The first thing I do when I get in my room is lock and latch my door. Soon after I entered my room someone tried to enter with the master key. Thanks goodness the latch was on. Then they went to the room next door and tried to enter through the adjoining door, but I'd lock that one when I... More

The hotel is in a good location. Not far to go to some good restaurants. Front desk was very friendly. Our room was good. Although it smelled a little of chlorine although the pool was outside. Not sure why our room smelled? The room was updated. Over all it was a nice room.

This BW is located just outside the downtown area of Macon. Very easy to reach off I 75. Clean, nice rooms and for a decent price. Typical BW breakfast. We will stay here again when visiting Macon on our way south to Florida

I stay at Best Western Hotels whenever possible when traveling and vacationing. Best Western offers the amenities I like and I have yet to find one that was not well kept and maintained. I have never encountered an employee who was not very friendly, courteous and willing to make the stay the best. Thank you Best Western.

Best place to stay in Macon. Complimentary hot breakfast, powerful hot showers, and southern hospitality galore. Vicki welcomed everyone to breakfast and assisted when needed. She is a gem. I would recommend this Best Western to anyone needing a home away from home in Macon.

I reserved a non smoking king bed room for one night. On my arrival, I got a room with twin queen beds in it. Why go thru with reserving a particular room when you don't get it when you check in. Too tired to change rooms, just went to bed. May think twice about BW next trip...

this is our go to place whenever we are traveling from Ohio to Florida. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff is friendly and always remembers us. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is a full breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage, sausage gravy, waffles etc. It is right off I-75 and has restaurants right near by.
