The overall room was clean (meaning, clean sheets and clean surfaces) and there were no bugs. There is ample storage for your clothes and a useful desk area. Plenty of sockets to charge up your electronics and free wifi. Ample hot water, good heat and plenty of cable channels. My room was very quiet - didn't hear my neighbors at...

Though I'll admit that as other reviewers have stated this property isn't in the best neighborhood and it's also true it's a bit worn around the edges but we didn't necessarily feel in danger at anytime. We needed only one night to get some rest before continuing onwards and this Econo Lodge was right off the highway so it served...

This hotel should not be apart of Choice Hotels as the parking & parking is not good pot holes and some deep swells. The stairs are steel and very dangerous if wet at all you better hold on to the rail or you will fall. If there is any rain & lighting you will get fried. The whole place is...

This was by far the worst hotel/motel stay in my entire life. I booked 5 rooms over the phone with choice hotels. We waited till longer than we should have to reserve a room so many area hotels were booked. I chose this hotel because of the choice hotel chain. We were traveling with our church youth group. Upon arrival...

I had a very nice stay here, three nights, no issues. Room was clean and comfortable, easy location right off the I-285 loop, and a very reasonable rate. The free breakfast is nothing to write home about, but it was adequate for me (cereal, muffins, juice). An unexpected bonus was that there was a mini-frig in the room which had...

Location is great since it's right of of 285. Rooms were fair.. I can't remember the lady's name who was at the front desk, it may have been patel, in the morning, but she was great. I even offered her a tip, but she did not take it.

Ok where do I begin. When I checked in the lady at the front desk was absolutely nice. She was helpful and pleasant. Now when I got to my room. I was not that pleased. I wasn't feeling well so I didn't notice all the wrong things. But after getting up I saw that there was no smoke detector in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were met by a charming young lady when we checked in. She was very courteous and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay. They offered us 24 hour coffee service and a wonderful continental breakfast with a large variety of items to choose from. Our room was clean and the...

I was once told, if you want to know how bad or good a motel/hotel room is taken care of...take a good look at the lobby. Maaaaan....I took that advice to heart! If you like a lobby of a hotel that: smells like SPICY booty and arms, furniture that used to belong to Mr and Mrs Roper from the show...

First off, this was purchased through a secret price - where you don't get to select the hotel because the price and hotel are too good to reveal. It should be illegal for such places to be listed and available through such services - safety should NEVER be compromised. I have stayed in the burbs of Atlanta many times, that...
