Rooms are on the outside not the inside. If you are wanting inside rooms look elsewhere. However, the rooms are spacious like an open suite so very roomy-(pun intended). We had a king bed which was spacious enough for a family and if you want to go that route rollaway beds are available. It's a small Inn so call in advance if you need a rollaway. Rooms are clean and tidy. Great deal for less than a hundred bucks. I got the veterans discount so it only set us back $81 USD plus tax. Room was quiet and the AC/Heat worked great.
Blairsville is situated in the north Georgia mountains and is very picturesque especially this particular time of year as the leaves are changing making the mountains look like beautiful patchwork quilts. There are mountain view rooms but there is an extra fee. There will be a rate increase for the first and second week in November for the mountain viewing, after that rates should stabilize. As always ask for discounts.
Staff were kind, knowledgable and efficient. Check in was a breeze but Mary was a little perturbed at having to negotiate stairs to the outside rooms. She likes elevators. (Spoiled brat!)
There is a hot breakfast, eggs, sausage, toaster and waffle iron along with all the standard cold stuff-cereal, bread, yogurt etc. Breakfast is from 6:30 am-9:30 am.
Check out is 11am but like most every Best Western this can be extended to 12 noon for a late check out. They will extend further but it will set you back $10 USD per hour. I would call and make certain about anything past noon.
Standard in room amenities that we love are here-Microwave, coffee maker, fridge and flat screen TV with all the channels. No HBO. But all the kids channels, Disney, Nickelodeon and my favorite-Cartoon Network.
We were on the second floor and the shower had plenty of pressure and hot. For business travelers or long haulers there is a ironing board and iron. Blairsville is a small town so they roll up their sidewalks early so don't expect too much night life-we wanted to see a movie but the last movie at the theater was 7:30pm. For such a small town, there are quite a few Barber and beauty shops; the one Mary went to see got her in as a last minute walk in at 9:30am on a Monday morning! It's called "The Hair People" run by a lovely lady named Sandy Scerbo on 23E Murphy Hwy Blairsville. If you need some last minute hair do fixing, be sure to give Sandy a call, her shop is in the guide to Blairsville and in the back are all the businesses listed with the Chamber of Commerce. Ask for a copy of the book from the front desk. It will save you a lot of Google searches.
All in all a great place to stay. We will definitely be back and my lovely spoiled brat queen will just have to deal with the stairs!
