We stayed here as we passed through Georgia on the way to Orlando. Nice, clean room. Pool was nice. Very good breakfast and wi-fi was good. Will stay again on next trip through. Highly recommended. Friendly service. Clean lobby. Daughter says good spot for Pokemon Go if you or family play😜

Vicki was our attendant at check-in, at breakfast, and at check-out. She went out front and checked us out as we finished our coffee. Vicki went above and beyond. The facility is very clean and well kept. We sat by the outside pool in the courtyard at dusk. The drainage for the tub and toilet really is the only area... More

On the road driving to Port of Miami for a cruise. Drove 14 hours to get here so we were tired. No problems getting a room and breakfast was good as we got back on he road to the next BW at the Miami airport South.

Can't say enough nice things about our stay here. Baby grand piano in the lobby. Clean quiet comfortable room. Wonderful staff. Vicky was amazing. From dealing with her for check-in to dinner suggestions and tasty sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast. Will definitely use when we are in the area.

I've stayed here twice in nine months and have been very satisfied. The breakfast is far more than I have expected to receive included in the price. Rewards offers a fifty dollar gift card when you book a second visit.

Vicky prepares the breakfasts and her "killer" eggs are well known. They are worth the stay at the hotel. Hotel staff are very friendly. Hotel is super-clean and location was close to many area restaurants.

We were stranded in Macon with car problems for 3 days while repairs were made. My wife, me and a small dog.

The hotel says no smoking but the halls have an old stale smoke smell. The room was very warm even though the AC was set on 75. The hallways were like walking through the gates of hell it was so hot. You could feel a drastic difference in temperature going from the first floor to the second. The room itself... More
