While there isn’t much to choose from in Blairsville, GA in accommodations, this hotel doesn’t even try to live up to its name. Old, outdated and sadly managed. Asked for a blanket and was told they didn’t have any! Also greeted with NO COFFEE or TEA at breakfast due to maintenance issues. Food choices were terrible and few. You could have done better at a gas station. Noisy, old window air conditioning. Musty, damp rooms that were barely clean. Bed was comfortable, water was hot and their were locks on the door.
Ms Patty at the desk is so friendly. She helped us get another handicap room when the one we originally were going to be in was next to noisy kids. The indoor pool is so nice, was great after a very long day. The room is heated to 82 degrees, which made the water pleasantly comfortable. The lobby and room were very clean. The roll in shower was great. Although we do bring our own shower mat with us because the tubs are always so slick. The bed was so comfortable that it let us fall asleep almost immediately.
We stayed here as a last resort. It was getting late, so instead of going to the next town we stopped here. Room was clean, however it would never get cold. Air ran all night. Seemed like a safe area and quiet. Hallways did smell a little musty. Pricey for one night. Wasn’t a bad place to stay, just average.
Front desk very confused from the start until the end. Towels from the previous guest were left in the bathroom. Sink in bathroom didn't drain. The tv remote control was missing in action. If you can find someplace else do!
The musty smell is all over the hallways, everything in the room was wet the entire stay because air conditioning ran all the time (very loudly) but did not remove humidity. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was mediocre, not even Sams or Costco quality. You can tell owners don’t invest in property. Choice Hotel group should be ashamed. Will not return.
My wife and I have stayed here many times as we're building a house in Blairsville. Everything was fine for a budget motel....until the last time. Upon getting set up in our room we noticed the toilet didn't flush properly. When flushed, the bowl would fill to almost spilling over, then slowly recede. That's without any solids. When I went to the front desk to ask to have someone look at it, the attendant handed me a plunger and was asked to let her know if I could get it cleared up. I couldn't. So she moved us from our King size bed room to a double queen. No apologies. No How can I make it better. When I contacted corporate via email, I received and email hoping my next stay will be better. Needless to say they won't get the opportunity.
We were part of a large family/group that was in town for a funeral. The team at this hotel could not have been nicer or made us feel more at home. From the front desk, to housekeeping to the maintenance crew.....everyone at this hotel was so friendly and accommodating. They let our family gather in the breakfast room in the evening which worked out perfect. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and came with refrigerators (I have included a photo of our room with this review). The hotel offered a complimentary breakfast and they were helpful with dining recommendations (lots of restaurants close to the hotel).
This is a nice hotel in an excellent location. It is not huge, but not small. It is only 2 floors, all interior rooms. I definitely felt safe here. The room was clean and updated, bed was super comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and professional. I do have a few complaints. The pool was a little murky, definitely needed some chlorine. The breakfast did not have any hot options, unless you wanted to microwave a frozen omelet. The doors and walls are thin. We heard people loudly in the halls after 10PM and heard a family arguing next door. Other than that I would recommend this hotel. It is clean and what I would expect from Choice Brand Hotels. We would stay here again.
Pros: clean, decent room Cons: way-over-priced for what you get. Free breakfast is just coffee, o.j. and a sweet roll. No cereal and milk, nothing hot. Wifi is complicated, annoying, slow, and not secured. Hard to find this motel. Very slow check-in.
Staff very accommodating. Easy check in and out. Plenty of parking. In these pandemic times, they still had breakfast with no hot items (other than a waffle maker). Social distancing took place in the breakfast room. Restaurants were a little bit of a walk but some not too far. Great base for touring the area. Room was clean, bathroom clean, bed comfortable. I would stay here again.
