We hadn't made reservations for the night because we were traveling to Florida and wanted to drive as far as possible before we stopped for the night. Once we decided to stop, every hotel was completely booked. We called every hotel that showed up on our GPS within a 30 mile stretch along I-75. Finally, Magnuson Hotel said they had... More

Dear tomwyant, Oh boy! I really wish we could have scored 5 but you are right, we were busy in the morning but I can guarantee you she was at top of her game and it is during the challenging times when we enjoy our jobs the best. I really appreciate you giving us the chance to surprise you and... More

When I am in the area for business, I usually stay at this hotel. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating they go above and beyond to ensure I have pleasant stay. Hotel was clean, comfortable and breakfast had plenty of options. Would definitely continue to stay here.

Pretty good overall, but not as good as we expected from a hotel with a 4.1 rating. A bit dated style wise, curtains and fixtures were old. Small things like ripped shower curtain, toilet seat too small for the toilet, furniture not dusted, stained bed skirts, TV stand too low prevent us from giving it an excellent rating. But bigger...

I usually travel to the area for business. I need a place that fits my budget that my company gives me. I found that this place was fantastic. The hotel staff was more than helpful when I needed a shaving kit that I forgot at home. They really went out of their way to make me feel like home. Neil... More

Good hotel for travelers, short stays at an economical price. Rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. Some things might be a little worn but overall it was a good stay. Breakfast was pretty much the standard thing for this class of hotel...make your own waffles, etc. Pool was clean but pretty busy in the evening. Waffle House and... More

This place is a nightmare!!!!! When I checked in and took a look around I saw that it was a dingy little motel but I needed a cheap place for a 2-day visit to Macon, my 1st mistake. I had housekeeping change my sheets because I saw a drop of BLOOD on the white sheets. When I asked how often... More

The hotel and the room were clean. I was pleasantly surprised considering where the hotel was located. It almost looked abandoned. However when I got in my room....comfort. The staff was pleasant as well.

We came to this hotel based on a Priceline deal of sub-$50 per night. We were here on a night traveling to Savannah and we stacked in with three kids. It was clean, quiet, service was good and the breakfast was simple. What more should we ask for?

Everyone was very nice. I loved the shower head. It was relaxing. Floors were not clean so we kept our shoes on. Bed was clean and pillows were very comfortable. Bed was a little hard but we slept ok. Overall for a night or two not too bad.
