Our room was filthy dirty. Urine build up an dried around bottom of floor an base of toilet. Bathtub had a lovely dark scum ring. Nasty spots on walls don't even wanna try to guess what it was. They Discounted me 15%. I told them I'd mention the 15% in my review so here it is. Totally not worth the 89.99 a night. It was nasty see pics I posted on trip advisor.

It wasn't a horrible experience or anything, but honestly, I should have stayed over at the Sleep Inn next door instead. First off, we got in at around 10pm and after I went inside and got our room keys, we were forced to park by the road (they have like 4 parking spots total), which is really FAR from the hotel when you have a toddler and luggage and a dog. It was ridiculous. Second, make sure you don't forget anything because they will not give you replacements, such as a toothpaste or shampoo. Apparently, "they don't do that." Front desk lady advised me to use lotion on my HAIR. Yes, really. Lastly, she tried to give me a smoking room (YUK) I have a baby, I will not go in a nasty smoke filled room. She said "Well thats what you put online." Umm, no, why would I do that when I dont smoke. Other than her being rude and on the phone the whole time I was checking in, the breakfast the next morning was wonderful. It looked like the owners were out helping in the morning and they were great. Very accommodating and friendly.

We stayed here just to get a few hours of sleep during a road trip. It was perfect. Paid about $52 plus tax and received a clean, quiet, room with 2 queen-sized (not double) beds. Decent breakfast in the morning was included. For a small, economy hotel they provided nice amenities including a computer and printer in the lobby. There is nothing fancy about this place but it met our needs perfectly. Kind, helpful, friendly staff.

Easy to get to , just off interstate75. We stopped on our way to Florida. It was quiet and comfortable. There were several good restaurants nearby. Our room was just what we needed after a long drive. We were a little surprised you could not take any food from the breakfast area into your room.

On the drive to or from Florida, this is an excellent value for those who want just a place to get a good night's sleep. Nothing fancy, but the bed is comfortable, the room is clean and the neighborhood is safe. We will return.

Late check in on two double room via a Priceline reservation. Check in was quick and friendly. There was literally no parking left since we checked in late on a Spring Break weekend, I ended up having to park right off of the main doors and asked the front desk lady to call me if anyone complains. We received a ground floor room with 10 foot ceilings and an odd room configuration with the rest room to the back right of the room. Nothing wrong with the configuration, just different. The room was clean and the hotel was quiet even though it was completely booked. Everyone was just passing through it seems. Breakfast was your normal fare of breads, cereal, yogurt, bananas. Though they did sport a waffle iron! That proved to be exciting for the young ones. Staff was friendly and at no time did I get wigged out about anything. Definitely would recommend.

Hotel is dated but clean. The halls do smell of smoke but once we got into the non-smoking room the smell was gone. Decent breakfast. Half the price of other hotels in the area. I would stay again if passing through Valdosta. It is close to shopping and lots of restaurants. Also, it is right off the interstate.
