Stayed just one night while doing some sightseeing in the area. Room was clean and modern. Everyone was friendly and the check in was very fast. I did not visit the gym, so I'm not sure how that was. Overall no complaints and would stay again.
Was visiting Piedmont College in Demorest, so this property was perfect. Very clean, small hotel. Rooms very nicely furnished, provided sufficient towels, etc. Only complaint is tiny fitness center: it was hard to find and would have felt cramped if another guest worked out at the same time.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times over the years, but not in the last few. I remember it always being pretty average (i.e. nothing to really complain about, but nothing above and beyond). This ended up being one of my more miserable stays in a hotel in my 11+ years of traveling for work.

About a day into the stay my nose caught a strange smell when I was sitting on the side of the bed. I thought it was my clothes or shoes since I'd just been in the gym but after giving them all the smell test, I determined it wasn't me. Then I got a little lower and realized that the carpet stunk. There were stains in several places in the room and in general the carpet was filthy. I went ahead and moved away from that spot and went to sleep. The next day I noticed the smell a lot more; so much so that I smelled it while laying in the bed. I then recognized it as being the smell of stale urine. I decided to check out Trip Advisor reviews for the hotel, and I came across one from just last month where a guest complained about their room smelling like urine, addressing it with the front desk, and them seeming to already be aware of it but still putting a guest in the room [see 09/11/17 review by N9367EJmatthews]. I'd be willing to bet that this was the same room and they've yet to THOROUGHLY address the problem (i.e. shampoo or replace the carpet). Which just shows they don't give a rip about the guest, just making sure that room is bringing in money. The rate happened to be $166/night by the way which is ridiculous for this hotel. In another review, a guest also brought up the astronomical rate and received a reply about it being "peak season" for the area with Oktoberfest, leaf watchers, etc. So there's that. Being that I've spent nearly 1,000 nights in Hilton properties over the past 11 years, I can say that this hotel during peak season is worth about $89-99/night and during their peak season about $119/night TOPS. But if it's market driven then there is folks like me that paid $600 for a three night stay. Won't happen again. If I'm back in the area for work I'll drive 30 minutes to the new Hampton in Lavonia or to the Hilton Garden in Gainesville.

After realizing the smell was pee and seeing how filthy the carpet was I was grossed out to walk on the carpet and pretty much be in the room. I kept my shoes on until it was time to go to bed. I ended up stuffing one of the bed comforters onto that spot to try and mask the smell which worked pretty good. So just a heads up...they probably put it right back on the bed. If your duvet smells like pee now, that's why. This pee smell and nasty carpet stressed me to the point that the filthy casing on the bathroom door, the dirty light switch in the bathroom, the children's toy blocks under the edge of the bed, and the super loud AC and fridge weren't even that big a deal.

If I hadn't been halfway through my stay and my stuff wasn't scattered all over the room, I definitely would've asked for a different room. Instead I just want to warn future travelers that if you are in this room, and you smell urine, then they continue to slap the guest in the face and book this room.

I'm a Hampton Inn Believer! That's where I always stay no matter where I go since I have a family of four with 2 teenage boys. The bed was comfy. The room had a microwave and mid size fridge. The bathroom was good until I got in the shower and the water pressure was definitely lacking and the shower rod was falling off the wall so the curtain never stayed shut. But the breakfast bar definitely made up for it with a variety of prepared foods, fruits and cereals. They had plenty of toppings for your oatmeal and waffles. They have a pool but it was packed when I went out. My 27 yr son enjoyed the gym. Not the best but definitely not the worst I've stayed in.

Hello Tina! Thank you for writing a Trip Advisor review and for staying with us at Hampton Inn by Hilton Cornelia. We are glad that you were able to experience our wonderful breakfast. I am sorry that you experienced some difficulty with the shower rod. Maintenance has been notified of the problem with the rod and the rod and wall has been fixed. The pool area is definitely full since we have been experiencing 95 to 100 degree weather! Even though the area was full, I hope that you were able to enjoy it some during your stay. We hope that you will stay with us in the future!
