Check in was uneventful with a room away from the elevator and ice machine as requested. The room was pretty standard for HIE. Isn't that why you stay here? No surprises!👍. They are currently running a late checkout called sleepapalooza campaign for weekends. They have an amusing booklet on getting a good night's sleep. It's full of good advice and... More

This is the best IHG property for 100 miles. It's newly renovated and the oversized rooms have large HDTVs with good reception, new linens, and a Keurig coffee maker. They also take good care of IHG Membership Rewards elites. Everything about this hotel feels new. I moved here from the HIE in Hiawassee and the difference is night and day... More

Pleasant staff, clean & attractive facility, comfortable bed, good breakfast options. We rode in from Georgia, arriving after dinner. The front desk manager was very sweet. She came outside to greet us and to show us the best place to park our motorcycle so it would be visible on their security cameras throughout our stay.

We're in Dahlonega a few times a year visiting a child at University of North Georgia. The Holiday Inn Express is always a nice, clean place to stay. Staff is always friendly and helpful. It's a little hard to get into coming from town as the entrance is on a curve so use caution. Dahlonega is a beautiful mountain town.

Just a quick one night stay. Hotel was clean and comfortable, all equipment worked in the exercise room, breakfast was good as expected. Hotel is kind of tucked away off the main drag but is quiet and well kept. Staff is friendly enough and scenery is nice. We would stay here again.

Quiet place. Clean. Great breakfast! Staff, for the most part was very friendly. Would stay here again if we returned to this area. Centrally located. Room had nice fridge, microwave, and Krueger coffee set up. Only complaint, I don't care for the small hair dryers. I usually take my own for a extended stay.
