Very good mattress, first rate pillows. One of the best showers I've ever had. A little worn on the appearance front but overall they seem to understand what really matters. Also the price is right. $25.00 less than the other motels around them.

We only needed 6 or 7 hours of sleep and we wanted a good sleep without dropping $100 for a quick overnight while driving from FL to IN. Scottish Inns has several locations and the Athens location provided everything in a very spacious room. The room was very clean, the king bed was comfortable and the staff were kind. I...

It was a place to sleep at while traveling. Nothing special, but not the worst we have stayed in. It is an older place and we seen daylight under the door. But we did get a good nights rest, so that is what is important. The rate was great also.

I would have rated higher if not for the lady at the front desk and the housekeeper insisting on cleaning the room after the first day. I had to take my dog outside and walk around while three people checked out the room. That was very intrusive and inappropriate. My dog is a 13 year old Golden mix who only...

Rooms are older but still clean and quiet. The boys enjoyed the pool. And the breakfast was good. Just danish and coffee but they also offer a good discount at the shoneys next door. Its convenient to the interstate as well so if you plan to do things outside of Athens it's a great location.

Stopped here after finally being too tired to keep driving through. It was a holiday weekend so we expected the normal pricing to be a little higher, which it was, but still the cheapest in the area. Rooms are dated, but still spacious and clean. The a/c is not on before you get into the room. That would probably be...
