Excellent Inn Tucked Away in Atlanta

5 on May 11, 2015

Sugar Magnolia is a wonderful inn very convenient to downtown Atlanta. It is in a beautiful historic neighborhood, and although I was traveling for business, my stay was a great departure from standard hotels. I stayed in the Royal Suite which still is a great value for the area. The room was very spacious and checkin was a breeze. The bath in the Royal Suite is huge - very spacious with a jacuzzi tub that I did not use. Breakfast was great and ready right at my requested time. The staff was very courteous as well. Overall just a wonderful experience. I will definitely stay there again when I am in Atlanta.

A grand old dame come back to live!

A perfect place to visit Atlanta, just a short drive into the city. We selected the "Royal Suite" and enjoyed relaxing on our balcony after a day of sight seeing. Kathryn, our Innkeeper made us feel welcome and prepared delicious breakfasts. We definitively will stay there again on our next visit to Atlanta.

Great B&B close to downtown Atlanta

We stayed at the Royal Sweet and it was peaceful and romantic. Staff was excellent, and breakfast was great! The area was great to walk around and enjoy the older Victorian houses. Short driving distance to Downtown and Dining.

Great service, great alternative, close to downtown

Days after my stay, i'm still talking about it. What a great experience I had at Sugar Magnolia. The people were great, the B&B and room were cozy, clean, and comfortable. Close to downtown, and easily accessible to the MARTA Inman Park Station, which was a critical item for me. This stay made my recent business trip, and this is where I'll go next time I'm in town. I would very much recommend it.

An Exceptional Spot with Southern Charm

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Sugar Magnolia in the Royal Suite room for five days. Not only is the house beautiful and conveniently located, but the Royal Suite was a great room with an amazing sunken jacuzzi tub. The bed is nothing short of magnificent--like sleeping on a cloud. Kathryn was personable, helpful and a superb cook. We looked forward to breakfast every single day! Debi and Jim were welcoming as well. I highly recommend a stay here. It's definitely in my top 3 Bed and Breakfasts.

Wonderful B and B !

We met friends here this past weekend. We arrived around 2pm and no one was around. There was an envelope next to the front door with our name on it as well as the others who were checking in that day that contained our keys. We found our room and explored this beautiful home. We stayed in the Garden Room which was larger then we expected. Very sunny and cozy. I brought a bottle of wine and we decided to open it and wait for our friends to arrive on the porch. We found wine glasses exactly where they said they would be in our rooms welcome book. About 15 minutes later miss Josie came out of the front door and welcomed us. She stays in the guest house in the back. She told us of some great restaurants with in walking distance. Our friends arrived and we all had a nice welcome on the porch. We all would return. Kathryn made two excellent breakfasts, French toast with fruit and a lovely individual quiche with fresh fruit.

Safe, Lovely Location, with Excellent Service & Helpful Staff

I stayed at this lovely inn just recently. The staff, especially Kathryn and Josie, were very attentive, and they made sure I was comfortable. They went out of their way to be of assistance to me. I was a single woman traveling alone on business, and I felt very safe and happy here. Wish I could have stayed several weeks! The breakfasts were delicious and nutritious, very well-presented. The location is ideal if you don’t want to rent a car, but need to go downtown, as the MARTA subway station is a scenic quick walk from the inn. I highly recommend Sugar Magnolia for travelers to Atlanta. A great alternative to sterile, high-rise hotels.

Great Location!

Had a very nice two-night stay at this wonderfully located B&B. Staff was attentive and breakfast was tasty. Short drive to all attractions in downtown Atlanta. Stayed in the aviary room, which was very comfortable. No toiletries in the shared bathroom, so bring your own. Would stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry there were no toiletries in your bathroom, which is only for the Aviary room. We do provide those, so that was a definite oversight on our part - I do apologize! Next time you stay with us, we will provide some extra special toiletries. :)

Romantic Vacay Stay

4.2 on July 25, 2014

A truly lovely place full of the romance and charm of a by-gone era. We stayed there because our room had it's own bathroom and a second floor garden deck. The only downside was that while our room could be locked from the inside, it could not be locked when you went out. There were also several rooms, porches and the garden for relaxing. The neighborhood held several parks and other beautiful homes and was safe enough to walk around in. The breakfast was top notch and it is always interesting to talk to fellow travelers. I highly recommend a stay there.

Charming, upscale, historic B&B

5 on July 16, 2014

Quick, easy drive from airport, LOVED this charming, upscale, historic B&B With only 1 night in Atlanta, we wanted a unique quiet place to relax after a 5 hour flight. No traffic issues, found the Inman Park area home after only a 12 minute drive (!!) with free street parking. Our Garden room was larger and even lovelier than the website shows, shaded by old-growth trees and backed with an upstairs deck in back. Nice friendly next-door neighbor lady and Kathryn the manager, tasty frittata breakfast, and drove to dinner only 2 minutes away - Rathbun's, cool vibe/chow/people. Found out we could have even walked to another great dinner 3 blocks away - so convenient! Next time. (No A/C in room but ceiling fans did the trick in June.) Wish we had time to sit in the front porch gliders - real Southern charmer! Sally and Ron, WA state

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the kind words and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We apologize that the central AC system was broken for a few hours on the evening you were with us - our regular service got it fixed at midnight!...but glad you were comfortable enough with the fan. Come back to see us again, and we promise to keep you cool :)
