We were in the D Lodge Building. I was a little worried when I read that the mattresses are hard, because I am a Princess and the Pea, but I slept wonderfully. I would assume that we were in new beds and that reviewer was in an older one. Also, we had an elevator, so we didn't have to walk... More

The management team needs to sleep on those mattresses, with those pillows, for a few days. Classic hospitality lapse not to walk in a mile in your guests' shoes... The mattresses had a weird iron band effect around them that was very uncomfortable when we'd sit on the (hard) beds to get into them. The pillows were old, flat and... More

Always your first clue to a bad place is no people or cars...That was all true and more for us today. We checked in with no directions to anything but where to park and un~load the car. The room was very musty and the bathroom was very smelly and not clean. No refrigerator and the furniture was old and dirty.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Unicoi. The staff was more than accommodating. There were renovations being made to the lodge, and although we stayed in the old part that was pretty dated it's good to see they are putting money into it. You have to keep in mind, this is not a resort but a State Park so a... More

We stayed in lodge for 4 nights over the Labor Day weekend attending a wedding in the area. We had stayed there many years ago so knew somewhat to expect. After reading all the reviews with problems in TA we almost cancelled. Glad we did not. Yes there is a major renovation which causes some slight inconvenience, but in general... More

I went on a retreat this weekend and stayed in a barrel cabin, B6. The bathroom was downstairs, quite nice, and had plenty of hot water for 6 females showering off and on. I loved the scent of the soap. The kitchen was adequately equipped equipment wise for a short stay. There was no blow dryer that I saw. The... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my room was for a national park lodge. It was modest but functional and clean. The meals in their restaurant were simple but hearty and tasty. The views, surrounding hiking routes and proximity to Helen make it an ideal choice.

Unicoi Lodge was scheduled to completely renovation of the lodges and the conference center beginning January 2013 taking a year to complete. Unicoi has been a great place for family activities and we have gone up there several times a year. We assumed that by the end of August 2014 renovations would be complete. We made reservations for a king... More

Stayed in a barrel cabin. There were 60 steps on the path to cabin. Layout inside very strange. Bedrooms upstairs ,1 bathroom downstairs. One mirror in whole cabin in the bathroom. Bathroom flooring falling apart. No dressers in bedroom, bedside tables with one drawer each. I have stayed in state parks before and cabins were functional and in decent shape.... More

This is a great campground, with lots of things to see and do. The grounds are clean as are the bathhouses. It is located near Helen, Ga., which has it's own appeal, and near some great hiking and mountain bike riding. We trailered our Dual Sport motorcycles and launched into some great riding from the campsite.
