This is the worst hote ever. Rooms are too small. It’s a half bathroom. Water pressure was terrible. There were roaches all over the room. You have to go to the front desk for an iron and ironing board. The room just looks beat down and old. I wouldn’t go back to this hotel if it was free. They should have paid me to stay there. Disappointing

I have used orbitz many times and I have NEVER had a problem til this stay. It was horrible. The hotel wasn’t a clean one. Our bathroom sink was in the bed area. No shower curtain on shower floor was buckled up from the water from shower. During the night our air conditioning leaked ALL of the floor and flooded our suitcases. We left in the same clothes we arrived in bc all our others was soaked from the flooded air conditioner. When we said something to the staff they said it was because they was remodeling. That is NO excuse for nastiness or a flooded room.

Bates motel. American horror story. Death trap. Run.

Between crackheads roaming around, hookers waiting outside to sneak in the hotel "key card access door", loud ghetto guests hanging out in the lobby, and murky smoky jail-inspired rooms...I wouldn't recommend this hotel for animals to stay in.

The room was so terrible .. Everything was falling apart . You can even tell from the lobby ..

After a long, tiresome drive, I arrived at the hotel a bit before 1 AM. The deskman said I was not booked, there was no confirmation from Orbitz and I would have to contact Orbitz to verify my reservation. I returned to my car, took a while searching through my suitcase and briefcase in the dark, came up with my iPad, with the confirmation notice from Orbitz, but the deskman insisted that I would have to pay again, anyway, which I was unprepared to do because my original confirmation stated that there would be absolutely no refunds whatsoever. After going online in a futile effort to resolve this, I was exhausted by 3:00 AM and agreed to pay a second time just to sleep. As I was being booked -- miraculously-- my reservation was found.

was there for the IWF expo

The whole place reeked of pot smoke. Literally, every floor smelled of pot. The lobby, the stairwell, the elevator (which smelled like pot and sweaty people). I have traveled in Guatemala, Mexico, Morocco, Italy, Greece, Spain, France, Canada, and across the US 3 times, and this was the first time that immediately upon checking into my hotel I was overwhelmed with a desire to leave. I would never in a million years pay to stay there again.

Property and room were not what I expected, disappointing. Hotel was great, helpful and easy to deal with

In room 322, could hear person above stomping around all night and early morning, asked for a new room the man up front said they didn't have any empty rooms which I don't believe, the room was old and dated and dirty, when I left the hotel I noticed all my belongings smelled of cigarette smoke, the room must have been a smoking room at some point. The only thing good I can say that is not far from restaurants

Not a very clean room. It honestly seemed as if the bedding was the only thing that was cleaned after the last guests. There was a big chunk of hair right next to the fridge, I am not sure how someone can miss that. The staff was not bad though.

I could not stand with the smelling (soap) in the room.

Smelly, small rooms desperate for an update. Thin walls, loud halls. Avoid this place unless you're 20 years old and need a cheap place to crash after a night of partying.

Great hotel for the money, location, and using for a home base while spending your day vacationing. Bathroom and shower are small, the rest is fine. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.

It was totally unsatisfactory. Non-smoking room had burns on the furniture, the room smelled and had mildew in the rest room. I would not take my clothes off in this dump. I requested a refund and was denied. I gave the room to a homeless couple I hope they didn't catch anything.

Had a good stay friendly staff just a bad area of town

I was in town for dragon con , so to find a hotel that was close and affordable was godsend. The staff was great but the area at night wasn't the greatest. I would of love a better beds and a shuttle service to the downtown areas.

This particular hotel is questionable. I almost thought I was at someone's house. The room is an open floor and the hotel seems vacated. I started to ask myself where is the hotel. There is no real service to date for this location, etc. This hotel is very spooky.

Nothing special, but it was inexpensive and the staff was friendly.

If you are simply looking for a bed to sleep in for a night in downtown Atlanta where you don't have to pay $100+, then this may be good enough. However, if you are expecting anything more than that (such as clean, decent sized room with a working tv), try looking elsewhere. This is one of the cheaper options in downtown Atlanta, so don't expect much.
