Everything was perfect besides the elevator make sure to take the stairs
The elevator was terrifying and hot
Beds were comfortable. Free parking. Pool. A/C worked great. It was quiet.
Need more than 3 towels for two queen beds room. Check in was earlier than we arrived but yet our room was not ready when we arrived.
The room was comfortable and clean. The rate was good.
Our room was supposed to be a 2nd floor room, but it was below the first floor. In order to use a luggage cart, you had to go up a ramp to the 3rd floor and take the elevator down.
Good breakfast. Comfy bed and pillows. Nice landscaping.
Thin walls woke us up each night with loud people on the hallway. Called the front desk who sent security and took care of it promptly.
The gym and pool
Breakfast to me was short of a good complete breakfast
Walking distance (3 minutes) from the university campus and downtown.
Bed was comfortable
Lots of kids in the hotel making a lot of noise
Staff did not know where the dog walks were. Breakfast was OK
I loved the pillows no-one knew what kind they were I would love to buy them I didn't have neck pain when I got up
Breakfast was tasty and truly a selection (not the typical one piece of toast and a doughnut). Staff was friendly and helpful. Facility needs a little TLC, but was being worked by maintenance crew.
Although adequate parking, the parking lot is not well designed and crowds easily due to no check-in lane.
We enjoyed every aspect of the hotel. The staff was friendly and courteous. The food was good It was a very pleasant experience.
The breakfast. Lots of choices but standard free breakfast
The bed was nice
Trash on the elevator floors. Poorly lit bathroom. No fan in the bathroom (working)
Beds are comfortable. Breakfast was also very good. Staff was beyond accommodating...they were terrific! It should be known that this hotel should be assigned a designated "NO drive" just drink responsibly establishment. It literally is less than a half a mile to your favorite watering hole in downtown Athens...It was a graduating weekend and with the Twilight Race going on, the hotel was packed and ready for us all.
I know the beginning of May must be pre-season but it is my opinion that the pool, designating smoking, pet walk area should be maintained as well as the rest of the outdoor property.
