The Hampton Inn in Athens, Georgia assures a comfortable stay with an outdoor pool, complimentary hot breakfast, a small fitness room, and close to many fun spots (like an easy 10-minute drive to UGA’s Sanford Stadium).
The spacious and comfortable rooms come in several configurations. The best option for families are the King Bed Study Sofabed and the King Bed with Sofabed. Both rooms sleep four and come with a mini-fridge, a microwave and a coffee maker. All rooms also have a 32-inch flat-screen. A hot breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi are complimentary.
The Hampton Inn is 2.5-miles to Five Points (lovely shopping, restaurants, and bars), 3.3-miles to the Georgia Museum of Art, 5.2-miles to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, 2.8-miles to the Terrapin Brewery for craft beer that offers a brewery tour, and 2.2-miles to The Globe for beers, wines and single malt scotch.

This hotel is located at a VERY busy intersection and we were awakened all night by traffic noise. You can also hear every guest walking through the hallway. This hotel is not anywhere near the U of GA campus and an Uber is required to get back & forth. The complimentary breakfast is also extremely minimal and the eggs both mornings were stone cold.
Great location, centrally located to everything in Athens, GA. Staff very nice, hotel very clean. Amenities including coffee, breakfast and snacks available in lobby very good. Rooms and bathroom good size but the bed was absolutely terrible and without a good night's sleep, nothing is really good.
