Jacked up the price from $90 a night to $200 a night because of college graduation in town. The hotel is not worth $90 a night.... maybe $49.99. Front desk staff was very friendly....that was the only staff we saw all week-end.

It's been pleasant, but I was here when echols203 stayed. He must have been standing on the public wifi because it's not been good since I've arrived. Maybe they have rooms with individual private wifi that I'm not aware of.

The front desk employee was very nice and familiar with the area. She went beyond my expectations. I will be sure to stay here again when I visit Athens or the surrounding area's. The breakfast was very nice and was served for over 3

The hotel could use some TLC. Things like a door that needed paint and some other simple upkeep would make it much more appealing. For the price, I would expect more. The wifi worked well, but TV reception was not good. The breakfast offerings were limited and the staff was not particularly interested in making guests feel welcome.

I spent one night and was pleased with cleanliness, staff and breakfast. People have such unrealistic expectations. I expect a clean room with nice linens, a flat-screen TV and a lock on the door. The manager was very nice and the breakfast was fine - bagels toasted, butter, cream cheese and juice and coffee. There were other selections like toast,...

Met some interesting characters while staying here. Some staff are very rude (ahem... Sherri), others very pleasant. The hotel is older but was clean, had free breakfast. The TV was newer but static-y and hard to watch. The AC didn't work all the time, nor did the WiFi.
