My wife and myself visited Helen Ga, after review and evaluations of the local hotels, we found that booking with the Holiday Express in Hiawassee (17 miles north) was a wise investment, the hotel is new and very clean and we were extreemly impressed with our room for the price, the pictures are true.

My wife and I stayed here as we visited Young Harris College for our daughters college orientation. We were greeted by a very nice clerk who checked us in quickly. The room was very clean(which is VERY important to my wife). The beds were comfortable and the air worked well. The breakfast was very good with eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal,... More

The staff was extremely nice and the decor and landscaping beautifully done. We had a nice view of the mountain from our lower level room. The breakfast was typical but good (I've been to some with cold or hardened food - this was not the case). The morning we were leaving the pool was going to be late opening and... More

This hotel is cost efficient, yet nice to stay in. Very nice, might I add.

We booked a room with 2 queen beds. When we arrived we had to full sized beds instead. The entire lobby and hallways smelled of cigarette smoke. It was not what we expected. The room itself did not smell. The mattresses were horrible-- you could feel the springs, and sleep was lacking as a result. We stayed for 2 nights--... More

We walked in without a reservation and was offered a very reasonable rate considering the amenities. The room was very large and the bed was comfortable. The pool area could have been cleaner, but I did enjoy the hot tub and pool. The breakfast was good. I would have rated this hotel lower, but the value was very good for... More

The room was clean but the heat/air unit "knocked" all night. The unit was off but it still made noise. You could hear the showers running in other rooms. Breakfast was a disaster. They had one person on duty in the kitchen and people were standing around waiting for the food to be put out. The hot water dispenser was... More

This hotel is extremely outdated. Hunter green carpeting, peeling wallpaper, sticky bathroom floor,unpleasant odor throughout. The rooms are hot and stuffy due to inadequate cooling system. The furnishings are tired and shabby. I'm sad I have to spend the night here. I hope you never have to.

I showed up in the late afternoon and was able to get a room without a reservation. I was surprised at how large the room was and it had amenities. Contrary to what others have said about the place, everything worked well in my room and the A/C-heater noise wasn't bad. If you are accustomed to a Hampton Inn breakfast,... More

Outdated room's. Missing the desktop friendly electrical outlets. Had to pull out furniture unplug light's to charge my devices. The free Holiday Inn Express breakfast continues to be a big disappointment. Time for a overhaul HIE ?
