Granted, we requested a smoking room so we knew it wouldn't be the best of their rooms but, my goodness. The many, many burns on the very old, frayed blanket really should be replaced. That, in & of itself, leaves a bad impression without even looking around the rest of the place. The cold water squirting out of the cold... More

We are here now and are only staying because it is too late to go somewhere else. Let's just say I would rather sleep in the car. The room was musty and paint was peeling. I slept on top of the sheets after I took off the stained duvet.

Management is not so friendly, however the desk clerk Jennifer made the stay very pleasing with her great personality and people skills. While being put down by management she showed no signs of agitation. She was very informative about the hotel and the area. I give the hotel a 10 because of the staff.

Checked into the first room and it reeked of mold and meldew. There was no smoke detector and the bathroom was horrible. The fridge was filthy and the stains on the sheets. So the front desk moved my friend and I to the neighboring room. The smell was a little better but there were water stains on the walls and... More

The place is over priced for what is provided. The nonsmoking room smells like a bar. There were bugs in the shower. The water ran all night in the tub. The sheets were clean. The towels appeared to be clean. The beds were comfortable. It's is an old place in need of a lot of maintenance work.

The front desk personal was very friendly (2 young women). The room was disappointing. For advertising "newly renovated", maybe they should specify what was renovated. The bathroom had mildew and open areas around bath tub facets. It also smelled very musty and the air conditioning was not working very well. Doesn't appear that there is must care here for what...

This was by far the worst hotel/motel I've ever stayed in! I can't believe Choice allows this! The first room we went to ... the bed was HORRIBLE!It felt like we were sleeping on rocks, and NO SMOKE ALARM! We moved to another room after I complained about the bed and smoke alarm. In the next room, the beds were... More

For the money you pay a night to stay here is a bit much. The showers have mild and mildew. The room is very dusty and outdated... I will not be coming back here...to top it off. You can't get a refund after mins...I'm highly piss!

Everything was perfect. My wife planned the trip, lt was a passage, so didn't know what to expect. Couldn't complain about anything, They made it very comfortable and accommodating for my family. Thank you again, for the good service. It means the world to me. We were very tired from our trip and found the hotel to be very comfortable... More

On my return trip from Florida, I picked the Econlodge on I475 Exit 3 at Macon Georgia an overnight stay since it was pet friendly. Chiqueta, the receptionist, was a professional who processed my request both efficiently and with great knowledge and attention to my needs. She did not a have room on the first floor but we did have... More
