Be Aware of EXTRA Hidden...

Liked: Nice location and great shower
Disliked: As I was leaving the desk after checking into the hotel, the desk person (young woman) asked ?Oh, do you need a parking pass?? Of course I did, since I am driving a car??? She handed me a pink slip to place in my car...okay, the next day I was charged 10.00 in addition to my rather expensive room rate. I think this was an inappropriate way to do this. I should have been made aware of this charge when given the slip of paper. There were assigned parking spots in front of each room...why do you charge for parking? I was told there was free coffee for us in the room/cafe next to the registration desk...but only between 7 and 8 am. I was told twice we could only have 2 cups of free coffee. Did I look like a person who would drink too much of their coffee? I was not going to be up before 8am anyway.Next, the room was very warm and stuffy when we entered. I turned the thermostat off of heat and to cool. The room stayed between 72 and 76 degrees all night. I called the front desk and they sent a maintenance man to check the thermostat (very nice young man). He tried, but nothing helped. He could not check it out on the roof at night...understandable. It was a warm and uncomfortable night.Last, but not least, the mattress was very saggy and kept pushing us to the center of the bed. Wow, we were glad to get out of there!This was our first stay in a Graduate Inn...never heard of them before. It will be our last stay, too. The surprise parking fee took the cake!...and compelled me to review and mention the other unpleasant happenings. I hope the air conditioning works for the next visitor in room 303...warmer weather is coming.Bottom line, we felt taken advantage of and rather abused. I still don?t understand the stressing of ONLY 2 coffees?

We will never stay here...

Liked: The room is welcoming.
Disliked: The food, virtually everything about the food service (speed, quality, variety) was awful. The walls are so thin we could hear our neighboring guests say and do everything.

The Graduate Athens is a...

Liked: The vibe of the Graduate Athens is awesome. It's eclectic and fun and is located in a great location. It's a couple of blocks from "downtown." The staff are very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and it's a great place to stay in Athens. It's my go-to when I'm visiting my daughter at UGA.
Disliked: The doors could have better seals. I could see daylight around the edges of our door. I had to pay for parking which I've never had to do before. I'm not sure if the difference is that normally I book directly with the Graduate. Just be forewarned that if you book through, they charge $10 per night for parking.
