We spend two nights every year in Valdosta because it is a stop on our snowbird drives between Wisconsin and Florida. We are seeking only a clean, comfortable and attractive room to get a good night's sleep, and we have come to the conclusion that the Kinderlou offers the best room and experience for the lowest price. The front desk... More

We arrived at Kinderlou after a traumatizing attempt to stay at another local hotel (cockroaches!). What a relief to find our room at Kinderlou so squeaky clean. There was a bad smell to the place, as mentioned by other reviewers, but once we went nose blind to that our stay was pleasant. We did not get to visit the pool... More

I can hear semis on the interstate. I had a lot of difficulty with the tv. The beds are soft but the pillows are half sized. Definitely needs upgrading. There's a funny smell once you enter the building. Probably old carpet. I'm not too sure about the cleanliness yet.

I thought the hotel was very nice. It was clean, friendly and comfortable. It gave me a very old and rustic feeling that Georgia has to offer. I do recommend staying here for a couple days if you are in the area. It is well worth the good price and a good location.

We stayed 2 nights and I was very pleased with the place. The staff was friendly, the room was clean & quiet, beds comfortable and we was surprised with all the amenities. The TV had several channels to choose from. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer and iron/ironing board, and free wifi....everything you need. Even the... More

We were on our way to Florida and stopped at a rest stop to pick up the motel/hotel coupon books. As I was flipping through the usual brand name hotel/motel chains I came across the Kinderlou Inn. I had a look through trip advisor and that cinched the deal we would try this Inn. We had a very quiet king... More

This hotel is in a great location right off Exit 16 of I-75. It's an older property, but it's well maintained and is a great value! It's much larger than it appears from the front - there are multiple buildings and much more property behind the check-in building. It would be a particularly good place to stay for family reunions... More

We stayed here several times years ago when it was a Clarion, but the last time we had stayed there, the place was starting to fall apart, we had a very uncomfortable room. Now that it's under new ownership, we gave it another chance and were pleasantly surprised for how nice it was at such an inexpensive rate. Room was... More

The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The staff friendly. I would go again. There Is a steak house on the property. The food was delicious. The prices very reasonable. I paid under $12 for a surf and turf off the lunch menu. The portions a decent size.:-):-):-):-)

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel for a college golf tournament. Very nice and well kept. Never felt unsafe. The girl behind the counter was very polite and helpful. Short drive from golf course. Would recommend to friends and family.
