At checking in Rep was behind glass but I was stuck with 2 guys one with hospital ID. Kids also hanging outside. Rooms smell and dirty sheets with stains. Stains on ceiling and sheets. Holes in walls.

Room had a very strong smell like kerosene or some chemical. Only shut our door when away or when sleeping because of the smell and it making our eyes burn. I needed an extra towel but to get a third towel, they needed me to turn in one of the two provided towel--that's one per person. Towels were old and thin. The smoke alarm starting beeping about every 10 min indicating low battery, front desk said "they do that". Requested battery replacement. Left and came back about 10:00 pm smoke alarm now beeping every min. Front desk recommended we remove battery, did so but still beeped. Again no help from staff. We finally crawled atop furniture to reach and unwired to get the beeping to stop so we could sleep. Memorial Day weekend no vacancy found to move elsewhere. 😡😤

We found this hotel through The total to stay with taxes was $73. The room was updated and clean. The hotel has a small pool on the west side of the hotel, but we were too early in the season. We were told it is opened from mid-May thru October. It included a microwave and mini-frig. We found a great Mexican restaurant next door. Bonus! Great location off of I-75 and drugstores and other amenities were very close by. We may make it a point to stop here again next year.

Stayed at the Econo Lodge in Acworth, GA for an obstacle course race held in nearby Dallas, GA (Savage Race-highly recommend you try one!!). Upon check-in the lobby/breakfast area had a sort of "not clean" feel to it. Nothing inherently gross, just not that oddly inviting "clean" sensation you get in most hotels. Only stayed one night and was given a late checkout so I could grab a (much needed) warm shower after my race. Even that was only provided after it was confirmed I was a "Choice Hotels" member. Odd since I doubt they've been heavily booked, but whatever works. All doors are exterior facing, which should have been the first clue. The property looks like an aged hotel from the 1950s was refaced and propped up as a modern roadside crash pad. The room itself was "ok" at best. Carpeting looked newer but had a hole worn in it (maybe from a pet?), furnishings seemed cobbled together from a hotel/motel garage sale. Other fun discoveries were the switch for the heat lamp in the bathroom looking like something off of Fear Factor-go ahead, turn it on...we DARE you! And the door seemed to have been pushed in at some point, which wouldn't have been difficult since it seemed to have been re-purposed from an ancient double-wide trailer home. If I were with my wife and/or children there's no way we would have stayed. As I was solo, I checked the bed to ensure clean sheets, and figured I could make due for one night. Plus after driving 10+hrs and needing sleep, it was easier to stay than deal with changing locations. If I were still traveling with a band or em route to Spring Break with a bunch of college aged buddies, this would be fine. For the price, however, it wasn't. The rate should be no more than $50/night. The bonus is that it's close to I-75, there are lots of dining options nearby, and plenty of other places to earn your overnight stay as well.

Where to start. Booked a smoke free room and the carpet and blanket had cigarette burns. Mystery stains everywhere, cracks all over the ceiling, 2 lamps didnt work, smoke detector was on the table, light cover was falling off, ceiling had a hole where a light used to be and the ceiling was falling apart, and had huge cobwebs in the shower. Worst looking room i have ever stayed in. Put the "change bed linens" card on the bed cause the looked horrible with burn marks and various stains...came back that night and had the same bed linens still on the bed. Didnt even want to touch anything.

Close to the interstate. Have stayed here before and it was fine then. Still fine for an overnight. Esp after enduring that Atlanta 'jam'. Friendly welcome and right next door to a small shopping center and restaurants. Clean. Cold a/c. Fridge and micro. Nice pool. Park right outside of your room. Price was right. This is not an upscale chain; not a boutique. Just a decent older place to r&r. Usually free breakfast in a.m.

This place was a great price. The staff was amazing. Free breakfast. The rooms are bigger than normal. I would stay here again. Plus, it just felt comfortable. My only complaint is they didn't have Gideon's Bible in the room. The rooms looked brand new. It did have a pool, but we didn't get a chance to use it.

OK I am very picky when it comes to my hotels . I booked online back in July to come see the Braves play . I decided to just pay a low price this time . The pictures are a lie on the site . I wanted a top floor and they considered floor one the top . One of my request is to have top floor i always get it . Anyway we all were exhausted from driving sense 5 in the morning from Virginia . And wanted to rest before the game . Our room was nasty smelled musty and smoky , the bed had burn holes in it . there were dead fly's on the sink . yellow lamp shades . I was pissed . I said lets go . So I went to get my money back she gave it to me , but as I proceeded to tell her about the problems I had she didn't make eye contact had to force herself to say I am sorry . Just poor customer service . I never have to complain like this . Seriously she needed classes on how to treat customers . Come stay as you want but its false .

My mother and I arrived at 6:30 am on August 8, 2015. We were put in room G08. There was a strong odor in the room we attributed to cig smoke. We were sleeping in separate beds. At around 9:00 am I had awaken feeling like something was crawling on me. I thought I'd seen something on the bed but it was dark so I turned the light in and saw the bites on my hand. I pulled the curtain opened and there were bed bugs all over my pillow. I woke my mom up and she called the manager down. The manager came down and said the bugs probably came from someone coming from a taxi. We got our money back but they refused to reimburse us for the items we had to leave behind as well as the cloths we had to purchase to leave. I have 69 bites on my face, neck and arms. These are some of the pictures

We stayed 2 nights, which what was 2 nights way too long. Rooms weren't cleaned. Beatles everywhere in rooms. Staff let themselves in randomly without notice. Breakfast wasn't up to the standards of what was promised. No not recommend for your next stay.
