  • I was surprised when they started charging $10 a day for parking. Disappointing.

  • More of an upper scale motel than a hotel.

      Not perfect but we enjoyed it!

      Overall we enjoyed our stay quite a bit! The unique rooms were super fun. VERY comfortable. My son loved it! The only negative was cleanliness. Overall it was fine but we had ants in the bathroom, a cheeto left on the floor that the maids must have missed, and smudgy prints on doors. It was supposed to be "Sanitized" due to COVID procedures. It didn't feel highly sanitized to me but like I said, we really enjoyed our stay! Would definitely give it another try. I have also visited a friend when they stayed in one of the suites and it was AMAZING!

      Don’t bother especially if you have allergies

      While the check in was friendly, they needed one more person working the front desk. Our room was extremely musty smelling, like overpowering. Due to the age of the hotel and the outdated HVAC, I’m sure other rooms weren’t much better. The room was only superficially clean, dust on lamps, dirty glasses left from prior guests. It was convenient to the venues we were visiting but awful otherwise.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Property was in rough shape. The room was musty and smelt strongly of mildew. All surfaces in the room were damp. Found quite a few ants in the bed. In closer inspection of the reviews it seems like this is a theme. If I was staying longer I would have cancelled my booking to stay somewhere clean.

      Stinky bathroom

      Hotel was very nice, bathroom had a very strong smell of urine. Only complaint was the smell of the bathroom. Room was overall nice and loved the decor and theme.

      Wonderful Stay

      The Graduate is super cute, clean, and comfortable. The staff at The Graduate Athens is wonderful -- very friendly and helpful. We stayed when some restrictions due to COVID were still in place, so didn't get to visit the restaurant/lounge, but did use the small pool, which provided for a wonderfully relaxing afternoon.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      Rooms were a little confining - large beds and desk & chair made for narrow walkways; bathroom was rather small and not enough hooks for used towels. A/C did not circulate well, as it stayed next to the window and didn't reach the other side of the room. Maid service was only on demand.
