Hanahan, SC
Reviewed 19 July 2014

A very nice property. Clean rooms, nice beds, bathroom fixtures all clean and functional. Free breakfast was well supplied and was monitored by an attendant. Location is good; not right in the middle of any particular town, and 5-10 minutes drive away from several dining options. The property is on the top of a hill, with a very very steep...

This hotel has good price, a very decent breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room and the bathroom were both very clean. The room is bright and the beds comfortable. I strongly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is conveniently located in the mountains of North Georgia close to most mountain attractions. It is standard for Holiday Inn which is fine for business travel. One major improvement needs the be addressed. The elevator is situated in each hallway behind a closed door. Moving your luggage back and forth is a real challenge if you are by...

I am a regular IHG patron and usually stay 50 plus nights a year with IHG hotels. Holiday Inn Express is usually the hotel of choice due to location and price. When I am booking for my work team of around 4 guys I can usually count on the HI Express delivering a constant level of service. This HIE in...

The Holiday Inn Express in Dillard, GA is a fine choice if you need a place to rest your head for a night while in the North Georgia Mountains. There is nothing exceptional about this property, and there was nothing wrong with it during our stay. Reception went smoothly and the staff was friendly. The room was standard for a...

We stayed overnight on our way elsewhere. Okay motel, exactly what one expects from a Holiday Inn Express in a small town, but nothing more. But, we left an item in our room. The front desk called and left a message about it before we even knew that the item was forgotten. Since it could not be mailed, we took...

This is an average hotel. Nothing to write home about. The breakfast was okay but lacked in many ways. The rooms are very old looking and worn. The air conditioning needs to be replaced. Staff was friendly.
