Stayed at this hotel for three nights. The front desk people was very nice and helpful. The breakfast was comparable to other complimentary breakfast. When in town again I will stay here a again. I was here before and chose this hotel then also. This is my first selection every time in the area.

Great location, very nice property, close to many restaurants. The bed was very comfortable. Nice flat screen television. Nice layout of room so it was not crowded. Also, very nice to be able to have my dog...Good area to walk dog with doggie bags available.

Large rooms and very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our refrigerator wasn't working staff made it a priority to fix it and the 2nd night a staff member recognized us and asked if it was working ok. Breakfast was good as well. Bacon eggs and biscuit and gravy, Waffle maker, bagles,fruit yogurt and very few cereal choices.

So thank you for being such an awesome sport about it. As I am sitting here reading your review about our breakfast, and... More

The staff at this location were very friendly and the gracious manager went well above and beyond to secure the type of room we needed. The room was clean and pleasant, the bed very comfortable and breakfast better than many. A very nice establishment that has a few extra amenities (laundry room and frig &microwave in its own little alcove).... More

Our vehicle broke down and we had to spend three days waiting for it to be fixed. Two of the nights we stayed in this Best Western Plus. VERY nice property.

My wife and I and our two Boston Terriers decided to spend two weeks exploring Georgia. During four days we stayed at Best Western Plus (Lake Vanier). We had a suite. So we had plenty of room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was superb....and crowded. We used the room as a base to explore the area... More

My only complaint was a rattle in the A/C unit, but it was fixed with a slap to the plastic cover. Fairly convenient to Road Atlanta, and plenty of food joints nearby. Getting into the hotel from the SE is a little difficult due to the road intersections.

My family took a much needed weekend getaway. Since lake Lanier is close to home, the best western hotel offered the most for less. The staff was the best feature.
