We stayed from Tuesday June 26 through Friday June 29th and had two one bedroom suites for 5 people. The rooms were clean and well appointed. They could use a squirt of bleach around the tub edges. Full sized fridge was nice for snacks and drinks. All the seating was comfy. The beds, including the pullout sofas, were comfortable and had nice bedding and plenty of pillows to choose from. The customer service was super from the cleaning staff, to the front desk and food service workers. We were situated on the first floor, so had no view.. but there wasn't really a view to be had anyhow. The hotel is on the outer edge of a huge shopping complex, backed up to a Hooters Restaurant. We did not have any negative issues with Hooters. The location gave us plenty of dining options as well as a Super Walmart to pick up assorted items we didn't want to or couldn't bring on the the plane in our carry-ons. The free breakfast was awesome, not just a continental, and included hot eggs and sausage, waffles, fruit and assorted breads, pastries and beverages. One other great benefit to travelers staying mid-week is the free dinners on Mon, Tues and Weds, I think those are the days. We missed all but Weds night's barbecue and it was good; not great, but nice after a full day of sightseeing and a big Southern lunch in Columbus. They also had a free wine and beer reception each night that we were there.
Proximity to Sand Hill at Fort Benning for Turning Blue ceremony was about 15/20 minutes, all highway. Graduation at The National Infantry Museum's Soldier Field took a tad bit longer to get to bc our GPS did not send us via the highway. The distance to Hartsfield-Jackson Intern'l Airport was about 1.5 hours and we encountered very little traffic the entire time we were there.
The only negative was that the pool was closed for our entire stay... something to do with the water quality. We booked the hotel bc it had a pool; this was a MAJOR disappointment. We were told we could use the pool at the hotel next door, but that was closed, too, the evening we wanted to use it. Georgia temps were in the high 90s and 100s that week.
Very good value for the price. Would stay again.
