Staff very nice. Ice machine out of order on 2nd floor. Our room had repairs done at some point and time but areas that had been fixed had not been finished. It was clean. Bed very uncomfortable. Breakfast very average.

"Not a good experience at this hotel."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When we got in our room, there was a food bag on the table and trash where someone had eaten and the trash not picked up. We couldn't tell if the sheets had been changed and the towels did not look refreshed. However, the front desk clerk and housekeeping gentleman were very kind to help us and we changed sheets, wiped down the room and they brought us fresh towels. It was about 8:00 at night and after driving all day, we just wanted to come relax. The chair in the room had stains on it, the couch was really sagging and uncomfortable to sit on, the carpet smelled. It needed a good cleaning and furniture update. We will not be staying at this hotel again. The best thing about the hotel was the kindness of the three staff members we dealt with.

My room was ready when I arrived. But it was obvious that it had not been vacuumed. Toenail clippings by the trash can on the floor. A long dark hair was in the sheets when I pulled back the covers The front desk were very nice. Breakfast was good. Plentiful and hot.

"Is this even a Holiday Inn??."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Pros: The staff is friendly Cons: It's a dump, overpriced and unorganized If you are the least bit concerned about Covid 19 this is not the hotel for you. Contrary to what IHG / InterContinental Hotels Group says on their website about common spaces like the entrance door, elevators, lobby being cleaned multiple times a day. these spaces in this hotel don't appear to have been cleaned in days or longer. Upon arriving at the hotel I was unsure if I was at the right place since there was no sign that I could see saying this was a Holiday Inn. There was a sign a block or two down the hill, but nothing on the building. I had to get out of the car and walk up to see if it said Holiday Inn on the entrance doors. Once checked in, the room was basic at best. The cleaning job was not that great either. Handprints on the toilet and sink handle, smudges on the table. strange brown stains on the light switches. The room was also fairly hot and stuffy. There would have been a decent view out the window of the North Ga mountains, but there was a piece of the roof overhang dangling in front of my window and below looked like a small junk yard for no longer used hotel items. This was an overnight work trip for me, so I cleaned up what I could in the room quickly and made my way off to my job for the evening. When I returned the room was still hot and stuffy, but turning the unit off and on again as well as setting it 62 did get it going, but it took maybe two hours to cool the room down. Upon loading out the following morning the room key stopped working so after my first trip to the car I had to go back down to the front desk to get that sorted. A day or so later I noticed a charge on my credit card from the hotel; which was strange as the room had been prepaid three months in advance. At first I thought it was just a pending for incidentals that would disappear, but that was wishful thinking on my part as they had charged me again for the room. There is only one person who works there that can sort this out. After four calls to the hotel and two conversations with this person the charge is still currently on my credit card, but in dispute. I think for the price (headaches) you would probably do WAY better trying to set up a local rental or AirBnb in this area.

When arriving we were told the hot tub and pool were closed. Also, no breakfast was being served. We got to our room, settled in and found bloodstains in the first room in both white comforters. I am in property management, so I know they were from bed bugs. I also killed two bugs in this room, one spider and one ant. We contacted the front office and they offered to get us another room. I got the key and went to examine the room. The bedding didn't have any stains, which was positive. However, I did find a bedbug on the ceiling/wall. I brought this bedbug along with the photos of the bugs I killed and bloodstains to the front desk. He apologized and helped find us a new hotel to stay in down the road. However, we ended up having to pay WAY more than originally planned. This was a very disappointing experience. Side note. even the hotel down the road served grab and go breakfast. I do not see a reason why Holiday Inn did not offer the same. I will NOT be going back and really think Holiday Inn should reimburse us for the cost difference.

"Do not let Reservation Desk make reservations for your hotel."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I wanted to cancel the reservation but was unable to. The wedding we were attending was canceled. I had made the reservation through, where the couple had all their wedding information. The site used, as it turns out a third party for making the reservation. So when I called Holiday Inn Express folks they said, nothing they could do. I could never get ahold of the third party. held on line forever, then the only option was to leave a number and no one ever called me back, after multiple tries. The third party was Reservation Desk. You should ban them from taking reservations for your hotel. Holiday Inn Express and the parent company should not use them ever. When the wedding occurs next year, I will not make a reservation at your hotel just because of this experience, even though it wasn't your particular hotel's fault. Your parent company should have allowed me to cancel.
