Reviewed 27 August 2016

Hotel was pretty nice. Staff was great especially Ellis!! Awesome service and very accommodating!! If I ever go back to Columbus I would definitely stay here. The windows could use a little cleaning however in the rooms and the door entries. Ellis needs a raise or promotion or something :)

The hotel itself is convenient and clean. The room was fine. However, at about 12.15 a.m. I heard someone rattling at my door as if they were trying to get in. Fortunately, I keep the deadbolt on at night. A few minutes later the same thing happened again and I spotted a man outside my door. By this time, I...

Hello Helen P, Thank you for allowing my team and I to accommodate you! The security of our guest is a high priority, so I am horrified to read what you had to encounter during your stay.

My plans were to stay here one night, but I got sick. The staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful. I called for room service and I was told they did not offer it on weekends, but one of the ladies brought my breakfast. The hotel is nicely decorated and very comfortable. It is convenient to the highway,...

This is my first visit to this property. It is at an major intersection, about 15 minutes or so from Fort Benning, GA. It is an older property and two story, very spread out property with centrally located pool. Easy check in, but folks there did not recognize my Platinum status. Staff is very efficient and polite. Only issue I...

The hotel and the room looked very, very modest, but I have had best sleep at this hotel in a very long time. It must be built on a magical spot of some sort :-) I could not recommend breakfast, however. The hotel was very kind to issue us free breakfast vouchers, but we briefly looked at it and decided...

Very nice hotel and very clean! The rooms were updated rooms as well as the main space. Staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel was close to the highway, so easy access when we arrived. Wifi was great and so was breakfast.

My husband and I spent 4 nights there while visiting family in Columbus. I was afraid the first night because of staff attitudes, but it got much better on following days.

The hotel is by the side of a main road with resulting traffic noise. We were warmly welcomed by the receptionist which was nice. Our room smelled strongly of carpet freshener and the carpet was very wet near fridge and sliding outside door. The room was dark, dirty and basic. The mattress on the bed needs replacing as it sags...
