The Dothan Area
Pleased to be named a 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award winner, we’re looking forward to accommodating you on your next visit to our special corner of Alabama. Called "The Peanut Capital of the World," one-quarter of the peanuts grown in the U.S. come through here for processing. We’re easily accessible via three major highways. U.S. 84 comes through east-to-west, and U.S. 431 goes north-to-south. U.S. 231 circles round so you’ll hear us being referred to as "The Circle City." Our guests are served a free Bright Side Breakfast® each morning and benefit from free high-speed Internet among the amenities offered by the area’s best value-added hotel. We’re pet-friendly as well.
Peanuts are a big deal, and so is our National Peanut Festival held each November which attracts visitors from all over the area. Regionally speaking, we’re in a corner of Alabama that almost straddles the borders of neighboring Georgia and Florida. Considered the gateway to Florida by those on road trips from the north, we are located only 100 miles from Tallahassee. On the way, pass through the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area and National Forest. This is the Wiregrass Region. Named for the distinctive grass sometimes called Bermuda grass, it’s native to our local ecosystem and commonly found covering much of our tri-state region.
Hotel Services and Amenities
After a comfortable night’s rest, begin your day with that first cup of coffee in your room before heading downstairs for a free Bright Side Breakfast. Choose from cheese omelets, waffles, sausage, biscuits with gravy, hot and cold cereals, pastries, bagels and muffins, plus all the juice and coffee you like. If a swim sounds good, the refreshing outdoor pool is big enough for laps. A fitness center is handy, too. For those who prefer to pack light, rooms are well-equipped with microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker, hairdryer, alarm clock, iron with board, and a guest laundry down the hall for wardrobe refreshes. Stay connected via high-speed Wi-Fi or by tuning in to one of dozens of cable TV channels.
We’re located five miles from historic downtown, where murals painted by acclaimed artists depict our story of early explorers, railroads, steamboats, cotton, logging, music, and more. Some 22 local themes decorate our buildings, creating an open air gallery. Golfers are spoiled for choices with four courses, including the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Highland Oaks. The kids will surely enjoy Adventureland Theme Park, The Fun Zone, Water World, and a recreated early 1900s farmstead at Landmark Park. Wiregrass Museum of Art and G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum appeals to all ages. Love trivia? Drive by the world’s smallest block recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records at the corner of N. Appletree and Museum Streets.
