We stayed here for a few days while our new house was getting ready. I found it to be very clean. It is very pet friendly and there is a decent spot to walk your dogs behind the hotel. The staff was helpful with directions to different places. The one negative, the breakfast left something to be desired. I've had... More

The hotel was clean and for the price nice. There was no stains on carpet. Our linens were clean. Conveniently located in town. Deadbolt lock on the door, very safe. Would definitely stay again if the need arises.

I stayed here quite a few years ago and it was a pretty quaint hotel then. Not sure what happened between now and then. In the bathroom, the paint is literally peeling off the walls. Now don't get me wrong I love vintage, but everything here is extremely out dated and not in a great clean way.... More like a... More

Very disgusting hotel. Room looked like it has never been cleaned. Looks like all the one lady does is make the beds and out the little travel sized stuff in the room. Creepy front desk guy. Hotel room has weird odor. Roaches in the bathroom area. Shower was disgusting. No microwave. Breakfast was pretty much either cereal, a frozen microwaveable... More

Room stunk of cigarette smell, Badly. I went to Walmart and got frebreeze to make the room tolerable... TV broken, and awoke to cock roaches on the night stand... Lots of young people walking around all night, outside talking loud, with cars in and out often waking us up. Will never stay here again....

Yes the bathroom was a bit small but over all the room was clean and had no odor. The area was safe and the king size bed was comfortable. If you want a no frills place to hang your hat and at a very reasonable price while visiting then this hotel will meet your needs.

Stayed here oct 29, 2015....first floor, first room on left side of front of blding...we had no complaints....it was clean, had no odor!! We didnt see any bugs, roaches etc....yes, the bathroom was small but the king room was a large decent room with a large chair/couch to sit on. It was also $10.00 cheaper than the Ellijay Inn....

If you are looking for more than a bed and a door that locks go somewhere else. Bathroom was the sizes of a small closet. AC ran when it wanted to work. Exterior and interior cleanliness was definitely subpar. Overpriced.

Nastiest room I've ever stayed in. Whole room was infested in roaches. No more rooms available in town during Octoberfest Apple Festival so we had to stay. Management acted like they didn't care. They said "Oh thanks for telling us. We will take care of it" Too late now. We had to live in it. My kids will never forget... More
