Great Hotel BUT..... – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Pleasantly Surprised – I made these reservations for me, my husband and my parents for the UNC/LSU game in the Georgia Dome. I wanted a place close enough to walk there. This one was the closest at the right price. I then read the reviews and was a little terrified of what we were going to find...especially since I made the reservations. I don't know what the fuss was about. We had the single room (not the budget, but the one up from it..i think economy). The room itself was small, but the bathroom was big. Nice refrig and microwave. Two sinks! One in the bathroom and one in the"kitchen" area. The bed was a queen. Now, our bed was a little noisy (sounded like a leather couch) and we had to fix the frame (no big deal). I think they weren't ready for a full house because we did have to ask for towels on saturday. The staff is SOOOO NICE! I asked for extra pillows...got them. Asked for extra towels...got them. Yes, if you go a few blocks behind you will see an icky part of atlanta..so just don't go there! Downtown restaurants are about a 15 minute drive from the hotel. Go eat breakfast at the Metro Cafe and then walk to the Coke museum or the Aquarium for a tour. All in all, I was so pleased I couldn't wait to write this review. The price is right and the convenience to the dome is AWESOME! My only suggestion to them is to put curtains up in the room to make it darker at night...blinds aren't that darkening
New and Improved! – Castleberry Inn is now Castleberry Inn & Suites, a 143 room boutique hotel that experienced a renovation in 2008. Castleberry Inn & Suites offers guests clean and comfortable rooms, professional staff, complementary wireless internet and parking and are partners with LOFT at Castleberry Hill, an event facility, Paschal's Restaurant, featuring Southern Cuisine and The Salon & Spa at Castleberry. We are walking distance from art galleries, boutique shopping and restaurants. Castleberry Hill is a residential neighborhood that has been revitalized and is a popular area in Atlanta for locals and guests alike!
If you have not experienced Castleberry Inn & Suites lately, please stop by for a tour from the Sales Manager. You will be impressed with the upgrades and changes.
Stay away, stay far away – Though the website looks nice, and they offer a "fitness room" (which consists of a non air-conditioned closet sized room that, at the time of my stay, had broken and out of order decades old equipment) this place is horrible. The staff is decent, they offer no airport shuttle, no breakfast, no change is available for the only vending and ice machines located on the first floor, the closest place to get a newspaper is three blocks away, the non-smoking room and the linen changed daily smell like smoke, the room was the size of a small shoebox, the tv is located hospital room style in the top corner of the room and is about the size of a deck of cards, and the surrounding neighborhood probably not the best place to be walking around at night. Stay somewhere downtown, especially if you're here for a conference, or an event at the CNN Center or the Georgia dome, etc. This may sound like I'm a nit picking whiner, however, let me assure you that even a standard room at the Super 8 beats the absolute hell out of this joint. As for the pros- the air conditioner works well as do the microwave and mini-fridge.
