I stayed here with a friend while visiting another mutual friend who lives in Andersonville. It's a bright, well-kept little place with adequate amenities. I liked the key code entrances to both the inn and rooms - it definitely makes life easier not having to keep track of one more key/card.
The room was clean and cozy, with a very comfortable bed, and a modern and spacious bathroom. The room was a decent size, but unfortunately there is no closet - just a bar with some hangers in the corner - and just a few drawers. This wasn't a big deal for us, since we were only staying for two days. If you plan to stay longer, though, you may be a bit crunched for clothing space.
The kitchen was well-stocked with snacks and breakfast all day. There is a nice shared living room space. I didn't spend a lot of time there, but the friend traveling with me said the couch was cozy and wifi very convenient for getting a little work done.
One last note: They only have rooms with king beds. I was traveling with an old friend and we didn't mind sharing, but otherwise it's really more conducive to couples.
