Reviewed 13 April 2017

Rather dated room but reasonably clean. Cable TV, microwave and refer in the room. Two floors with outside openings. Nothing much around other than easy access to Appalachian Trail. There's a pool but it wasn't open. Breakfast was below par. small selection and smaller quantities. No eggs ,bacon or ham etc. No waffles.

Earlier in the day we dropped off my son and his friends at springer summit to hike the Appalachian trail. Cell service was spotty coming down the mountain and this motel was the first place to pop up to stay. I must say I was a little nervous at first, BUT ....as we pulled up we noticed it was near...

If you consider staying here do yourself a favor and say no and keep looking. Great location, must have been quite the place in it's hey day but that was long ago. Very poorly kept hotel, no other way to say it. The owners are just not putting any money into maintenance or upgrades. This a low-cost hotel and not...

The place is OK, but not well maintained. Room was nice and warm and cleaned each day. The cereal is good for the breakfast , but do not try the sausage biscuit ( McDonald's is a cross the street). If you book through a booking agent, do not book for but the mimium you need and then if more nights...

We drove up from Florida to get a jump start on our vacation in Blue Ridge GA. We arrived at 12:30 AM and the owner was on duty. Check in was a breeze. The room was clean, a bit dated, TV worked with many stations and the rate was good. We skipped breakfast and went to McDonalds.

We chose to stay in Ellijay because of the convenient location to Amicalola State Park. It is slightly better than similar class of motels we stayed at in Chattagoona and Birmingham. Breakfast, service, and room was fine for the one night stay.

We've stayed here numerous times. It's a comfortable motel. It's older, but renovations have commenced. Animal friendly rooms & walking areas are there. Bobby, the front desk attendant is awesome, I'd suggest you wait till after 2pm & call him to book or book online. The other woman that answers in the morning is very rude and hard to understand....

OK for one night but looks better on outside than inside. Inside desperately needs to be updated and renovated. No microwave. When a/c was on room smelled disgustingly of URINE. Big box TV, no flat screen. Did have cable. Lots of noise from upstairs. Will look for another option next trip.

The tv is an old box type with a horrible picture. The beds are TINY, somewhere between a twin & double. I am 5'5" & short legged. My feet were flat on the floor & it wasn't even the height of my knees. My boyfriend almost fell in the floor when he laid down. We had to sleep in separate...
