This is an OLD, OLD motel than has been updated, but still shows its age. Located right on Jonesboro Road, a major road in Morrow, just of I75. Beware of your GPS instructions, mine told me to turn before I got to the hotel. Turn at the traffic light beyond the hotel, then left again.
Check in was easy, but unfriendly. Your door goes directly to the outside, no hallway. No elevator, so request first floor.
Room was clean and beds were ok. No tea in room, just coffee, but there is a microwave and small fridge.
There is no security and there were people walking around outside every time I went out. I did NOT feel comfortable or safe the whole time I was there. One morning another guests truck had its window broken out, then they went through his truck, confirming my uneasy feeling about this area. Family members stayed down the street at the Drury and they had gates that you had to punch in a code to get in, plus outside security and cameras. Much needed in this area.
Breakfast was ok, lady that was working there never said a word to anyone and I spent some time in there just watching tv and eating. Eggs every morning with one meat, then the usual cereal, fruit, etc. There was no milk one morning. A very small assortment of tea, one morning it was almost empty.
Would NOT recommend this hotel for a single woman traveling alone for sure and couples should beware too. I struggled to give this one an average because it is NOT the average Best Western. less

Dear valued guest,
I’m sorry we did not meet your expectations. I have owned this Inn since 2001 and Morrow is wonderful small southern town. Our readers at Trip Advisor rank us #2 out of 12 local hotels because we provide a comfortable and very nice room for a very reasonable price. Your fears are unfounded- most folks enjoy the convenience of walking next door to the Cracker Barrel or IHOP restaurants- plus it’s super easy to get back on I-75. Thanks for your review and best wishes in your travels.
