The room was spotless and everything in it functioned well. Large comfortable room with fridge and microwave. Onsite laundry was very helpful. The facility is very hiker friendly. While all... More

While we missed the free hot breakfast the next morning (served til 9:30 a.m. on weekdays) we did... More

We have stayed here before, but the hotel has been upgraded and improved since our last stay. Rooms were freshly updated with very nice amenities. Our king room had a whirlpool tub with shower which was amazing after a long day of hiking! Continental breakfast was fresh and had great food selections. Staff was very friendly! Will happily recommend!

This is your basic Holiday Inn Express. Friendly staff, room was ready when we arrived, clean and stocked with the basics as you would expect. Executive room, bed was comfortable. Good breakfast, basic continental fare. Warm cookies at night!

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 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.
