I've stayed in every Hartwell motel, and this is by far the best. This is not a five star motel because of amenities, but it is a 10 star hotel in terms of its service. The entire staff led by Melissa is unfailingly helpful, gracious and just plain friendly. Our room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was satisfying, and... More

Best Western Lake Hartwell is the best place to stay in Hartwell GA. The staff is wonderful. If there is a problem they are very happy to help. Even thought the breakfast is not a hot breakfast, it is sufficient, including some microwavable items. The hotel is very close to shopping in Hartwell. Be aware, however, that this is a... More

Best Western-Hartwell Inn is great! I highly recommend this hotel to everyone. You get a great stay for a good price! Housekeeping and ALL of the staff is so nice and very friendly!

Overnight with grandson before a fishing trip next morning. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Room was clean, but carpet needed serious cleaning. A comfortable night and reasonable value. Breakfast was standard continental fare. No problems with check-out. I would stay there again. Options are few in Hartwell.

Hotel and personnel were nice. The only thing was trying to sleep later than normal due to a long night. I put the do not disturb sign on my door and I wasn't bothered. It was the cleaning staff in the halls very early in the am getting on a jump on cleaning the rooms. Can't the rooms be cleaned... More

Thank you very much for your response. I do want to apologize for the early morning noise due to the Housekeepers as they do start their days around 9:00 a.m. however I will definitely pass on your suggestion and appreciate that you stayed with us and hope to see you again!

This hotel was wonderful! The rooms were clean and the staff was over the top especially Melissa! There was a continental breakfast and coffee every morning. The housekeeping kept clean towels and sheets. There were vending machines full of goodies. There was a Super Walmart across the street and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Also a Dollar General right... More

Nothing hateful or remarkable. Just your average hotel in small town America. Was there for one night so not much else to say. Little over priced but not bad. I'm sure I'd have more to comment about If I had stayed for more than one night.

My room was clean and well appointed with a pleasing decor. This hotel is kept in great shape and has a professional yet homey appeal. What is the icing on the cake for a stay here is the excellent customer service you receive. I have been at other hotels where this is a thing of the past. Not so here.... More

This was absolutely the best BW experience I have had--even far better that the BW Plus category properties, though it doesn't have all the amenities required for "plus" designation.
