Classic example of southern hospitality

I took a chance on walking in and hoping for a room on a UGA game weekend after having an unfortunate incident at another hotel. I am so glad I did! Tripp was the friendly face I needed at that mome... more

Dawn, Thank you so much for your glowing review! I was so happy to help you find accommodations for a last minute football room and am so glad we were able to help you out with a room for Saturday night due to a last minute cancellation! We hope to see you the next time you are in town for a Georgia Football Game!

Poor timing

Unfair to rate motel while in the middle of construction. Staff and cleanliness/comfort of room--though obvious old motel--indicate it has been, and will be an excellent place to stay when all work is... more

Jsenatro, I am apologize for you not knowing that our property is currently under construction of a 7 story interior tower. A lot of times when you do not book direct with the hotel it is hard to truly know what you are booking, as it is listed on our Best Western Website that we are currently under construction. After the new tower is complete we will be able to offer an extensive lobby area, breakfast area that will seat 100+ people, indoor hydrotherapy spa, fitness center, meeting space, business center, as well as additional guest rooms. We know that we are in an "awkward" phase but know that upon completion of this new tower that we will be able to better serve our clients. We hope that you will consider staying with us again, upon completion of our new addition!
