This is an old, tired motor lodge. The furnishing, carpets, walls, fixtures, etc. all need to be replaced. In fact, the whole property needs to be completely renovated.

The rooms at this hotel was very clean would stay again

The online pictures are not accurate and make it seem like a much nicer place than it really is. However, the staff was cooperative and allowed me to check out and find another hotel.

Nice location, good parking, very helpful staff. Had problems with the key card; no stopper in the sink.

The property was old and ok. Everything was clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The front desk person was rude. The room was super basic with outside doors. We were on a cross country trip and this was the 2nd most expensive room we paid for and it was the absolute worst. Do not recommend and will not stay here again.

The price was right, and I didn't have high expectations for what I was paying. However, when I arrived there were a group of men being rowdy and singing loudly outside at 10pm that other customers also complained about. When I got to my room and got settled, there was a couple having a loud and violent fight in the hallway. Otherall, this location didn't feel safe, and I won't be staying again.

Like so many hotels these days, it’s a refurbished job. Nicely done, but of course you can still tell. Staff was nice and friendly and willing to help. I’d stay there again.

Omg this hotel. The tv didnt work at all, just said no signal. Was going to call the front desk but of course there was no phone. This was by far the loudest hotel I have ever stayed in, you can hear normal conversations right through the wall. I am still sore from the cement block they called a bed.... we got no sleep whatsoever. But the mexican restaurant you can walk to next door was delicious so... there is that...

Thanks guys s shorted me 2 days. A. D then told em y'all would put the full amount of on to my account

Everything was great till last night they had a bunch of loud noise till 3 or 4 and I called office and they never did anything about it and I e paid 1000$ staying here 7069618471

Nice clean place and the staff are really nice . Room service and Breakfast is great that's lady's

Nice enough. Comfy beds. Nothing fancy. Pay online, it’s cheaper than waiting to pay at the hotel.

Close to UGA campus. Breakfast was not that great. Coffee was awful tasting.

Hotel was conveniently located for my stay. Staff was very helpful and friendly and my room was very clean. Breakfast was just right for me.

I realize the property is old so I was apprehensive about staying here. The staff was awesome and we even received a snack bag, which was so great and thoughtful. The room decor is somewhat dated, but overall the room seemed clean. We slept well too. Overall a pleasant stay

The location was overall clean and well maintained. The facilities were in good repair throughout. The staff was overall cordial. During check - in the focus was more on security, making sure drivers license, credit card for incidentals, etc, was gathered as opposed to lauding what the hotel offered such as pool, high quality continental breakfast, clean rooms with wi-fi and other features to highlight. Check out was at noon, however the hotel staff will start knocking on your door just after ten to see when you plan to check- out. The breakfast was fabulous, the room was clean and odor free with an adequate number of supplies.
