While hotels are often booked months in advance, you can always find a home for rent from the thousands of Augustans who flee the city during Masters Week. Lavish homes can fetch $20,000 or more for the week, and are often rented out by sponsoring companies. More modest homes can be rented for around $500 per night.
The most charming hotel in town, the Partridge Inn, can be found in the old historic district of Summerville, known as "The Hill":
The Partridge Inn
2110 Walton Way
Another popular choice is the Marriott on the River Walk downtown:
Augusta Marriott Hotel & Suites
In the heart of the Riverwalk in downtown Augusta
Major hotel and motel chains are all represented in Augusta, including Sheraton, Quality Inn, Amerisuites, Wingate Inn, Sleep Inn, Econo Lodge, Hampton Inn, Courtyard by Marriott, Holiday Inn, La Quinta, Ramada, and more.
If you want to go the rental home route, the Masters Housing Bureau (800-244-4709 or mastershousing.com) can assist in finding a house that meets your needs.
Another alternative is to check the classifieds section of the Augusta Chronicle newspaper. Many residents offer homes and rooms for rent even on a last-minute basis.
