Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by travel dave Misleading and inaccurate IHG website reservation!
I booked this hotel on the Corporate IHG website for two nights during the July 4th weekend, weeks in advance and specifically selected PETS ALLOWED on the website. This property was the first option and I booked it. Upon arrival, the front door stated "no pets allowed" and I felt like we had to sneak our pet inside for our holiday stay. After one night, the property manager stopped me in the parking lot and made it clear that the property didn't allow pets. I informed her that the Corporate IHG website clearly stated the opposite and showed her my reservation and confirmed it again on the website. She again repeated no pets were allowed. Being a holiday weekend, all the other hotels were booked solid and we were unable to find an alternate place to stay. We felt completely unwelcome and decided to cut our holiday weekend short by 50% to return home. The Corporate IHG website that books reservations contradicts individual property rules. Needless to say, the long, holiday mountain getaway was soured by IHG's inaccurate website. I will be requesting a refund of the one night I stayed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Most accommodating!
Stayed at this hotel during renovations. The room was lacking a refrigerator. It was a must for medicines. There were no rooms left with refrigerator. However,, the clerk knocked on my door in 5 minutes with a small "frig." Very kind, respectful, and eager to assist us in any way necessary. Would stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CK in TN A Nice Surprise!
This Holiday Inn Express was very nice. The room was clean, and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. We also had a gorgeous, unexpected view of the mountains outside our window! The staff was nice too. It was a little pricey but a very quaint spot. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this hotel for the University of North Georgia orientation. Most of the parents stayed here. Nice on the outside, clean lobby and rooms.
However the hotel rooms could really used modern furniture and soft sheets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Revenue Instructor Traveling Revenue Instructor Strikes GOLD in Dahlonega...AGAIN!
Once again, I was required to travel up to Dahlonega and teach another class at the College there. My stay at Holiday Inn Express was again sensational! This is a great facility to stay. Ms. Diane and the staff do an excellent job. I place this facility at the top of my favorites list! Often I see folks get upset when they can't always get extended checkout times. What they don't realize is this facility houses many guests who are attending mountain weddings and they consume the hotel facility there. I always look forward to staying there as I know I will get a week of rest each night along which will produce good, productive work each day. This place just ROCKS!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business at the college Clean but very old and outdated.
My daughter had to take a test at the college so we stayed at this hotel on June 8th/9th 2014. If you’re looking for just a place to sleep I guess it’s alright. But for the price you can get much better amenities.
The hotel is VERY old. Its clean…… but old! I had read the reviews and thought that the “renovations” would be done or at least mostly done…… WRONG! When I called to make the reservations I asked that we get a room with a refrigerator, I was told that not many rooms had them but we would get one of them. When we got there the lady at the front (the older lady) told me they only had a couple of rooms with refrigerators and that none were available…… there were 2 cars in the parking lot! She was not overly rude but she was not helpful or polite at all! I asked if I could do a late check out since we didn’t have to be at the college till noon. She told me absolutely not checkout was at 11am.
The pool is very clean, all the grounds were clean. The breakfast was alright.
There is no workout room or meeting room. I didn’t see signs of “remodeling” or “upgrading”.
If you want a place just to sleep its fine, but if you’re spending more than a night you can get better for the same price and there are several other hotels in the immediate area to stay at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Autozone Great Front deck service
The front desk manager (a older lady) upgraded us because some Military personnel need our 2 queen room. We agreed to the room change to help out our service members. We did not expect an upgrade to the best room in the hotel! It was not needed but after a long day of travel it was an excellent surprise. It was the highlight of our vacation !

The young man that answered the phone when I made my reservation was very rude. I even had to call back due to a problem and he was worse than the first time. If we had not already been driving for 9 hours with three kids in the car, I would have found another hotel to go to.

It would have been nice to have a meeting room so that fans of the concert could have gotten together before and after to concert to visit one another and talk with the band.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jungle Hays Outdated, No HBO, but it works
Hotel was Ok. Staff was every helpful, room was clean, but outdated. AC was off in my room when I arrived so it was hot but cooled off quickly. No HBO at this hotel, that was very disappointing. For the money there are better place to say in Dahlonega. Breakfast your standerd Holiday Inn food.

I really enjoy staying there when traveling to Dahlonega. I often teach a tax class there and always stay at this facility. Ms. Dianne and the staff do a superb job as they always strive to make everyone's stay a pleasurable one. I would not consider staying anywhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DerbyGirl Great Staff - Wonderful Manager - Diane
We have stayed at this location in Dahlonega on several occassions and have never been unhappy with our visit. The staff and wonderful manager, Diane, are always so accommodating and helpful. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is always good, and we have never had any problems with noise. If I could change anything about this hotel I wish they had a meeting room so we could have more events there since the area is so great. I would also like to see them add a frige and microwave to all the rooms. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing and we will always stay here when we are in the area. Thank you for a great place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Always able to provide for my needs. Diane is a committed service provider
I stay here several days each month. Most times I have to book a room at the last minute. Diane always answers the phone Nd has a room available for me. I had a group stay and she was able to accomodate for each one and everything went flawless The only thing which I understand they are working on it is outlets in the rooms for my needed electronics.
The renovations are spectacular. The automatic doors and improvements to the common areas make the hotel a great place to come to.
This would be the only place I will stay. Even if i am working in blue ridge, I will drive to dahlonega to stay here.

I stay here 4 times a year for business. The staff is very friendly, and has gone out of their way more than once to get me out of a jam as far as reservations. It is close to town, and there is a convenience store/gas station right next door. Whenever I am in town I plan on staying here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dawgs777 Wedding party issues
We recently stayed here with a wedding party...in fact, there were 5 different wedding parties staying at the hotel. The pool was closed and it was rather cool outside so we could not sit outside. As there were numerous out of state family members visiting, we gathered in the lobby to sit, chat and enjoy each other's company. However, this was not possible as we were asked to leave the lobby because it was past 11pm and we were disturbing guests that had rooms above the lobby. Once we moved to our rooms, we received guest complaints in several rooms due to the "noise level". This hotel does not enjoy groups in the lobby and made that clear to us. Other than this issue the rooms were clean, housekeeping did an excellent job and the location is perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adixon Thank you for a great stay and for protecting our kids!
Every year we stay at the Holiday Inn and Express in Dahlonega on our 6th grade trip. This is a neat and clean hotel with a friendly, presentable and knowledgable staff. I would like to thank them for blocking the adult websites. It was a relief to know that my students had access to the internet and their email without having to worry about what they might accidentally run into! With 25 students to keep track of, monitoring internet access while they are in hotel rooms is a frustration. When Diane told me that they would not find adult content, I felt so much safer! Thank you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCFG Family oriented hotel. Always feels like a home away from home.
I have stayed here numerous times over the last two years. The atmosphere is always so pleasant. The staff is so helpful and friendly no matter what time of day you may need assistance. I love the family atmosphere here, you never have to worry about what your children may or may not encounter while at this location. The rooms are always clean and you feel very safe while staying here. I will definetely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Dahlonega. You will not be disappointed. Also they are in the process of remodeling the hotel at this time and the new updates are really looking great. I have stayed here for pleasure and business and I would recommend this hotel for either of your travel needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bjackson5195 Horrible Experience
This was one of the worst hotel experiences I have ever encountered. Not only was my account charged 3 times, but the refunding process was awful. Due to the hotels mistake in charging my account 3 times I have had to file a dispute with my bank and have had a number of charges from my bank for being over-drafted. The staff was unhelpful and rude and the worst thing about it is that I have spoken with the manager every time and she was very rude and inconsiderate. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone due to the inconvenience I have had to go through.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by frog61267 Not the best night's sleep
The place is newer and very clean. Staff was okay. Good location. Main complaint was that the wall heater would vary from 60 to 80 degrees, and the only way to adjust it was to manually turn it off and on all night. Didn't discover it until late in the evening, when I needed some warmth. I'm sure they would have moved me, but that shouldn't have to be my problem. For the money, it wasn't a deal.

The staff was very friendly. The decor needs improvement. I had a suite and my son slept in the pull out sofa and he said it was very uncomfortable. Please improve the sofa beds. The room was clean and neat. The breakfast was good to be free. My husband and I will be staying at this hotel again in the near future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gailmm Dependable choice in area with limited hotels avaliable
The hotel is typlcal of those in the HIE chain: clean, good breakfast, well appointed room. I do think the increase in weekend rates was a bit steep considering this is the off-season: before the holiday week and foliage gone.
One concern I have is one with most hotels: difficulty in darkening the room and noisy heat/air.
