Sylvester Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Sylvester
Reviewed April 8, 2012

This hotel is a great one. The rooms are clean and convenient. The breakfast has many items. They don't have bugs anymore. I talked to them before I got the room. They said that they did renovation to the hotel after reading the bad reviews. The towels were clean. The walls had no stains. And the bed and TV was brand new. I couldn't believe this after reading the horrible things. I do not agree with the bad reviews. Take my honest advice and check it out. Hopefully your visit will be like mine.

This hotel has now changed names to Sylvester Inn. We have stayed at this hotel about 10 times, but only becuase the only other hotel in Sylvester appeared even dirtier than this one. It is also almost impossible to speak to the staff over the phone because none of them speak very good English. Every time I've tried to make reservations, it was an extremely painful process! In past stays I have been charged for someone else's room, our room keys haven't worked, there was no one at the front to assist us when we checked out at 6:00 a.m...the list goes on and on. Apparently the owners live there as well and were asleep so we had to continuously bang on the door and ring the bell until someone finally came out to help us - making our drive to the airport a stressful one because we were then running behind. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. If you have the means to drive to Albany or Tifton to stay, I encourage you to do so. I will do my best to NEVER stay at this hotel again!!!

I stayed at this property last year and it was a decent stay. The room was nice and comfortable. This hotel is not anything special, but it was fine for the one night I stayed here. I would probably stay here again if in the area.

After reading so many bad things about this hotel we had decided not to stay here, but after 6 hours of driving in a nasty rain and several hours with relatives the only other hotel in town did not accept pets, and we had our two little dogs with us. We were tempted to drive to Tifton or Albany, but were too tired. Thought we'd check out the rooms and decide if we could handle it.

We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel staff was very nice and the room was immaculate. Everything in the room was clean and neat. No signs of any pests. This was a great place to stay. We are so glad we decided to try it rather than drive 20 more miles down the road. We will more than likely be back and will be proud to stay there again. We did not have any problems at this hotel.

DO NOT stay here... This place is infested with ROACHES.. ... We killed at least 30 within the first 15 minutes of arrival... It was so disgusting..and YES, I DO have pictures to prove it... There were also dead roach smears on the wall from previous roach killers.......The hotel is FILTHY.. with sticky nasty carpet/bedspreads..... beverage stains running down the back of the end table..( which we discovered while searching for more roaches to kill).. There were holes in the plastic wrap around the disposable cups..so I'm sure the roaches had already visited there too..... If you have still managed to read this far and are wondering why we stayed.. it was very late and we were beyond exhausted... WE SLEPT WITH THE LIGHTS ON..because roaches DO NOT like light..... but I kept my shoe on the nightstand just in case...
The Worth County enviornmental department WILL be notfied.... This hotel should be SHUT DOWN...
Also.. Th AC didn't kick in until around 5:00am

This was the most filthy hotel I have every stayed at. The carpet was sticky, there were dead flys on the table, and there were brown (poop) stains on the face clothes. The towels were all yellowed and/or brown and the bedspread was sticky. The 'continental' breakfast was pathetic and the milk to go with breakfast came from a carton that was sour. The room was dark and depressing.

Dear cgarrison,

I am sorry that you left with such a perception of my property. I will respectfully disagree with most of the points you made.

I would not be in business for 13 years if I ran a hotel and delivered a product as you suggested.

We have regular inspections from our local health department and I can assure you that if these conditions existed, we wouldn't be open today. This isn't to say that we don't have issues now and then that need to be addressed but nothing as gross as you mentioned in your response.

Again, I apologize for your experience and hope you give us another chance when passing through Sylvester. Stop in and say hello and we can inspect your room together so you are very happy with everything at my hotel.

Thanks for your review.

AJ Patel
