Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Best Western Athens

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"UGA hotel with new rooms, hot breakfast, free parking."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This Best Western just opened a new tower [interior corridors] located in the front of the property. The new tower is very clean, spacious and has a pool. The older rooms with exterior corridors are still available as well. **The group could be split between the two buildings** Your rate includes hot breakfast, parking and wi fi. The hotel is right across from The Varsity restaurant and less than a mile from UGA and downtown.
