Process for check in and out was smooth, and we needed to get out early since we had appt (with Mercer college.) Nothing super over the top, but clean and working HV/AC, lamps, frig, etc. Highlight was breakfast- substantial real food, clean, with very friendly and professional staff to help get us fed. THANKS

I read some of the nasty comments about this location, luckily I did not believe them. This facility was clean and hospitable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will certainly return on our next trip.

The beds were fairly new and they were comfortable, if it wasn't for that we would have been extremely unsatisfied. There was a bad odor as soon as you walked into the lobby and in the room as well. It smelled like stale smoke and something else that we didn't recognize. The lobby and hallways need new paint and carpet.... More

We stayed in Macon in order to attend a ceremony at Warner Robins AFB. It was a perfect choice for that purpose. The greatest strength of this hotel was the breakfast hostess, Vicki. I've stayed at plenty of hotels that offered free breakfast, but never one that had such an attentive hostess. It was as if Vicki made it her... More

This was a good place to stay for the night. The room and bed were very nice as well. I really would not recommend this hotel for a long visit. When I first arrived at the desk, the person behind the counter wasn't talking business friendly to another guest. This was a non-smoking facility but when I arrived all I... More

The food was awesome and the room was awesome. Vicki did a fantastic job keeping breakfast stocked. They had eggs, sausage, biscuits, waffles, gravy, fruit, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, and pastries, drinks they had orange juice, apple juice, milk, water and the all important coffee. I loved it all was great.

Stopped here for an overnight on my way down to Florida. Check in went smoothly, and while the lobby did have a slightly odd smell, my room was fine. I travel with my small dog, so there is an additional fee for this hotel, as with all Best Westerns. Left the building to go get some food, and saw multiple... More

The room was clean & convenient for an over night business trip with a microwave & mini fridge. The Free Breakfast was really good too & enough choices to pick from. It was a little disappointing not being able to get a late check out but Will for sure stay there again on my next business trip or passing through.
