Looks better in the picture

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 1, 2015
I booked the room to get a good night sleep after a long day of work. Room was noisy on parking lot, you could hear all the pipes, the ac unit in room cut on and off every 3mins and jarred the room each time, the tv had a loud buzzing sound if you turned it up past 3, as soon as I got to sleep at 1am the phone rang...another guest thinking my room was the front desk. One side is a deadend parking lot with a very narrow center. They should leave the last two spaces vacant so large vehicles can turn around. I got stuck at the end in a very large cargo van and had to back all tthe way out. I wasn't expecting Lowes for $90 but I was expecting a basic quiet well maintained room for a solid 6 hours of sleep before I had to go back to work . This hotel did not meet my expectation.

Yes, this hotel met my exceptions. I knew before staying there that it is a 3 star hotel and everything corresponded to a 3-star level hotel. Also, location is great and there is a city shuttle that stops there to provide rides to Atlanta Int'l Airport.

Great for a nights stay

Would recommend Sun, Sep 21, 2014
I was exhausted after traveling from my last city. The room and location was nice. However I asked for front desk to call me cab and they did. The cab never showed up After waiting 20minutes. Not hotels fault but I decided to order delivery. Front desk staff helped me place my order. I appreciate that. The next morning I had a terrible headache and asked front desk if they had any aleve. She stated we only have what is in the medicine cabinet. Which was not completely full only had two items. So I had to drive to nearest store to get aleve.
