“Over- priced and Underwhelmed”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

As my mom started to pay for the hotel, it ended up costing more than we were originally told. After paying over $90/ night, Sunday we pulled in and saw a sign that said the rooms were $33/ night. They really pulled the wool over our eyes. They claim that they have a indoor pool and hot tub, but the indoor pool is not heated and the hot tub has no heat whatsoever it was ice cold. The rooms were dated and had a musty smell. Be careful of the pan handlers that walk around the parking lot as well. One of them sneaked up behind my mom, then proceeded to ask her for some money. My mom was afraid to not give him money because she didn't want him to slash her tires or mess with the vehicle.

Room Tip: If you are in the Perry area stay at the New Perry Hotel. They are better priced and the service is...

Slowed by torrential rain we stopped in Perry at the HJ. We were given a room on the back side of the hotel on the second floor. This required carrying luggage up an outside concrete stairway. The room had simple furniture with popcorn ceilings. There were holes in the top of the dresser where likely they had formerly bolted down a TV. The sink and shower have an unusual pivoting handle which took some experimentation. The sink had hot to the right and the shower hot to the left. There is a safe in the room and our receipt noted that a $2 fee would be added for the safe. Our beds were fine but the linens were old old old. There were several 1 to 2 inch holes in all four sheets. Breakfast was crowded perhaps more than usual and items ran out including bread. There is an indoor pool which is not heated. For one night this was fine, but a longer stay would have been difficult

I recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was clean, comfortable and pleasant to say the least. I found that the room had a great working fridge and clean micro. The sheets were crisp and fresh along with the towels. You can really tell that housekeeping and management has their "eye" on things when it comes to keeping these rooms immaculate and inviting to their future guests. There was also a flat panel tv in my room with plenty of channels to choose from. It was very comforting to experience that I didn't find any unwanted creatures lurking in my room as with a few of my other adventures in recent hotel stays (see my reviews. you may get a laugh!) This hotel is centrally located around a lot of restaurants and grocery stores which adds to its attractiveness. There is a McD's, Krystal, Chick-Fil-A, Red Lobster, Asian Buffet, Oyster Bar, and sandwich shop within short walking distance. Also, there is a Kroger located right next door (200 feet) and a Wal-mart directly across the street. Combining all of these elements, I will definitely reserve another room at this hotel the next time I am in the area if need be.....FYI...Truck parking is very,very limited here. Check first!

Chose this place because of the ratings... It should have not really made the top 10, even out of 10... Front desk service was not bad, but not friendly whatsoever... Then you get charged $2 for a in room safe, use it or not; should have just added it to the room price. The day before check out, we woke up earlier than planned because room service opened our door; we got no room service on that day, they never bother to come back even with the "please clean room" sign on. Beds were good, I'll give them that... But furniture is all beaten up and falling apart. The fridge was so embeded into the carpet you could barely open the door. It was a clean, non smoking room but had cigarette burns everywhere and stains all over the bathroom walls and door. It's said you get what you pay for, but I have paid about the same amount for better places. Again, may be good if you are just crashing for one night passing by...

Very clean rooms, nice indoor pool, if a problem arises like our toilet was stopped up when we first got there- staff immediately came to room and fixed the problem, nicest hotel we have ever stayed at. Keep up the great work. We recommend this hotel to others and will stay here in the future.
