Our volleyball team stayed here overnight during a recent tournament in Gainesville. The rooms were clean & comfortable, and staff was helpful. The included breakfast had a decent selection, perfect for a quick meal before heading out. If you need a place for a quick overnight, this is a great choice with several fast-food type choices near in close proximity.

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast area was well kept with hot, fresh food available in the morning. I would stay there again if my travels take me to that area. The bed was comfortable and clean. There were plenty of towels. The tv contril was sanitized. I felt safe as a woman traveling alone.

Nice and friendly people at the hotel for check in and check out. The hotel is decorated well and there is a nice touch to its feel when you arrive back from work. Calming!!! I definitely have changed my views on staying at a Best Western after this trip. I think they are doing a great job at rebranding and... More

Nice room and amenities, however it had a dog smell. We got used to it, but others may want to ask for a non-pet room, if the smell would bother them. The breakfast and lobby area were great. And free coffee 24/7. The parking lot was small. It was totally full when we got in one night and we had... More

Dear GaryhI2112QZ, Thank you for taking time to giving us a great review and also giving us a heads up on the pet room you stayed in. We do have treatments for the pet rooms so that if a non pet owner stays in one of them they should not notice the difference from our other rooms. We do get... More

Nice place to stay at when you are in the Lake Lanier and Gainsville areas. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is refilled as needed. No waiting for food. Right across the street form Lanier Tech. College.

Hubby & I were visiting Lake Lanier on our summer "Staycation". After reading the reviews for this hotel, I decided to book it for 4 days. I was not disappointed. Wonderful, spacious & clean rooms, modern bathrooms, & pet friendly. Breakfast was one of the best around with REAL eggs and not the powdered kind you get elsewhere. I'd definitely... More

Needed a place not too far from Atlanta, yet close to the North Georgia Mountains and decided on this Best Western Plus in Oakwood GA. It was also rated very highly and for good reason, great staff and service and clean rooms! Me and the kids were going fishing in North Georgia and needed a reasonable nice place to stay... More
