Perfect place to be near the square in Decatur. Staff is first rate and rooms top quality. I had a problem with central reservations and Mike, the General Manager, picked up on that and initiated an email with the fix. We will be back!

I was greeted by Roger as soon as I walked in the door and received a warm Georgia welcome. Check in was easy and he did a great job telling me about the hotel amenities as well as pointing out his local favorites on a map of Decatur. The room was clean and fresh and the bed was very comfortable.... More

The staff is completely new. The overall feeling of the facility and staff is greatly improved. Our room was well decorated, very clean, and quite nice. While there isn't "free" cookies and coffee, I will take... More
