I am going to see the Padres and Braves in Atlanta this summer. I have checked out the suggestions in the chaser guide and am thinking about staying at the Country Inn and Suites right next door to Turner Field because we will not be renting a car. I have seen very contrasting reviews of this hotel on line and i was just wondering if anyone on this site has stayed at this hotel? I hear it is not in a great part of town, but seeing as we won't have a car to worry about, that doesn't really bother me, I am more concerned with the hotel. Thank you for any opinions.

i did atlanta last year over memorial weekend, i stayed a couple of nights at the jw marriott buckhead, literally right across the street from the lennox marta station. which made it a 1 seat ride from the airport, and a 1 seat ride to 5 points station where you catch the bus shuttle to turner field, you can't miss it, just follow the signs and the groups of people wearing braves gear. and they have traffic lanes set up in a loop from the station to turner and back around, so after the game its pretty fast to get back to marta, as they just fill and go

Thanks guys. I have decided to stay near the airport because we are getting in the same day as one of the games we are going to and I think it will be faster to quickly hit the hotel and then get back to the airport to get on the MARTA. Thank you all for your suggestions and input. Have a good summer and I hope you all hit a few parks this season.

I stayed with my family at the Hilton Atlanta in downtown Atlanta and really liked the location. We were able to walk to the main attractions although Atlanta has more hills than I imagined. The aquarium is the best I've ever been to and my kids loved Centennial Olympic Park (there are some cool fountains shaped like the Olympic rings - they were drenched by the end!) I liked the park more than I thought I would. It always looked a little dark and desolate on TV but it was much nicer in person. We did have to sit through a two hour rain delay but no big deal. We're Phillies fans and for better or for worse we got to see Charlie Manuel's last game as the Phillies manager. We ate at The Varsity and were a little disappointed. It was more of a fast food place than a diner so maybe it just didn't meet my expectations. We had a car so we drove to the park but as Eric mentioned there are public transportation options. The area around the park isn't the best.

Turner Field is actually pretty accessible via the MARTA, including taking a shuttle bus to the ballpark from the station stop (I think it's the Underground Atlanta stop). There's really no need to have to stay right there.

Hey Dustin- thanks for pointing this out. Their latest reviews are horrible and it makes me want to take down the recommendation. Please let me know if you end up staying there and what your thoughts are.
