Nice Hotel, suite was nice (only 2 complaints, room was on the 1st floor right next to the elevator room, breakfast was horrible).. There was no management at this hotel to solve my simple concerns, These concerns would not stop me from staying at the Best Western again. They have a true diamond here that just needs polishing.

Well designed, clean, breakfast buffet was actually a buffet with hot items including eggs/meat/grits/oatmeal. And the selection changed daily. Restaurants were nearby as well as shopping/expressways.

this was a nice hotel. Rooms were nicely decorated, plenty of towels, Only problem we had was the air conditioning seemed to be a little off, we had to bump down to the 60's to get our room cool. We finally figured out that you could set the A/C to fan running continuously, which help a lot. Over all, nice... More

Stayed here one night in September. I didn't have high expectations of this hotel, and was pleasantly surprised. The staff are really nice, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. Nice amenities in the bathroom. Breakfast was very good! Didn't have a chance to use the pool. If I was in the area again, I would definitely stay... More

This was the first time I used trip advisor to book a hotel. The process was quick and easy. It's always hard finding a place for the first time that's near where you need to be.

Overall it is a nice hotel - we like the extra space in the room, tv channel selection, etc. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. It is a little difficult to get to but once you figure it out it is ok. There are a number of restaurants nearby and a very nice McDonald's across the highway.... More

nice location to stay at when visiting Lake Lanier. Located on the hill off the main road so noise level is at a minimum allowing a good night's sleep. Room is large and beds were comfortable. Bathroom looked like it might need some cosmetic work.
