I stayed at this property when it belonged to the W word properties. I never felt that the hotel really had its arms around running a property. I spent my first stay of two nights at the property since Mariott purchased and remodled it. I give it an A+++ for the money spent out of my pocket. The improvements are substantial, and the staff was superb. I even had my extra amenities in my room (which doesn't happen often ). I have to say out of my 120+ nights in a motel room tho past year, this property exceeded my expectations in every way. I put it in the top 1%. (Can you tell that I was impressed?) If you have a need to shop in the Mall of Georgia area, I would recommend this property hands down.
