Nice, affordable room. everything seemed pretty clean, Comfy beds and good A/C, quick access to downtown Athens. Super friendly and pleasant staff.
Their building a new building in front of the old. The old building is definitely dated and there are signs of some odd refurbishments over the years. (light-switch plates cut in half to accommodate new wall etc.)
Pretty much nothing. This place is gross. I wasn't expecting a 4 star hotel, but wow, I was really disappointed. It did seem like it was partially under reconstruction, but it looked like exterior work. They need to bulldoze the place and build a new one. I've stayed at Best Westerns before, and they were alright, but I'm never taking a chance on one again.
This place is just gross all around. The room smelled dank and musty. The neon light above the sink was shorting out, and was like a disco strobe-light when I turned it on. So I wasn't able to use the mirror above the sink. When I arrived, the bathmat was on the floor in front of the bath, and it was wet, and dirty. I think when they cleaned the room, they forgot to finish the bathroom.
Beware - construction!
I was dropped off by my daughter so I didn't have a car for the night. Construction required me to walk about 150 yards down a dark, public street to get to my room.
Rooms were very clean and crisp. Staff was very friendly and professional.
