We stayed the weekend at the mountain creek inn. Although the outside of the hotel looks really old, the rooms are clean and comfortable. I feel they should add mini refrigerators in every room without the extra $10 charge. Probably give guests an option to have a microwave for $10 since there are not too many restaurant options.
The flowers werent in bloom yet at the gardens but we enjoyed the bicycle ride, boat rental and the beach area.

Thank you for your input. We'll be sure to share with the General Manager of the Resort. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the room as we just finished a major redo of the Mountain Creek Inn and its lobby. We took it down to the bare walls and floors. We appreciate your taking the time to post. Azaleas are now at peak. We do hope you are able to visit again in the future.

The Mountain Creek Inn at the Callaway Gardens Resort has seen better days. It is a tired resort badly in need of an update. HOWEVER, it is clean and met our needs for comfort and location. That having been said, we had a sleepless night due to inconsiderate guests partying loudly outside of our patio view room. At midnight I called the desk and they promised to send security. I called twice after that. It was well after 2 am that the party stopped. In fairness, I believe that security did honor our request because the noise quieted for a few minutes after each visit. On the last phone call, we announced that we would not stay the second night as planned. The last straw was the very noisy plumbing that woke us up after only a few hours sleep. When we stumbled down in the morning to check out, they had deducted our second night. Amid profuse apologies, we were offered a deluxe accommodation for the next night. We accepted this offer and went about our plans to explore the beauty of Calloway Gardens. Thank you to management and to Brittany, the desk representative for your generous offer. While we would never stay at the Mountain Creek Inn again, we would consider other accommodations within the resort. If your room is far away from the patio, and you don't require state of the art amenities, you will have a good stay. The pool was great for lap swimmers! The breakfast buffet was huge.

Room Tip: Stay far away from patio.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I am so sorry to hear about your experience at the Mountain Creek Inn. I can assure you that our team works tirelessly to try and provide the best experience possible to our guests but we have failed you and again I am very sorry. I am glad that management was able to save the trip for you so that it was more enjoyable. We have recently renovated the Main Inn Lobby to included 3 additional check-in terminals to be able to expedite the process ensuring a much more smooth arrival experience.

Your feedback is valued and we do hope to see you again in the future.

Our stay at the Mountain Creek Inn was excellent. Every staff member we encountered was helpful and friendly. Everyone seemed happy in their job which makes for a very upbeat feeling around the Inn. Room was clean and comfortable. Thought was put into making everything in the room feel like home including toiletries without parabens. Breakfast buffet was fantastic, everything you could ever want. We ate dinner at the restaurant in the Inn and the food and atmosphere and service was top notch. Very relaxing, left feeling happy.

As a gift we were given 2 nights to stay on our trip back from Florida, check in was pleasant and efficient, the room we were assigned seemed a long way from anything but it really was not. It was a well appointed room with everything working and had a small patio which overlooked the great lawn and the lake on the golf course. It faced west which gave us very nice sunsets for the nights we were there.
We went to the bar before dinner and had a drink or two the bartender was very good and helpful with our questions I am sorry I did not get her name but a very pleasant individual to chat with.
There are 2 options for eating we opted for the seafood buffet which was excellent even though the Inn was full for the night there were lots of choices and everything was hot really enjoyed this meal.
Would recommend this Inn as a must if in the area.

We are so pleased to hear that your entire stay with us was great! Your review has been passed along to Guest Services, Food & Beverages and the rest of the staff. Mountain Creek Inn rooms were renovated early 2013 and we just recently renovated the lobby of Mountain Creek Inn. Callaway Gardens has succeeded in updating the Inn so that it matches the beautiful Gardens that so many people come to enjoy. Thank you for visiting with us and we do hope that you will return again.

I stayed in The Mountain Creek Inn at Pine Mountain, Ga. in order to visit Callaway Gardens. I left my very special "squishy" pillow that I travel with because most hotels have pillows that hurt my neck. It's very hard to find the perfect pillow, and the pillow case was part of my sheet set at home. The manager, Ms. Grant, went the extra mile to track down my pillow and mailed it to me. Two thumbs up for caring!

We booked a cottage for our family so that we could take the Fantasy of Lights Christmas Tour. On the plus side, the two bedroom cottage had enough room for the five of us to spread out. On the down side, it appeared little attention had been paid to maintenance in a long time. Furniture was worn, bedding just looked old and worn, in one of the bathrooms a mirror frame was actually hanging loose from the wall by 8-10 inches. It didn't appear that anyone from housekeeping had inspected the place before our arrival.

Check in was a zoo.

Kitchen was very poorly equipped and lacked some of the basic utensils needed to cook basic meals. Because the place was so expensive, we brought food to cook for dinner and breakfast; without normal utensils you find in rental condos it was sort of like camping. So fine for our overnight stay, but if we'd planned to stay longer, we would have needed to locate some kitchen tools. If you are going to stay here, bring some of your own kitchen tools.

No, would not stay here again and would not recommend it.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us during Fantasy In Lights. I am so sorry to hear about your experience in our Southern Pine Cottages. I can assure you that our team works tirelessly to try and provide the best experience possible to our guests but we have failed you and again I am very sorry. What I can tell you is that the ownership of the Cottages is in the midst of doing several projects to the units that include new bedding, and several new décor items including additional kitchen utensils and other items to ensure a better guest stay. As for your check-in experience, next Fantasy In Lights when we have 600+ arrivals we will be better equipped to handle that volume as we have recently renovated the Main Inn Lobby to included 3 additional check-in terminals to be able to expedite the process ensuring a much more smooth arrival experience.

Your feedback is valued and we do hope that in the future you decide to give us another opportunity.

We were there on a church retreat in February. Was very surprised to find I had to kick the door in to gain enterance to the room. Maintainence said this probelm had existed for some time. Sleeping was great - beds wonderful. Had to get past lady bugs a time or two. There was no het in the bathroom which made for cold getting out of the shower. Tried breakfast buffet to save time in the morning. Was overpriced and not that good. Went to a little country inn on Sunday and breakfast was great there. Save your self some aggravation and stay elsewhere
