Please don't even waste your tie or money , I went despite the terrible rating and I was miserable. Our room was not only filthy , but we had not one single towel ! Asked for a non-smoking room , and we were put in a smoking room along with sheets that had burn holes in them. Trust and believe...

Hotel is clean, convenient to downtown and directly on the river. However, many repairs are needed. Refrigerator Froze our food, Air conditioner worked but would not turn off, locks were difficult to operate, And the hot water was only lukewarm. The continental breakfast was only processed sweets and drinks, Not even a piece of fruit. Despite the information on the...

Did not notice all the filth in room at first. Got here around midnight from long motorcycle trip. Put our things in room then went to eat at Huddle House. Got back to room afterward and began seeing all the above photo issues of our room. Too late to find any other options that late. Shook out bed linen outside...

This hotel is not worth paying $5.00 to stay at. The tv did not work after about an hour,carpets nasty,chairs were all stained so bad could not tell what color they were,lights in the halls do not come on until very dark,rooms are very musty smelling. Would not stay here again or recommend to anyone. Just Nasty

This review should be called "Beggars Can't Be Choosers". I dropped into town from hiking the Appalachian Trail. I used the Priceline app on my iPhone to find a room for the night. Several hotels were booked, this being a beautiful weekend in North Georgia. I took the less-expensive and available room at Hofbrau. The hotel is located at the...

The hotel is old, the fireplaces "have not worked for years", and the cable TV had a total of 7 fuzzy stations. The staff was courteous and the shower was hot. That was the best thing I could day about it. Find a better option!

Horrid place... Beautiful setting. Dilapidated rooms, too expensive for a supposed "nice place" the cheapest hotel is nicer than this run down mess! Clerk rude. Cancellation fee $100.00. Booked and saw the room, changed my mind.. Wanted to charge $100.00 fee!!! Rip off!!! If you go here wear a hazmat suit while you sleep!!!

The only thing good is the location by the river. The place is rundown, dirty and smells like wet dog. It is by far the dirtiest hotel I have seen in 20 years. The guy at the front desk was a delight on checking in and warned us that it wasn't the Hilton!

Horrible, filthy place. In desperate need of a tear down. Do not go there if you want a clean, habitable room. Truly a must miss . One couple had to make their own bed, hair was on the shower wall, and there were holes that were crudely patched. No ,no,no!!

We have stayed here two times now, though the rooms are a little dated ours have always been pretty clean. This past time was a little dusty but the bed and bathroom were fine. Good place to just crash if your site seeing. Always enjoy talking with Barnard, he's very nice and friendly and willing to work with you. The...
