My daughter and I stayed here two nights in early December for MidFest. Hotel is new, modern, and clean. It was a 5 minute drive from everywhere we needed to be that weekend. Breakfast buffet was good. King room and bathroom were small, but had everything we needed including a small fridge and microwave. Would recommend to others.

We chose this location to attend a basketball game at UGA. It was a perfect location to walk to the game and not have to get in traffic. The hotel was very clean and updated. The staff at the front desk and breakfast area were extremely nice. The parking lot was very well lit. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Athens.

I visited the hotel in July and was pleasantly surprised by how fresh and new this hotel felt. The staff was very helpful during my stay and the general manager pleasantly greeted in the the morning during breakfast. If you stay, you must try out the pancake machine they have. It is the most amazing piece of breakfast equipment I have ever seen. I would not be surprised if it were designed by NASA.

Check in was great! The room is very clean and spacious. I really enjoyed my staff. Staff was very nice and breakfast okay. I didn’t like that the rooms were not close to the parking area. I was on the Top floor- 5th. If you have limitations, please let them know when you book the room.
