So we decided to try the other side of Atlanta this time. Much better. This time we found a place that is a little outside of the city but felt so much more friendlier. The price was amazing and it included parking which i wasn't aware happened within a 30 mile radius of Atlanta. The hotel was very clean. Breakfast was good. the best part was the staff. They were so nice in general. They didn't seem to be bothered like so many other hotels in the area. They restored my faith in the greater Atlnata area and have now found our place to stay again when in the area.

Hotel sierra
Arrived here late at night and nice lady at the desk checked us into our room in under 5 minutes.

Walked into the room and the first thing I noticed is the extremely soothing sound of music playing on the digital music/clock player and the room was at a nice cool temperature. The beds and sheets were extremely comfortable and the sheets were clean.

Bathroom was spotless with plenty of bath towels, however they could probably be replaced with newer plushy ones.

Arriving so late, we were hungry with no nearby restaurants open except for a sports bar but, having kids in tow, decided to opt for the options in the hotel's vending machine which was not too bad. We purchased some Schwann's frozen chicken pot pies for $3 each and that satisfied.

Room was fitted with microwave, small fridge, sink, utensils, dishes, glasses, cups, coffee maker, dish soap and paper towels. Hotel Sierra you are amazing!

The comfy sofa converts to sleeper sofa and room came equiped with a nice desk to do any work on.

Woke up too late to take advantage of the buffett free breakfast and never had a chance to eat at the nightly free dinner but the menus looked very enticing - spaghetti, bbq, hot dogs, burgers, fruit, chips, drinks. This place is awesome!

Out the back door if you walk across the street, you'll find a Starbucks, Subway, Costco. This appears to be a very newly developed area of Alpharetta and looks secure and maintained. ATT was right around the curve from Hotel Sierra.

When I arrived in my executive suite for a Friday and Saturday night stay I thought I had made a mistake. This suite was very well furnished and spotless. I saw a bathrobe hanging in the closet area. I saw a complete kitchen facility. The queen sized bed and pillows were quite comfortable. The desk/table was large enough for my laptop and paperwork. All this plus breakfast which included made to order egg omelets and Belgian waffles?

Now I have stayed at other extended-stay hotels before but they were not of this caliber. That's why I thought I made a mistake. Within the first hour of my arrival I kept checking my booking documents that I printed off to make sure the price is what was stated vs. what I was seeing.

When I checked out I spoke briefly with the desk clerk about the prices. She mentioned that the prices do change daily depending on demand and so forth, but she said, on average the room rates are much higher during the Monday thru Thursday period.

Anyway I would definitely recommend this place if you can get it at a reasonable rate. Also, know that the wireless internet access is of the cheap variety. Don't bother viewing videos with it, you will be frustrated due to the constant buffering. But if that's not important to you, then you will definitely like it.

My Room: 2 double beds, couch ( i believe it was a pull out but I didn't even check). Once you walk in there is a couch, coffee table, desk, little fridge, small microwave, sink area. You can get a room with a full kitchen with a big fridge and stove.
Shower was standard with shampoo/conditioner and shower gel pumps in the shower.
There is a hair dryer, iron, ironing board.
The fan/air con is very noisy.
The vanity is outside of the bathroom. When sharing a room this is very handy.

There is breakfast with made to order omlets and waffles. They had continental items as well such as bagels, muffins, cereal plus scrambled eggs and bacon. Starbucks coffee and juices plus some cut up fruit.

All in all it was a good stay. I didn't check out much of the hotel in all honesty

We were so happy wth our choice. The rooms were PERFECT!! There was a LARGE sofa with a chaise lounge at one end. It was perfect for our 9yo daughter to sleep on, Especially since we didn't have to pay extra for a roll-away bed. It has a small kitchenette that is perfect for storing left overs. The breakfast was delicious. Waffles and eggs/omlets made to order. A delicious tropical fruit salad mix. We will without a doubt stay at Hotel Sierra on every trip to Alpharetta going forward. There is NOT a better hotel for the money out there. We HIGHLY recommend staying here!!!
