Come stay at our hotel and see what East Texas hospitality is all about. It is our goal to provide you with comfortable, welcoming surroundings and exemplary service to ensure a stress-free stay. Visitors appreciate our convenient location on TX-31 in Athens's newest business district, which is just one mile from downtown. With Lake Athens, Cedar Creek Lake just a short drive away, our property provides easy access to a wealth of outdoor activities. (Currently our pool is under renovation. In order to provide a better experience for our guests we are updating several areas of the hotel. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will have the pool area available as soon as possible.)
