Thanks to this property, I have a new lower threshold when it comes to appalling hotels that I have stayed at. I will quickly list the sparse positives. Located within short walking distance to important conference venues in downtown Atlanta. The staff were very helpful to me and offered me an 11 AM check-in the day I arrive, so I didn't have to put my bags in storage and roam around. Compared to other nearby downtown hotels, this was a great bargain.
Now, it's time to attempt listing some of the most glaring negative points. My online reservation was made in the name of Savannah Suites. My Uber driver couldn't find the hotel as they had surreptitiously changed the name to something else and covered up the signboard with a fabric. The check-in, as mentioned earlier, was smooth and a rare positive about the place. The first-floor room itself couldn't have been in worse condition. The AC/heater was a noise hazard. The carpet was unbelievably dirty, strewn with some uncollected trash and the whole room had a weird stinking smell. The bathroom and kitchenette area were the happy hunting grounds for a colony of cockroaches. In the entire duration of three nights, that I stayed, I was provided with a change of bathing towels only once, and that too after having asked for it twice. I was never able to properly connect to the WiFi, in spite of being two doors away from the office. The office is only open until 5 PM which might be inconvenient for many travelers. The walls were paper thin and I was often forced to share the TV programming being enjoyed by my neighbors. My upstairs neighbors were the super active type and would often wake me up in the middle of the night by indulging in, possibly, Zumba lessons.
Why didn't I bring these to the attention of the office staff, you might ask. The neighborhood had a homeless shelter and the entire street lining the hotel was usually swarming with homeless people and drug dealers (I was directly approached a few times, not just a prejudiced opinion). It was extremely scary to travel in and out of the hotel, especially at night. The street and the hotel itself always had the presence of cops. One night, while returning back, I witnessed a person being escorted out of the premises by the cops too. From what it seemed, the Hotel houses a few long-time residents and they naturally behave in a manner which behooves their sense of belonging. I could never dare to complain about the noise.

In summary, it was a nerve-wracking experience for the entire duration of the stay. The day I checked out, there was a massive snowstorm which brought the city to a standstill. Yet I chose to stick to my original plans of driving to the Smoky Mountains amidst the raging snowstorm over the possibility of staying one more night in the Savannah Suites.

They do not clean the room. The room is dirty and noise. Security is questionable. Although close to the downtown area, the property is also very close to a noisy neighborhood. Roaches in the room. Forget it.

This place is the worst hotel I've been in my entire life. I don't care about fancy hotels, always prefer price over quality, but this hotel is beyond acceptable. The room is nasty, it s besides a homeless shelter. You feel unsafe the entire time. Even with security there 24/7 I felt like someone would brake in our apartment. The homeless are noisy the entire time. They stay hanging out on the streets in front of the shelter and in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: stay away from this place

Wanted to stay on budget, still spent like 70$ a night (while Hilton downtown was 100$). When we arrived we noticed all the homeless people outside , there was like 200 of them because of the homeless shelter next. Room was smelly and dirty, the stuff was pretty mean and not helpful at all. Would never go again.

I would rather spend less on where I'm staying and more on things to do which is why I booked in here. However, it is right next to a homeless shelter and there are literally hundreds of homeless people on the streets outside, its very sad to see and lots of drug deals going on as well. When it came to feeling safe, I did once inside the grounds of the hotel as there was a 24 hour security guard who checked every single persons ID who goes into the hotel. It can be a bit noisey and the room wasn't as clean as it should have been but we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel.
