was sticky with age and I didn't walk without shoes on in the room. The bed was clean although the bottom sheet was stained near the top edge. I slept on the other side. The curtains in my room had holes in them so I covered them with a piece of paper. Parking was an issue as the hotel was full and there weren't enough spaces. Here's the biggest problem. I was on the ground floor. All of the rooms have sliding glass doors in the back of the room. Mine was steps away from the street! It wasn't even locked when I arrived! I ended up barricading the door with a chair as best I could and hoped that no one tried to break in. If the next nearest hotel wasn't 30 minutes away, I wouldn't have stayed. Never ever again. I was so glad I didn't have my kids with me!

Not somewhere I would stay again

The hotel itself was clean but the comfort level was sub par ...the room was small, stuffy and the air did not work. There was enough moisture in the air of the room that our things were damp the next day. The noise from the plumbing was loud and could be heard continuously through out the night. Clean, but not worth the 100$. I did try to have the air checked on, but the desk clerk stated that no repairman could be contacted, nor could they switch us to another room. Dismal night. Will not stay here again.

C the ChangeS : )

Pros: Up graded material conditions of the faculity over the past few years.
Cons: towel size
Location: Creature Comforts tour, Butt Hutt BBQ,
over the past 24 months my sons and I have stayed here several times. The breakfast meets the requirements, enjoyable pool. The rooms are much more presentable with fresh tile carpet and furnishings. Good JOB.

Inexpensive and comfortable

For the price, this is a great place. The room was comfortable and clean. No problems. The AM breakfast was of course skimpy, but the lobby coffee maker grinds coffee on demand, and so the coffee is very fresh. There was also a coffee maker in the room. Did not try out the swimming pool. At this rate, I would certainly stay here again.

The hotel was dated but staff was great.

Cons: Poor breakfast
The room (2 dbl beds) was very cramped. The AC unit blew directly on one of the beds the entire time. sliding door had a modified door lock because the original was broken. bathroom had been remodeled, but was very small with no vanity. staff was very friendly and willing to give extra towels. pillows on bed very flat and you only get one of them. the "free" breakfast wasn't worth it. the only warm food was frozen waffles in a toaster, instant oatmeal, or frozen sausage bisquits in the microwave. OJ was out the two days we were there, apply juice had "things" floating in it, coffee was ok (only powdered cream), and it costs extra for hot chocolate. Wont stay here again, but probably ok if traveling alone. Location was convienent to food, shopping.

The hotel wasn't the nicest, but it was great for a last minute trip to a Georgia game.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
The hotel wasn't the cleanest, or the nicest. The beds weren't comfortable and some of the towels looked dirty. But it was fine just for the night and a last minute trip to the Georgia game. The staff was very friendly though.
