The large sign on top of the office says $35 but that isn't the case. If you want to have a supposedly refurbished non-smoking room in building A, you have to pay $45 before taxes. A smoking room in building B is $40. This building hasn't been remodeled. The room that I got in building A had been refurbished with... More

I have made the Jolly Inn my 1/2 way stop between Naples, Fl & Calhoun, Ga. I have stayed at this motel for at least 10-12 times. I have NEVER seen one bug much less the dreaded bed bug or roach! I can't understand why people are always dissing this place and making false allegations that I cannot substantiate. It... More

We stopped at this hotel after a long day at the race track. On a budget, We were just looking for somewhere we could get a shower and a little sleep. Of course we didn't expect much judging by the price but they had a few signs on the interstate stating "newly renovated rooms" so we gave it a shot.... More

My disabled son and I stayed in the Jolly Inn one night on our way to North Carolina. The lady at the desk told me she had a newly renovated room. The room was incredibly filthy. The sheets had not been washed, there were big spots that I knew what they were, pubic hairs on the sheets, stained coverlet. It... More

Our first room, upstairs, in the back building, was horribly unbearable ! We couldn't even walk two feet into the room, without the dog & foot ( and yes, we are pet owners,but didn't have or pets with us ) stench, blasting you, back out the door ! That room was totally rancid ! Went back downstairs. Listened to the... More

We had to stop because we were exhausted from driving and there were no rooms anywhere. The next morning there were cockroaches on the wall and the water was brown from the faucets. I do not recommend this hotel.

The Jolly Inn has billboards along I75 with a price of $35. but the actual price is $52. The room was missing the smoke detector, I could not get hot water in the shower but the sink had hot water, the hole in the wall between the bath & bed was patched with plywood, and I had to pay a... More

Very decent price. WiFi did not work, our room was out of range.The HBO was unwatchable, picture distorted. There was a nice sized refrigerator. The bathroom walls were filthy. Less than an hour's clean-up would have completely transformed this room. Very friendly front desk staff.
