Hi Shacker06, Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to share your experience with us. It is great to read that you appreciated our front desk staff. I am concerned to hear that issues with the room temperature, room cleanliness, and Wi-fi connectivity did not make for a relaxing stay. As a valued guest, I know this is not the kind of experience you expect and I am very sorry that we fell short. Kindly note that we do not take your comments lightly.

While we understand your stay was not 100% satisfactory, we sincerely hope to get another chance to give you a better experience on your next visit to Hiawassee. Thanks, Christian C.

We stayed here only for one night and chose this hotel specifically because they served breakfast. We were there for business, which required internet to prepare for our meeting on Monday morning. There is none. They say they have it, but they do not. There were cleaning

Olga I, I'm disappointed you did not enjoy your visit due to the issues you had with our internet connection and breakfast selection. What you have mentioned here certainly isn't the experience we want for you. I've noted your feedback and shared this with the hotel. They will make sure that actions are taken so similar situations won't occur again. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. In spite of the troubles, I hope you give us another try. Regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

the correct and definitive answer to this very good question is "21 years of age", as I just called & spoke with the hotel front desk and the lady that answered the reception says , "that is our owners policy."
