“Great place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

My girlfriend and I were on a bit of a tight budget and took a room at 51 dollars a night expecting something subpar, but we were very impressed! Our room was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a comfortable two day trip. The owner, Al, was extremely friendly and helpful whenever we talked to him. Best of all, the hotel is only a few minutes out of Dahlonega and our room had a wonderful view of the city. If you're looking for an affordable yet nice place to stay, this is a great hotel.

Gross, is basically the best word for this place. It is not well maintained at all. They over charged by ALOT to stay in this place. It is at best a quick stop for someone needing to stay & play maybe $30. NOT WORTH THE PRICE OF $70/Night!

Food at breakfast was not great.

Seriously go around the corner the Holiday INN. This place is just not worth the hassle.

Room Tip: Go to the Holiday Inn!

Firstly the nightly price was advertised as being $44 per night. When my wife proceeded to make the reservations she discovered the "fine print"" $44 only if you book 3 consecutive nights. We needed a hotel and went ahead and booked a room at the actual price of $65 plus per night. Once we arrived it was obvious that this would not be a $65 hotel room. The exterior was in disrepair. What had been repaired had been done so in a shoddy, unprofessional fashion. A look into the room revealed a very similar environment. It was fine. For $44 I would've kept my mouth shut. For $65 I expect a little more. It was shoddily renovated. They had good intentions but kind of "phoned it in." It was sort of clean, though the vacuum had never seen the underside of the steel frame mattress supports. The one upside? Al. Al seemed to be the manager. He was a delight. He was positive, optimistic, and went above and beyond to make up for the obvious failings of this overpriced lodging. He made it okay. No, I'll not make this same mistake twice, though I might drop by to say hi to Al.

Room Tip: Eh, I'd try up the street.

Where do I begin? The woman at the front desk had me fill out an old fashioned hotel registration form then proceded to write my credit card info on the back. never swiped the card and never gave me a receipt. They had a computer at the desk but I never saw any evidence that they knew what to do with it or if it even worked.

I am a pest control professional so I do a routine bedbug check at each place I stay. No bedbugs found but the room had other inhabitants including the millipede in my photo. As others have noted the mattresses were old and not very clean, in fact there was little about the room that was clean, and there was dog hair everywhere.

I took advantage of the WIFI when I first arrived. To my surprise it was "off" when I returned to the room at about 9 pm, and I was unable to log onto the internet the rest of the night even though I had used it earlier.

The location is very convenient, but I will never stay at this dump again. Super 8 should pull their name from this hotel.

The room was not a total dump nor was it top notch. It served its purpose and that was all. I didn't really expect much more other than the very first time I stayed in a Super 8 it was immaculate. This particular one was much older and a bit worn and used.
For a short term stay I would consider it again, but not for more than one night.

Closeness to the mountains made up for it.
