Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I didn't even bother to give my IHG rewards number, but for the dissatisfaction will remedy that tomorrow. We choose the hotel because our friends daughter was getting married and they choose this and got a "rate" for out of town guests. $ 200/ night, plus tax. Had we been going for another reason, we would have looked at reviews and never choose this hotel. The good- staff was very friendly, water pressure was fabulous! They are remodeling- but apparently have been for some time. Our room furniture was stained and or ripped and old. Bed was ok. Blinds didn't fully close. Mildew in the bathroom and dingy. There were hangers to hang our clothes on the iron board holder! Breakfast was average, at best - we were on the later side, but no fruit! I've never seen no fruit. When we left for the wedding after 4:00- we asked it they were going to service our room. It wouldn't have been serviced if we didn't ask. We were told at check in the heated pool, isn't. Talking with other guests at the wedding- several were given rooms that were already occupied. Several on the 3rd floor were told it was the first of the floors to be remodeled - and was no better than ours! And yet all of the remodel has been months in the works- kind of pathetic for a chain this big.

We were there in the middle of renovations so have hopes that when finished, the hotel will be in better shape. The staff were very friendly. The location is great for anyone visiting Hiawassee. Our bed was uncomfortable so that's why I rated this hotel as only average. We've stayed in two other Holiday Inn Express properties in the past couple of months and both of those had king sized beds that were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is good.

This is a very good hotel, tucked away off Main Street. Even locals may not be aware of it's location, but it is just ip the hill. They have very reasonable rates and great rooms. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Hiawassee.

Cleanliness, service, furnishings…all reminded me of my days at Motel 6….NOT Holiday Inn quality. I wasted my reward points on this place. I should have stuck with Hampton Inn. At times like this, it seems that hotels would want to provide service and comfort to keep the frequent travelers.

The only thing good is the bed was nice. All of the other furniture was worn out. Some of the rooms were updated and we asked about changing rooms. We were told that they didn't allow changing rooms. We were there for a week and none of the ice machines were working. I would be ashamed to have my Brand name on this hotel.

The staff was friendly throughout our one night stay. We were picking my daughter up from camp the next day and did not want to drive from South Georgia super early. The hotel was nice enough, comfortable beds. You could tell they were doing upgrades as there were still things to be done in the bathroom in our room. The pool was ice cold, despite being advertised as heated. The breakfast was good. Also, too much noise in the halls at night and no one attempted to stop the people making noise. Overall, nice feel to the hotel.

This hotel is not only in a physical state of disrepair but has absolutely terrible management. I stayed at this hotel for one night when I was in the area. It is overpriced on weekends but I would have been okay with the price if it has at least been clean and modestly comfortable. When I walked in, there were bugs in the room which I killed. The window shades would not close and there was no soap. They resolved that but the next morning when I woke up there were ants all over the bathroom floor. Hotel staff promised to give me a few points for the inconvenience but months later, this has not been taken care of. I have logged over 600 hotel nights.....this hotel should be kicked out of IHG.

We were just at the hotel for one night but had told our grand daughter she would be able to play in the pool. No such luck. The hotel is being updated and our room was half done I guess. The new walk in shower was nice but there was no place to set anything and no grab bar. The bath gel was empty. There was no closet which was ok since our stay was short. There was no light at the desk. One of the lamps had no light bulb. These are some minor things but annoying. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was a good size room. The breakfast was what you would expect. The lady working the breakfast room was friendly and busy bringing out items as needed. Location was great since we were going the rodeo at the fairgrounds, just minutes away.

I am still here at the time of this writing, waiting to hear back from the hotel manager, I checked in 4 nights ago, after having booked two months ago for a business stay. At checkin I saw plastic over interior doors, so asked about the pool. I was told it was under construction and I should have seen that when I made the booking. I had not. And it was disappointing, because one of the reasons I chose this hotel was due to the pool (I swim a lot). The next day I came into my room to see that it had not been serviced. Odd, knowing they had housekeeping operating. While in the restroom, I heard someone try multiple times to get in with a key card! When I opened my door, there were two shirts hanging from the knob, and someone's luggage in the doorway. I stepped over it and went down to the lobby and asked, "Did you give someone my room?" The clerk looked up my room and said, you were listed as a no show. Really? I was standing right there and had been there since the previous day. He asked if I had checked in late, and in fact I had tried to check in early, but was told I had to wait until 2pm or I would be charged an extra $35. So I drove around town for 2 hours and came back at 2 and was checked in. He said, your room shows clean and vacant. I said it is neither clean nor vacant, and explained the lack of housekeeping. He rekeyed my key and gave me towels, promising that my room would be serviced the following day. The next day after a day in class, my key card would not work. Afraid they had given my room away again, I went downstairs...again. The clerk explained sometimes on long stays the key cards 'wear out'. I said, you just rekeyed this yesterday! He gave me a new card, and I came in to the following situation: the blanket had literally been thrown across the bed and then abandoned; there were bits of pizza on the floor (the only explanation that I can think of is that the housekeeper dropped the pizza box that I had put in the trash can and didn't pick up anything but the box); no glasses or coffee had been replaced; there was still a wet washcloth in the shower. I went down to the desk and asked for a manager. I was told he had gone for the day and would be back the next afternoon. I said I would seek him out and to please be sure the room was serviced. Yesterday the room was serviced (sort of). The bed was made and the trash emptied. Towels were replaced but thrown haphazardly on the shelf. The pizza bits were gone but crumbs remained. The manager was at dinner when I came to speak with him, and to his credit he came to see me upon his return. He had been told the situation, and was apologetic. He added points to our rewards account and ASSURED ME that my room would be serviced properly. I thanked him for his attention and time. Fast forward to 30 minutes ago when I came back to my room. No one has set foot in this room. Everything (unmade bed, used cups and coffee, towels, trash) was exactly as I left it this morning!!! I've been nice so far. Now I'm pissed. I'm spending $600 to stay here, and as Gold Elite rewards members, we obviously spend money regularly with this chain. I hope somehow I can get appropriate compensation (and some clean towels).
