    The elevator was terrifying and hot

    Very good

    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.

    Fabulous

    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.

    Superb

    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.

    Superb

    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.

    Fabulous

    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.
