I think the best western was very clean and comfortable. There pancakes are very good, and the staff are friendly. It is also very convenient to restaurants, and there is a gas station next door. The beds are comfy. The bathrooms and showers are clean!

Problems: (1) I asked for a quiet corner room, but the check-in person put me on a hotel wing overlooking a busy street. (2) Occasional moths/insects; keep your room cool so that they move slower so that you can snuff them out. (3) Breakfast sucked--by 9am, you'll find omelets and sausages all gone. (4) Internet was relatively slow--I could NOT...

I had made reservations with a very nice reservationist, and a few requests were made. Reservation was confirmed with special request. When I got there to check in, the person working quoted a higher price. I showed him my printed copy, then he wasn't so pleasant. Lots of construction was going on, but the room was very nice and clean....

I stayed 2 days there and was impressed. Sure from the outside it looked pretty bleak. Once I stepped inside though it was clean and I loved that there was a separate door for the toilet and shower & than another one where the mirror and sink is. The air was cold and the beds were super comfortable. My only...

We stayed overnight for UGA orientation. We reserved a king bed room the day before. When we arrived, they said it wasn't available and we had to get a double room. There is no elevator, we walked up the stairs after a long day. When we entered the room, it reeked of very strong cheap perfume or air freshener, that...

Because of the renovation this Best Western did a very well to keep things clean and in good condition. The continental breakfast was very good. The toasters worked well. There was a variety of types of bread. Juices were cold. This to me is good.

I have stayed in this Hotel many many times during the four years my son was a student at UGA. He graduated in December of 2013 but we make trips back to Athens as often as we can and always stay at Best Western on Milledge Street. It is convenient to everything and we are always treated awesome.
