We stayed here one night and were very pleased. The room was large, the building looks new and the front desk was friendly. The breakfast area is very confusing as everything is up against the short wall with the exception of the coffee. People were standing 3 deep reaching for things. Even the 2 small trash bins are in the... More

The place was extremely clean and the staff was very courteous and helpful. George at the front desk helped us find some needed medical supplies and made some excellent recommendations for dinner.

Room was spacious, temp controls on the wall, plenty of water pressure even on the fourth floor. Breakfast included hot sausage and bacon and scrambled eggs as well as the usual cold cereal and yogurt. Oranges in the lobby are a cute touch. WiFi signal strong, although somewhat spotty speeds during my visit. Hotel is located in a business park,... More

Stayed for two nights while I was in the area on business. Hotel was clean, and staff was friendly and professional. Rooms were above average in the cleanliness department.

What a great hotel to stay in pre-cruise! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is well kept and inviting. The bed was super comfortable and the room a great place to relax. It was a quiet place, with little outside noise. The wifi and breakfast a definite plus. I will definitely return on my next visit!

Large room, friendly staff, free parking and really good value for money. If you are a large family ask for room 304 or simmilar and you will not be disappointed. If going back we most sertainly will choose this place again.

Stayed here December 30 and 31st. Tons of Mississipi and Georgia tech fans checked in for the bowl game. Hotel staff handled the load efficiently and were very courteous and helpful. Thought maybe with all the people motel would get a bit noisy - but we enjoyed a very pleasant and quiet stay.

Hotel is quite far away from everything, university is close but that is about it. Hotel is clean and well taken care of and staff is very nice. Only problems are that there is no hot tub, the pool is freezing and lastly the internet is also horrible. I would recommend staying elsewhere.
