“Pretty much unbeatable.”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

I should first mention that the price of one night's stay is 32 dollars and ten cents. That being said, being in South Georgia, in the middle of nowhere, you would expect something slightly worse than awful. However, the Gator is actually very clean, very quiet (obviously), and even charming? Again, the room is 32 bucks, so there is some wear on the carpet, and in the bathroom, but it was all very clean - cleaner than rooms I've paid over 150 bucks for elsewhere.

The air conditioning was unbelievably cold - another plus. The location is, well, good, I guess. It is near the Swamp entrance, the gas station, and one restaurant in town. Actually, you could probably throw a rock and hit the gas station and restaurant from the parking lot of the motel.

The gator is great, not that anyone has a choice otherwise, but really, 32.10?? You can't pass that up. And you leave your money on the dresser when you leave!

This is a small 4 room motel. Reservations are made by calling the owners at home, No deposit is required. Your name is put on your room door, the door is left unlocked for your arrival and when you leave you put your money on the dresser and lock the door. The owners tell me they had an associated press writer do an article the Gator Motel several years ago. The article was published in newspapers all over the United States and in a Bejing, China newspaper. It also sparked the interest of Turner Broadcasting System and they taped an interview with the owner Kevin Hart taking you on a tour of this unique hotel for their show Liars & Legends. People come from all over the world - Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Australia, England, Italy just to name a few. This motel contains no ammenities but is clean and a experience not to be missed
