Reviewed April 21, 2013

We frequently stay at Hampton Inns because of value and overall quality. We checked into the hotel and were put in a room in the back of the hotel, even though the property did not seem to be full. The problem with this location is there are train tracks very close, and the noise bothered us several times during the night. We did not sleep well. Also, this is an old facility with outdoor access, which is a feature I am not really fond of. The room was OK, and the breakfast was fine. Sorry, but we would not stay here again. Downgraded review due to sleep problem.

Room Tip: Be sure to not let them put you in the back!

We were the 407th Hampton Inn built (June 1994) to then Brand Standards. We will be opening a new Hampton Inn & Suites in Cordele during the summer of 2014. Our designated pet rooms at this time are on the back side of our Hampton Inn because of some guests having allergy problems and I apologize if the location wasn't the best. Thank you for staying with us and for your comments regarding your stay.

We stayed here and found the staff to be very helpful. The room was impeccable and the breakfast had a good selection. Excellent restaurants, including Malone's and Bonefish Grill are within easy driving distance. I left my ipad on the bed and we called - the maid turned it in and the staff mailed it to us. What a relief! We will definitely stay here again.

This hotel site was very clean, quiet, and a comfortable place to stay. We were traveling with an animal which is always a challenge, but not at this site. We did have a first floor room and the door opened to the outside for easy movement with the animal. This motel is older but well maintained. There is not an elevator but two floors, so if stairs are a problem this is not the hotel for you unless you can check in early enough to get a ground floor room. This site is close to restaurants and easy to access from the interstate. The breakfast was very good with protein choices as well as make your own waffles. The breakfast room staff was very attentive and it was well stocked and clean. We will stay here again as we travel through Georgia.

Love the pet friendly policy here. Have stayed here three times and all were excellent, friendly staff, great breakfast. Several good restaurants nearby. South Georgia can be iffy at times, but not here. Highly recommend.

Room was nice enough, but the bathroom was gross. There were long black hairs in several places on the floor and no one in my family has long, black hair. It looked like it had not been swept. Of course, then we wondered if the rest of the floor had been cleaned.

A nice classy room with nice appointments and no stale smoke odor with cigarette burns in the carpet, comforter, etc. The "rare" hotels that allow smoking are few & far in between. We are Diamond Elite members of various hotel groups due to our work requiring 100+ overnight stays annually. Normally you will get the worst room, with the oldest mattress and smelly upholstery and dirty air vents just because you are a smoker. I understand their are many irresponsible smokers that do burn counter tops, carpet & bedding; however I choose not to do that in my car or home & would like accommodations that are as nice. I have checked in & right back out in 10 min. when a hotel offers that to us as a thank you for our Diamond status. This was a really nice contrast to those old experiences. This will be our permanent Cordele, GA hotel, THANKS!

Typically when traveling to North Carolina, I stay overnight in Macon, this year, I decided I would give Cordele a try and was pleasantly surprised. Although the rooms are outside access, which I don't like, but the rooms were clean and updated. The staff was very nice upon my arrival and my departure. The afternoon "snack" was great as always! The breakfast was ok, not as good as I have become accustomed to when staying at a Hampton, but it was filling and there was a great selection of items. The pool was clean and inviting but the 30 degree temps kept me from taking a swim. Nice hotel!!!

Room Tip: The further away from the train tracks the better!!!!
