We planned on staying in Waycross at a regular chain hotel but found ourselves making good time and ended up in Folkston. There are few choices for lodging, a fancy expensive B&B, and three motels. Trusting Tripadvisor reviews we picked the Western Motel and were happy with the choice. It is true that in another town with more choices this...

Was happy to find a clean comfortable room so close to the Okefenokee Swamp. My advice is to stay in Folkson and get the the swamp before 8 am to see lots of wildlife before the traffic in the swamp gets too heavy. Saw an incredible array of wildlife by getting out early.

This was our second time to Folkston to visit the Okefenokee Swamp. Both times we stayed at the Western Motel. It's not great but it is the best the town has to offer. Both times we've been there we've had to wait for someone to show up on the premises to check us in. We are not real picky and...

Where do I begin. Read the review for this motel and thought this would an ok choice. When we got there we notice there was No CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST as advertised. Just a coffee pot in the office. Only two lights worked in the room so it was pretty dim without the curtain open. Wi-Fi was very weak. No coffee maker...

Average is a relative term. In a bigger town this would be poor. Managed on the cheap. Cut AC off at the circuit breaker when they think you are out. Room had been cleaned, but missed water line ring in commode, unless the room is seldom occupied. Which might be the case in this out of the way town. Wi...

Look ok on the outside. We were tired and it was getting late so we stop here. No breakfast for those that eat breakfast. Not the most comfortable. Live and learn won't be back. Just not much available in that area.

This motel is clean and neat. Rooms are not sporting the cosmetic updates many other budget hotels have made - they are carpeted and have an older style tub enclosure, but everything is clean and tidy. I was confused by the rates available on-line, so called the property directly and got a rate that was in line with my expectations...

Stayed for three nights over the Christmas holiday. There are extremely few decent hotels/motels within many miles of Folkston. Fairly rural environment, so it was fairly quiet outside. The bed was very minimally ok: a sheet and a very thin comforter. Bathroom amenities are almost non-existent: two of the thinnest, worn towels I have ever used, two wash cloths and,...
