“hell naw”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2006

Please please do not give this hotel your business!! the reason we went was because we found a cupon for $40 dollars on a sunday (this was last night)and we were looking for a cheap place to stay in for a couple of hours until we were ready to leave to go back to atlanta. it ended up coming to $65 and we paid because it was already so late (12 a.m.) first of all our room was facing a ghetto.no joke. and we could already see the drunks and prostitutes walk by. we thought the inside of the room would be better though. boy were we wrong. our room was a non-smoking room and it smelt strongly of smoke. there were holes in the wall, and in the comforter, and ants and roaches crawling everywhere. the carpet which was supposed to be tan had black stains all over it. we pulled back the comforter and saw that clearly the sheets had not been washed.so we had to sleep on top of the nasty comforter. after 2 hours of sleeping we get a call (at 2 a.m.) with no one on the line. we decided this was just TOO much and for fear of our car being broken into, left the hotel and ended up sleeping in a parking lot miles away. we came back at 8 o'clock to make sure we didn't leave anything and to check out. as i was sitting on the bed, i decided to reach over and look at a brochure of local hotels. as i opened it, i saw a plastic baggie with marijuana in it! this was the worst hotel experience i had ever had!! only the scum of the earth stays there.

I would never have stayed there had it known been for the annual Georgia Floida football game. A lot of prostitues walk around the area, as well as druggies. If you stay, make sure you ask for a non smoking room, because the smoking ones are nasty. The bathroom is pretty nasty. We actually had to move rooms because our shower stopped working at 8pm.

Some rooms have microwaves and mini fridges, some dont... yet they still charge the exact same for all rooms. Bed sheets had pubic hair on them, asked front desk for a clean pair around mindight and he said he couldnt do a thing because he didnt have access to the laundry, or anything. I asked if we could grab clean sheets from another room, and he said "there are no clean sheets in the hotel". The guy hung up on the phone with me, a real --. We ended up putting a sleeping bag over the bed, and slept on that. We eventually got clean sheets, but the security guard asked me what happened to the old sheets, as if we had messed them up somehow. Anyway, some of the front desk people were friendly, others were quite the opposite.

We got there on Wednesday, and by Friday it was packed full of other college students down for the game, which made the stay much more pleasant and safe. Overall, it was a dump. Try the Ramada Inn South, only a couple of miles away and much cleaner overall and in a better area. We stayed there for the 2004 game.

Rooms are very unattractive. The towels we like sandpaper. There was bugs in the place and a cobweb hanging from the lamp shade. The paint job was horrible and the bathroom fixtures were falling apart. The place appeared to be a haven for very low income type people.

We went down to Florida - to go to Mayo - and decided to try Scottish Inns. My brother- who was watching TV until later - got into his bed later on - around 1 am in the morning. But he discovered that his sheets were dirty - they had blood spots, and also dirt marks. So he called the front office - and they told him, that they do never give clean sheets out - and that we would have to move to another room - and by now it was going to 2 am. They told us - we could sleep on the dirty sheets or move - how do you move guests from one room to the other - at 2 am in the morning? Doesn't it make sense to just give clean sheets. I complained to the owner about it in the morning - he said "that is our policy" Of course - my brother slept on top of his bed - because he sleep on the dirty sheets - which doesn't make sense - because the blankets/duvets smelled so bad - I could hardly bring them to my face.This is the address: 2300 Phillips Highway.If possible - find a super 8 motel - or La Quinta.
