                    Our room was far away from front desk on bottom floor Very noisy Kids slamming door at 6:00 AM and coming in late slamming doors. Long walk from desk

                    Staff nice

                    I liked the location. The bar needs to stay open later.

                    I would have liked it better if the beds were two queens instead of two full beds. The bathroom was way to small.

                    Nice staff up front. Nice lobby area. Quiet.

                    Our room could have been cleaner. Something brown looking was on bathroom wall by trash can. Sink was cracked in bathroom. At 200, plus fees, I expect better. I am not a picky picky traveler, so this is significant for me to complain.

                    New updated furnishings, comfortable mattress and chairs, easy access to internet, hot breakfast, good lighting

                    Window unit for cooling & heating, tiny bathroom, bed covers too heavy for summer weather, pancake machine made hard pancakes and had bad taste, fresh paint odor, on front access to sidewalk

                    The rooms were updated, clean and comfortable.

                    The hallways were tired and run down.

                    The staff was quite friendly and efficient. I left my laptop charger and they mailed it to me the next day. I've done similar at higher end hotels and items I left behind were simply gone. What a refreshing change. The breakfast was very good and the options numerous. I will stay there anytime I go to athens.

                    I stayed there because I prefer to stay in places where I can smoke in my room. The facility was fine. Very nice workers and clean.

                    I don't understand why the smoking rooms have to be in rooms that seem to be rarely updated. It would also be great if one could open the windows. It was nice weather and I would have preferred to open a window rather than keep the air on.

                    Handicap access is deplorable. rooms were not really clean. staff sent us to the stairs to go from one floor to another with a wheelchair.

                    Staff was very friendly, breakfast bar was excellent, rooms were clean.

                    The floor plan, location of elevators was really weird. Could not get rolling cart to elevator without pushing up ramps from lobby area to 3rd floor, which is not practical for a 74 year old.

                    I was very impressed with my stay at the hotel. I had no problems the room was nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was awesome, even when they had a problem with the boiler they informed me and advised me to let my water run. I would recommend this hotel to others. I do not have anything negative to say about my stay or about the hotel. I would lilke to thank you for a enjoyable stay

                    Very comfortable beds Friendly staff Delicious breakfast Close to everything we wanted to do

                    My only complaint is that the elevator carpeting should be vacuumed more regularly

                    Location was perfect for me.

                    There was nowhere for me to park my car when I drove back to the hotel later in the evening. I had to park on a street nearby and that was only possible because my friend from Athens knew where I could get free parking. There was one space at the hotel, but someone had parked so badly I couldn't get in it. I found that really frustrating.
