At this Hotel the staff made the difference they were all great and I really mean that. We went up there hoping to see some snow and we were not disappointed it was so nice up there. If ever in that area I would recommend this property.

During the summer of 2014, my family and I visited the Hiawassee, Young Harris, area of Georgia to visit some friends of ours. Normally, we stay in rental cabins, but we were rushed on time and limited on money. Hotels are very scary to us (not knowing how well they are kept and how well the staff works to meet... More

Stacy and Cheryl where fantastic from check in to check out!We received a free upgrade to a wonderful room. The lodge feel to the hotel was the best, very homey. The lobby reminded us of the Wilderness Lodge at Disney World. The breakfast had different options than the ones my husband and I have been to so that was a... More

My normal stay would be at a 4/ 5 star hotel but this was an emergency trip to an unknown area for me and not too many choices available - but what a nice surprise in Hiawassee! My hosts had provided me to use their camper( without heat) and I withstood it for three days and then opted to get... More

Hotel could use a little TLC and updates but the staff is friendly. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Jacuzzi tub was a very nice surprise. Breakfast was typical free breakfast. Rolls were warm and good. I would stay here again.

Had a large room w/nice amenities & was very quiet. Only cons were peeling wallpaper & old mattress. This place is definitely low-end for a HIE, but still had a nice stay. Great coffee & good breakfast. Wifi worked great.

This is a run of the mill Holiday Inn express. It's clean and the staff was very helpful. The put out a rather large breakfast with a pancake maker. I wasn't pleased about smoking being allowed in some rooms in the hotel but I never smelled it. We were a last minute stay so we didn't give the location much... More

For a Holiday Inn, I think the property was a little below expectations. The check in was great and friendly, grounds in good shape, and everything worked as intended. Free breakfast had a few hot items that were good. The room was large enough for a family to stay. The downside was mainly the peeling wallpaper, the tub caulking was... More
