Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, amenities
I think there is an effort underway to improve and spruce up the inn. My room was very adequate although it could have used new sheets, blanket and bed spread and the curtain was hanging down on one end and did not cover the window completely. I was concerned when I checked in that the property might be used by hourly renters. There was a sign in the small lobby saying you had to file any complaints about your room within fifteen minutes. I could not get on line although they had signs posted about the password. I put in a call for a wake up call at 730, and I got a call at 630 with someone telling me that they had seen I requested a wakeup call but no one had written down the time. That was particularly unfortunate. I got to sleep at 12:15 but at 4:15 the people in the next room began to make a lot of noise, talking loudly, banging on the headboard at one point, and going in and out of the room banging the door each time. I finally got back to sleep around 530 and then had that most unwelcome wakeup call at 630. At that point I gave up, packed up and got on the road home. I had hoped to see old friends in Atlanta for brunch, but with an eight hour drive ahead of me even if I didn't go to Atlanta, I canceled the Atlanta plan and headed home, stopping to nap along the way - truly exhausted.

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The office staff was friendly and courteous Room was clean, towels could have been much better. Bad thing is that there iwas too much noise during the night. People making noise in the parking lot and dogs barking. The walls are also so thin that if someone is talking very loud in the toom next door you can hear their conversatuon. Slept very little because of the noise.
