Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wendy456 Decent Stay
Overall clean, typical Holiday Inn Express hotel - somewhat older, but with modern elements. The pool was clean, the staff was overall friendly...the only thing...on Sundays, breakfast ends at 9am. We attended a late wedding the night before and came down at 9:30am to find out that they stopped serving breakfast. So, make sure you are there on time if you plan on eating breakfast here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DucLover Service and Value; A Very Pleasant Stay
As the last overnight stop on a five-day pleasure trip, this hotel was a gem! Excellent accomodations, a very pleasant check-in, and great value for a senior citizen. Wish more of my many hotel experiences over the years were half as good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another Road Warrior Enjoyable and relaxing visit.
I have always enjoyed traveling to this part of the state. I recently attended a conference in the area. Someone attending the conference suggested this Holiday Inn Express. I was greeted by a very friendly young lady at the desk. She gave me a room in the area that t had requested. She later helped me with selecting a place for dinner, and it was very good.
The grounds and motel and my room were exceptionally clean and attractive. The breakfast buffet was the same high selections that I expected. The skyline view from m room was beautiful. I look forward to staying here again.

Stayed here because of other reviews. Very nice and quiet. Slept quite well. Expectations were met. Nicest place we have stayed in the area by far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bonibelle20000 great sleeping wonderful service
great stay. We live in Hiawassee. Just wanted to get out of the house for the night. Tara our housekeeper was wonderful. She brought us extra towels and brought us some cookies and milk to our room. Said if we needed anything to just let her know. All the staff was very friendly and quick to attend to our needs. The only thing was the Jacuzzi not working. They said they couldn't get the chemicals to balance right. But besides the Jacuzzi everything was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smile01 Great service and Hospitality
Wonderful hospitality from the moment we checked in. This is one of my favorite Holiday Inn Express to visit. The complimentary breakfast exceeds expectations. Staff are very personable and facilities very clean. The only suggestion I have is to possibly update the beds. The beds we had were not comfortable as the mattresses were outdated. Other than that, our visit was great!

The handicap room was very spacious for my husband in his skooter along with the bathroom. However, the heater didn't work correctly. It would get hot and when we turned it down it would make a loud rattling noise so we couldn't sleep with that noise. We actually had to sleep with the heater off and it got very cold! The breakfast was very good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brianstearns Hard beds and cold hot tub.
Upon checking in I asked the front desk staff if the pool and hot tub were working. He told me yes it was. But after hiking the mountains we decided to go try to enjoy the hot tub. It was more like a cold tub. The swimming pool was actually warmer than the hot tub. He took a reading of the temperature and it said it was 80 degrees. He then said that they have to keep it cooler because of the older people that stay there. I later found out from another guest that he told them that it has been acting up quite frequently. So...which one is it. Either way when I asked at check in if it was working he should have been upfront and said "no". We could have found another hotel that had a working hot tub. Very disappointed. Would not recommend to anyone who wants to use the hot tub.

This was our first visit to Hiawasse and it was good. We traveled to Helen each day for the Oktoberfest. The rooms were ready upon our arrival and the entire staff was pleasant and helpful. We would recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

Staff, room, and food excellent. Wonderful to have 4 cup coffee maker in room. Wish all the H Inns had this.
The only thing that could make this HI tops is new mattresses.
Linens and pillows were also excellent.

Really nice, such a large, comfortable room!, we were very impressed. On a hot day we were greeted with a tub of cold bottled water at the door, such a nice touch! Really nice breakfast, too, loved the cinnamon rolls and the pancakes were fun!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by norwaymi Nice room and Breakfast
We had to settle for a smoking room. I would probably not do this again as the smell was overwhelming upon entry (we did get used to it). The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Maid service did not replenish wash cloths, towels, coffee. Beds were made up. Room was clean upon entry. Breakfast was good and attendant did a nice job of keeping things stocked considering there were no vacancies. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. A little overpriced for an HIE but there's no real competition or alternative in town.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by whittler Motel needs upgrades.
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express many times and have always thought it was comfortable, clean, and convenient. However, this time we noticed it needed some maintenance. The room had a peculiar odor, especially the sofa. The bed dust ruffle was very wrinkled.
Although there were many choices on the breakfast menu, it was not tasty. The eggs were watery and the bacon very greasy.
We always stay here when we go to the GA Mountain Fair; but we will look for another motel next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack48 Good hotel, not so good staff
This is the first Holiday Inn that we have ever stayed at that didn't recognize us as being Priority Club Members. It is a nice gesture to get a room upgrade and other perks. It was not even mentioned that we were Platinum Priority Club Members.

We really enjoyed our stay in Hiawassee. The hotel was really not that far from Helen or Vogel State Park (both places we wanted to go). The price was great and I was really impressed with the variety they had for breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ingles nice property, HORRIBLE beds
I am a platinum member, and I travel almost every week. I don't normally write reviews, but I thought this was worth explaining. The hotel itself is nice, they have remodeled and updated. However they did not update their beds, and in my 12 years of traveling for business purposes, I think that this was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. I thought maybe it was just my room, but I talked to several of my colleagues and they said the same thing. Those beds had to have been there as long as the hotel, and they really need to be replaced.
