Perfect for my wife and myself for an overnight. Very accommodating at check in, super nice desk person. Very affordable but hidden behind a Burger King, which you must access through there parking lot but well worth it. Room had two double beds large bathroom with the biggest tub and shower we've ever seen in a motel chain. Clean and...

It's kind of hard to find because the entrance is in the parking lot of the Burger King that is directly in front of the hotel. The room was recently updated and painted with a 80's style orange color. The place was clean and cheap so yeah I would stay there again if I was on the road.

Exceeded expectations - good value in all respects. Gentleman at front desk very helpful. Very clean, reasonably comfortable. Quiet until the morning - loud guests are always a nuisance - additionally those who smoke by the front door - this not the motel's fault though.

My husband and I visited last night on a road trip. The room was very clean, the manager was very nice and helpful. Will stop there again on our next trip through Athens. The building was in good condition- one of the best Motel 6 we have stayed at.

We have been staying at this hotel for about 9 weeks now, on and off throughout our project. The front desk manager has been easy to work with and has offered great rates for an extended period of time. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but we didn't expect it to be. The hotel wifi works fine and the...
