This place was strange to say the least. Not sure what is going on here. I think the IHG company has forgotten this place is in their fleet. It's old, dark and dingy. Room was satisfactory, beds were clean and comfy. Bathroom was clean, but rust on ceiling, mold on tiles, and a hole under the counter sink. Again, just old. The strange thing.. In the lobby, there was packaged food (can goods etc.), clothes, toiletries, tampons, shoes all over the place. It looked a collection for some type of blessing box. Maybe it was. Some days it was on a chair, kinda tidied up and gathered together. Other days, looked liked someone was living in the lobby. I was hoping to find this place to be my hotel for next 4 yrs as my daughter is now going to attending college near by, but I will have to continue my search.

This motel is ok, but for the price I thought it would be a lot nicer. It was clean and had friendly staff. The Juzzui was small. The ceiling in bathroom was rusting. There was an electric outlet right by the tub which could be dangerous. They do have a nice breakfast. The view from the window was just overlooking the ac unit and the satellite dishes. This is the 1st time we have stayed at a Holiday Inn and from the advertisement and what we have heard about them we expected a lot better. But it is ok and a place we would visit again but we do think it to be overpriced.

Hello U5024XIbeverlyb, Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to leave us a review. I am glad that you're pleased with the hotel tidiness and the service provided by our staff. However, I am sorry to learn that we failed to make your stay a complete success due to the issues encountered with the room allocation, bathroom condition, the hot tub, and that you found hotel pricey. Guest comfort and satisfaction are of the utmost concern to us and we are committed in providing the highest quality of accommodation and amenities to all of our guests. Trust that I have made the hotel management aware of your comments as a reference to be considered when planning future upgrades. I hope you will consider staying with us again when you travel back to the area! Many thanks, Jonathan A Case Manager IHGService

Bad experience at this hotel. Not sanitized, staff members not wearing masks (even though there is a sign) amd one of them wasn't covering his cough, some broken furniture and walls, smelly, outdated hotel, found hair on hair dryer, dust on vents and fixtures, hot tub wasn't working. Pool area outdated as well, screen broken. Trashy hotel. Location is good, small town, excellent parks, shopping near the city. Would Not recommend this hotel at all. Next time I will rather pay 20 extra bucks to other better hotels in Helen, or rent a nice cabin.

Stayed here several years ago, and it was a fairly nice hotel. It isn’t any longer, our first room had no heat or air working, and 45 minutes later we were switched to another one after it became apparent that the “ maintenance man “ wasn’t showing up. We now have heat, and after returning from dinner, we discover that there is ZERO hot water in the hotel, and guess what the “ maintenance man “ is working on it too. An hour and a half later still no hot water, which means cold showers. Oh yeah, and it’s 25 degrees outside, kind of when you would really want a hot shower ..... And even without these issues, hotel is pretty dated, and in need of a facelift. But the desk clerk at check in was a super nice guy, and did his best to make things better. Don’t stop here, keep riding .....

The hotel was very dated, it had rustic mountain-type decor, but badly in need of new furniture and accessories. The current furniture is very worn. The front desk clerk was very nice as well as the attendant in the breakfast bar.
