We made reservations at this Super 8 for three nights, we looked at several motels in the area with similar pricing and amenities. A major reason this hotel was chosen was because it was pet friendly and relatively inexpensive. When I checked in on Friday night, the gentleman at the counter was helpful and curteous, he turned out to be the only good part of this hotel. After getting our key, we went to our room, passing a variety of apparent hookers and what looked like a drug deal in the parking lot. We got in our room and made sure to lock the doors, The room was in very poor condition. There was a chunk of the wall was missing beside the luggage rack, NO hot water from sink faucet and it literally sprayed water all over the mirror when you turned it on, stains all over the vanity, we wouldn't even try the tub for all the nasty stains and what appeared to be mold in the grout, the carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks or months, DIRTIEST ROOM I'VE EVER SEEN!!! The light over the vanity had black dirt from where the light has not been dusted in quite a while. It was supposed to be a Non Smoking room but it smelled of stale cigarettes. It appeared that the place had never had maintance done on it. Even the sheets were only "semi-clean". We arrived around 11 pm and were ready to crash after a day of work and our drive, however, this was not to be the case. The air conditioner was loud and seemed on the verge of stopping completely at any moment, or just falling out of the wall, think about a Jet engine going off in the room. If that wasn't enough there were people who were very loud outside the room, people who were having very loud intercourse in both rooms on either side of us. So from the banging on the walls, the jet engine air conditioner, and the people who were taking a stroll outside the room yelling and banging on doors at 2 AM, there was little sleep to be had. Parking was very bad. not enough for the space and the parking lot was poorly lit, not at all a safe feeling to this place. But here is the kicker. We paid for three nights when we checked in. We had to leave after two nights due to a family emergency. The gentleman who checked us out that morning was absolutely no help. I had told him that we would have to check out early, and wanted to find out about a refund for the third night since we would not be staying. His response was we had to call the manager on Monday, he could not do anything, and that this was his first day at work. Needless to say, we left, money still out of our account for the third night we did not stay. The only good part of the day was the satisfaction in knowing I would never have to return to this establishment ever again. I will go out of my way next time I stay in Atlanta to stay away from this Super 8 and any affiliated motels/hotels in fear of a similar experience. I have stayed in some pretty crappy hotels in my life, but this one takes the cake. When I have to go out of my way to write a review this detailed, it is pretty bad. Be warned, there are other hotels around with similiar pricing which are surely a safer, cleaner, and better maintained environment. Go to any of those instead of here! I wish we had!!
