We needed a place while on our way to Florida and the location is the only good thing about it! Will drive farther next time! Expected a little better! It definitely needs updating ! Glad we had cash since the credit card machine apparently wasn't working! Stayed at another property in Macon last year and it wasn't that bad!

I was evacuating for the hurricane and booked through Booking.com. I changed plans and went to Augusta instead. I called directly to Howard Johnson and canceled my reservation. The guy at the desk said he would tell his manager. They charged my credit card for two nights any way and said there was nothing I could do since I didn't... More

Holes in walls Looks like floors have been vacuumed in a year Food stains on the bed shams The worst/dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The only reason we stayed is because it was so late and we couldn't drive any longer.
