We needed a staging pad for a visit to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. This was an OK hotel but overpriced for what it is. It's more of a $60 hotel than a $90 hotel. The Okefenokee is pretty cool, though, with lots of wading birds and gators.

While in town for the funeral of my father, we chose this hotel as it was closest to the cemetery. We paid for 3 rooms for our party of 9 people. In the rooms we found a half empty beer bottle on the floor between the beds; the floors were half vacuumed at best; trash in the dresser drawer; and... More

A stay at the Western Motel is at least acceptable now that they have done some updates to the rooms. The carpet and beds are new and my room was clean. The bathrooms still need an update which is being worked on from what I was told. The price is still a little steep for what you get but you... More

If you want to stay in Folkston, then the western is the best for the price. The place is just a little run down and it stinks but its clean and the owner is very very friendly. We stayed because its just a short drive to the Okefenokee swamp. For the price this guy charges for a room, its a... More

Past two decades of enjoying the glamour of business travel, I've seen a lot of bright lights, big cities, and business hotels. On a value per dollar basis, the Western Motel is easily tops,room was very clean and comfortable, the beds were also beyond "motel quality." Cleans sheets, comfortable pillows, . Great all around, aside from the friendly and hospitable... More

We booked 6 rooms at this motel the week of May 10th to May 17th and we very pleased with our stay. The staff members were all very hospitable & gracious. Our stay was peaceful & they had new mattress delivered during our stay which made it all the better. After visiting with a number of the locals we learned... More

This motel provides fine basic accommodation. It was clean, well lit, spacious. quiet enough,had comfortable beds, and everything worked as it was supposed to. The staff was helpful and friendly. It is a good place to stop prior to going to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. We awoke well rested and relaxed.

My wife and I stayed in Folkston to do some train watching and visit the Okefenokee swamp. Check in went smooth and the owner was very nice and helpful. The motel needs some repairs and updates but it did what we wanted which was sleep. There were no bugs and the overall experience was ok. We thought it was a... More
