“Amazing stay! UGA Hotel is a treasure! I usually use Marriott points when I go places, but this was far and away, a special experience being on campus! It was really the many small nice touches that made the difference. Keep doing what you’re doing! I can’t wait to stay there again.”

“The special rate of $59 was awesome! It turned this trip into an overnight adventure as we came to see the lighted botanical gardens with our UGA law school daughter. Without the affordable rate, we would have returned home to Gainesville. Loved it!”

“Everything was perfect. My room was immaculate and nicely decorated. Though, the bathroom was small, the use of the space was excellent. The glass shower doors made the space appear larger. Everything was in place. I would this accommodation at the University of Georgia.”

Diane B.

“We were visiting our freshman student for the homecoming game & had a great time. Thank you for getting us game day ready!”

Jeremy S.

“Per usual, my stay at the Georgia Center began with a conversation with Shannon. She’s an absolute delight and sets the tone for our visit. Upon check-in, staff was extremely courteous. No other hotel provides the experience that you get while at the Georgia Center on game weekends. Our absolute favorite.”

“I would highly recommend friends and family to stay there. Everything was to my standard and above all other hotels. Thanks to your staff for a great job, especially your breakfast crew. Mr. John was awesome. He served our breakfast fast. The line was long, but he handled his business. We had a great family reunion and the food was awesome. Thanks again.”

“Great place to stay, hidden away on the University campus. If you are staying in the area, stay here! One of the nicer hotels I have ever stayed at — a total surprise but very worth it! Nice room, excellent facilities, very clean, and very nice staff.”

Samuel L.

“It was a wonderful place for our family to meet together with our granddaughter. The breakfast was really delicious!”

Misty M.

“I wanted to tell you again how much we appreciated last weekend. We had the best anniversary! Everyone at the hotel was very helpful, and the room was outstanding, not to mention going to the game!”

Kristin B.

“The BEST place to stay for UGA football! Where else can you have a great night’s sleep and be greeted with a UGA Cheerleader pep rally in the lobby on game day?! Where else can your kiddo high-five Hairy Dawg in the halls, or see Uga trotting by on his way to the game? If all that EXTRA isn’t enough, the staff here are amazing. They are friendly, gracious, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are well-appointed, modern and very clean. The food at the cafe is yummy, and they have a couple bars open on game days for those who might be interested. We have definitely found our place for football weekends in Athens!”

Linda M.

“We are originally from Georgia and were so excited to stay here; we truly miss Athens. Your staff is amazing. I had trouble opening my fruit container at breakfast and a staff member helped me. As UGA fans, this was an awesome experience. Thanks for a great evening.”

“I graduated from UGA in 1977 and never realized while I was there that the Continuing Ed. Center also had a hotel. I was very impressed with everything about the Center and felt like I was in my early 20s again. I will definitely stay at the Center on my next visits.”

“I commend the university for excellence in service. I’m truly impressed with this university-run hotel. Our stay was peaceful — the setting was especially lush and verdant. Additionally: in a time where outsourcing is the norm, it was a pleasant surprise to find this university-run business that employs both local residents and students. Bravo!”

“Absolutely loved your hotel! So thankful to find this last minute and most important was that checking at 11:40 p.m. was perfect. Employee sensed our exhaustion and was so sweet! We have traveled all throughout the nation during the pandemic and your hotel has been the absolute cleanest with the most minute details of cleanliness protection taken. Drove 11 hours to arrive, plus 4 hours moving our son into his university apartment, and this was a welcome blessing to finish the day.”

“[Because of an injury that required the use of crutches] the front desk had upgraded us to a larger room … This was a very nice surprise after a long trip. The location and accessibility features of the room helped so much during our stay. We have a daughter who is a first-year student and look forward to many future stays at the Georgia Center. You have won our loyalty!”

“This was my first time staying here and I will definitely stay again if given the opportunity. There was no need to go offsite; the amenities were great, the atmosphere was so relaxing and comfortable. The food was excellent. I ate the shrimp and grits and I promise, they were the best shrimp and grits I ever had. I had a wonderful experience.”
