The hotel was clean. I think it was very good value for the price I paid.

Not that clean, poor breakfast. Not worth the money. Should not advertise a full breakfast. Poor hot food. Outdoor entrances.

Athen, AL Best Western has up to date design and is very clean! All the staff, who I encountered, went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating.

The room was clean, comfortable, and furnished very nicely. There was a desk for my computer, and the bed was comfortable. The iron and ironing board came in handy. The refrigerator and microwave were clean and I liked having them handy. The hotel had a washer and dryer available for guests.

This is a nice hotel for staying one night. Everything was very clean and neat, and the staff was very nice. We stayed on a very hot summer night, and were disappointed to find the air conditioner off when we arrived. The front desk clerk was very busy when we arrived, so they could have been better staffed. The shower was fabulous, and the kids had fun in the pool. We arrived shortly before the pool was to close, and the attendant let the kids have an extra 20 minutes to swim. Family friendly, and the pillows were fabulous. ...

The hotel was close to the highway, easy to access and close to restaurants. While the breakfast was small, it was good. The only problem with the room was the carpet was wet, as if it had been cleaned and not dried. I would stay there again if need be if they would again give me a room on the bottom floor.
