I was not impressed with this Inn. It was quiet. There was fruit at breakfast. The desk staff were nice and helpful. The linens were clean. Now the bad; the foyer, steps and hall carpets dirty. Room carpet worn of poor quality. Wall paper curling everywhere in the room. The room was cold on entry and took all night to... More

All of the staff that we spoke with were friendly, especially in the breakfast area. The hotel was a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The King executive room was of good size and we very much enjoyed our stay.

The staff was great and easy. The location itself was close enough to lake. Room was very nice and clean, really enjoy the jacuzzi tub in room!. I definitely encourage friends and family to stay here.

I reserved a room with this hotel due to them having a pool, jetted tub, and much better rates than other HIEs in the area. When the pool was not available (due to remodeling issues because of recent weather conditions), the hotel called me two days in advance to let me know that I could cancel my reservation even though...

Reviews by others were on the mark. This Holiday Inn Express is in need of refreshing, however, it was clean and comfortable. Nothing looks shabby or excessively worn. The breakfast room was well stocked with good food. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is back from the main highway making for a quiet stay. The room rate is... More

Hotel is nice. The price is better than in Helen. The rooms are larger and our room had a whirlpool tub. It has an indoor pool and breakfast is eggs and bacon or sasuage. The bed has been comfortable and staff very friendly.

We stayed overnight (Friday night) as our normal hotel in Murphy NC was very expensive during leaf season. The HI Express was fine and the reception staff were friendly. A clean quiet room was what we needed and what we got. Nothing more and nothing less. Well satisfied. Thanks

This is a great option when traveling through North Georgia. The friendly staff and easy-to-find location make it a good one or two night stay in the Hiawassee area. Plenty of parking. Free breakfast. Complimentary fresh-baked cookies at check-in!

Great hotel right in the center of Hiwassee...great mountain views from our room too! Clean, comfortable, wonderful free breakfast, friendly staff and reasonable rates. Good water pressure too...lol. Great restaurant close by...make sure to go to the Ga Mountain Restaurant just down the road. Home cooking diner...delicious. It's where the locals eat.

The hotel has a very friendly and welcoming staff. The property and its furnishings are showing its age and are in need of updates and a complete refresh. The coffee maker in the room lacks any coffee even after the staff had cleaned the room. Internet services are also very spotty and slow.
