We arrived very late just stopping over on our way to Georgia with our three kids. Check in was efficient, we got up to our room though and we were overwhelmed by the stale smell. We turned on the air conditioner but it didn't help. In the morning tried to connect to the wi-fi, but weren't able to, even asked... More

This is the best location and priced hotel for our trip to visit our daughter in college. This was our third time staying here and each time the service and rooms are wonderful. The best part is breakfast. Hot oatmeal, chicken patties, biscuits, gravy, are just our favorites. I also enjoy the real plates, silverware and mugs, instead of plastic.

Hotel is right off the highway, staff is friendly and check in was quick. Breakfast was adequate. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. A good place to stay. Only problem there are few choices for walking to a restaurant.

Everything about this place was perfect! When you walk in its beautiful. The decorating was warm and we were instantly greeted with a smile. They were friendly to me my husband and my baby daughter.

We really like Hampton Inns and I could see little difference between this Country Inn and suites and the Hampton we stayed in the night before except the price. Bath nice and clean, room clean and a breakfast similar to the day before. Called the reservation line but got the room for a few bucks cheaper at the desk.
