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

Motel was clean, that's nice, been all over, Nita and Pat (the owners) are very nice people and the housekeeper, Alice, is really GREAT at her job. A laid back kind of place, no noise which made resting a very pleasant experience! Pat, Nita and Alice are great people and cared about making our stay very comfortable (which it was).... 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

The Western Motel in Folkston is really starting to show it's age. The bed has seen it's better days and was in need of replacing. The carpet and furniture also showed signs of wear and tear. The micro/fridge was in good shape and the room was pretty clean. If you are staying in Folkston, the Western is the best bet... More

For this to be Folkston's newest hotel, I found it to be poorly furnished. The mattress/box spring was in terrible condition, ~ it looked as though it had been pulled from a trash pile! We disinfected and cleaned the room before we felt comfortable using the restroom or sitting on the beds! Would I stay here again? Absolutely not!!!

The motel was more like one of those extended stay motels. The beds were terrible. Dirty carpet, stains on bathroom walls and the continental breakfast is fine if you like prepackaged bear claws. The coffee may have been OK but both pots were empty and there was no one around to make more. I waited for five minutes then left.... More
