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.

Verified Reviews of Best Western Athens

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Moderately Okay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Mostly clean and accommodating. Spilled a bit of water on the bathroom tile from my dogs dish and when I wiping it found much dirt where I would be barefoot. C02 alarm chirps every 30 seconds all night and no response from the office by phone. Nothing a pillow over my head couldn't muffle. Overall a decent place to stay and bring your mutt.

"Given a room not cleaned."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Housekeeping nightmare. Night clerk and security guard were cool. Waited only 15 min before presented new room, cleaned and ready. Observed two pickup trucks backed into two handicap spaces by back door. No placard nor plates showing handicapped status. My elderly mother in law had to use walker and walk from 50 ft away to back door. Sad. Very sad.

Overall Score5.0/ 5
Jared and his team welcomed my wife and I and made us feel at home especially after leaving a hotel that did not meet our standards after one night.We left Best Western knowing we had made new friends. When you can check out of a hotel feeling that way, it is a job Well Done. Thank You for your hospitality. We definitely suggest you stay here. The rooms especially ours on the forth floor was EXCELLENT. Thanks again.
