“The best exotic marigold hotel...kind of”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

An old motor lodge up graded with fridge, microwave, and bright yellow paint. The rooms are pretty small, and the king bed was harder than I like. There was a bit of a musty odor as well. However, very quiet even though it is on a main road...cinder block walls will do that. Also a window pane was cracked and repaired with tape. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Stayed October 2013, travelled solo

If you are looking for a nice, clean, very reasonably priced motel to stay in, then look no more.
The staff are friendly, the location is perfect, and the room was CLEAN. This is an older motel that still uses the old fashion key locks. It could be updated, but it would take away from the atmosphere we were looking for. You are within short walking distance to the great shops in town and a few restaurants. We enjoyed an afternoon picking apples at an orchard about 20 minutes away up in the mountains. We will be back, and we won't rent an expensive place when this place brings back good memories of our first visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the last room two rooms by the end of the drive. There is enough space to sit outside o...

This place was perfect and right within our budget. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. It has that old time motor lodge feel, but is eqipped with a clean microwave and fridge. We were within walking distance of downtown and resturants. We will be back next year during apple season!

Yes, this place is old, but I like vintage! They even have the retro plastic diamond shaped key tag used by all of the old motor lodges.
The room is pretty small, but seems to be clean and the motel is just around the corner from the town square with restaurants and shopping.
For under fifty dollars, I think it is great and nostalgic. If you are looking for something new, you will have to pay more elsewhere-- this is not your place.

This Inn has been there for many many of years and has noticeable repairs in bathroom and age shows on the furniture. I arrived @1100 am before check in time rec'd key, room was not ready due to check in time was 100 pm which was okay. I had plenty of things to do. my room was clean and had a fridge with freezer and microwave both work they were new.If your looking to stay in your room with amenities go and pay more else where,the pictures they show are true. The rooms are not large but, I didn't stay there to sit in my room all day. The sheets where clean and soft and the bed slept well, since all other guests (FULL HOUSE) arrived after I went to sleep I had a quite restful night. I had a light bulb burn out took it to the friendly staff and replaced promptly with regrets and smiles.The Inn is very budget friendly for my needs, as place to sleep and shower and do business in the area. I will stay there again when I past through Ellijay. A lot of restaurants and things to do with in a few miles just do your homework where to go.

My husband and I could have easily afforded a much nicer place, but we were tired, it was late, we were starved, tired of being in the car for a long ride, etc. When you walk in...well, when you open the door (because you can't walk in), you literally fall into the bed. Then, you have to crawl over the bed to get to the restroom. The restroom is so tiny that you have no other option than to leave the door open and put 1 leg out while using the toilet. (I am 5'8 and 140 female, so no, this isn't due to weight.) When you sit/lay on the bed, it honestly bounces you right back up because of it being SO old and you can feel the springs every second you're on it. The management is very lousy and uncaring. The pillows...you might as well not have one. It is so bad that your head is on the bed anyways, feeling like the pillowcase itself is all that is between you. The place is NASTY and run-down. Bathroom and bed aren't clean. The few appliances you get do not work. I will never stay here again.
