Ramada Plaza Hotel Macon

... all of the bad things I said earlier about toll roads, this very nice lady was so helpful to us and probably saved us an hour or two of going nowhere on the interstate. That $9.75 for tolls today was money very well spent.
So, now we motor down the highway only to run into hundreds of thousands of bugs. They were so bad that wipers could not clear the mess. A stop at Walmart let many of them into the RV ...
... the airport to the Groome station. Unfortunately our bus to Warner Robins was full, so we had to wait for a second bus. In the meantime we threw a Frisbee back and forth until it got stuck on the roof of an awning in the airport. The bus eventually came, and we arrived in Warner Robins without complication. The family excitedly greeted us with homemade "Welcome Home" signs. It is good to be back; praise God for a safe and amazing trip! :D
... we drove past Ocala, Gainesville, Alachua and even got to get a glimpse at the exit to head toward Florida's capital...Tallahassee.
So we decided that today would be a great day for driving and doing some making good progress on our home schooling work..yeap we decided that this trip would be a wonderful opportunity to continue our home schooling. Social studies is covered really well with this trip ...
[May 19] WOW! There is so much left to do that I am very thankful that I still have about 802 hours to get everything together :) Up until this point, the #1 priority has been the itinerary. Long hours past 04:00 (yes, that's am), lots of online collaboration with Albert, guidebook and internet searching ad nauseum, and trying to talk to everyone-who-knows-that-turkey-is-not-j ust-a-food has produced results! Right now our itinerary is a full three pages of Go! Go! ...
... rides of an extreme nature designed to be challenging and "fun". I meet a couple of great guys, Bob Lutz and Herman Kuebler, and rode 1000 miles with them. I am now an offical member of the Iron Butt Association. I saw the Ultimate Coast to Coast Ride on the IBA's webpage. I was already planning on riding to Deadhorse, AK. Why not ride from Key West to Deadhorse ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Plaza Hotel Macon
I was there for a business meeting. Because I've had a prior bad experience at the hotel I did not stay overnight. I drove 2 hours to return home and drove back to Macon the following day. The public portion of the hotel was filthy. There was mildew on the ceiling of the conference room. The room smelled stale. I won't even go into the condition of the public restroom. Suffice it to say I waited until I returned home.
Will not be back!
I just got back from a conference at the Crowne Plaza and my experience at the hotel was horrible. I checked in around 10:00PM. I went to wash my face after a long day of traveling only to find that I had no towels in my room. It took quite awhile to bring them up. I awoke the next morning at 6am only to find that there was no hot water. They had told me that the problem would be fixed shortly. An hour later I took an ice cold shower. The facility was extremely cold. When we inquired about how cold it was- the person said they were not on duty. People were leaving the conference due to the coldness. The food was terrible. All around- it was an aweful experience staying at the Crowne Plaza.
I just returned from an overnight stay at the Crowne Plaza Macon and was very disappointed in many aspects of my stay. The beds are comfortable which is about the only compliment I have.
This was our 3rd time staying at the Crowne Plaza. Just gets better every time. We started having quarterly meetings last year and hopefully will continue to. As we checked in, the front desk was more than happy for us to be there. It seemed like everyone we had contact with was in just the best mood. They catered our lunches both days and it was just fabulous. We decided to eat in their restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. This hotel really makes you feel welcome, outstanding service in my book. Not to mention their new bedding, this is to die for. They even gave us a relaxation CD to listen to... I slept WONDERFULLY
I was hesitant to stay here after reading some of the negative reviews, but we enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and clean, service was good, and I recommend paying a few bucks more (I think it was 6 bucks) to have breakfast included. The food was pretty good for a hotel and the service was good too. We stayed at this hotel and went to the Keith Urban show at the Centreplex and the Crowne Plaza is the closest hotel. If you are going to a concert in Macon and don't want to drive far after the show , this is a good choice.
Better than Most Hotels
I was there on Business. Checked in on Sunday, Staff very courteous. My entire stay was Good. I was disappointed at the parking. The parking spots are too tight and the parking lot is not safe for women travelers. The Crown really need to work on new parking in this era. More SUV's are on the roads. The furniture in my room needed to be replaced. The dresser appeared to have water or termite damage. Bathroom could be a little bigger. The housekeeping service got worse over time. They didn't clean the room as they should by the end of the week. I stayed there for 5 nights, compared to what my co workers said about their motels, I was in luxury. Will I stay there again ? hmmm I am still indecisive.
Less Than What I Expected
We stayed in a 2 bed room suite with living area. I was surprise to see that there was not a kitchen, nor microwave, nor refrigerator in the room. The bedrooms were smaller than any suite that I have stayed in. Overall the accommodations were very much overpriced. The saving grace at this facility is the very helpful and courteous staff.
Not up to Crowne Plaza standards
I stayed in this hotel as part of a group in October 2002. The room was quite large and well laid out but let me tell you that is where the compliments end. It was more like a $30 Motel 6 than a Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza. YUCK
There were ants on all of the tables at breakfast (they got into the sugar and jam and honey on the table) NASTY
Not worth the money
Was very disappointed in this place with their check in time rule it sucks, would not stay here again ever, would advise anyone seek other hotels before considering staying here, its not what I Thought Crowne Plaza Represented.....
My business associates and I were in Macon to facilitate a conference - we were told we could check in as early as 7 am (we joined their "club" to ensure this). When we actually arrived around 11 am, we were informed that we could not check in prior to 3 because they had been full the night before. When we explained what we had been told, we were asked if we could "walk around" or "go eat." For four hours. The front desk staff was less than polite, in their suggestions.
