Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 178 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn--University This hotel is ideally located for anyone visiting the UGA, more so than any other in Athens. It is directly across from the Northwest corner of campus, a convenient walk to the libraries, and also across Broad Street from the bars and restaurants downtown. I visit several times a year, because I always enjoy my stay. August 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Athens downtown To begin with, while the Hotel building is old, it is pretty much what you have come to expect from a Holiday Inn. The location however, is horrible. The address is incorrectly given as on E. Broad, but the entry is actually on Hull, which left us confused and at first unable to figure out how to access the hotel. The parking is woefully inadequate and left us having to park across the street in another lot which being disabled was inconvenient. It didn't help that the Hotel was undergoing renovation which added to the confusion. Add in the unbelievable traffic in the downtown university area and you begin to see a picture of why you might want to avoid this lodging. Actually, there is a Holiday Inn Express just down Broad which appears much newer and much easier to access, but you still have the downtown area traffic to deal with. The room was fine and comfortable, however as we were on the second floor there was some traffic noise to deal with. Our only complaint on the room was that there was no towel bar in the bathroom upon which to hang a face towel, never experienced that before that I can recall. We paid the additional fee for an included breakfast, which was a buffet that while not great was a good deal for the price. Overall, my advice would be that unless you have business in the downtown Athens area you would be much better off to seek accommodations somewhere other than in the downtown area. August 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AC Broke and Couldnt access internet Our air conditioning didn't work and we were sweating the entire night. I had a triathlon the next morning so I go no sleep. In addition, they supplied with internet access info but we couldn't even find the network to join. Until these things are fixed I would not recommend. August 27, 2014
