4/10 Fair

Recently and surprisingly disappointed
Room was musty. Refrigerator did not work and neither did the tv. The room is in dire need of an update. Very disappointed as I have stayed here before in better rooms. It’s mostly the mold that is getting to me.

Very eclectic place to stay! We were in Athens for UGA orientation and this place was nearby and the price was great! The room was clean! The a/c could have done a better job! We kept it on the lowest setting our entire stay and it was only comfortable- never cool. And, my son said the gym could use a little update!

A fine visit to the Graduate.
The room, (2Q) was spotless with an amazingly charming faux vintage decor. The hotel is within walking distance of the UGA Arch. The staff member that checked me was very polite and helpful. Their system of using texts to communicate needs to the staff (more towels/blankets, clean this room, etc.) was interesting, but my stay was very brief and I didn't need anything. I'll happily stay here again.
