The staff is nice. The hotel was clean. The beds are very comfortable. But after my second night, I was greeted to no water and no answers.
I came to Northwest Georgia to photograph a major music festival. The festival had camping, but I knew working 14+ hour days and being on my feet the whole time, I'd want a nice bed and a shower. This is the reason I booked a room more than 40 mins from the festival. I didn't mind driving the distance to insure I'd be clean each day. Well to wake up after a full day at the event to find I wouldn't get a shower, I was extremely disappointed. The hotel staff said there was a leak and the water needed to be turned off. They said they tried to contact me twice - which never happened. They said the water was turned off 10 mins before I noticed.
I understand these things happen. But there was virtually no one else at the hotel. If water needed to be turned off, couldn't they have knocked on my door? It's not like the place was full of guests. And then to have no answers as to when it was going to be back on made things even worse. On top of that, there was a hotel right next door... couldn't they have immediately called that hotel to make some sort of arrangement? In other words, I was out of luck and would go another day without a shower.
This place could be a great hotel had it not been for that very bad experience.
