They're under construction but that didn't bother me since the rooms aren't under construction. It's a new building they're erecting. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the service was impeccable

5 Star. The rooms were clean, smelled good to. The beds were fresh and cozy. There were some work being done on the place but nothing that got in our way. The only issue we did have was with the parking. Had to walk so far to get to and from the room. The staff was nice. I would consider...

I am basing this review solely off customer service from the manager, Tripp. There was a booking mishap between hotels.com and Best Western. Tripp called me and attempted to rectify the situation. We went back and forth a few times but ultimately he upheld and compensated us for the mix up. We ultimately had to cancel our reservation due to...

The room was between shabby and sordid ( a heavily stained armchair and chipped paint everywhere). The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was adequate. The staff were friendly. As you have to walk to the street and up the hill to have breakfast a shortcut from the motel to the front desk would be very helpful, especially in bad weather.

Part of the hotel is under construction. A new tower is being built where it appeared the pool and other amenities used to be. The rooms were about a block away from the office. We were greeted by an unfriendly person who asked us nothing. After putting all of our luggage into our room, we found that the toilet did...

Nothing like spending $499 a night in a soon-to-be demolished filthy, outdated dump of a hotel room. Best Western should be ashamed of themselves. This may do it for me as far as the brand is concerned. I get that chains jack up the price for football weekends but this is just wrong. They have clearly just let this place...

Got a room at the last minute for UGA game. Knew it was a motel and was alright with that. Room had an odor, but not too bad. Obviously renovated recently which was nice. Walking around the property due to construction is not great, but understandable. There are nicer places in Athens, but the this was good for the price.

We recently stayed at the best western hotel in Athens, Georgia, on our way to Navarre, Florida. Hotel rooms were at a premium due to the hurricane in Florida. Our room was newly refurbished, clean and comfortable. The price was more than fair and the employees could not have been nicer. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast the next morning. We...

We could not make it to our reservations at the Hotel this past weekend due to Hurricane Matthew. We had sudden plan changes as the Hurricane hit due to family, etc. We called recently because we were charged for 2 nights. When we called we were told "Well we have to make our money." Seriously? We get that but when...

The rooms smelled of mildew. Some type of fly was in all our rooms. Cable TV didn't work properly. Water leaking from toilet and bugs in it. Sketchy neighborhood. Don't recommend at all. Staff was very professional. Didn't try their breakfast but it is included.

The hotel is surrounded by Pre-Civil War Antebellum homes which now serve as boutique shops, as well as UGA sorority and fraternity houses. Conveniently located less than a mile away, you will find the Athens Downtown shopping area which includes musical night life, and award winning restaurants. For passing travelers, the Best Western motel is conveniently located located near 441 North and South, with a staff ready to assist with any traveling questions. Make sure to stop by the world-famous Varsity Restaurant located right across the street! Best Western Athens is pleased to announce that we are now under construction on our new tower that will sit just off of historic Milledge Avenue. With this project, we will become a Best Western Plus upon completion. In the tower, we will be adding 55 guest rooms that will be interior corridor and 100% smoke free. All guests will have access to a hot complimentary breakfast every morning- next to this breakfast area will be meeting space that can host all kinds of events from wedding parties to business meetings. Guests will also have access to a 600 square foot workout facility as well as a spa to relax in during their free time. All rooms come with free Wi-Fi of course, and access to a business center that can be utilized to print documents if necessary. The future looks bright for us here at Best Western Athens! ... more   less
