Reviewed 16 November 2012

Gloria, Wendy and Brenda will make you feel at home with "southern hospitlity". Extreamely clean room with a view. The front desk was helpful in suggesting good restaurants. They provided a map to the antique district and highlighted the best route.

Room Tip: this IS a no pet and no smoking no kiddn'... @nd floor on the far end is quiet and best view.

Just returned from a weekend in north Georgia where we stayed at this hotel. The entrance is not well marked and you enter where you see the road sign for 'Coosawattee' and make an immediate left up the hill next to the gas station. This hotel is located on top of a mountain/foot hill. Once you make the drive up the steep incline you will see this lovely lodging. Desk staff were most helpful, the property is clean, nicely appointed with a small dining area. Pluses for this hotel would be the free breakfast. Most free breakfasts are cereals, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, whoever this breakfast included a southern favorite, biscuits and gravy, bread, waffles for warming milk and beverages; clean room, pool and spa and view.

The pool area is quite nice accessible by the lobby area. It is not a large hotel by typical standards but large enough and not overcrowded. Our room was 205 on the second floor. Be aware this hotel does not have an elevator but does have stairway entrances (two landings to the second floor) on both ends of the hotel as well as the lobby. There was not a bell staff available so if you have physical concerns, I suggest booking a room on the first floor.
Our room had a fridge and coffee maker, blow dryer. You cannot open the window so it was a tad bit musty but freshner was used to spice up the room which was clean, bathroom scrubbed nicely with necessary soaps. I prefer a soft bed and this one was very firm. The extra pillows made for a restful sleep.

The front desk provided hand drawn maps, highlighting the directions to show you where to go for dining or sightseeing which was most helpful. There is a shopping plaza less than five minutes away with a Walmart, gas, Ruby Tuesdays, local barbecue spot and more. The other direction, again, in just a manner of minutes, takes you to a local grocery which also has a pizza spot in the same plaza, antiques mall, Sushi bar, place to get a mani/pedi. Locally there are also several mom and pop type restaurants and flea market type spots.

I would recommend this lodging for travelers to this area. We plan on returning and staying here.

Room Tip: Mobility issues, request a first floor there is no elevator. Second floor rooms have a nicer view...

This hotel is very reasonable and well maintained. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The manager suggested 2 restaurants which lived up to our expectations. The breakfast was all we needed to start our day. Recommend this property highly!

This hotel is atop a mountain and offers wonderful views of Ellijay. We stayed at the end of apple picking season and the hotel was very reasonable. One employee was making coffee in the lobby and offered several local restaurant suggestions and even gave us a map to get there. When we were finishing paperwork to check in, we found out she and her husband were the owners. They were walking out to leave for the evening and saw us unloading our car. They personally helped load our luggage cart and carried our bags to our room, even hanging our garment bags in the closet. There is only stair access to the second floor, but with service like that and the price, I wouldn't complain a bit. I think the hotel must have been recently renovated because everything was nice and new. Breakfast was great, also.

Room Tip: There is no elevator to the second floor, so if you have a lot of luggage to haul, ask for a first f...

What a wonderful hotel!! The staff were very friendly, the hotel was clean and very well maintained. If I were forced to find something negative it would be the very small breakfast area. The breakfast was good and everything was fresh. It is not a full breakfast, but continental. If you are coming to Ellijay, I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We stayed on bottom floor, very quiet, easy access.

The owners were extremely courteous and even helped carry out bags inside! Clean inside and out and has an amazing view of the mountains. And the beds and pillows are comfortable. The whole hotel smells lovely and their are restaurants and shopping places all within a short driving distance of the hotel. I definitely recommend it if you are visiting Elijay.

This was a really nice place to stay. Our room faced the East, could see the sun coming for a while, lighting up the peaks and darkening the valleys. The Inn seems to be on top of the world, not right on the road, and not easy to locate. Very little signage here, watch the mountain tops. The Inn is clean and very comfortable with a friendly, helpful staff. There is no elevator, be prepared to use steps.

Room Tip: Ask for a "mountain view" to watch the day start.
