Visiting a friend for 2 nights who lives in Andersonville so I wanted to be close enough to her house. We arrived a little early and called, as the reservation suggested, to see if we could get in our room early. After several phone calls, we were still unable to reach anyone. We used the code we were given to open the door right at 3 and got in. There was no sign of the manager. We stayed in room 2 so we had the detached bath--bath met our needs (although the shower is a little tricky). Had problems with the shades in our room so we called the number in the in-room book and the number was disconnected. Finally got the manager via the other number (was probably a cell because he said he'd show up in 15 minutes which he did). The book also stated that we would have housekeeping service each day which only happened in the
bathroom. Also, still problems with the freezer/refrigerator like someone mentioned in their December 2011 review. Continental breakfast was fine. I sleep deeply which was fortunate because walls are paper thin. Suggestions: more towels, daily housekeeping, more visibility of manager and updated in room info. I'd stay here again only because it's a good value and I am not in the room much at all.
