    Exceptional

    Location was excellent. Staff was nice and helpful.

    Did not receive enough breakfast coupons for the number of persons booked per room per night. That was not explained when booked. We had to pay for breakfast one morning due to four persons in a room. Booking only allowed for two person per room per night.

    Exceptional

    We had two rooms. Both were very clean and comfortable.

    Elevator call buttons did not work from the room floor; no sign so indicating so we ended up taking the stairs down one floor to catch the elevator.

    Location was primarily the reason for booking this hotel. Was recommended by a friend from Athens.

    Superb

    Great room! Clean and comfy.

    The restaurant on site seemed abandoned. We went for dinner and felt almost as if we were intruding or weren't supposed to be there.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The room was large and comfortable. Location of hotel in Athens was convenient to UGA and downtown restaurants.

    There was a leak from under the tub that caused the carpet to get wet right outside the bathroom door. Breakfast buffet could have been better. Food was not fresh, and there were empty items in the buffet that the staff took over 15 minutes to replenish.

    Proximity to campus/ downtown

    There were nail clippings next to the bed and it took half the day for someone to come clean the room and it still wasn't cleaned to my satisfaction so I just dealt with it !
