Featured Athens Hotels

Stay in our Holiday Inn® Athens hotels to discover this hotbed of trend-setting musicality. Athens, Georgia, calls itself the ultimate college town, but it's also a gracious Southern city of a certain age, with a sleepy pace and beautiful antebellum homes.

Book a stay at our hotels in Athens and see why it's considered a musical laboratory for budding rock stars. Live music streams out of clubs and cafes orbiting the University of Georgia campus. Pick up the free Athens Music History Walking Tour at the Athens Welcome Center, and see the legendary venues where native bands like R.E.M. and the B-52s got their start. Chartered in 1785, UG is one of the oldest universities in the country. Stroll storied Old North Campus, with crisscrossing greenswards lined with old oaks, magnolias and elks. Or spend a languid hour or two under the wisteria-clad arbors in the State Botanical Garden of Georgia-entry is free. Reopening in early 2011 after a major expansion, the Georgia Museum of Art includes works by Georgia O'Keefe, Stuart Davis, and Andrew Wyeth. If you're pressed for time, an easy and convenient way to explore the city's historic sights is on the 1-hour Classic City Tour from the Athens Welcome Center.

The city's culinary landscape is as electric as its music scene. Award-winning eateries rub shoulders with modest soul-food joints downtown, close to our Athens hotels. The city's club and bar scene reflects the local passion for music of all genres. Head downtown to the 40 Watt Club, still promoting edgy musical artists after 30 years.

Make our Athens hotels your convenient base for enjoying this Georgia college town, with a vibrant music scene in a historic Old South setting.

Perfect hotel for downtown.
By Adam F.
Excellent experience here. It really is the perfect hotel to stay at if you're wanting to be close to everything in downtown Athens and UGA. It's all in walking distance, too. [Less]

HI Athens, GA
By biz trvl
Very convenient location close to downtown Athens. Staff is very friendly and attentive. I stay often at this location and it starts to feel like a home away from home. Prices can be a little high [More] depending on occupancy and events going on in the hotel and the city. [Less]

great for money
By efthi45
had never stayed at candlewood suites before so was surprised by full kitchen, all very clean. for price, as long as you have car to get to downtown athens, was very good. so good that it was fully [More] booked and they only had one key per room available when we checked in. the gym could use more functional equipment. both steppers were not great but there was free laundry! to be used while you work out, which had i known, probably would have used and plan to use if i ever go to another candlewood hotel. also, laundry only done once per week, which i don't mind but my friend who came along, took issue with this. you can request extra, but maybe an issue for some. the other issue was that we could hear someone stomping around in the room above, in the wee hours of am most nights. not sure if this could be helped in any way. sleep would have been fine otherwise. overall great for this price point [Less]
Courteous staff and comfortable bed.
By Kristi2889
This was my first time staying at a Candlewood Suites. The front desk clerks were friendly. The beds were comfortable. There were soft and firm pillows on the bed. There was free open Wi-Fi. There is [More] no breakfast. However, within the first 30 minutes, I noticed that a beer bottle top was on the floor, which lead me to wonder about the cleanliness of the entire room. I travel with cleaning products so I starting wiping down everything. I do believe that if the room was vacuumed the bottle top would have been noticed. Also, there were stains on the chairs. Otherwise, everything else appeared to be clean- bathroom, beds, countertop, [Less]
