Wow I thought Hoiday inn express would be welcoming was I wrong. Expensive, and breakfast you had no place to sit and eat. But the worse part was we are geocachers and went to cache 300 feet from front door and was rudely told you can’t do that here. So geocachers AVOID this hotel and the cache.

Hi ClydeH961, Thank you for sharing your experience at the Holiday Inn Express Dahlonega. We offer everything guests need and provide more where it matters most, but I guess you felt otherwise. I read how you felt shortchanged during your stay, and I also regard your concern on how the staff called your attention when you went to cache 300 feet from the front door. I sent you a private message to discuss this further. I shared your comment with the hotel management, who responded with genuine concern about the impact this had on your stay. I hope you will give us another chance to prove that your unsatisfactory stay was an exception. All the best, Jeraldine R. Case Manager IHG Service

We stayed here over Xmas (eve and day) for 2 nights with our 2 children (8 & 4). The hotel is ok and easy to access. Staff seemed friendly enough although not overly warm in their welcome. Rooms are reasonable, the hotel is dated with some minor updates in the rooms however probably needs and overhaul considering many of the Holiday Inns are pretty nice. Room size is ok but again bathrooms are dated. Breakfast was included and plenty of it especially as there didn’t seem to be too many guests over Xmas. Food was pretty good. We had a 1st floor room which was easy with kids however there was an adjoining door and we could here the neighbour word for word, not very private. Overall ok but would have expected a bit more over Xmas, didn’t really go out of their way and there was minimal decorations etc. Dahlonega is nice but nothing open over Xmas so don’t waste your time visiting on Xmas day.

Not worth $250/night. Bed sagged in middle. Checkout is 10am. Rooms overlooking the gas station or a motel next door. Breakfast only served till 9:30. If there was more competition in the area, this hotel would be a total dump. Not walkable to anything except said gas station and McDonald’s.
