We had a very nice stay. The hotel was nice and clean. Our only complaint was the service we received at breskfast. The attendant never asked us if we would like coffee or tea and had to be asked to refill the OJ.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarbNWilbur Holiday Visit
We used this facility for a stop over as it was exactly in the middle of 2 family members we wanted to visit during the holidays. The staff were always not only nice but kind and seemed to be able to anticipate our needs. We added on a day because my husband fell ill with a stomach bug. When I asked if I could take him some toast back to the room, the lady in the breakfast room not only brought me a to-go container for the toast but several packets of crackers as well.That was a big help. Thanks Holiday Inn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Onthefly Lake Lanier over the holidays
I have stayed at this facility several times. Usually, I receive ING Rewards recognition, but not this time. Due to holidays, hotel was deserted. Hotel has not updated their tv channel sheet for several months; had to call front desk for HBO channels; don't know if hotel had other premium tv channel. Room was not made up after first night. Exercise room has dated equipment. Very quiet; I was not on room facing road. Breakfast staff always acknowledges me; had nice buffet -- fresh and hot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olechap1 Great service
We had a slight problem with the TV and Chad came quickly and solved it. He was very helpful. The next morning I returned from a doctor's appointment and arrived after the restaurant closed for breakfast. Since they had not taken down the buffet, they graciously told me to help myself and made sure I had all that I needed. Since I had been fasting since the previous day, I greatly appreciated their kindness.

The night manager was kind enough to refund our room fee when we had to leave at 11:45pm. Unfortunately, the day manager thought it was ok to surround our room with a college swim team. They were young and didn't need to sleep. They also thought they were in student housing where they could party in the hallway all night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by phil1000 Very welcoming hotel
My wife and I Used this hotel as it was close to Road Atlanta race track where I was attending the Petit le mans.
Stopped here for two nights and I was very impressed. the staff were great (Robert, the bar tender made us feel very welcome). we ate in the bar area and felt the food was of a good standard at both breakfast and for our evening meal and good value - as were the drinks. The room was clean and comfortable with a good size TV.
In general, the hotel was very welcoming and we felt we could relax here.
seemed to be a good atmosphere both nights. Loads of free parking which was also a bonus and the hotel was easy to find which was great news for us as we were on holiday in the USA from the UK and didn't want to get lost looking for a hotel !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LadyGee Would rate higher
Before I begin this review, I must take some of the blame for 2 of the cons against this location. I wanted to find a hotel very near Lake Lanier to spend my birthday. I chose this location because the price was reasonable and they offered free breakfast. I was a bit disappointed after checking in to find out that the hotel was in the middle of and business district and Lake Lanier was approx 30 miles from this location. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable although I found hair on the shower walls. As I visited on a Thursday the hotel was extremely quiet which I greatly appreciated, however, as the hotel sits in the middle of a business district, I had to listen to trucks, cars, and motorcycles all night. The buffet was decent although there wasn't much of a choice. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for quick overnight stay and are not a light sleeper.

I came in for business and stayed 2 nights with my friend. Dugan checked us in and was very helpful when we arrived. Our room was comfortable and clean.
Breakfast every morning had good variety!
We ate at the bar one night and the bartender, Robert, was super nice and helpful. The food was really good, too!
Good experience, thanks!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TVS1966 Mixed Feelings
While the check-in experience was very good - the two men were very efficient and friendly - the experience with the bar tender (a woman) was surprisingly bad. The lady was quite unattentive, ate chips and did not look at you while talking to you.
The website states there is a shuttle service to the airport. When I asked someone to please arrange a pick-up for me, I was handed a phone number and was told I had to call myself. Bottom line, the staff person was not willing to go the extra step.
Besides all that, the hotel satisfied the purpose but I am not sure if I would recommend it since there are alternatives in the area.

While on the way from Mobile to Cleveland, GA, I pulled this hotel up on my IHG app on my phone. Front desk staff was very nice and social. Nice room and great breakfast the next morning!. Download the Priority Club App for your phone! It really comes in handy!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuzieCNJ Very comfortable and quiet
Hotel staff were very pleasant. Room was clean and very comfortable. Bathroom updated and clean. Nice outside pool (Closes Labor Day) and patio though they don't have any pics on web page. Exercise equipment not that great but that's a minor problem. Staffing seemed short. One night the bar/lounge was closed and I so wanted a nightcap on the patio. WiFi worked fine-TV programming not good so it's a good thing I had WiFi. I would definitely stay there again if I'm back in Gainsville.

We spent the night after a day at the museum in Atlanta before visiting the mountains of North Georgia. The hotel was conveniently located within a short walking distance to the town square where there were several restaurants, shops, etc. The town was interesting and we enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast buffet was excellent and was a great way to start our day. I would very much recommend this property, and we would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DE770 Clean room and bath
Overall the room was very good. Had a one night stay so was quiet and restful. The continental breakfast the next morning appeared to be only for quest with Dick's Sporting Goods since signs were all around the area welcoming them. Could not find a staff member to ask where other quest were to eat and since the food was also covered we left and grabbed breakfast at fast food. Was very disappointed because felt the price included the breakfast.

Whether you are there on a business trip or passing thru on your motorcycle to take in a mountain ride, this place treats you the same. Great food in the restaurant, cozy bar and lounge, and the grounds are awesome out back if you just want to sit and have a cold one by yourself.
Would highly recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paula40 Dirty Room And Poor Guest Service
We usually stay at Holiday Inn's because you can usually guarantee comfort and great guest services, not at this place. On arrival we were greeted with a funny smell in our room, there were coffee marks on the bedside tables, but our main complaint was with the bedding, my son found personal hair and stains on his bedding, we called housekeeping but got put through to the front desk because housekeeping was not there, we asked for clean bedding. We waited a short time, then the girl from the front desk handed my son crumpled up bedding and left!! We had to make our own bed!! We had to be up early the next morning so I was going to complain when we checked out, we were greeted by a young man with scruffy hair yawning, I knew there was no point complaining to him! The free hot breakfast I guess was OK, I didn't eat it, but they ran out of coffee, I waited a long time to even find someone to tell, there was one girl working, people were having to clear their own table to even sit down, incredibly disappointed in this hotel.

Hotel is nice even though you can tell it is older.. It was clean and fairly well maintained. Carpet looking a little worn. Really the only bad thing I can say is that the bed was hard as a rock! I have to come back in a few weeks and I'm hoping for a softer bed.

This hotel gets a lot of clients coming to town for longer periods for training. The property is dated, but workers and management work hard. I thought the room and bathroom are clean. At breakfast I talked with someone that lives in town, but comes for breakfast because he likes the food. I think the breakfast room supervisor works hard to provide the best spread possible. Coffee is available as soon as the supervisor arrives, prior to breakfast.
Update the list of tv channels to include new HBO channels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michaelh7 Changed Breakfast Options - Bad Decision
I have been coming to this hotel for many years. There are several options in the Gainesville area. My Company has deals with Hampton and HI. However, because I am a platinum member and mainly because i liked the breakfast with a cook and wide range of breakfast items, I stayed at the Lanier Center.
However, the last visit and my next will be at the Hampton. The breakfast was the draw for me (and others).
Thanks for the memories, let me know if you change back.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Gainesville in June, 2013 and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff are wonderful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel seems newly refurbished with a very nice reception area and common space. Overall this was a great place to stay near Lake Lanier.

I've stayed at this hotel several times. Although the facility is dated, the staff is friendly, rooms are clean, and guests are safe. I've noticed a slow decline in breakfast -- use to be light buffet, now order off menu. Workout area is dated. On a previous stay I commented on an unsecured door -- that was fixed. There are several HBO channels, but these are difficult to find -- call the main desk to get new channel numbers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nunyabizness Average overall
Although our stay here turned out okay in the end, we were shocked and appalled when we went (after a long, tiring day of travel) to check into our room only to discover that it appeared as though a fraternity party had just taken place. Totally disgusting. Heavy smell of smoke, TV on, drink cans sitting around, bed clearly used and unmade, bathroom a mess with dirty towels strewn about...not a good first impression. They did put us in another room right away and the staff were very nice. Free breakfast was of average quality and acceptable. Room (the second one) adequately clean. Noise level was high--street noise bad and a sound other loud guests on our floor partying after midnight. Dissappointed that staff did not offer at least a discount considering the condition of the first room we were given a key to.
