“Delightful Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

My husband and I recently made a trip to Historic Warm Springs, Ga for a weeked of rest and relaxation. We had such a great time in this quaint community that we came back the next weekend to explore some more.The hotel has a quiet, relaxing atmosphere and is furnished with lots of antique furnitire and memorabilia . There is a super homemade Fudge Shop that also serve Blue Bunny Ice Cream on the main floor.

Room Tip: During the course of two weekend visits we had an opportunity to look at most of the rooms. We staye...

We were originally going to stay for 2 nights, we had to leave after the first night and we couldn't even leave when we checked in because we got there so late. The smell of the hotel is awful. You hear rats at night. I saw a rat crawl out of the hotel into a street outside. We called the second day to cancel/get a refund when we left since it was early in the morning and the owner didn't want to refund our money even though we didn't want and couldn't stay there any longer. My mother has really bad allergies and equilibrium problems due to her fibromyalgia and couldn't stay there because of her health. The owner didn't care and worried about her money instead. I don't recommend this place at all.

We thought we liked the history this hotel represented. It is well-positioned in the center of town, close to the attractions (e.g. 'Little White House, Dowdell's Knob), and has hosted some people of renown in years past. We stayed two nights, and included breakfast. We are well-travelled though younger; we enjoy excellence but refuse to be snooty or demanding to experience a quality standard.

The curb appeal is good. It sits at the bend of Broad Street, its front entrance at the top of a set of steps. Parking is at the side, including some parking next to the adjacent Warm Springs Visitors Center. The lobby shows a few photos of FDR and the hotel in years past. He was known to have visited the ice cream parlor there on trips to town. An antique switchboard was seen behind the front desk and was an interesting piece of nostalgia.

We were greeted Thursday evening by the owner/operator Gerry. She asked for a breakfast time for Friday morning. We gave her 8:30, as we planned a full day but weren't in a rush. At 8:55, the dining room was quiet as we sat there. My wife made a trip up and down the stairs to explore the hotel a bit, reading some framed articles while we awaited breakfast. I had read of a previous account where breakfast didn't occur. She highly touted her breakfast at check-in the night before, so I couldn't imagine it was all a ruse. The squeaks from the stairs soon prompted her to emerge, wearing the same clothes we saw her wearing at check-in, obviously having just awoken. She stated that was only the second time in her many years that she had overslept, despite a previous account I read. Breakfast slowly emerged in a staggered fashion as she quickly tried to catch up. The cheese grits and biscuits/preserves were delicious, the coffee tasty. The scrambled eggs and sausage were very ordinary, as was the "award-winning" banana nut bread. A small sliced fruit selection was included. The table service was attractive, but my wife had to wait for silverware at our second breakfast. The orange juice was inexplicably frozen on the second morning. The breakfast was identical each morning.

The room, sadly, was among the two worst rooms I've seen over the years. It was possibly the worst, but I don't wish to appear to exaggerate. She apologized for a recent water leak, but the water damage and massively peeling paint on the ceiling seemed to be well-established. The TV was a box set and tiny--a decade past needing updating. The mattress was inexpensive and uncomfortable. Most hideous in their disregard for appearances was the ceiling fan. It was low-end when new, and was missing a blade.

The bathroom was previously a bathroom of normal dimensions; she informed us that it was split in years past to achieve two bathrooms, resulting in a tight bathroom/tub. Hot water was slow to come but adequate when it did. Basic soap and linens were well below average. The last person to paint didn't bother to remove the shower curtain, as dried paint drippings could be seen. The 3-light globe-style light fixture had two bulbs that were out and they managed to incorporate two different style globe lights.

The social areas were nice although the carpet is well-worn as mentioned by a previous post.. Décor is dated and of a country/floral style in many areas. She mentioned a game collection, but it basically was a game of checkers and some puzzles. The ice cream parlor appeared nice and they had a good selection of ice cream, although we did not visit it personally.

It appears the owner is towards the end of her tenure as owner. Logic would seem to dictate that needed renovations will not occur prior to her selling it at some point in the future. It needs much TLC but has incredible potential if ever updated.

My advice would be to stay elsewhere but do stop in to visit the entrance and the ice cream parlor where FDR visited. It is perfectly situated for that at the end of the shops on Broad Street, a refreshing end to a morning or afternoon of shopping.

Room Tip: Ask for a detailing of any room deficiencies before booking, especially if there is a limited select...

Fascinating to sleep in a 100+ year old However the breakfast was a disappointment. The refreshments in the evening consisted of a can of coke and a bottle of water. There was also an indication about a talk about the history of the building that didn't happen. There was only one other couple so that may have been a reason. Stay only if you want the experience of being in an old hotel with some history you can learn about on your own. The peach ice cream purchased in the shop was excellent. Including that in the evening social hour would have been a nice touch.

We were in town for a town sponsored festival and spent three nights at the Hotel Warm Springs. This is a 1907 hotel and although it has been updated do not expect the amenities of a 2000 era motel. Overall the staff was extremely pleasnt and helpful, the rooms were adequately furnished and the linens and towels were excellent. Because of dietary restrictions we were unable to partake of the excellent sounding breakfast. The hotel was quiet and peaceful at night probably depending on which side of the hotel your room is located. We were made to feel at home by the proprieter, the housekeeper and the other staff we encountered. We would definitely consider staying there again.

I was disappointed, because I love historic inns. I like to support those who preserve icons of the past...that said, I felt the Inn was "down at the heels". Old buckets outside the guest entrance with stagnant water and a sharp smell of mildew was the first indication that my expectation of a quaint, homey trip back in time was not in store. While the room was clean, the linens and carpet were very threadbare and worn. I love character, but the hotel seemed in need of a face lift and crisp linens. I had heard about the awesome breakfast, and paid extra for it. However, it was just "ok". It breaks my heart to write a poor review of such a potentially great old inn. The owner/manager was not around due to illness. This could have contributed to a lack of quality. I will give the Inn another look in the future and update my fellow explorers. Stay tuned.

Room Tip: Ask the desk to let you look at all available rooms before agreeing on one.

I have stayed at Hotel Warm Springs many, many times--it is delightful, clean as a whistle, safe, comfortable, reasonably priced, and offers a fantastic breakfast feast--not the continental stuff--instead, grits, eggs, biscuits, bacon, coffee, orange juice, etc.

And, don't let me forget Gerrie Thompson, the owner--she is charming and kind.

If you haven't stayed at Hotel Warm Springs, give it a try. It is like stepping back to the days of Franklin Roosevelt!
