Need better pillows and blankets only had a sheet and the duvet with a blanket otherwise no complaints

Very clean and quiet and peaceful. Staff professional

Before we made the reservation we checked to see if the room had space for 5. The person on the other end of the line said they would have roll - away brought to the room. Upon arrival we learned that the Howard Johnson did not have roll away beds. The beds were small and hard. No place to put the 5th person. If you are only traveling with 3 persons this place would be acceptable.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Room was renovated and very clean. No weird smells or stains. The bed was really hard and the pillows were not the right size for a king bed. I slept ok but not great because the matress was very firm. It is also VERY well lit, so I felt safe walking around. Excellent choice for the price!

I loved the location very close to walnut ave, where all stores are located. Staff very good, however breakfast could be better.

The first room key card did not work so we were given a second room. The second room was suppose to be non smoking. We found this room very smokey. So we were given a third room. Upon opening the door to this room, we found it had not been cleaned and made up from the previous night. So we were given a fourth room. We found the carpet very dirty and the air very stale. At this point, I asked for a refund. They were very apologetic and said they would provide us a refund. We found another hotel close by for the night.

everything worked out well ,the room was cleaned well and it was a quiet atmosphere

The rooms are on the smaller size - cozy for a family of 4. Newer plasma/led televisions. Great location near many restaurant choices - we hopped on and off the e-way on a trip down to FL. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was nice, but needed to be skimmed. I am not sure if the filter could keep up, but I grabbed the skimmer and cleaned some good size bugs off the top. Otherwise, it was a nice stay and we plan to stop here again.

Room was quietly located above and away from the highway. Room was ordinary for a hotel room. Breakfast was lacking attention.

I was happy with my stay and that was mostly due to the friendly staff who helped me when I needed it. I came to Dalton to race the Carpet Capital 10 miler in Varnell. The Jameson was a little pricey but a safe place for a single woman. I chose this hotel because I wanted a microwave, fridge and coffee maker (I bring the strong brew) in my room to make my own food. I did eat some oatmeal from their breakfast bar which seemed adequate.My room was clean and comfortable. Mostly I was thrilled with the late check out granted me to accomodate my race schedule.

The staff was the friendliest we had ever encountered. The hot breakfast at our location was very good. This was our first stay at this chain of hotels, and we will be looking for this hotel when we travel again.

Everything was as expected. I checked in at 3 a.m. due to travel delays and the front desk person was there to quickly get me in my room. No problems. Plan to stay there again (this was my second stay in the past 6 months) when in the area.

The people at the front desk were very friendly and eager to please. The only real negative was the chair in the room was so nasty. Hadn't been cleaned in years, or so it looked. I wouldn't sit in it. My brother was with me and had another room and his chair was just as nasty. Something really needs to be done about that.

Everything as expected except that some of the equipment in the fitness center was broken. I paid a mid- to low range price and was well pleased with the hotel itself for that problem. But the equipment needs to be kept working.

The Hotel was very clean and comfortable and in a great location with nice resturants close by.

The free continental breakfast was very well run and very complete and got us back on the road in a timely manner.

At the end of a long day of traveling with our dog we were greeted with warm smiles, welcoming and friendly conversation and thoughtfulness with our pet. Our room was very clean, had everything we could want and was peaceful and quiet and a wonderful night sleep in an extremely comfortable bed. We will always look for a Jameson Inn when we travel in the future.

Dalton is a half way point for me on my way down to FL. I have tried several hotels in Dalton and this is by far the best for your money. They allow pets which was a requirement for me but the room did not smell like dogs nor was there any noise. Rooms were spotless - the air/heater was quiet - the breakfast was better then satisfactory. I recommend this hotel.

The room was large and clean. The breakfast was good. Overall a great place for the money.

This hotel was very good value, clean rooms. Breakfast could have had more options. Would go back.
