Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Lavonia
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Lavonia
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lavonia is a quaint small town in NE Georgia close to Lake Hartwell. Not many lodging options of this standard really here. We stayed one night on 21 Feb 2013 while on a business trip to Hartwell. Upon arrival we chilled in the breakfast area before retiring for the night and got complimentary beers ... Nice.

Rooms are big and very plush. Slept well.

The Breakfast next morning was basic but fresh and kind of worked.

Lake Hartwell seemed like a great tourist destination. The city people are friendly and simply awesome. They just want you to come back.

Paid USD 114 + 17% Tax

Room Tip: They have elevator so higher floor rooms can be nice. Stayed only one night after a rather tiresome...

Stayed here while working in Toccoa. Very nice staff who gave great suggestions for dinner. Breakfast and coffee was great. Very clean rooms. New facility. Right at interstate but no noise. Cookies in the evening was a great touch after all day driving.

This hotel is wonderful. No, there isn't a golden fountain in the courtyard, no Godiva chocolates on your pillow. But what you will find is a little like going back in time.

Our family first stayed here on a lark, we were visiting a museum in nearby Taccoa and had always been somewhat lucky with HIEs. What started as a lark has turned into at least 2 trips to Lavonia a year just because it is such a neat small town. Real restaurants, not a lot of chains, nice antiquing, beautiful lakes and camps nearby.

The hotel is perfect, the staff seems to really care about directing you to a nice dinner, a good bargain, or whatever you may need or just chatting. They are more than responsive to any needs you have and are very family friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious. Last year, we were there over the Easter Holiday and the staff let me work on and keep the kid's Easter Baskets downstairs so they could be surprised as they opened them in the Breakfast Nook.

We now travel there for our anniversary every year and, in fact, are traveling there for just that date in several weeks. Is it the Ritz? No. But it is a taste of old time small towns from an era when people cared about others and didn't spend all their time texting or facebooking. The hotel is a trip back in time that you will be glad you took.

Happy New Year! And thank you SO much for posting a review of our hotel, the Holiday Inn Express & Suites- Lavonia!
I truly appreciate the kind words and I am also happy that you enjoy our “Mayberry like” hotel and town! There are many hidden treasures here that get passed over for shopping malls and such. It sounds like we both agree on that!
I want ALL of my guests to feel at home, taking advantage of our free hot breakfast, free high speed internet, heated indoor pool and all of the other great amenities we offer. You and your family are very important to me and my staff! I am glad to hear that y’all have made our hotel a tradition! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Stayed one night at this hotel. I received a complimentary water and chocolates for being a Priority Club member (free to sign up).

The room was clean and spacious. It had a kitchenette, with a mini fridge, single serve coffee maker, microwave, and sink.

It also had a small couch, chair, & coffee table, along with a round table & 2 chairs.

They serve breakfast which is included with the room. It had pastries, cereal, eggs, sausage, and few other things. Juices and coffee were available also.

Overall, a very good experience.

It is my pleasure to endorse Holiday Inn Express in Lavonia, GA. I am a weekly guest at this property and have never been disappointed. This "three year young" property is beautifully maintained both inside and out. The rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The full breakfast offers a variety of hot and cold items every morning and guests can enjoy a complimentary cocktail reception during the week Mon-Thurs (I have yet to partake of this due to my work schedule but I have seen it and hear it is good.) Amenities include:a guest laundry room, business center, free wifi, indoor pool and fitness room. The staff is courteous and eager to make guests feel at home. If you are looking for a place to stay in the area, for business or pleasure, I highly recommend that you choose this property. It may be a bit more expensive than the other two motels that are within close proximity, but as they say, you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from the elevator are quieter.

Fantastic experience. Kind of expensive for being out in the middle of nowhere off the interstate. Staff was friendly, rooms large and clean, grounds kept up. Great breakfast. Highly recommended.
