Best Western seems to be getting better in the last few years. I remember not thinking so highly of them when I was younger. I travel a lot and have noticed they have been doing extremely well remodeling their rooms all over the country. This one in particular is nice for the level of hotel that Best Western stands. I...

Have stayed at this location for several years and once again had a good nights sleep. The breakfast is well above what you might expect and the Internet worked well. Will continue to look forward to future visits to Athens and the Best Western.

This hotel is under construction which was not revealed on the Internet, so we booked blindly only to be rudely awakened by run down rooms with foul odors and a parking lot full of people drinking out of coolers. Not a safe or pleasant place for your family. I am sure the new hotel will be more representative of the...

We originally made reservations for two rooms at this hotel based on the positive TripAdvisor reviews. When we arrived, we realized it is not a hotel but a motel (all doors on outside of building). It is located in a not-so-great area to start with. Checkin was painless but there is nothing nice about this place - we walked in...

Was average OK! Disappointed in the Rate charged for the room. Way above most BW Properties I stay at. Property is under major expansion and will be nice when finished and even have a pool finally they said! I am a regular at the BW properties when I travel on Business or Pleasure. I also don't think I paid this...

I agree with the reviewer from Watkinsville. This is a Motel with heavy construction going on but that's not even my biggest issue. The location, while very close to downtown, is not very safe. It's in the middle of low income housing and I saw men walking aimlessly around. This is probably the dingiest place I've stayed in since I...

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...

Lovely Hotel. We had a polite greeting from the staff showing they were very kind. Breakfast was wonderful. The rooms were clean. Maybe try to make it a bit more spacious though. will recommend to anyone visiting Greece!

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....
