    Great location!

    Friendly staff, clean room, well-lit grass area for pet relief. Good continental breakfast. Perfect location from interstate (for our travel) with plenty of restaurants close.

    Good for a quick overnight stay

    This definitely falls more under the motel category. The staff was polite, room was outdated and our bathroom sink was backed up but it was fine for the quick stop for our pooch. We will probably stay here again as needed.

    Close to highway and clean!

    The hotel was clean, and each room has a door outside which makes it convenient to take your dog out. Staff were nice and there are restaurants really close.

    Best Western Athens

    This is a motel like facility with outside doors in each room and two floors. Our room showed a bit of age but was very clean. Note: none of the hotels accessible rooms are pet friendly. Very convenient location off of I-65.

    Nice hotel

    Perfect for the pooch. No carpeting, tiled or linoleum flooring. Clean. Good breakfast and location from interstate was a plus. Several restaurants close by.

    Great value

    Very dog friendly. Clean and updated, unlike so many pet rooms at other hotels in this price range. The breakfast was awesome also.

    Great for an overnight stay

    We needed to spend a night on the way to Dauphin Island. Great proximity to the highway. Lots of restaurants nearby. Room was dated on the outside but inside was fairly modern. Small grassy area for pets and the street beyond the hotel was nice for a walk. Josh at the front desk was very helpful. Would return.

    Hotel is OK

    This hotel is not as nice as many I’ve stayed in, but adequate. It appears to be an upgraded old hotel, with the room doors opening directly to the outside. Handy for traveling with a dog. Clean, but tired - scrapes and scuffs on doors, just needs work. Staff very pleasant, stayed during COVID-19 and they were taking it very seriously.

    Very dog friendly

    I found this hotel one of the best my dog and I have stayed at. The floors are laminate do there’s no odor. The door goes right outside where I was able to quickly bring Axel out. Staff was great. It was quiet with comfy bed and pillows. I definitely recommend.
