Thank you for taking the time to share with us your rating and comments about your recent stay at our hotel. While you gave us a perfect rating I know from you comments that you experienced a couple of issues during your stay. As we switched from one cable provider to another, we experienced unexpected technical difficulties that impacted our guests experiences; I hope you addressed this with the front desk as they were prepared to make the appropriate adjustments to compensate for this inconvenience, if not, please reach out to us and we would be happy to make those adjustments for you. I apologize for the issue with the bathroom fan, sometimes they run so quietly you do not know that they run 24 hrs. per day. I will have maintenance verify that all are working properly. Thank you for staying with us and I hope we've earned the opportunity to serve you again when you travels bring you back to UGA and Athens to experience a problem free stay. Go dawgs! Bill

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your recent experience at our hotel. I agree that being able to stay on the campus of the University of Georgia is fantastic! While some of our rooms are smaller and offer a better price, we do have available larger rooms and suites for our guests selection. Your reservationist can explain the differences in these room sizes and you can also view the rooms on our website. Thank you again for choosing to stay at our hotel.

Loved everything about the property, except the nightly rate. Super convenient to everything UGA. Was our first Athens game (although it was windy, raining, and cold) and was an absolute blast!!

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your recent experience at our hotel. While the weather did not cooperate, I glad the experience of being on campus for a home football game was an absolute blast. I hope we will have the privilege of hosting you for future game and non game visits to Athens. Go Dawgs! Bill
