For several years I have stayed at Best Western when traveling to Athens. In fact, it is a regular stop for me. The staff are very polite, manner-able, and best of all they remember your name when you show back up. The beds/rooms are clean, internet is great, and within good walking distance to the many amenities downtown and even...

Rooms were clean, and comfortable, the construction on expansion made getting to the breakfast a little difficult, I had my 91 year old mother-in-law with us and going up Reese st with a walker in traffic was a accident waiting to happen.

Lets start with the good -- location, convenient to 'downtown' Athens, walking distance to restaurants and moderately priced by Athens standards. Clean room, and a fantastic breakfast - by far the best 'free' breakfast ever from a chain motel -- besides eggs and 'make your own pancakes', a yogurt bar with fresh fruit, granola and all manner of toppings. Plus...

This is a motel, not the hotel pictured as opening Spring 2016. The new addition looks nowhere near complete. The construction requires guests to check in, then drive down a hill and around to get to the parking lot. At night, the walk is dangerous because of holes in the roadway, etc. There is a 4" - 5" step up...

In a city that never sleeps because the college kids won't stop making a racket, this hotel is located in one of the least noisy parts of downtown. Lobby staff is always there and ready to help and will gladly tell you the best places to eat or best bars to go get wasted at. What's more is they have...

We stayed here for one night on the way to Florida and we're very pleased with the room upgrades as well as the price. The shower head height was even adjustable! The breakfast was good with hot and cold options. Would definitely stay again.

over-priced, had to ask for amenities such as shampoo and towels. The room was worn. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Athens. There are much nicer places with much better prices. around town.

Dear Guest, I am very sorry to hear that your rooms were not properly prepared during your stay. Guest of Best Western's should not have to ask for amenities as they should already be provided by housekeeping to our new guests. I will pass along your feedback to the appropriate staff to make the necessary adjustments. Thank you for bringing...

The hotel is surrounded by Pre-Civil War Antebellum homes which now serve as boutique shops, as well as UGA sorority and fraternity houses. Conveniently located less than a mile away, you will find the Athens Downtown shopping area which includes musical night life, and award winning restaurants. For passing travelers, the Best Western motel is conveniently located located near 441 North and South, with a staff ready to assist with any traveling questions.
