Nice clean modern hotel that rivals any mid-sized chain. But at half the price! We had a good sized room with a lovely king bed and a sofa bed. The interior and exterior of the building are well maintained. The pool looks very nice but it is currently winter. No complaints. Next time we go to Road Atlanta, we will... More

The Guest Lodge was pretty good. Room was clean. Sheets had a couple of stains as did one of the towels but that wasn't a big deal. The bathroom fan worked when it felt like it which wasn't often. Not a lot of TV channels but we weren't there to watch TV. The strangest thing was the multiple long brown... More

We noted it is across from the Law Enforcement Center, so it feels safer than some places. Bed was nice, clean room, television clear, WIFI worked and we were very pleased. Not the Ritz, but who can afford that?

The hotel is clean and rooms are spacious. The lobby is its best place to spend time. There is the fire in the centre of the room that create a beautiful atmosphere that avoid to remember the cold that there is outside. The hotel is far from UF ore downtown and it is better to have the car but you... More

Check in was good. Got to my room and there is a gap in the door - no door seal, air comes right through. Then the bathroom looks like it is going to fall a part. When I tried to access Netflix - since I have several hours with nothing to do - I recieved an error that the sight... More

Hi KurtD, Thanks for the constructive criticism. We feel that having critical access to internet is a higher priority for our guests than to be able to access Netflix. We went above and beyond, managed our bandwidth and unblocked Netflix for you. Sincerely, Jay S. More

We live in the area, but needed a place to stay for the night during some home renovations. We didn't need anything fancy and didn't want to spend a lot of money since were only really needed somewhere to lay our heads and grab a shower. The Guest Lodge was a good choice. The room was inexpensive, clean and comfortable.... More

Very nice. We came to see family, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Extremely comfortable bed and a great room. Double headed shower was an excellent touch. Got to use the meeting room. It was very convenient. Thanks.

Rooms were clean and nice and comfortable. But was not impressed at all with the Continental Breakfast. Not much variety and the waffle maker was not clean enough to make a waffle. Overall it was ok for the price.

Clean room. Older Flat screen tv, with plenty of channels. Refrigerator, but no microwave in room. Comfortable King bed. Good towels. Plenty of water pressure. Good variety for breakfast. Friendly desk staff. We would stay here again, if in the area.

Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a little disappointing (no sausage, bacon nor eggs), but ok. Plenty of fruit, yogurt, muffins and waffles. The grounds and facility were well maintained and nice. Overall it was a good value for the price. I would stay there again.
