We had to leave. The lock was broken, the property was in disrepair, the room had plaster and dirt all over it, and the manager refuses to refund us. We did not feel safe and immediately left for the Howard Johnson in Commerce.

This is a terrible place. This was my first and last time. Room eas not clean. We had skittles on the floor. We put the housekeeping sign out so the room can be clean and it was dirty after we return after 5 p.m. Room was the same way we left it. We paid for 2 nights not knowing it...

Rude desk clerk, not willing to accommodate a different room. First impression, door was open when I arrived. Filthy, Filthy, Filthy, See photos for all details. Reserved for two nights, did not stay after the desperate first night. Back seat of a junk car is better.

I have traveled in every state in the USA except North Dakota and this was by far the worst motel experience I have had. Walkway to room was so nasty that your shoes stuck to pavement almost making you trip trying to pick them up. When we first got in room,we had no power. The room was nasty. Nothing but...

From the minute we opened the door to the minute we shut it behind us, all our time there was negative. The person behind the counter (couldn't tell gender) never greeted us but gave us hand signals on how to get in the locked office. When I presented a printout of our reservation he/she never even glanced at it but...

We were late booking a room football game, and we knew it would not be the Hilton. When we first arrived, there was another guest stating that there were bugs in his room and he would not be staying. The first room I was given, reeked of some horrible odor. I felt like I could not catch my breath in...

The good: location was not bad, could walk to downtown The bad: don't know if you'd want to. Sketchy people hanging around the hotel. Was given a key to an occupied room at check in.

I have reserved a room using Hotels.com, but when I checked in, the lady said they don't acknowledge the this reservation so I had to pay it again. She also told me that Hotels.com will not charge me. However, on the second day, when I checked my credit card, I did charge twice. When I got back to the hotel,...

This is off the scale bad. Arrived for very late check-in. Good thing it was dark and I was tired cuz I would have otherwise slept in the car. Was traveling with fiancé and her daughter. They slept in their clothes atop the covers. Need I say more ?

Simple motel. Great water pressure, comfy beds, big, cushy pillows. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast bar includes muffins, fruit, coffee, and cereals. Room comes with small refrigerator and microwave, flat screen TV with HBO, Showtime, and wifi. Covers all the basics, and is walking distance to the Varsity, Saucehouse, and short distance to downtown Athens. Many rooms have 2 and...
