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

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

Clean. Quiet. No smoke odor. Good decor. Good amenities. Very good breakfast - the scrambled eggs of the breakfast service were very good in a venue they typically are average to very bad. I hate it when there is a minimum number of characters requirement.

Decent hotel, unfortunately the room air conditioner did not work and I did not sleep as a result. When asked for an adjustment, the hotel manager took off $10. Definitely did not make up for the lack of sleep. More of an insult than compensation for poor maintenance of the air conditioning.

As hot as it is here in Georgia, that's the one amenity that needs to be working efficiently. Our MOD for the day you checked out didn't... More
