It is just a regular hotel. The rooms are like the ones you have seen a million times. However, these rooms show their age. Being next to a super highway they get heavy use.

We apologize for the inconvenience of staying in a smoking room. We try our hardest to accommodate every guest but that sometimes leaves us with the room that most people do not want. I hope in your future travels you come back this way so we can give you a superior experience.

Shower leaked water, and they didn't clean the roo

Pros: The hotel is located near several sit down restaurants in Athens, a Starbucks, and I-65.
Cons: Get bigger shower curtains, and update the shower head.
Location: Athens has two good fall festivals: Fiddlers' Convention in early October and Storytellers' convention in late October.
I booked this room for some of my out of town band members. They said the beds were comfy, but the shower's water pressure was underwhelming and the shower curtain was too small. Because of the gap by the curtain, water got all over the bathroom floor, and they had to use all their towels to dry it. They left the hotel room the next morning and came to my house for band practice. When they returned late that night, the room hadn't been cleaned, and the towels were still where they left them. They called the front desk, and housekeeping brought them fresh towels. It wasn't awful, but it definitely could have been better.

Caveat Emptor

Pros: Convenient to I-65. Staff was amazing.
I stayed here a week ago in transit to the beach. The room then was great. On the return trip - not so much. A/C was ridiculously loud and when it came on it spewed a toxic smell into the room. To combat that, housekeeping had apparently used a boatload of air freshener. Not sure whether someone peed or vomited into the A/C unit, but dear baby jesus avoid room 121 if you can.

A good hotel with a better price

Pros: It is a clean hotel with friendly staff and a great breakfast.
Cons: I do not know of anything that needs inprovement.
Location: The hotel is located right on a highway making it very easy to locate. There are a good selection of places to eat near the hotel.
I only spent one night and found the hotel to be a good comfortable place. The breakfast was excellent. In the past I have stayed in a higher priced hotel located nearby, but for less money I have found a place equally as comfortable. I have no reservations about recommending this hotel to my friends.
