DO NOT GO HERE!!! i booked for 30 days not knowing how disgusting this place was!! stayed there for about 3 days before my companion and i were waking up with bites and came into our room one morning only to be greeted by the BIGGEST bedbug ever on our sheets!!!( which i had bought by the way!!) when we went to management the only accommodations we were given were a new room and $5.00 in quarters to dry heat all of our belongings in their so-called laundry facilities!! No one was sincere about our problems and they didn"t even give us a fraction of a refund or extended stay(not that i would have stayed!!) for our hassles!! diseased disgusting crack hotel...oh and did i mention the faint smell of marijuana as you walk the halls!! save your time and money!! and for the general manager....i dont want your insincere apology......i just want my $700 back!!!

Room Tip: no room here is a good one!

Ive read apologies from the Management of this place that date back 2 years. I stayed there in DEC 2010 and this place is as nasty as ever. Unfortunately, I pre-paid for this room and couldn't get a refund, so I toughed it out. 3 days of filth... I HAD TO PURCHASED NEW BEDDING AS SOON AS I GOT THERE!!! I walked in the room, looked at the bedding, and walked right back out and drove to the closest store I could find, and bought a new sheet, blanket, plastic mattress cover, etc.etc... DISGUSTING. I also had to clean the room myself, Lysol, Lysol, Lysol... Staff was useless.. I came to town for a Funeral and this place added insult to injury.... How can these people, in good conscience, advertise this place as a Hotel?? This place is obviously a homeless shelter of some sort. The room across from me had at least 5 people living in that studio "Suite". Shady characters around every corner too... And these people obviously LIVE IN THIS "HOTEL"!! How can sites like Priceline and Expedia have this place on their list?? You're lying to your customers... Thats a great business practice... Please do not waste your time or your money on this place, or places like this one like I did... Tara Inn Manager-Save your apology. I dont wanna hear it. You are a liar! You have no intention of cleaning this place up. And I wont find out, because I WILL NEVER WALK THROUGH THAT DOOR AGAIN!!

Filthy all around. I lived in NYC and know a crack hotel when I see one. Thank GOD for the free WiFi because we only stayed long enough to book a room at the Clarion down the street. RUN don't walk from this one! I can say that the front desk clerk was the only redeeming thing about this place. He helped us checkout FAST and get our money back.

We went on priceline to book a room for the weekend to have a date night me and my spouse. First, when we pulled up Clayton County police was outside blocking the enterance with a bunch of teenagers, Second when we went in the lobby there was people hanging around on the counter in the lobby and there were water bugs crawling around on the floor. To put the icing on the cake the rsuite was HORRIBLE it had water damage on the walls in the bathroom, The tub was flilthy, The bed was on the floor and was not made. Also the carpet smelled like animal urine.....I had to get out of the plase asap. When we got back to the lobby the people where still hanging on the counter and there was a female in there walking her dog which was about 65 pounds. I told the guy that I could not stay there and ran up out of that place as fast as I could. By the way it was room 271 that they put us in

This hotel is very nasty, it really should be an hourly motel with the type of people they checked in. It was nothing like it was advertised online, we booked a non-smoking room with a kitchenette. As soon as we open the door to the room is smelled of cigarettes and "other things". The bathroom was very disgusting, the flooring was stained, the toilet leaked, not even a toilet paper holder in there. The carpet and chair in the room had so many stains. Unknown crust and debris was all over the room. We sprayed a whole can of Lysol, around the room and it still smelled horrible. It is clear this MOTEL is for the nightly working women, and homeless people.
All in all this was a disgusting hotel, I would not recommend it to anyone.

This hotel is disgusting!! All we can hear is loud noise and speakers booming!! There are people in the hall constantly! The door look likes its been kicked in and the carpet is gross!! The couch has burn holes all over it and when we pulled out the pull out bed it smelt like nothing but urine!!! The phone doesn't even work!! So if there was an emergency we wouldn't be able to contact front desk!!! This is the absolute worst place ever! And we are leaving! We'll sleep in our vehicle before we sleep here!!

When I checked in t he hotel there were no towels and the room was very nasty. My aunt checked in a dirty room and had to be changed into another one. My stay was not good at all and I will not recommend this hotel to NO ONE.
