Nice room, very clean and comfortable. Entire property was maintained nicely, good pool area. Staff was very friendly and the complimentary continental breakfast had a good spread. Bagels, waffles, danishes, coffee etc. Would definitely stay here again.

I've stayed twice at this Howard Johnson, both times because of interviewing for a job in Athens. I felt safe and comfortable, and liked how although it's not the Ritz, the rooms are updated and have some bright colors that make them feel modern. Staff is friendly and breakfast facility was perfect. The bed was very very comfortable!

Although this is an older hotel, it's roughly half the price of others in the area and it's clean. Staff, especially Lala that check us in, was probably the nicest person I have ever dealt with in a hotel. It's close to UGA, clean, friendly people and a great price.

My stay at this hotel was just fine. No complaints at all. Breakfast at check-out this morning was however very disturbing to say the least. I'm Caucasian and I was offended. Another 2 guests were openly talking about the police shootings and degrading black people, definitely loud enough for anyone to hear. The hotel receptionist is black, nice young lady....
