This is a nice hotel located on a cul de sac full of hotels. It still feels new and has an updated, sleek and modern design, especially in the rooms. Check in was a breeze with a friendly clerk. After reading reviews that mentioned train noise, I asked for a room on the front side. I was told there were none available since the hotel was sold out. The clerk mentioned I was on the 4th floor so it would be less of an issue, and honestly the frequent trains didn’t really bother us. The clerk smiled and said next time I should call a few days before my arrival and request a room facing the street and they could accommodate me.
The room was spacious and included a raised king bed that I found super comfortable, with a nice quality mattress. They really scrimped on the size of the pillows, though, which were small, with a couple of them almost decorative size. It was one thing I didn’t like about the room. The floors were made of some type of material that resembled cork or bamboo. Personally, I prefer the warmth of carpet, but I suspect the material is good for wear and tear and maintenance. One nice touch I wasn’t expecting was a small counter/kitchenette with cupboards, coffee maker, microwave and a small refrigerator. It would be especially convenient if staying for more than one night.
The bathroom was nice but the sink, while very trendy and modern, is not functional. The sides are too high and the stopper, in the middle of the sink, causes water to splatter out of the sink and onto your shirt. Take care when turning the water on or you’ll get doused.
There was also a work desk, great for using the free wireless internet service. Surprisingly there was not a waste can in the room. And the one in the bathroom was a small plastic can that look liked it came from WalMart and didn’t match the color scheme too well. It certainly wasn’t in keeping with the rest of the décor. Just something I noted but it didn’t really affect the quality of our stay.
One nice security touch is the inability to board the elevator without inserting a room key. However, I was surprised there wasn’t a room safe for locking up wallets, cameras or laptops. I’m used to that in almost any hotel I book.
All-in-all the Holiday Inn North Macon won’t disappoint, although I didn’t think it was a great value, even with a discounted rate from an internet travel site.
