This is my second visit to Macon in recent weeks. On my first trip, I stayed on the West side of town which was not convenient to the downtown area. On this trip, I chose the Hampton Inn near I-75 north of the city. It is an easy trip to the downtown area, taking no more than 10 minutes. More importantly, it is a good hotel! The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good and has good choices. There is a nightly reception providing light snacks and beer/wine. The rooms are clean and well provisioned. If business calls me back to Macon, I'll stay here.
