The second week of October we decided to go to spend a few days in Atlanta and go to Scotts Antique Auction. We searched for a nice, economical and safe place to stay in Atlanta. Everything indicated Buckhead was one of the nicer areas, and we were willing to pay more to stay in that area. We called ahead for directions and the told my husband we could get there from 75. Well we could but she took us 45 minutes out of the way. Tired when we arrived, we were less than impressed with our room.
This was't the worst place I have been, but the coverlet on the bed looked sad, for lack of a better word. The big lumps were visible and it needed to be thrown away. It had been washed one too many times. The bed itself wasn't comfortable either. If you were in the middle, the bed didn't sag, but if you moved to either side, your body would sag four or five inches. It is definitely time for them to replace mattresses.
The bathroom was tiny and the vanity was the smallest I have seen in a hotel room. We barely had room to turn around. The staff downstairs was friendly and breakfast was nice, but didn't make up for the other disappointments. Being unfamiliar with the area, we didn't realize there were only one or two restaurants within walking distance and that was the biggest disappointment for us. The only two that were close enough to walk to was a Mexican and a German restaurant. Next trip to Atlanta, we will stay somewhere other than Buckhead. I think that area is more suited to the people who live there instead of visitors.
