This was the nicest stay on our week-long vacation. Hotel is very clean. Amenities in the room worked as they should. This sounds crazy but the shower is amazing. The bed was very comfortable. AC worked great. There are only two negatives IMO. The check-in process isn't streamlined. A deposit is needed. Who does that any more? Breakfast is very lacking. Might as well not have one.

The Athena Inn is the cheapest place to find a minifridge and microwave, if that's important to you, which it is to me. The bedroom also has a nice, but inaccessible shower. Everything else has a worn, shabby quality it is hard to distinguish from neglect -- the lobby is locked, the help desk took 20 minutes to register us with a prepaid registration (with the lobby closed it was so hot and closed in, the person behind us had to wait outside and nearly left to find another hotel), there was visible dust and dead insects in the night window. It scores very poorly on accessibility; the room I was put in let me drive up to the door but doesn't have enough room for a wheelchair, and the fancy shower has no shower stool or even just a waterproof chair. No handsoap, just dial and mystery shampoo pumps in the shower. The room sleeps 4 but seats 1 -- I had to take turns sitting in the extremely uncomfortable desk chair with peeling faux leather arms. Despite all this, I got a fine night's sleep in one of the two extremely and profoundly okay queen beds despite an incredibly loud and aggressive air conditioner (yes even for a hotel) and the minifridge keeps things very cold. The "coffee" in my room is that cheap single serve stuff in a watery machine with no creamer -- sort of inexcusable with a minifridge not to have a tiny bucket of creamers and a real percolator, IMO. I would not stay here again, and if they're asking for more than $60 to sleep here post taxes, pass on it.
