This place was awful. Stopped for a cheap stay on our way to Daytona from Atlanta. The place was disgusting. After further review it turns out dead bodies have shown up! They refuse a refund after 5 mins in the room. It smelled awful. Hairs on toilet. I clean sheets and towels. I mean if I could I'd give this...

Absolutely disgusting! Roaches in sink, stains on bed, no toilet paper, no towels, greasy table tops, and $55 not $40! Really bad vibe at this place. Have no idea how they're not shut down. Horrible. I think the dumpster outside looked more inviting. Never again. If you have any smarts at all don't stay here, all reviews are bad and...

The large sign on top of the office says $35 but that isn't the case. If you want to have a supposedly refurbished non-smoking room in building A, you have to pay $45 before taxes. A smoking room in building B is $40. This building hasn't been remodeled. The room that I got in building A had been refurbished with...

I have made the Jolly Inn my 1/2 way stop between Naples, Fl & Calhoun, Ga. I have stayed at this motel for at least 10-12 times. I have NEVER seen one bug much less the dreaded bed bug or roach! I can't understand why people are always dissing this place and making false allegations that I cannot substantiate. It...

We stopped at this hotel after a long day at the race track. On a budget, We were just looking for somewhere we could get a shower and a little sleep. Of course we didn't expect much judging by the price but they had a few signs on the interstate stating "newly renovated rooms" so we gave it a shot....

My disabled son and I stayed in the Jolly Inn one night on our way to North Carolina. The lady at the desk told me she had a newly renovated room. The room was incredibly filthy. The sheets had not been washed, there were big spots that I knew what they were, pubic hairs on the sheets, stained coverlet. It...

We had to stop because we were exhausted from driving and there were no rooms anywhere. The next morning there were cockroaches on the wall and the water was brown from the faucets. I do not recommend this hotel.
