Room was nasty sheet looked like they haven't been changed in a long time

This was a terrible experience! We checked in and the manager gave us a room key. We went to the room, opened the door and realized this room was already occupied by other individuals. They were not in their room, but their belongings were there. BIG RED FLAG!! Very poor security. We went back to the office and explained the situation and received a 2nd room key. We went to that room and it smelled and looked like people had been rolling around on the beds. The bathroom had mold. We went back again and received a 3rd room key. I will just say that the third room was worse than the second. At that point we were willing to lose our money for this prepaid reservation, which by the way I will never do again, and we left and went to another hotel.

Not a great place, a little old and run down but for the money cannot do better. Staff always friendly and helpful. I stay here every year when I come up for a game in Athens since price is right.

I use this hotel as a reasonably-priced accommodation for sheep dog trials in the area. It's old and and a little run down, but adequate for my purposes. They accept dogs, and there is a good place next to it to let the dogs run. I have stayed there around 10 times. The rooms are reasonably clean, and quiet. Security has never been an issue. It's very close to the Interstate entrance.

We had a good experience and the Manager Tony was very professional and checked on us to make certain that everything we required was accomplished. Our thanks to Tony and the staff.

Just stopped in for the night. Good hotel for the money. No complaints. Breakfast was lacking.

We were very tired after a long day in Atlanta and were trying to find an affordable nice place to stay. We came across this hotel and booked it online. We went to the front desk, where they couldn't find our reservations at first. When they did find it they let us know that it was for later, but would check us in at a later time and gave us keys to the hotel room. It was around 5AM and we were tired so we just said okay and went to the room. The room was straight out of the 80s and almost felt like it was out of an adult film, but we were there so we went to bed. We were rudely woken up by the owner, I believe, banging at our door claiming we stole the hotel room. We assured him of what happened and he would not leave. He made my girlfriend walk down to the office in her pajamas, he would not give her time to change, to talk to them. We could not understand at all what he was saying. Later she told me that he made her extremely uncomfortable, by trying to kiss her on the cheek and saying inappropriate things. This whole ordeal was very annoying and we left as soon as she got it straightened out, even though we were still very exhausted and needed more time to relax. I would not recommend staying at this hotel ever.

Internet was extremely bad. Should invest in a more powerful router! Left the room for the day, came back to spend the second night, beds were not done. Very noisy. We will not come back.

it was clean. not a rough area. over all happy about my stay.

So it had a couple of cleanliness issues ... carpets needed to be vacuumed a li'l more and apparently something had spilled where the TV was so there was a line under the TV of whatever it was, which I suppose I could understand if the housekeeper couldn't lift the TV to clean under it ... but it would have been nice if those details were noticed. As for the beds and restroom, they were very clean. The Tanger Outlets are right down the road and plenty of restaurants to go to for every budget. Overall, I think we got great value for the price!

Did not like the hotel at all, everything looked old. The bathrooms were acceptable, but the bed sheets were old. The rugs were dirty and can use some steam cleaning. The walls can use some paint.

We figured this hotel would be ok for 2 nights for a UGA football game.. we weren't really expecting to be in the room but to sleep so it didn't need to be great. When we got to the room, the door wouldn't close, the towels looked dirty, the floor and chair had white stains on them, the blanket had burn holes on it, and there was a little maggot on the pillow. Needless to stay, we went right back to the office and left as fast as we could. We only got our money back for one night. DO NOT STAY HERE. It is worth the extra cash to go somewhere else. Very disappointed.

Our room was on the back side of the hotel which was right next to the interstate. The light fixtures on the wall where nearly falling off and some of the lights in the room did not have light bulbs. Beds where a lot smaller than the picture made them out to be. We will spend the extra cash next time to get a better hotel.

The hotel was old, but the rooms were clean. They had microwave, refrigerator, coffee in room, iron & iron board (I think blow also - didn't use it). I was very impressed with the water pressure & hot water - water pressure very strong & the water very hot. I would stay there again.

We went to the NMRA/NMCA races, hotel was convienently located to the track and places to eat.

Clean rooms and friendly staff. We will stay there again. Easy access to Tanger Outlet malls and to UGA.

only spent the night was all that I needed plus I needed a pet friendly hotel

This location accomadated all of my needs and then some. It was very close to shopping and dinning. I will definately stay here again and bring my family with me to enjoy the pool as I enjoyed it.

Came in only to sleep. Moved on to business appt.

Older and a little run down but clean. Served my purpuse for an inexpensive and clean room
