“Strange Smell In Room”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Stayed for one night last month, had a room on the first floor. When we walked in the room had an overpowering smell. I couldn't put my finger on it but I see other reviewers had the same issue. Other than that the room was clean, front desk friendly, and breakfast was just fine. We checked out and went to the Comfort Suites the rest of the week. I don't know if its a musty smell, or something used in the construction of the building but its very odd?

I really want to give an excellent review of this hotel, but the smell in the lobby and in the rooms is overpowering. I overheard someone mention the smell as musty. I can't pinpoint it, but that may be it. We also stayed in this hotel last year and the smell was strong then as well. It isn't something I got use to during my stay, definitely wouldn't bring my babies here to stay, and will be trying another hotel in town on a future visit. One reviewer mentioned that there was no ventilation in the bathroom and that is true.

Also, one of the side doors was propped open for a full day during my stay...This made me a little nervous as I thought people were not allowed to enter without a key except through the front entrance.

OTHERWISE, the hotel is great for it's level. I always inspect rooms for cleanliness when I arrive and I found my room/bathroom clean and well appointed.

Plenty off towels. Too. Is clean. Lots of breakfast options but most are in pre-packaged bags. The eggs and sausage were good. OJ is also good. Lots of workers seem to use this hotel. Front desk was not very friendly.

This is one of the nicest, well kept, modern Best Westerns we have stayed at. Friendly pleasant, helpful staff, large comfortable rooms and bathroom. I can't think of anything negative at all. We would highly recommend staying here.

We stay at Best Westerns when we travel because of past histories and this one did not disappoint. This is a newer hotel and everything showed it. We had a ground floor room and it was very large. The pool is out back and the water was wonderful. The room was quiet and the beds probably the most comfortable we found on the whole trip. Breakfast had a good assortment of items and was open at 6am which gave us the ability for an early start home. Definitely a great place to stay.

Just returned from a month on the road. This hotel was one of the nicest I stayed at. Was not expecting such a luxurious hotel near the Okephenokee Swamp. Not only was the front desk management and staff helpful, but I was impressed by the beautiful choice of carpets, fixtures, and overall design choices in the room. Breakfast was also more than usual and nicely done. The location was perfect, close to swamp parks and a good crossroad stop before heading in new directions. The room rate was below what I would have expected. If I need to cross Georgia again, this hotel will be a definite stopping place.

Room Tip: Traveling solo, I usually opt for a first floor room near the lobby. It was very quiet both outsid...

First appearances of a motel can be deceiving. When we pulled up we thought it looked very nice, exterior was well maintained as was the lobby and hallways. The desk clerk was friendly and I was looking forward to getting to the room. Upon opening the door we noticed a musty smell, like the room had been shut up for quite some time with no air circulation. The room was very clean and appeared well maintained and so we thought turning on the air or fan might dissipate the odor. Well it did get a little better but never really went away. Not something you like to wake up to, well we toughed it out and left a "room note" that is supposed to be turned into management. In the morning I noticed what appeared to be a mold like substance on the bathroom walls, it was high so not noticeable just scanning the room. By the way there was no ventilation fan in the bathroom either. Breakfast area was clean and orderly and the food offering was good. My recommendations are install some ventilation fans, air out rooms and provide a bottle of Fabreze for the cleaning staff carts.
