Opened the dresser drawer and there were baby cockroaches. The bathroom fixtures were broken and taped together. The room was nasty and small. Don't stay there. I told the cleaning people the next morning and they seemed surprised to hear about the roaches..they said a bug man sprays there regularly. Don't go stay there.

During the four years that my uncle was incarcerated, I would stay at the Star Motel. The owners (husband and wife) are so sweet and caring. The rooms are always clean and you cant beat the price. Check in is 24 Hours & they accept cash! Fortunately my uncle is not in Georgia anymore, but I cant wait to visit...

Death in family left us traveling 13 hours overnight to Folkston. We had no time to book or let some family members know how many were making the trip. So looked at some reviews on Tripadvisor. Well the place must have changed just a little from some older but OK reviews. The rooms were total filth and one of the...

I have stayed there many times. It's not the Ritz, the rates are reasonable. The main reason is they accept my four legged Son, Pierre. We love to watch the trains there. The rooms are just ok. the bathroom could use a face lift, but we get by.

As my job takes me back to the same areas at times I wanted to give an update since 2010, I stayed here again and found everything was fine as before, they have blocked the adult channel while surfing the channels, you now have to enter in the channel manually which is good for people with children, this is the...

I recently traveled to the Okefenokee Swamp for two nights of canoe camping. With recommendation from the local Chamber of Commerce, I chose the Star Motel to rest before, and after, my camping. The room was clean, quiet, and had a fridge/microwave/Wi-Fi. The owners were very attentive to my needs and knowledgeable about the area. Very reasonable rates. I will...

The Star Motel is a 1960s vintage motel. Don't expect Hilton but the room was comfortable if basic. The room comes with a fridge and microwave oven and flatscreen TV. Certainly, the facilities are old but the very friendly owner more than makes up for any minuses. My wife even did yoga with the owner in the morning. We would...

I stayed there last year and I plan to stay there again. It's clean. Everything works. Great price. I also enjoyed the cable tv that included a free adult channel. All I can say is if you have kids with you don't turn it to the adult channel and don't let them have control of the tv. I enjoyed my...

The reviews on this site led us to stay here. I can't imagine how this place ever managed to get a single good review. I would say the place was rundown but I don't think there was ever a time when it looked decent. Worse though is that it was absolutely filthy. The bed was made but pulling back the...
