I would not recommend this hotel, they are under construction. The noise is vey bad. Dust everywhere exspecially the dining area. Guest service poor. They should tell people when the make or arrive that they are under construction. The construction people show up and start to work before 9am. They have no respect for the guest. Go the extra 13...

I wound up in Hartwell unexpectedly on a busy weekend, with motels in the NE GA - Clemson area filled due to a Clemson football game. No complaints about this Best Western - friendly, good rooms, sort of a meat-and-potatos place for a traveler looking for comfort and cleanliness. Note that the town fills up during fishing tournaments on the...

We stayed at this hotel while on a college visit in Franklin Springs. There were only a few hotels/motels to choose within a 10 mile distance to the college. The staff was friendly and helpful making our over nite stay pleasant.

We stayed at the Best Western Lake Hartwell Inn & Suites in Hartwell, Georgia in October 2015. The hotel is a nice, clean hotel with friendly staff. The staff are very helpful. The hotel does not have an elevator, so the front desk staff will help you take luggage to 2nd floor rooms.

Enjoyed our stay, the staff was generous, room was clean and enjoyed our breakfast (with a greeting from staff) each morning. I would recommend this Best Western for Leisure and or business stays. It was easy access to shopping and highway

The hotel was excellent, very clean, friendly, helpful employees, enjoyed the company of other guests. Hotel lobby was clean and smelled good. Rooms were clean, staff was very friendly & helpful. The only problem I had was the AC could not be regulated very well. It was cold. A really good deal at a great price.

Very good stay for the money. However, need an elevator. When first came into room it had odor of smoking room even though hotel is smoke free. But staff changed our room promptly. Very surprised at increase in room rate due to Georgia sales tax hike effective July 1st 2015, which cost 10% more than expected.
