My stay was very pleasant and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was wonderful and hot. I would stay here again and recommend it to my friends. My next visit to Macon this will be my first choice.

Me and family along with my sister got adjoining rooms on our way to Fl. The rooms were cute. Nothing spectacular but definitely not the worst. Bathrooms were clean, beds were soft. Didn't see the pool. Breakfast wasn't that good at all. Next trip to Fl. we would probably stay somewhere else.

The hotel is fine and is a great value for the money. Rooms were clean and satisfactory. A great place for the value. Kind of in an oddball section of town and it's locale is noteworthy: It's the "anchor" for a nearly completely dead strip-mall. Surrounded by retail desolation -- and adjacent to a decrepit building that once housed (likely)...

But surely not the best. Good value for what you do get. Clean beds. Slowwww drains and tub was dirty with 2-3 inches of standing dirty water. Could not shower there. Friendly staff though. If looking for a cheap stopover, this is the place. The exterior was ok. Well lit parking lot. Lobby was clean and inviting.

So first off, this isn't in the greatest part of town. It has a shopping center around it that is mostly empty so I am not sure how secure it is. All that being said, the hotel itself was ok. The lobby area was just fine, but the rooms were outdated and the bathroom could have used a healthy dose...

Very nice, clean, large room, great price! Chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and, as usual, was not disappointed. Also very quiet to be located so close to the interstate. GPS directions a bit confusing, as hotel is actually located off the road, adjacent to an almost deserted strip mall. Definitely worth finding though!

Room was adequate. A little mold on the tub handles in the bathroom. Bed was extremely comfortable and pillows were also. Mattress was firm which was good for my back. Continental breakfast was very good. My night was quiet and peaceful.

We stayed one night, driving from KY to FL. We chose this hotel due a good deal at a booking website.Staff were very friendly during check in, check out and breakfast. Room size is decent, but it was not the cleanest and the biggest issue was the bed. There was no down elastic sheet, just a regular sheet, therefore, the...

Great staff, great breakfast and great price. will def be staying here again. The manager was very helpful! Wanted to surprise my wife with a romantic night in a jacuzzie suite and called ahead of time, and they told me they would take care of it. Was worried but when we got there, they had roses, wine, chocolate and everything...
