I chose the Holiday Inn Express for my one night in Hiawassee, GA and was not disappointed. I arrived at 11:00 AM to the hotel and while there were no rooms available so early in the day, the hotel cleaning staff knew I was tired and quickly cleaned a room on the 3rd floor so I could get some sleep....

We loved our time here because as we walked into our very large room, we noticed that we had a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and sink and when you have as many kids as I have, the kitchen is a super bonus. The staff was super nice and my children couldn't wait to get to breakfast to see the woman...

Stayed overnight for a business trip. The staff was pleasant, but the common areas were not well kempt. The Elevator carpet was just dirty and worn. The room was ok generally clean but definitely old décor and lighting. In all I think this motel is ready for an interior face lift top to bottom.

My family and I stayed at this hotel in April 2017. We were greeted by a sign on the front door that said "renovating...please excuse our mess". They weren't kidding. But the whole place was run down and nasty. Our room was very dusty, beds were very uncomfortable...could feel the springs, and mattresses were saggy. The workout facility was in...

Booked for two nights. Front desk people were rude, when I walked up to the desk before I could say anything I was told, 'if you don't have a reservation you need to leave." No housekeeping at all, yet they want a tip.

My six year old grandson and I spent a wonderful Friday evening at this Holiday Inn Express. I chose it for the indoor pool on a cool, breezy early spring day. The pool was great -- super warm water and my grandson splashed and played for a long time. Our king sweet was also just what we needed -- plenty...

Great place for some quiet time from the trail. Staff is friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tub facilities are limited. Breakfast in the morning is sufficient but not over done. Prices are higher on the weekend. Convenient location to food, post office and resupply.

Reserved a king room for the weekend. The room they assigned us had a small amount of plaster on the floor and you could see the tub above that room had been leaking. My wife found the head housekeeper and she quickly switched us out to another room. This hotel needs some serious upgrading. Stains on the ceiling and tub...
