“Icky, sticky, and dirty. Avoid it like the plague.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2008

At the last minute, we needed a place to stay overnight to complete our drive from Florida to Tennessee. The Travelodge in Kennesaw seemed to fit the bill and the price was right ($55.)

The staff was somewhat courteous, albeit not particularly warm nor friendly. The room, however, was vile. A urine stench pervaded the room, the carpets were filthy and the entire room just felt generally unclean. Had we not been exhausted and had my kids not already fallen asleep, we would have left; that's how bad it was.

  • Disliked — It was disgusting-- genuinely terrible.
  • Stayed August 2008, traveled with family

We are sorry for your stay, no excuses. However, we have taken steps to better train our housekeeping staff and have replaced many bedding items. We have also re-trained the staff on cleaning techniques. I can assure you, similar situations will not occur.

After two day straight thru drive from Boston with my wife and daughter and check in, I got up next day to take an 8 am shower. NO HOT WATER. Went and asked about it and was told that it would be "turned on right away" and that it would be about 15 minutes till hot water flowed. 1 hour later no hot water. Packed up and loaded the car. Had been intending to stay 6 days with my family as we visited relatives in Kennesaw. Went to check out and was given hassle, the man saying it would just be another 15 minutes.
More argument when I declined to stay on. Charged $68 plus tax from what would have been $50 a day. The hotel's advert claims nothing higher than $56 year round! So punished for my impudence I guess.
Left and found lodging elsewhere. No excuses were offered at our next choice. Hot water flowed from the first minute we arrived until the last.
Burning in Boston.

Stayed December 2007
