“Very bad experience.”
Reviewed March 5, 2010

We spent one night at this hotel on the way home from Florida. The room was clean but there were some issues that force me to write a bad review. #1 The bed was very hard. Uncomfortable hard. #2 When you closed the drapes, it was light in the room. My husband joked we could play cards. #3 The fridge ran all night long & was very noisy. Between #1, 2 & 3, it was after 3am before I finally fell asleep. #4 The shower was cold in the morning. #5 The free breakfast consisted of muffins, waffles & juice. On the plus side, the internet worked good. I would never stay either in this hotel or a Quality Inn again, based on this experience.

We stayed at the Quality Inn for one night on our way down to Florida for the winter. No, it's nothing fancy (do some of these reviewers expect to be staying at Buckingham Palace??) but it's clean, the beds are comfortable and it's about one minute off the I-75. Parking is right outside the door and the continental breakfast is very basic (since it's free, the price is right!). There are parking lots all around, so it's not in a picture postacrd perfect location. Who cares? It was comfortable and the rate was great. An added bonus if you have a bit of time: GREAT shopping right next door! A nice outlet mall (not too big) and a strip mall with some funky little consignment shops and bookstores. We arrived early and had some time to look around before going out to dinner--- had a great little bonus shopping trip.

I have stayed at many Quality Inns. This one didn't make the grade. Front desk was helpful, and friendly. I requested a King, Non smoking room. There were none available on the first floor, and I have a problem with stairs. They didn't have an elevator, but were able to find a "handicap" room on the 1st floor. The room was clean, but this place needs an updating to up it to a Quality Inn. The room did have a stale odd smell, and I had to check to verify that it was non smoking...it was so marked on the door. The floor carpet seemed clean and didn't turn my feet black. The bed was comfortable, although the linen seemed worn. The comforter was stained. TV was 25", with good reception, but the remote was finicky. The set controls did not work. The fridge was fine, but no freezer. I didn't use the microwave, nor the coffee maker. The bathroom had an elevated toilet, but regular tub, with grab bars. There was mold on the caulking around the tub. The tub had seen better days, and had painted over chips, and was scratched, and discolored. There was a bath chair, which looked like it was picked up at a yard sale. The hand held shower spray looked like it was gotten at the same yard sale, and worked horribly. The soft spray was about nil, and you had to adjust to a semi-pulse to get any amount of water. The heat worked well...but was hard to regulate, and loud. The sink/counter was a very dated blue/gray color, and the faucet was hard to work, and sprayed in many directions. There was shampoo, and conditioner, but no skin cream. The towels were okay, but thin. The bath mat was in tough shape, and should be thrown out. There was plenty of storage area, but no table/chairs in the room....maybe to allow wheelchair access beside the bed. There was a comfortable recliner. There was no coffee when I went to the "continental breakfast". There was nobody at the desk for about ten minutes to report it to. It then took another ten minutes to get coffee...which wasn't too bad. There was cereal, danish, bread, but no mini donuts! OJ was available. Breakfast area was very small, and hard to navigate to get what you wanted. The internet worked well, but booted you off line after awhile.
All in all I was disappointed in this hotel. It was a three dollars cheaper than other Quality Inns in the area. Do yourself a favor, and spend the extra few bucks!

My family stayed here on the way back from Tampa FL to Atlanta Ga. Clean rooms with fridge and micro wave, free wi-fi access and there is a Sonny's Barbecue about 50 feet from the motel property. All in all a great place to stay and break up that long drive from Tampa to Atlanta.

This was the first time staying at this hotel. I stayed here because of the location and the price point. It is a motor lodge type hotel and they really could do a better job of the curb appeal. Since I am a Priority Club member, check in was a breeze. They had given me everything I requested except a desk in the room. None of their rooms have desks, They have little round tables. But the room was clean. They had a bottle of water, banana and granola bar ready in the room. Nice jester. And the front desk checked in to make sure everything was alright. It was very convienient to park the car right in front of the door and walk everything right in. When you travel 200+ nights a year, this comes in really handy. There was a microwave and fridge in the room. I thought the room was a bit pricey for this time of year and with the AAA discount that I get. Since I havent stayed in any other hotels in the area, I would probably experiment with others in the area before returning. But all in all, not bad.

We drove halfway to Disney from Atlanta and decided to stay at this HI Express, as it was just past Valdosta which is busy and had lots of holiday traffic. It is a motor lodge, but when we got inside the room, the room was clean, pleasantly decorated and looks like it's been renovated. I wasn't sure if I would like it at first when I saw the hotel from the outside, but for a place to just spend the night and get up and go in the morning, it's decent. We walked to a BBQ restaurant for dinner and there are shopping outlets walking distance and some other restaurants.
