This was, without a doubt, the hotel stay I've ever had, and as a military dependent and a military member myself, I've stayed in quite a few hotels. The rooms are spotless, large, and tastefully decorated. We were right next to the elevator but we never heard a sound; I swear the room was soundproof! The staff, especially the manager... More

The motel itself is OK. but a bit outdated. The bathroom was in dire need of remodeling. I read on here someone else talking about the "smokers room" on the 3rd floor. Of course, I was on the 3rd floor and sure enough, the hallway smells like a smokers lounge. I will give them 1 thing. It was one of... More

We stayed at this property a few weeks ago. Easy check in, clean but small rooms (even suites), nice staff, indoor pool (big time chlorine smell) and good breakfast. Really the only negative is that they are stingy on their towels. We had a family of 4 staying in our suite. First day 2 sets of towels, 2nd day after... More

We always stay in the Lake City Country Inn and Suites on our way to Atlanta. The rooms are very large and always clean. The staff is always professional and helpful. The rooms are very quiet and the beds are comfortable. My husband has a bad back and he is very particular about the bed he sleeps in. There are... More

We checked in late, about 9 PM with our 2 kids (7 and 1.5 years old) and were ready to get some rest after being in road. The hotel looks nice and guy at front desk seemed friendly, no complaints there. However, 3rd floor reeks of cigarettes and we had non-smoking room. When we walked in room it smelled clean,... More

Enjoyed our stay! Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! Klaudia, the manager, was very friendly and accomodating! My only negative was the hallway on the third floor smelled like cigarette smoke, although the rooms were non-smoking.

Staff were very nice. Hotel is right off the freeway and my room was on the freeway side. A bit noisy. Breakfast was not that good and the orange juice tasted watered down. I was disappointed with the pool. It was 3-5 feet deep and when I was there the hotel was filled with kids. There were 20+ kids jumping... More

A wonderful experience from the first phone call. I was making arrangements for a baseball team. We were welcomed with open arms(unlike some other places in the area). The hotel was current, clean and well maintained. We decided to go to the indoor hot tub at 11 pm. I took my bath towel with thinking there would for sure not... More

If you are traveling this is a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms with very comfortable beds. It's also located close to a lot of restaurants; some even give discounts if you show your room key. I would definitely stay here again. Rick
