Not familiar with Hotels/Motels in the metropolitan Atlanta region, I picked one based on its proximity to the Hartsfield International Airport to house an Academic Dr. from The Netherlands. Photographs on the web site, con you with their appeal of an indoor pool and elegantly furnished rooms. Although I did ask for a "Non-smoking" room, the classification is probably quite arbitrary because all they do is move the desktop "No-Smoking" sign from room to room; the stench of stale cigarette smoke was formidably strong and unpleasant upon entry. As to the picturesque "Indoor Pool" from the web site, it was covered up for the season but open to the sky; The word 'indoor' being an euphemism. The sheets and curtains looked like they needed a more thorough wash and even the elevator and walkways looked like they had not been cleaned recently. The so-called "Continental" breakfast was a joke and the adjective needed to be redefined for a truly European guest.
Mr. Eddie, the Receptionist-Clerk was pleasant enough and the location is a great one but someone needs to manage the property better so that foreign visitors do not take back an uncomplimentary image of a historic town that is trying to vie with Miami for an honorable status. The price was, indeed, reasonable but it does not buy you the 'bang for your buck' that other Hotels in the same area provide.
