Recent guest reviews

This hotel was gorgeous when it first opened. It is definitely showing signs of aging. Wallpaper is dirty, the carpet in the rooms and hallways needs cleaning. Items in the room are in need of repair for example shelf in closet was hanging down so I couldn't hang my clothes. The ironing board was broke so I used the bed to iron clothes. Water stains in the ceiling on the first floor. The hotel has changed drastically from the last time I was a guest must have new owners or management.

Checking in the staff insisted that my reservation was for a handicap accessible room. I said we don't need one, a standard room is fine. They insisted. Then upon checkout informed me my bill was $30 higher because it was a handicap accessible room on the first floor. Grrr. One evening we requested to sit in the breakfast area because our group of eight were cramped in the tiny lobby seating area. We were not allowed because "it was closed" but actually it was so one of the employees could sit alone and watch television. He was sitting in there for two hours. Must be nice to get paid for watching TV Leaky toilet, broken door lock, basic awful hotel experience

Room was just what I needed for a quick overnight stay in Macon.

bathrooms by pool very messy. other than that excellent breakfast choice and friendly staff.

Room 127 was ours on the ground floor near an exit. King size, non-smoking, 2 adults, 1 night with taxes, $87. CLEAN! So clean! Crisp, fresh, comfortable. Friendly staff. Plenty of variety at the (free) included breakfast. After reading lots of other motel/hotel reviews in this area (Macon, GA), I liked seeing the approximately 5' wrought iron fence around the perimeter of the parking lot.

Overall the hotel was nice. The rooms were great and well kept. Very roomy. However, we missed breakfast by 2 minutes and they refused to let us enter. Not very helpful or hospitable.

It was conveient right off the highway. There was a full hit breakfast in the morning . Everyone who worked there had excellent customer service . I had a super late check in due to a thunder storm , and I was not penalized. Check out is at 12 and it was quick and easy . If I travel through Macon again definitely would stay here again.

Staying here was a great experience. The room was plenty big, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. There was a good variety of food and they were all nicely labeled. The hotel was close to the freeway and easy to find.

This hotel was so bad that I don't even know where to begin. The pool said no glass in pool area on a sign but everyone was drinking glass bottles of alcohol, The breakfast was suppose to start at 7 am but still wasn't ready at 7:30 am and the staff was very rude.

stayed 4 nights, 3 days, had hot water 1 out of the 3 mornings, housekeeping didnt replenish any of my soap or shampoo, everything else was ok

Excellent, easy reception. Already had my reservation pulled up and room assigned. I had made the reservation about an hour prior. Friendly staff, everyone greeted me. Very nice breakfast buffet. [...]
