The Travelodge Forest Park-Atlanta is easily located off of I-75 at exit 235. The Travelodge Forest Park is only 8 miles from downtown Atlanta, 6 miles from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport and 14 miles from Atlanta Motor Speedway. Great location with several restaurants nearby. Southlake Mall is 2 miles away. Downtown Atlanta and Georgia Dome, home of the Falcons is only 13 miles and Turner Field, home of the Braves is 7 miles away. Add this to a great highway location and you have the best location in suburban Atlanta.
Everything was horrible very dirty 20mins away from the airport very far, worst motel ever
Housekeeping was excellent! The staff and owner were very friendly.
Continental breakfast was not much of a breakfast
The room is spacious, though the furniture is old and it does not supply free shuttle to airport. The worst thing is that the room has bed bug.
not a great neighborhood. inside, rooms were clean and acceptable, overall the facility looks a little shady. It irritated and insulted me that front desk photocopied my drivers license. Makes you wonder what kind of people are wandering around if they are taking this precaution.....
Clean rooms; small and worn towels; not convenient to airport; skimpiest continental breakfast we have ever seen; comfortable beds.
The room itself was very nice, however, the clerk at the front desk was very hard to understand with her accent. About 10:30 she called the room to verify information. About 10 minutes later another call to verify info. We readied ourselves for bed, another call. Someone was looking for another person. We told them we were in a hotel room and they had a wrong number. Two more calls, then lights out, and more calls. We called the front desk to complain. Lights out about midnight. Just dose off, phone rings. We tell them nobody here by that name, they call back, we get mad. Its now 1:30 am. We call the front desk. The calls continue. I get out of bed and go to the front desk. Girl is hard to under stand. I vow to unplug the phone! She promises to knock on our door for a wake up call. Back to bed about 2:30am. Come morning, no wake up call! We are now late to our destination. Not much sleep! Facing a 12 hour drive to destination. No offer of compensation for discomfort and aggravation.
I stayed at the hotel over the course of four days. When i checked in, i was greeted by a very friendly person at the front counter who quickly got me into my room no problem. When i got into the room, i checked everything out and was very impressed with what i saw. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and best of all there was no foul stench like some of the other places. The rooms were very cozy, and everything was functional. You can actually park right in front of your hotel room, which is what i did. There were no parking fees whatsoever. I ran out of soap and i asked the front desk who had it handy. For those of you looking for something close to the airport, this hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta. IT IS NOT AS CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN AS ADVERTISED! BUT IT IS ONE OF THE NICER HOTELS IN THE ATLANTA AREA AND THE PRICE CANNOT BE BEAT. If you have a reliable means of transportation, then by all means stay here and don't worry about its location. The hotel is close to several fast food restaurants and close to the interstate that takes you downtown. I would definitely stay here again :) ...
The bed and hotel room were nice here. The hotel staff was friendly. I hadn't ever been to Atlanta before and was looking for an easy hotel to crash at before heading north the next day. It was pretty difficult to find using mapquest. I would stay again, but wouldn't recommend it for people wanting a hotel close to the airport.
I chose this hotel for 3 reasons:1-price; 2-location (the article led you to believe it was close to the airport); 3- reviews (most of the reviews were great). It was too remote for someone who did not have a rental. It was not easily accessible to public transportation and it was not wise for a female with luggage to walk a mile to the nearest bus stop. I had to take a taxi into downtown $35. I won't choose this one again... Post email address only
We were looking for an inexpensive room that was close to Turner Stadium and Forest Park Travel Lodge filled the bill. The room was clean and roomy enough for us.
