This location was clean and comfortable. I loved the sliding glass door which allowed outside entrance and fresh air. I was very pleasantly surprised and will definitely return.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the hotel and room for what I paid. It is an old hotel that has not had any improvements made to it. It should be a $69 a night hotel not $183. I selected this hotel because it was the only one with a vacancy. I see why now. Next time, I will opt to drive back home in the same day rather than settling for something that was outrageously priced for what you got. I don't mind paying for something when I receive quality in return for what I pay.

What to expect.
- A rock hard bed (the flinstones slept in softer beds)
- Pillows made by Frito-Lay (my children gave this description, I brought my own)
- Toilet flushed lightly every 15 minutes (pretty annoying).
- Window AC unit. Lazy and schizophrenic (description given by a son with an ACT score of 31). Hard to turn knob to a comfortable temp. Not digital. Loud.
- Shower was loud. Air in pipes?
- Can hear traffic on the road even if room is not facing road. Room not well insulated.
- 16 year old kid did not recognize the microwave it was so old (turn knobs).

Notes:
- I chose second floor due to having sliding doors. Neighborhood not that nice.
- Take your own pillow. And enough motrin to make anyone pass out (sleep).
- Beds have plastic covers. Good for those that worry about bed bugs.
- I am severely allergic. Only a few hotels (at my price range have ever allowed me to wake up allergy free). Take your benadryl with you.
- Room was exceptionally clean. Was able to walk on carpeting without getting bottom of socks filthy dirty.
- Do not pay more than $49 for this room, or you will feel robbed. $39 would have seemed fair.
- Free wi-fi. Main reason I chose this place. Worked great. 2nd floor.
- Plenty of hot water for 3 showers in a row. No hair conditioner. No dryer.
- Room is smallest I have ever seen in my life. Not normal sized.
- I have reviewed many hotels room exceptionally well. The price of $49 was not worth the room. The managers are very friendly, which made it hard for me to give this bad review.

Room Tip: If this is for UGA trip, find a location closer to the school. I thought Athens was smaller and did...
