This was a fantastic place to nest for the night. Our fury friend was welcome and the motor lodge style was convenient for his walks. The grounds caretaker was pleasant and told us he is adding a doggy walk area. He will add a bag post and really appreciated us cleaning up after our Wilbur. The breakfast was top notch...

If you are looking for an overnight place to stay while traveling this is an excellent choice. Although, it is an older style (outdoor entrances) the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the shower-heads are up high, it is fairly quiet, and you get a nice complimentary breakfast to start your day. Be sure to try out the pancake...

Just needed to sleep & recharge. Great price, clean & comfortable. Microwave & fridge. Several restaurants close by. Decent free breakfast. Our first & second choices were sold out and I think we got the last room here. Would recommend it for quick layover or value work lodging as it had everything you needed, including breakfast starting at 5:00 am.

Booked with a coupon from the state Welcome Centre. Beds advertised as "queen" but are smaller than the 60x80 queen size, but bigger than a double. Property itself is OK; two story brick; easy access parking. Seemed a bit pricey considering all the other properties available at that particular I-61 interchange. Bad news with upstairs customers smoking outside on the...

Requested a handicapped accessible room for my elderly father and myself. They were very accommodating. Room was comfortable and quiet for us. Convenient to highway and great midway stop on journey from southern Ohio to Gulf coast of Alabama. Close to several restaurants and even had discounts available at nearby restaurants after showing hotel room card key. Would definitely recommend....

My friends and I chose this hotel on our way to Florida. The reviews were good and the price was right. I did bring my own pillow as was suggested in some reviews I read but wouldn't have needed to. Our room was recently remodeled. Everything was clean, though it was an older hotel. We were on the first floor...

The Best Western Athens is the #1 Best Western we have stayed at over all the others. Joe greeted us upon arriving after our 9 hour drive from FL where cleared out our furnishing from our house there and taking it back to IL to store in a 26' Penske truck. Joe was awesome! Since my wife has a severe...

The check-in process was very smooth. The lady at the front desk was very cordial. The room was the basic BW room. The king size bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The WIFI was great. The only downer was the location. The hotel is right on Route 72, a very busy highway, so you have a bit...

I'm sorry you had an issue with the traffic noise. It can sometimes be busy on the Hwy. When you come this way again ask for a room farther towards the back where it is quieter for you. We want to thank you for taking the time to give us a review on Trio Advisor.

Needed a last minute place to stay when we had to drive into town last minute for a family thing. Started checking prices on TripAdvisor.
