My wife and I stayed in a suite in this relatively new hotel with other family members in nearby rooms. The "newness" of this Homewood location is still apparent, since the facility itself has literally nothing immediately around it. However, directly across Bass Road are some restaurants, a Public and other new retail shops. The Homewood is very convenient to I-75 and is just a short drive to plenty of restaurants and Macon proper.
The staff was friendly and helpful, and had no issues with us asking about staying an extra, somewhat unplanned night (prior to check-out, of course). The free breakfast was pretty good, although as another reviewer mentioned, they had to work extra hard to keep up with refilling the food servers and coffee urns. The lobby area is large and comfortable, with various table sizes to accommodate small or large groups for breakfast. There is an always-open convenience "shop" right next to the front desk, and items can be paid with cash or simply charged to the room.
The rooms are the best part of this place. We had a suite with a king bed, and it was big and comfortable, with plenty of pillows. The room AC was controlled by a digital wall thermostat, a nice touch for a hotel, since most hotel thermostats are hit-and-miss. The suite included a full kitchen, plent of table utensils, and plenty of furniture for relaxing and working. The TV was a large HD flat screen with plenty of channels, but nothing in HD (this would be a nice touch if they added it), and a DVD player. The suite includes free Internet access, both wired and wireless. The bathroom is roomy with a great massage shower head.
One of the nice touches is that most of the suite has tile floors vice carpeting. The area around the big bed was carpeted, but the bath, kitchen and most of the living area was tiled. My wife liked that a lot. The rooms include other little touches like big digital clocks, heavy drapes to keep out that annoying morning light, and plenty of internal lighting.
The hotel has a large, clean pool and a workout facility, though we didn't use them on this trip.
All-in-all, a very lovely site and highly recommended for any kind of stay in the Macon area.
