We never had to drive once we arrived. The hotel is adjacent to a crosswalk that leads into a delightful town square. Breakfast was a free hot buffet. A pleasant night in a pleasant village at the base of the Georgia mountains.

First, the biggest plus was the best breakfast I have had at a motel in a long time. The lady attending it seemed to really take pride in her work too, giving us a warm welcome. There are plenty of spaces available for sitting too. There is a very cool lounge, like a classy library too. We didn't use it,... More

This hotel was excellent in every way (clean, well furnished, great at check-in, etc.), except the way the housekeeping staff operates. We were only there overnight and it started with a two ring phone call to wake us Sunday morning at 8 a.m. - no one was on the line. Then starting at 9 a.m. the housekeeping staff started pounding...

The motel location is great and that's it. There was no buffet breakfast. There's a train that comes through from 4 to 6 am. The ice machine area on the 2nd floor was nasty looking. The pool was closed.

Clean, modern room at a good price for downtown in a city of this size. Wireless requires an access code, a minor inconvenience, and ran at reasonable but not excellent speed. Ample free parking. Room service was provided by a young lady on her first day who forgot a few things, but she was cheerful and responded quickly.

The hotel is pretty conveniently located and easy to walk to the square with shops and restaurants from. They also have a really good buffet breakfast included in the price.

We stayed at this hotel over the Memorial Weekend, while visiting Georgia for the ACRA National Championships at nearby Lake Lanier. Although the location was convenient to the lake, that's about all I can say for it. Our room smelled like smoke, even though after complaining to the front desk, they indicated that " all of their rooms are non-smoking."... More
