    The free continental breakfast was nice. The beds were comfortable.

    The TV channel guide provided by the front desk and the one on-screen were different from each other and were both incorrect, not even close to being accurate.

    Staff was good. Judy in the office was delightful. Helped us find the room after getting turned around.

    I had asked for a ground floor room since I have both knees replaced and my friend has 2 heart stints. Didn't want to push our luck!! My other problem was there were no grab bars in the shower. Just had to be very careful. I thought all rooms had those.

    Very good

    Room was very clean and put together. We had everything we needed. Nothing extravagant but for a one night stay in Athens it was a really decent hotel 5 min from where all the action was. The lady that checked me in was so pleasant despite being very busy with multiple phone calls during our transaction. She apologized and was very efficient. Can't remember her name but she had long hair and was Caucasian.

    I was checked out by a different lady and she was unnessarily rude. When I came in the office she was at the sink in the breakfast area, I said hello and she never greeted me back. So I said I'm here to check out and she responded with 'you're gonna have to wait a minute, I'm kinda busy here as you can see'. Totally unwarranted attitude. All she needed to say was Hi or good morning. And I'll be right with you. But she decided to not greet me and give me a snarky answer instead. I knew she was busy and I was waiting with no problem but I wanted her to acknowledge me because I found it rude to ignore my hello. Can't remember her name but she was African American and had short hair. But despite that last impression of the hotel, i had a great quiet stay. It serves it's purpose and I have no complaints of the room just this unnessarily rude lady.
