“Not What We Paid For!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2005

My wife had a business meeting in Macon and booked the room in advance online. The confirmation we received was for a king room with a sofa sleeper, fridge, and microwave. The price seemed high but fair for what we were getting.

THEN, we checked in. After waiting for nearly 10 minutes for the clerk to get off the phone we had to painfully endure his reenactment of the conversation with a bonus monolgue of why people are "dumb with directions".

He had obviously never checked in someone with an internet reservation. So, he fumbled around and cursed (G.D. - I hate it when people say that).

Completely exhausted from the day and the drive we walked in to what seems to be the smallest hotel room ever. The bed was not a king, not even a queen, but a full. There was no couch, no 'fridge, and no microwave.

The room was very hot when we walked in, keep in mind that this is mid-February. We turned the air conditioner on and left it on all night. The room never cooled down. Very uncomfortable.

We had forgotten our toiletries case. We called the front desk the next morning to see if we could get hold of some toothpaste and toothbrush. We were told no by the snappy morning clerk, "We don't do that!" I'm assuming she's not familiar with the signs in the bathroom announcing the service.

All in all, I give it a thumbs down, two thumbs in fact. I don't recommend this property at all. Try harder Comfort Inn!

My experience was on Jan. 2, 2005. This has to be the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. It was booked online and I based my selection on their self description. Don't believe anything it says. When we arrived the solitary desk clerk was half asleep. With bored indifference she gave me my room key. The exterior was littered with trash, the room was old, dirty, and they tried to cover it with some sweet smelling room freshener. The walls were so thin I could hear the children above me running back and forth until 10PM, and I didn't want to walk around in the room without my shoes on. And the complimentary breakfast
bar was pathetic. A couple of old pieces of fruit, some stale muffins, and not even any real milk or cream for your coffee. Just some powdered milk packets. Stay away from this one!!!

I made this reservation for 2 nights but only stayed for 1 due to the poor service and quality. The air conditioner in the room was broken and the sheets on the bed were blood-stained with hairs on them. The front desk refused to move us to another room and just handed us a new set of sheets. The continental breakfast was disgraceful and the entire hotel lobby was in desperate need of cleaning.

I will likely never stay at another Choice Hotel based on this experience.
