Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hiawassee

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

In town for a funeral and this room added to the stress. The Wi-Fi was non-existent in my room, yet, in my sister's room, Wi-Fi worked fine. Wi-fi is important here as it is unlikely you will have cell phone coverage. No closet, which was fine, however, the clothes rack collapsed after hanging a few things on it. Maintenance apologized and said that it had been installed incorrectly, so our funeral clothes had to be draped across bed and chairs. When we followed up later at front desk, was told that maintenance staff went out for part and had not been seen since. Sheets had stains on them when we first arrived. All of this at approx. $130 a night. This is a small town and there are not many choices for lodging. I should also add that I travel often for work and have stayed at Holiday Inn Express before with very pleasant results. Problem appears to be with this particular facility.

The hotel was very quiet, the room was very clean, and the breakfast was great - bacon, eggs, biscuits, gravy, etc plus cereal, fruit, bagels, waffles, cinnamon rolls, etc. The beds slept good. We were close to the music venue, which was at the fairgrounds, so it was very convenient. Having a microwave, coffee maker, fridge, and mini-sink in the room was so nice.

Just a quick getaway for overnight Hotel was nice, did need some minor cosmetic work for an executive suite. Beds and room very comfortable. Had free cookies in lobby, hot breakfast next morning. The only downside were walls are very thin. We could hear tv in next rooms even though sound wasn't loud. Great restaurant 5-6 miles on main road, (Brothers at Willow Ranch) and economically priced. Staff pleasant.

Located in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views of the mountains.

It was good! A nice stay. Good staff, comfortable, good location.

I must say I was quite impressed by the staff and facilities. The upgrade was an unexpected surprise!

Recently my wife and myself decided to visit .this GA. Town From the local hotel reviews we obtained,we decideded we would stay 17 miles to the north in the town called Hiawassee,we were very impressesed with the new hotel..it was very clean and the breakfast was wonderful...the only draw back was the acute winding roads and elevation more or less scared my wife so much so that she sat in the back seat through the mountains.

Check out was a breeze and the breakfast that came With the room was excellent! The room was very comfortable and the staff were great!

Nice location in downtown Hiawassee. The staff were nice. The motel is an older facility and had a "smell" to it (age I guess). the jacuzzi had a pile of sand in it and did not look very inviting. I would not go back for the amount charged.

The room was clean with ample space in the bathroom. We so liked that! Breakfast was also good. We would stay there again.

The women at the front desk was very nice. The elevator was super slow so I took the stairs to my room on the second floor. The room smelled so clean I was very happy with that. The bathroom was very nice, must have been upgraded recently. The shower was great and the towels were soft. The bed was comfortable. the sleeper sofa looked a little worn and needed replacing. The breakfast was not that great. they had bacon so thin you could read thru it and the eggs were like one big egg by 9am not very appetizing at all. they has a pancake maker that I should have tried but I was scare to. no complaints from me.

Our overall stay at this hotel was great....except for the beds. OMG they were terrible...felt like they forgot to put the mattress on and were were sleeping on the box springs. The room was clean, the hotel was too...staff was pleasant and helpful. But when you spend the majority of your hotel stay just to sleep, then you want a comfortable bed. Overall, the experience wouldn't have been too bad if the bed had been more comfortable.

The staff at the Holiday Express were awesome. Friendly, helpful. We ended up arriving late because of traffic and weather, but they were super and even got us into ajoining rooms for the other parties with us. It is a little hard to find, we missed the entrance both from the main highway and from the street, but guests just need to watch close for the entrance and they will be fine. Nice and quiet, very, very clean, breakfast was better than most -- wide select of options offered.

Very nice, big, and clean rooms. Friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend.

The hotel was very clean and neat. It had a wonderful breakfast. The staff was more than accommodating and extremely pleasant. There was some construction and the fitness center was small. I would definitely stay here again. It was a great deal in a beautiful part of Georgia.

Great places to eat all around the hotel; Breakfast added to great value to price of hotel (best hot breakfast)

staff was great, the room was always spotless, would stay there again, had a wonder time. So much to see & do in the area. Not a big town so was very peaceful.

Used as the base for a family reunion in Western North Carolina. IT was a good choice, even though I thought it a bit "pricey"

We had an awesome trip. We were very impressed with the indoor pool and whirpool. The breakfast was delicious. I will definitely stay here again.

The breakfast was definitely above normal, as it was a full serve breakfast and not continental style.
