"Inn" is a big misnomer. This is a side-of-the-highway 50s style motel and a most undistinguished one at that. Yes, it is clean and the plumbing and A/C work. But, ugh!!! Ugly, small rooms looking las if they were never nice, let alone after years of use. We stayed here because of the great reviews on TA. How misleading they...

We were very impressed with the staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and clean. They had a full kitchen with stove, refrigerator and sink. My daughter loved the pool. Would stay in this hotel again.

Oh my goodness. I am so sorry you had trouble with the shower. There is plenty of water, both hot and cold. You must not have turned it on correctly. We have a doorbell at the office door which rings into my apartment for any after or before hours issues. I wish you had come to us and we would...

It was so much more than I expected. Having traveled back and forth from the midwest for 10 years I have seen my share of good and bad. This motel was great. I was just there for one night. It's a strip motel so the room wasn't huge but big enough for a king size bed, dresser, desk, night table...

I recently attended a class in Augusta which involved an overnight stay. I found Axell's online with a great rate and made my reservations. I have pretty bad allergies and requested a non-smoking room in my reservation. Not more than an hour after my reservation was made, I received an email response confirming all the rooms were non-smoking. Upon arrival,...

I was a walk-in guest at Axell’s Scandinavian Inn, and the young man at the desk invited me to look at a room first. He was very friendly and made a great effort to recommend all the local places to eat. The room was nice; it was very clean, and the whole motel was quiet. I thought there was someone...

Thank you so much for your review. I am very happy that you found our guest rooms to be clean and comfortable. Also, thank you for your suggestions. I am having my husband install towel rods in the 4 guest rooms that have the sinks separate from the bathroom. I just never thought of it! And no one has ever...

Fairway Motor Lodge was my home 7 nights May 2-9 2012. Traveling as a single, I'm very aware of my surroundings & alert to my safety. I was very appreciative of my quiet location & natural setting.

The Scandinavian Inn is a great family motel. The owners and staff are very welcoming and friendly. Of all the motels I stayed at while on my trip to the USA this one was my favorite. I would defiantly stay there again and recommend it to other visitors of the Augusta Area.

The staff and owners are great people to do business with. They are more like friends. This has become a home away from home. I feel safe there and the rooms are so clean and the feel of home is there in every room I have stayed in. I highly recommend staying here if you are going to be in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just west of the Augusta line, we are two, small, locally owned and operated motels with all the amenities of a large one. Innkeepers, Sheila and Kent, have worked tirelessly to make each and every guestroom unique, comfortable and full of amenities that they themselves would like to find while they are traveling. You won't find "cookie cutter" guestrooms here, all guestrooms are decorated differently, so if you don't like the style of one, we are sure we'll find one you love! When you visit, you must take a dip in the new inground, salt water, heated pool, located at the Fairway, just one mile from the Scandinavian Inn ! It is fabulous! ... more   less
