Although I traveled alone my daughter, who is in college stayed with me. Two days after our stay she broke out in bumps that itched terribly. It was confirmed by our doctor that she acquired bed bug bites. I was appalled and reported this establishment to the Better Business Bureau.
Not much. It was the only hotel left with vacancy that fit my budget. This was a football weekend at UGA and all other places elevate their rates per night. The manager is nice though.

Smelled. Old beds. Writing on the wall. Mold. I pray i did not catch any disease from opening the door and shutting it to walk away and get back in my car and leave.

The pillows were barely pillows. The towels were scrachie and small. The bed had NO support at all. I'll be sore for a month from sleeping on them.

Room was smelly and unclean.
Interestingly, the room had a full size refrigerator.
September 22, 2014
The standards of the property were far below any scale that I would have allowed my family to stay. It was very "run down" with a distinctly foul odor.
The manager was very apologetic and accommodating to refund the pre-paid room amount.
September 21, 2014
This place is a complete dump, dirty, poorly maintained. You couldn't pay me enought to stay there again.

This was the most disgusting place I have ever stayed in my life. When we arrived the room we were giving didn't have air conditioning and was 90 degrees on the inside. The manager said "some rooms are cold some rooms are hot", after putting up a fuss he gave us another room with working air conditioning. The original room was unlivable. Our friends box spring had blood stains all over it when they moved the mattress by accident. The people that hang around the motel look like they are about to kill you in your sleep, homeless, dirty, prostitutes and gang like members hang outside your room. You will be afraid to close your eyes. The bathrooms were disgusting I don't think anyone cleaned our room before we got there, thank goodness I had a sleeping bag with me that I didn't have to sleep in the sheets because I was so scared of the condition of the bedding. The managers speak little English and the grounds are littered with trash. The managers could care less about you they just want your money. And most importantly their website says that this motel is 1.5 miles away from the stadium, this is false, it is 5+ miles and you are better off spending more money somewhere else. We were a large group of college girls in for a game and I can honestly say this was the most miserable living situation I have ever experienced in my life and I have backpacked through hostels in Europe so that's saying something. Do yourself a favor and never stay here, this motel should be burned.

Do not stay here. Every surface was dirty, even the ceiling. Saw several bugs within minutes of walking in. Bedding appeared to be unwashed as there was hair in the bed (not to mention some kind of mite). Woke up with rashes on my legs and body, and definite bugbites at several locations. Neither TV nor wifi worked. Sign in front office: "Refunds only within first 15 minutes after check-in." Should have taken that as a warning. Place should be shut down by county health.

The room was awful. It was filthy. The floor looked like it had never been vacuumed nor mopped. None of the furniture had been polished nor the fridge/microwave cleaned. I had to go to Walmart and buy cleaning supplies to clean and disinfect the room so that we can sleep. I would have gone to another hotel but none were available and my daughter was in a dance competition the next morning in Athens. We had to be there at 7:30am so we made the best of a horrible situation. This did make me very sceptical about reviews and how this place can even still be in business. Awful experience.

There was a long black hair wrapped in the towels the shower had public hair in it and while bringing my bags in the room the owner and maintanice man were killing snakes!!
The manager let me and my husband check in early since we were coming from out of state!
