I have stayed here three times now. If you are wanting luxury then this is not the place for you. If you want a reasonably clean room at a good rate then this is the place to stay. I stay in a lot of hotels for work and I am not super picky. I like to get a ground floor...

After an internet search, I made a reservation to stay at this property last Friday night just as an overnight stay en route to another destination. As my family and I were nearing Macon I called the hotel as I wanted to verify that my room was indeed reserved and available. My first question on the phone was to ask...

Very quite stay, and very adequate for what I need while I handle my affairs within the Macon area. It is conveniently located near restaurants, grocery store and 24 hr gym. So it definitely meets all the requirement that I need during my long stays in Macon.

Granted, we requested a smoking room so we knew it wouldn't be the best of their rooms but, my goodness. The many, many burns on the very old, frayed blanket really should be replaced. That, in & of itself, leaves a bad impression without even looking around the rest of the place. The cold water squirting out of the cold...

We are here now and are only staying because it is too late to go somewhere else. Let's just say I would rather sleep in the car. The room was musty and paint was peeling. I slept on top of the sheets after I took off the stained duvet.

Management is not so friendly, however the desk clerk Jennifer made the stay very pleasing with her great personality and people skills. While being put down by management she showed no signs of agitation. She was very informative about the hotel and the area. I give the hotel a 10 because of the staff.

Checked into the first room and it reeked of mold and meldew. There was no smoke detector and the bathroom was horrible. The fridge was filthy and the stains on the sheets. So the front desk moved my friend and I to the neighboring room. The smell was a little better but there were water stains on the walls and...

The place is over priced for what is provided. The nonsmoking room smells like a bar. There were bugs in the shower. The water ran all night in the tub. The sheets were clean. The towels appeared to be clean. The beds were comfortable. It's is an old place in need of a lot of maintenance work.
