Nice Hotel over looking Lake Chatuge

Pros: Convenience
Cons: Exhaust fans in the bathrooms
Over the hotel was nice. Comfortable beds, decent continental breakfast. However, if you stay here when there is a concert next door at the Fairgrounds, you may want to request a room away from the 2nd floor balcony/mezzanine that over looks the lobby below. There were lots of people gathered there outside of our room, drinking and playing music (around 11pm). After I called the front desk - the party dispersed. But overall - it was a nice stay.

There for an event near by and not at the hotel long. Walked out to the outside patio and it needed some cleaning as well as maintenance around the doors etc.

Nice hotel and quiet location.

Pros: Location was good and quiet.
Cons: The bed was too hard and I did not sleep well. Woke up hurting in both shoulders every morning.
Location: We found very little to do in Hiwassee and ended up traveling to other locations like Helen, Clayton and Dillard.
When we checked in, Tina was working the front desk. Tina was so nice and very helpful. The room was spacious and we had a king size bed and table with two chairs. My wife was OK with the bed but I think I could of gotten a better nights sleep on the floor, the bed was so hard. Everything else was pretty nice.

Location: Not a lot to do beyond enjoying Lake Hiwassee and the landscape surrounding. Did attend a concert at nearby Anderson Music Hall.
The hotel is quite nice for this rural area. It is comfortable and easy to access. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. The staff was helpful and courteous.I would most definitely recommend and stay there again.

The hotel & staff was great. We had a wonderful stay. The sunrise over the lake was breathtaking every morning. We will definitely stay here again when we pass through again.

We spent one night in a king room with a view of the lake through the trees. We enjoyed sitting on the patio outside the lobby watching the beautiful colors of the sunset reflected on the clouds across the lake. The staff was helpful and the location was perfect for accessing our hike on a section of the AT the next day. We would definitely stay here again.
