The Best Western Athens is the #1 Best Western we have stayed at over all the others. Joe greeted us upon arriving after our 9 hour drive from FL where cleared out our furnishing from our house there and taking it back to IL to store in a 26' Penske truck. Joe was awesome! Since my wife has a severe...

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff does their best to ensure each guest has a pleasant stay with us. Since you were moving back North I assume we hope to see you again in the future if and when you take a trip down South again.

The check-in process was very smooth. The lady at the front desk was very cordial. The room was the basic BW room. The king size bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The WIFI was great. The only downer was the location. The hotel is right on Route 72, a very busy highway, so you have a bit...

I'm sorry you had an issue with the traffic noise. It can sometimes be busy on the Hwy. When you come this way again ask for a room farther towards the back where it is quieter for you. We want to thank you for taking the time to give us a review on Trio Advisor.

Needed a last minute place to stay when we had to drive into town last minute for a family thing. Started checking prices on TripAdvisor. Checked out this Best Western based on the price and the star rating. Read a bunch of reviews; decided to give it a try. Showed up that evening to get a room. The price was...

We stayed on our way to florida and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place or nicer people. It is very convenient right off of 65 and walking distance to several restaurants. Also very close to car wash that we desperately needed because we got behind a truck that was putting down brine for some upcoming weather event.

The Best Western Athens Inn had everything we’ve been accustomed to expect from Best Western – a clean, comfortable room, a good, hot breakfast selection and courteous service. We would stay here again if we’re back in the area.

Nice place, friendly employee staff. Would have liked regular pillows not the square ones that are so common now. The beds were awesome. Always enjoy staying at BW as they are pretty consistent with quality of room.

This hotel was as expected. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was very continental. It didn't offer more than the average hotel but was definitively not bottom of the rung. If you are staying in Athens it is worth looking into for a moderately cheap room.

We have become BW fans. Fairly large rooms, very comfortable beds and good breakfasts, convenient to restaurants for lunch dinner. We usually travel with our girl (dog) and BWs are pet friendly even though we didn't take her this time. Best Westetn is the best!

This was the friendliest Best Western we have ever stayed at. The stay was nice and comfortable. I recommend this hotel for quick, over night stays. When traveling that way, I would stay there again. It was actually friendlier than the more expensive hotel we stayed at on the way home.
