This is an older property but well maintained. Check in was quick and they had their staff jump on preparing my room since they knew I was waiting which is something not all hotels will do for you. They act like a family run property and not like a big chain. Fresh baked cookies in the afternoon was a nice... More

The breakfast area has no logical traffic pattern, tables are too big causing dead end maze channels. A lot backing up and looking for another way to the food and coffee. All carbohydrate(sweets) food choices, no yogurt. The carpet is decades old ( stayed 20 years ago) and the rooms were musty smelling. Beds were comfortable, pillows were acceptable, the... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to see that you didn't find our breakfast layout up to your satisfaction. You were here on a busy weekend and during a time when many guests were getting food at the same time. You must have overlooked our yogurt because we have it available everyday of the week on the breakfast... More

This is an older property built in 1995 and was once a Ramada Inn. Great location. The rooms are done in pine furniture. My husband and I loved our stay here. Bed was more comfy than the Hampton Inn in Murphy, NC. Room was very clean and ours had a balcony overlooking the lake - beautiful view. The usual breakfast... More

We started out as the Lake Chatuge Lodge in 1995 and have decided it was time to go back to our original name. I am glad you found our beds comfortable and the rooms clean.

Book a lakeside room and relax - this place feels like a mountain lodge, with a real stone fireplace, club chairs, and a patio with a view of the lake. Rooms are large, comfortable, and reasonably priced. "Breakfast" wasn't impressive, but we didn't really care.

Our lakeview rooms offer great views of Lake Chatuge. We do have a large stone fireplace in the lobby as well as comfortable couches to relax in. Our patio off of the backside of the lobby offers relaxing rocking chairs to take in the beautiful surroundings. Our breakfast is included in the price of the room and is a continental... More

My husband booked us here for my birthday weekend and it was great! The room and view was amazing. Definitely planning on going back soon. The staff was very friendly and great at doing their job. I want to go back and get the same room for the amazing view we had.

Enjoyed staying at this motel, service was very efficient and friendly, front desk clerk was knowledgeable about the area. Room was average, bedding was very nice though. Our room had a view of the lake, that was beautiful and relaxing. They have a hot breakfast on weekends that was appropriate. There was a good feel to this place!

We had the most beautiful view from our room! We were on the lake side. The morning sunruse was spectacular. Our room was very clean. Loved the porch off the lobby area to sit with friends and share stories. Would stay there again!

We have stayed here several times. Beautiful view, clean rooms, and friendly staff. Call hotel directly to make reservation and ask for a lakeside room. Very close to the fairgrounds and concert hall (walking distance). Short drive to shops and restaurants. Close to Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. Great place to relax.
