I found this place itself to be good and having security guard in the car park seemed to make your feel abit safer, not that I felt unsafe in the room but I wouldn't have walked around the area. The only bad thing was all the people hanging out on the corner pretty sure it was all homeless people they were probably harmless but the amount of them didn't make me want to walk around anywhere. We wouldn't stay again only due to the location and amount of the people hanging around other than this would be good place.

Well I usually don't write reviews for hotels but this time I would to offer advice. Please stay away this place. I booked online as I to attend conference in Atlanta world congress center and was close location. When I arrived its located in scary unsafe street. I went to checkin and she couldn't find my name. So she had find me a room. I wish she couldn't at that time but I know she was lying ad I asked the security guy who told there is a lot of empty rooms. Anyway the room sucks with bad smell. Everyday when I some back I find the fredge empty and they also take my personal stuff. Don't leave anything in the room as they Will take it. Even your shoes . Imagine you care about your laptop and other important stuff. Pay a little more and save yourself. I wish I could read reviews before abx avoid the hassle and nervous stay. Never before and never after.

Following up to the complainer of the gunshots.. that's simply NOT TRUE.. my son & I have been staying @ the Suites since the 8th as well and if I would have heard the gunshots, we would have definitely left that night. Yes, there is a high amount of homeless individuals in the area, since there is a homeless men's shelter right up the street, there is prostitution in the area, but unless that's what you are looking for, you wouldn't directly see it. I have not seen any roaches. Wherever you see issues in your room, request another room or upkeep of the room while you are out.

Room Tip: 3 or 4th floor would be better .. there are elevators .. it's diverse .. there are mothers/ fami...

I booked this place for 3 nights because of its proximity to the hospital and I didn't have a car. I have traveled extensively and never had an experience as bad as this one. The drug dealers and prostitutes standing in front all night were bad enough, being accosted by whinos and worse just stepping outside my door was not pleasant, the paper thin walls with a fight raging next to me I could have done without, but the 8 gunshots that rang out directly in front at 3 am would have had me leaving immediately if I had thought it would be possible to get from the door to my room into a cab and safely away. At 6:30 am there were still throngs of people outside screaming - as they had done ALL night long - and I knew that walking even the 3 blocks to the hospital was utterly out of the question. One of the worst travel experiences I have ever had - I would urge anyone to stay ANYWHERE but in this place.

first off this place is unsafe for the reason why the security guards had handguns. I was greeted by a couple of roaches in my room. Smell of this room was unbearable & of course broken mattress so much for TV in order to turn on/off the tv we had to unplugg from the wall, lights made noise as they were turned on. We couldn't bare to stay a second night there. To top it off it's near a homeless shelter. Please don't stay here for your own safety.

Positives....
Great low price. Pretty clean room. Great location. Walking distance to Aquarium and Coca-Cola (about 1mile) 24 hr security. Nice view if you're on the top floor facing entrance to hotel.

Negatives....
Dirty towels. Homeless people hanging around near the hotel (the 24hr security pretty much keeps them off the property). Free wifi connection that SUCKS!
Overall, this hotel wasn't bad. We had no problem with paying, no problems with the homeless people around it. And its not bad for the price!

The location wasof this motel was fine ..The room I had was anon-smoking it was clean and the beds were very comfortable.the staff was friendly and kind. The price was a little more than I was used to payong for Economy motels but it was nice. The carpet was clean and the bathroom had a wonderful scent of lemon ( pine-sol maybe?).Enjoyed my stay
