My family and I stayed at this hotel in April 2017. We were greeted by a sign on the front door that said "renovating...please excuse our mess". They weren't kidding. But the whole place was run down and nasty. Our room was very dusty, beds were very uncomfortable...could feel the springs, and mattresses were saggy. The workout facility was in...

Booked for two nights. Front desk people were rude, when I walked up to the desk before I could say anything I was told, 'if you don't have a reservation you need to leave." No housekeeping at all, yet they want a tip.

My six year old grandson and I spent a wonderful Friday evening at this Holiday Inn Express. I chose it for the indoor pool on a cool, breezy early spring day. The pool was great -- super warm water and my grandson splashed and played for a long time. Our king sweet was also just what we needed -- plenty...

Great place for some quiet time from the trail. Staff is friendly and helpful. Pool and hot tub facilities are limited. Breakfast in the morning is sufficient but not over done. Prices are higher on the weekend. Convenient location to food, post office and resupply.

Reserved a king room for the weekend. The room they assigned us had a small amount of plaster on the floor and you could see the tub above that room had been leaking. My wife found the head housekeeper and she quickly switched us out to another room. This hotel needs some serious upgrading. Stains on the ceiling and tub...

Stayed here for a college visit for my son at Young Harris. The people from the front desk clerks to the breakfast folks were very nice. The hotel seemed to be in the process of some updates which is good. Room was clean except when air was cut on at a higher rate a bunch of black stuff shot out...

Hi ddunn04! Thank you for your stay and for posting a review on TripAdvisor. It is nice to hear that you found our breakfast option to your liking.

Stayed overnight after attending a show at Anderson Music Hall. Which was just a 5-10 minute drive from the Holiday Inn. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I didn't see examples of poor housekeeping that were referenced in other reviews. I absolutely loved the shower it had lots of water pressure and plenty of hot water. The...
