Very nice hotel. The check in was very quick with a very friendly desk associate. She checked me in quickly and told me of the restaurants in the area that would give me a 10 percent discount by showing my Best Western room card. I had an accessible room, so my room may be very different from a standard room....

The Best Western Athens is the #1 Best Western we have stayed at over all the others. Joe greeted us upon arriving after our 9 hour drive from FL where cleared out our furnishing from our house there and taking it back to IL to store in a 26' Penske truck. Joe was awesome! Since my wife has a severe...

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff does their best to ensure each guest has a pleasant stay with us. Since you were moving back North I assume we hope to see you again in the future if and when you take a trip down South again.

The place was very dirty. One room in our group had hair all over the bed upon arrival. One room had pet urine all over the rugs. The floor was extremely filthy. All of our socks were stained with filth. Overall experience was bad.

Never stay any where else. My husband has had a stroke. We always stay here because he knows his way around. We usually stay on the Hardee's side next to office. Very friendly staff and we fill safe at this location

I stayed here as it is a pet friendly hotel. I was just making a night stop halfway. The hotels rooms are on the outside which made it easy for me to park my car right in front of the room and unload and load. I asked for a room in the front ground floor as these were outside rooms...

Terrific location off the I65! Immediately of the exit. Room was of a good size - well appointed. Lots of restaurants close by. Staff was pleasant and very helpful. Very clean and the bed was comfortable. Would stay again!!

This facility is trying to update but is not there as yet. The room was ok but still a little shabby. We had two rooms and the door wouldn't close on one of them. It took 30 minutes to finally get moved to a different room. There was only one person working and she was very busy. Definitely understaffed. The...

I apologize your stay wasn't pleasant with us. We did fix the issue with the room door that night,door sweep was hung. There are times when only 1 clerk will be on duty due to the low arrivals for the day. The vending machines are serviced weekly , being an exterior property they are selective about what is put in...

This hotel seems to be old and tired, however the beds and bedding were clean and comfortable. Some things had been updated, but it was still tired looking. We stayed here on our way to Destin, Florida. The price was less expensive than the other hotels at that exit.
