My wife and I drove to Lake Allatoona to pick up a boat and spent the night at the Holiday Inn Cartersville. The location was convenient. The building and grounds were clean. The room was a little larger than average. They have a bar in the hotel that closed around 10:30. We had been working all day and were already asleep. Some people from the bar were staying in the room next to ours. They stood outside our door talking in loud inebriated voices. After about 15 min. I called the desk and they quickly cleared the hall. There was a buffet breakfast included that was very good. Biscuits, gravy, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, cereal, good coffee, orange (and other) juices, milk, and more. The Holiday Inn met our needs nicely. I would rate this hotel a solid three and one half out of five. We would stay there again. I hope you found some of this information useful.

Stayed at this hotel one night. I did not have high expectations, it's just a Holiday Inn off the interstate, but I do think any hotel needs to meet some minimal standards of cleanliness and upkeep. This place was not up to standard IMO.

It is a two-story building, but you don't find out until after they have given you a second floor room that there is no elevator. Usually I actually prefer walking up and down a flight of stairs, but not with heavy luggage. There is a staircase near the lobby that is very rickety, it feels like the stairs are going to cave in as you walk on it.

The front desk person was not helpful or very bright. I asked her which staircase would be the closest to park near and then to get to wherever my room is, and she basically didn't answer saying any staircase would be good. So I went to one she pointed out and ended up walking all the way down the hall until I was right back in the lobby -- there was no staircase near where she said. And she couldn't have cared less.

Once in the room I suppose the place was clean enough. If you are looking for a very basic old-fashioned motel and don't mind a few details falling by the wayside then this motel would be fine. But if your standards are a little higher then you would not appreciate the experience I had.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times & find it a great place for our first night stop from southern Florida on our way north. Hotel has a restaurant for lunch & dinner and a FREE breakfast which is very rare for Holiday Inns. The rooms are clean & have everything our family needs. There is ample free parking & an outdoor pool.

We were traveling to the Atlanta area and were unfamiliar in which areas of town were the most family friendly. So, we decided to stay a bit North of the big city. We went through priceline and got a Friday night stay for less than half the published price. It was wonderful. The check-in staff was friendly and pointed out the restaurant and lounge locations in the hotel and also informed us of outdoor pool hours and breakfast times and location. It seems that this hotel has had a major renovation recently. Everything seemed new and clean with no weird odor that is in some hotels. All the rooms opened to the interior corridor and the halls were wide and clean. The room was big, comfortable and updated with 2 queen beds. Breakfast was in a very nice restaurant with well kept fish tanks which added a lovely touch to the morning. The buffet had hot biscuits, sausage, bacon, grits, etc and their was plenty of pastries, bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit on the countertop bar area. The attendant kept the area clean and well stocked and was friendly to the guests. A great stay and we would definitely recommend and stay again if we are back in the Atlanta area. There is a new Waffle House nearby and another family owned restaurant closeby in addition to the restaurant in the hotel.

Room Tip: Priceline $49 bid had great results.

Having stayed here twice previously, we had enjoyed great experiences as our reviews show.. And while this visit was good, we did not feel the property had maintained the same high standardswe had experienced previously.
We had first floor room which beats hauling luggage up the stairs. Our room had 2 beds and sofa...nice but a little crowded. Beds are very comfortable.There is a nice landscaped pool area but the shrubbery outside our room blocked any view we might have...would love to see it cut back. The rooms are clean but updating to both these and public areas would help make the property fresher. Given Holiday Inn's amazing image identity changeover,
I think it would be wise to work on updating.
The exit where this hotel is located offers very little in service so we have always been happy to have the restaurant on premises. We picked up a take-out from there to take back to room to watch NCAA basketball Final 4 and our meals were good. Without this restaurant choice, we would probably stay elsewhere.
Hope this long time favorite will work to return to the high standards we had enjoyed previously. In this competitive lodging environment, maintaining the status quo is not enough...

We stopped here on our way to Florida. We were having trouble finding a hotel and my 2 year old was melting down after driving in the car or 15 hours or so. We stopped there in desperation the lobby looks new and nice. The front desk gave us a coupon for buy one get one free drinks, and half off meal in the restaurant, we thought that was perfect. The room was very old and small. We order food from the restaurant menu and they didn't seem to have what was on the menu, it was strange. I would not recommend this hotel!!!

This Holiday Inn is a bit older property that has been well managed and maintained for sure! The rooms are spacious (although bathrooms are a bit small). The hotel does not have an elevator - 2 floors - just be aware of that when booking.
Very nice full hot breakfast bar for the guests too.
We fully would recommend this Holiday Inn and will stay again.
