Was flying out of the Atlanta airport looking for a reasonable place to stay for a few hours. This hotel was in close proximity to the airport and offered a good rate. The room I received was clean and neat. The rest of the hotel looks like it might need some maintenance. Would stay there again given the room that...

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights while we took our vacation in Atlanta. The place is old and needs a bit of work but for the price we paid, we got everything and more. The room was clean and had a microwave and fridge.

The overall room was clean (meaning, clean sheets and clean surfaces) and there were no bugs. There is ample storage for your clothes and a useful desk area. Plenty of sockets to charge up your electronics and free wifi. Ample hot water, good heat and plenty of cable channels. My room was very quiet - didn't hear my neighbors at...

Though I'll admit that as other reviewers have stated this property isn't in the best neighborhood and it's also true it's a bit worn around the edges but we didn't necessarily feel in danger at anytime. We needed only one night to get some rest before continuing onwards and this Econo Lodge was right off the highway so it served...

This hotel should not be apart of Choice Hotels as the parking & parking is not good pot holes and some deep swells. The stairs are steel and very dangerous if wet at all you better hold on to the rail or you will fall. If there is any rain & lighting you will get fried. The whole place is...

This was by far the worst hotel/motel stay in my entire life. I booked 5 rooms over the phone with choice hotels. We waited till longer than we should have to reserve a room so many area hotels were booked. I chose this hotel because of the choice hotel chain. We were traveling with our church youth group. Upon arrival...

I had a very nice stay here, three nights, no issues. Room was clean and comfortable, easy location right off the I-285 loop, and a very reasonable rate. The free breakfast is nothing to write home about, but it was adequate for me (cereal, muffins, juice). An unexpected bonus was that there was a mini-frig in the room which had...

Location is great since it's right of of 285. Rooms were fair.. I can't remember the lady's name who was at the front desk, it may have been patel, in the morning, but she was great. I even offered her a tip, but she did not take it.

Ok where do I begin. When I checked in the lady at the front desk was absolutely nice. She was helpful and pleasant. Now when I got to my room. I was not that pleased. I wasn't feeling well so I didn't notice all the wrong things. But after getting up I saw that there was no smoke detector in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were met by a charming young lady when we checked in. She was very courteous and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay. They offered us 24 hour coffee service and a wonderful continental breakfast with a large variety of items to choose from. Our room was clean and the...
