We had a very nice, but small king room while visiting campus for a conference. The shuttle was very convenient and the drivers were kind, intelligent, and helpful. I also used the bus system and once again found that the drivers were helpful and the rare student that wasn't afraid to converse with the "old lady" made sure I found...

We travelled over for the Masters and stayed here and the best thing about the hotel are the staff, they epitomise southern hospitality and charm. Our room was clean and well appointed, with two large and comfortable beds. We didn't dine in but the breakfasts were good and the bar area was very friendly. However there were a couple of...

The tiny room had a weird smell and filthy, peeling wallpaper. There was crusted-on makeup in the sink. The carpets were stained. The pillows are horrible. Worst of all was doing battle with the GIANT COCKAROACH that joined me in my 4th floor room. So Gross and I didn't sleep well again and left one night early. This is a...

The student staff behind the front desk, including the fiery assistant who was able to get me a room, were great! Very friendly, and she (the red-headed staff assistant) remembered my name (And I really wish I could remember hers. VERY POLITE!) So the room was small. VERY small, including the bathroom. 2 grown adult men were sharing this room,...

We stayed at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel while in town for a concert. The students working at the front desk and bell stand were very helpful and accommodating. The room is very small, but it was clean, and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Location is decent - we walked downtown, about a mile away....

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. The bed was amazing, but the bathroom was to small for one person and there was little to no water pressure in the sink. There were problems flushing the toilet through out the hotel and the room needed serious upgrades. The shower water pressure was nice, but the...

The staff is excellent, but the hotel needs strong renovations. The walls are extremely thin and we were up most of the night listening to the "roomies" next door. The water in the bathroom is extremely hard to control and the halls did have a musty old smelling odor. Awesome location though and would stay here for a decent rate,...

This was our first visit and it didn't disappoint. The room was clean, comfortable and stylish. The staff was extremely helpful as well. We were in Athens for an event at UGA and the location was perfect. We will definitely stay there again in the future.
