Normally, being right off the highway is an advantage, especially for tired travelers. This hotel is almost in the middle of a huge parking lot surrounded by a gas station, and a local fast food joint. Still no problem, food and gas right at your fingertips, right? Well, if you have a family with small children, it's not exactly ideal. There is a lot of traffic moving around this area all of the time, so it can be dangerous. The hotel itself is nice and clean. Not spectacular, but not horrible either. Macon has several decent hotels in nicer areas, I'd check out the others first before settling on this one.
