“Our regular place to crash on the way to Mississippi”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Twice a year, we make a trip to North Eastern Mississippi to visit my Mother in Law. Each trip, we stop half way at this hotel. Why here? It's clean, the service is fantastic, the complementary breakfast is pretty good and always gets us ready for the 2nd leg of our trip. We've been here so many times that they're beginning to recognize us! We truly enjoy spending the night here. Oh, and did I mention the comfortable beds which are really nice after driving 7 hours.

Room Tip: We always get a suite and like the 3rd floor. 2 TV's and really quiet.

We were traveling to Georgia and wanted to stop half way. On a whim we picked this hotel. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the room, and it was the cleanest bathroom in a hotel that we have seen. Comfy bed, friendly staff, good coffee in the common area. They have the kind of coffee creamer I buy at home! Sad to say that the breakfast room had not opened when we left for Georgia, they were running a little per the front desk. I would like to have tried it out so that I could add it to the review. Very good experience, would definitely stay there again. It is right next to a Cracker Barrel, and a family owned seafood restaurant called Crystal River is across the road.

When we return to a hotel or restaurant one can know it is good. We keep returning to this hotel on our way down to Florida and on our way back. We just feel so comfortable here. Easy to get to, quiet, very well managed, pleasant and helpful employees, very good breakfast, etc. The hotel is always clean with very comfortable beds. On our recent trip earlier this month, we found our SUV's ac needed to be charged if we were going to be comfortable in the warmer weather of FL. The evening of November 2nd, we stopped at the front desk and asked the young lady if she had any suggestions of who we could take it to in the morning. She quickly went to her computer and came up with a repair garage, and ran a computer print of the name of the business, address and phone number. We were very pleased the next morning, a Saturday, to find the business not too far down the road and within a couple hours we were back on the highway with our ac fully charged at a reasonable rate. I am so sorry I do not remember the front desk girls name. What more businesses need is the good customer service that this hotel offers.

We visited family and stayed at this hotel for two nights. The room was clean and a very good value for the money. We have stayed in other national brands represented here in Dothan over the years. All were comparable on facility and hospitality, but the cost of the room at this location was 30 to 40 dollars less than the others. The indoor pool and spa added to the value. We ewill use this hotels from now on on our visits.

This hotel is a great place for a family to stay. It was clean, quiet and easy access. The breakfast is wonderful and the staff is very friendly. Have stayed here multiple times and never had a single problem. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the Dothan area. The indoor pool is great for young kids.

Stayed here one night with my husband and teenage daughter with a king bed and sleeper sofa. The king bed was in a separate room with a door and its own tv. The living area also had a tv that my daughter could use. Very spacious room although with the bathroom being right in the middle you could hear all the activity going on in there which sometimes can either wake people up or be embarrassing, but that sometimes tends to happen in any hotel room or setup. The mattress on the sleeper sofa was nothing but springs and uncomfortable so we made a makeshift bed on the sofa itself. The breakfast was so-so. The staff was very friendly though. It had an indoor and pool and hot tub that we used as well. Nice area. Close to many stores and restaurants.

I had to book a stay last minute for a week in the Dothan area for a funeral for a family member. The manager was so helpful in booking and the suite turned out to be perfect for our needs. The hotel is clean, employees are friendly, great location (near airport), great indoor pool (which my kids loved). Also Publix supermarket next door is great and with a fridge in the room we were able to have some food available at all times. Great hotel and staff.
