I stayed here for Dragon*con 2013. I didn't know I'd be able to go to it until a couple months before, and I was going by myself. Of course all of the under $150 downtown hotels were booked up. I figured I'd go with a less expensive chain hotel so I could spend whatever I needed to on transportation/parking. It worked out great.
A couple of the days, I took the free hotel shuttle to the airport and then rode the MARTA train up to Dragon*con. It was so convenient. Just know that where the shuttle drops you off at the airport is not where you will be picked up. There is a special little station where the local hotel transportation vans park. From the MARTA at the airport, follow signs to ground transportation for local hotels. The shuttle hours are from around 4:00am to 1:45am, and the MARTA train hours are from around 4:30am to 1:30am (it varies depending on days of the week) so plan accordingly. If you're going to the con and might be out really late, plan on driving to the con and paying for parking or plan on staying out so late that it becomes morning (like I did on Saturday night/Sunday morning).
The hotel room had a refrigerator and microwave which I was very happy about. It was clean. There were tons of cable channels. Free wifi. The staff I interacted with were nice and friendly and helpful. There are vending machines in the lobby, and the hotel is right across the street from a McDonald's and some other restaurants.
Yeah it's not super fancy, but all I really needed was a clean, comfortable, affordable place to sleep for a few nights, and this place was great. Hopefully next year I can get into one of the affordable downtown hotels so I'm in walking distance of Dragon*con, but if not, I would definitely stay here again.
