We drove up from Florida to get a jump start on our vacation in Blue Ridge GA. We arrived at 12:30 AM and the owner was on duty. Check in was a breeze. The room was clean, a bit dated, TV worked with many stations and the rate was good. We skipped breakfast and went to McDonalds.

We chose to stay in Ellijay because of the convenient location to Amicalola State Park. It is slightly better than similar class of motels we stayed at in Chattagoona and Birmingham. Breakfast, service, and room was fine for the one night stay.

We've stayed here numerous times. It's a comfortable motel. It's older, but renovations have commenced. Animal friendly rooms & walking areas are there. Bobby, the front desk attendant is awesome, I'd suggest you wait till after 2pm & call him to book or book online. The other woman that answers in the morning is very rude and hard to understand....

OK for one night but looks better on outside than inside. Inside desperately needs to be updated and renovated. No microwave. When a/c was on room smelled disgustingly of URINE. Big box TV, no flat screen. Did have cable. Lots of noise from upstairs. Will look for another option next trip.

The tv is an old box type with a horrible picture. The beds are TINY, somewhere between a twin & double. I am 5'5" & short legged. My feet were flat on the floor & it wasn't even the height of my knees. My boyfriend almost fell in the floor when he laid down. We had to sleep in separate... More

we stayed for one night, and woke up the next morning and the coffee pot didn't work, the hair dryer didn't work and we found a bug on the wall. The shower had mildew in it, so I wouldn't recommend this motel. The person at the front desk was the nicest thing about the stay

Went to other hotels and they were quite lackluster to be honest. The Stratford Motor Inn was exactly what we needed, it was quiet and relaxing. The staff are very kind and eager to help with questions. The hotel seems to be in the process of renovating as well, so it will only get better. Plan on coming back again!... More

The room was clean and the man at the front desk was extremely friendly and personable. Breakfast was simple and the room was a little plain, but it worked just fine for an overnight stay. My family just stayed here for the night while we were passing through on a road trip, and we didn't have any problems. It's a... More

The room is meh, no frills, horrible bed spreads, creaky beds. If you need a room for 1 night and check out in morning it'll do, but I would not recommend this for extended stay. The outside is deceiving for the rooms are dated in the 80s.

We were passing through Ellijah for a weekend trip. Sweet town but was disappointed at the Stratford Motor Inn.. Exterior of motel was quite deceiving of the room that we stayed in. Room needs to be updated is an understatement...... - you could count the springs on the mattress - you could hear the people in the next room talking... More
