"Great lodge but be prepared to use extra blankets!"
This is a very nice state park lodge. We had a problem with the heater in the room not functioning. They handled the problem very nicely by upgrading us to a better room, but unfortunately the heater in that room also did not function. They sent a maintenance person who supposedly fixed the heater but it still did not warm the room. Fortunateky they […] provided an electric space heater which worked.

"Unicoi--Great place to stay!"
Beautiful surroundings! Lodge very pleasant. Heat in room a bit noisy. We love Unicoi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very quiet, just what the doctor ordered. Loved the accomodations and would recommend it to others. The staff were very pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have never been so disappointed in a hotel in my life! There was no microwave or refrigerator in the room which is something they all need! The day we were to leave I called down to the front desk and told him we would be at least a half an hour lateand I went to the car and came back and we were locked out of our room that is utterly ridiculous! […] We also went to the dinner buffet the food was cold and way too expensive! Out of desperation because there was no place nearby to eat we went to the buffet the next morning for breakfast it was way too expensive the biscuits were hard as rocks, We were very disappointed! And on top of that we wound up paying $175 for one night! We will never ever stay there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and quiet"
As a get-away from work, my friend and I stayed at the lodge for 2 nights. It was comfortable, clean and very quiet. The dining room prices were not too unreasonable and the food was good. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoy the park near Helen Octoberfest"
Visiting Helen for Octoberfest. Decided to enjoy the nearby state park. We had room 19, in Lodge A. Nice room, small but fine, teen loved the loft, thin walls so could hear everyting next door, nice firm beds, spectacular view, great breakfast but on the pricey side, would make an excellent place for a weekend retreat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Didn't get the WHOLE story"
When I made my reservations, I was not told that there were MAJOR renevations going on at the facility. We were one of only about four guest in the facility. The resturant was not operational, construction was going on all throughout the facility, the agents of the facility were not apologetic or helpful at all. We were very dissapointed as we had stayed […] at this facility before and were truly looking to enjoy the experience we had experienced before. VERY DISSAPPOINTED.

"wait til they finish remodel?"
Unicoi is not like it used to be and doubt the current refurbish will help. the food situation is terrible and only the setting justifies the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good breakfast, uncomfortable beds"
My husband and I went here for an overnight stay for our anniversary. The man who checked us in wasn't too friendly or helpful. We needed a luggage cart and he showed us where they were. However you can't use it unless you cut through the lobby which he did not tell us. In addition there were stairs leading down to our room on the first floor so overall […] the cart was a problem. Then the beds in the room were like sleeping on rocks. The hotel is close to the fishing and beach. Breakfast was good with lots of choices but over priced. I recommend the Hampton Inn in helen over anything else. Nice cozy beds, good view, separate bathroom and on the river. I would not stay at the lodge again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room smelled old and we had no cell phone service. Even the WIFI did not work on my laptop. When I complain they told me to try standing in another area. There was no mini refrigerator in the room. Not worth the money!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"nothing like they advertise"
I was extremely disappointed in service. Desk staff very rude and cold. They advertise a game room it is not there. The swimming area and several fishing spots were not any where near lodge must less within walking distance. You must carry your luggage from parking lot to you room which is a long distance. Very expensive to eat at their cafe and they […] charge extra to have a small refrig. There is no microwave or coffee pot. Just bad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good price, nice view"
The lodge was fine but not exceptional. It is a little older and run down. The $20 buffet was the only option for breakfast on Sunday and it was just ok. For $20 per person you could have much better food and a drink included at most restaurants. The location was only 5 minutes from Helen, beautiful mountain setting and plenty of common areas. The ranger […] was very helpful giving us tips about where to go for a day trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very pretty setting, nice walking trails."
The lodge was experiencing problems with water and sewer in our building. The water was brown coming from the faucet, the staff did provide us with bottled water. We were told it should soon clear up, never did. There was also some kind water over flow in parts of the building. We came back after being out for several hours to find back up of dirty […] water in the bath room sink. We were moved to another room in another building with assistance of a staff member.

The restaurant at the facility was too expensive for the quality of food. Even the wait staff thought it was too expensive. We found other places to eat after our first 2 meals. AC unit too noisy. No fridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good for the price."
It was a lovely hotel and I had a great time staying there, but things could have been better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, beautiful surroundings, sweet staff!"
We stayed in a double queen room with our two small kids. There was plenty of space to spread out. We loved the easy accessibility to hiking, swimming, etc. The hotel staff, especially at the lodge restaurant, was ridiculously accommodating. Our 4 year old can talk anyone's ear off and our waitress totally had a ball playing with her. She even brought […] a seat for her baby doll. The only drawbacks - the hotel room windows actually open, which was lovely in terms of the fresh mountain air, but treacherous because they are rickety and our screen actually fell out while my one year-old was playing at one of the windows. Luckily, I caught the screen and my husband reinserted it, but yikes! That could have been scary. Last thing - the swimming area at the lake is great, except there is NO shade and we were there 4th of July weekend. It was HOT in the sun and not a pleasant break from our hike around the lake (which was great!). Bring a shade umbrella if you go! We will definitely return. If you plan to travel around the holidays, expect heavy traffic, as the road into Helen (nearest town) is narrow. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed our stay. Small bear spotted. We watched him climb a tree, get food out of the garbage can, and hide from people. Walked the trails. Enjoyed the beach area & anna ruby falls.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Wonderful state park; nice lodge"
We spent 4 days in lodge bldg. D. The rooms are outdated but were clean and comfortable. Bedding was crisp and clean, and there were plenty of towels. The location is great, with so much to do in the area. A fridge. & microwave would have been nice. The buffet was not open during the week but the restaurant at the lodge was good. Hope to return soo […] n. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not like it used to be"
For years in the past, this facility offered very good food service. Now, it has nothing like the past. The grounds around the lodge have gone to weeds and has a general look of neglect due to state funding cuts. The value is just not there. Helen has many better places to stay and probably the same or lower cost because Unicoi is out of town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful Unicoi State Park. Lots of hiking, terrific lake with boat rentals and a sandy beach. Nearby Anna Ruby Falls. Close enough to the activities in Helen (about a 3 minute drive) but far enough away that you will feel like you are in another world. We stayed in a lodge room that was very comfortable and sparkling clean. Each wing of the lodge […] as a communal area with sofas and a fireplace. Very friendly staff. On site restaurant. Will be back again soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay in the Mountains"
I had never been to Unicoi Lodge before. Very pleased with my stay. The value was worth it. My room was very comfortable and very clean. My relatives commented that the facilities are a little outdated, however, that didn't bother me. As long as it was clean and pleasing, I was extremely satisfied.Genuine Expedia guest review
Ac/heater would not get correct temp. No water pressure I'm sure due to some government water saving act.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really enjoyed staying here. Location was perfect for us. Helen with it's shopping and dining and Unicoi with it's beautiful woods and hiking. Nice mix. Staff was great and sincerely did their best to insure a nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best customer service"
We were pleasantly surprised to have such a jewel less than two hours from home. The staff was excellent, the rooms were clean and we felt at home. The lodge is going through a renovation, which will be great because the rooms are a little outdated - but very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to camp"
12/24/14 Phillip S
The campground was well maintained and clean. The restrooms were clean and warm. The camp sites are a little too close together and not all of the full hook ups have 50 amp service - I wish I would have know before I picked a site and started getting set up. Also, there is ZERO TV reception. All in all, I would most certainly like to visit again.
camped for a week. best ever. was very clean and facilities were well kept. staff were ultra friendly. town is a short drive away and there was plenty to do. will visit again fo sho, cus unicoi keeps it the realeast. word up, from miami where we keep it truer than the gospel.
12/13/14 Hannah Rose M
I booked a room at the lodge and I was very disappointed. For the price of the room that I got there were very few amenities and the room was odorous, dirty looking, small, and very outdated. I understand that the area is nice and the prices mat reflect in the veiw from our window. But I would have been able to pay for a Hampton Inn and been much, much happier for the same price.
"Camp Sites are very small"
12/09/14 Diane C LaGrange, Georgia
We actually liked our stay but the camp sites are very small and close to each other. The full hook-up sites have a bathroom very close by and the sites without the full hook-up have to walk quite a bit to the next bathroom which doesn't make any sence. We stayed for 3 nights and reported the very first day that the heater in the men bathroom was broken but it didn't get fixed while we were there. It is a challenge to take a shower in an unheated bathroom when it is 32 degrees outside. The walking trails are very nice and the guy who checked us in ( unfortunately I didn't get his name) seemed to really love his job.
"Our Thanksgiving camping trip to Unicoi State Park"
12/08/14 Liana M
We stayed on Thanksgiving weekend in an RV. Was chilly but beautiful. Got a spot on the ridge. Very nice camping spots; some with full hook ups, others ( like ours with water and electric) and then there are the squirrels nest which are charming and the tent sites as well. There is something for everyone as there are cabins and you can stay at the big lodge as well. We had lots to do as there are several hikes, a large playground for the kids and a giant fire pit, plus the visitor center/store. The lodge is nice with the buffet. A bit pricey but who cares, you're there to unwind and enjoy. We did the lake trail which is 2.5 miles round trip. Easy for families. You can even hike to Anna Ruby Falls for a nice 6 mile work out. We drove there (only 3 miles from campground) Wow, what a place.The early indigenous peoples sure picked a beautiful spot. The staff was friendly and the bath houses were spacious, warm and private. They were very clean most of the time. The dog friendly campground is great and everyone picks up after their pooch which is awesome. Plenty of garbage sites and extra bags are located inside a take and leave box. Our dogs loved it. We saw 3 white tail deer on our first day there! We camped, hiked, ate, drank wine and warmed up by the fire at night with blankets and made smores. Aaaahhh.....So, yeah I recommend this place. We had a great, relaxing time.
"An Awesome place to relax and experience a change of pace"
12/07/14 Paul C Blairsville, Georgia
Starting with the rooms---they were well maintained and clean The Meals were excellent, and sufficient to curb any appetite The meeting rooms were sufficient to handle the crowd and acoustics The Campus is well laid out and easy to go from dormitory to Meeting rooms in any kind of weather The huge fireplace is wonderful to sit and read by or to chit-chat with friends
12/07/14 Laurell W Auburn
The beds were pretty hard, and the bathroom was a little run down. The air conditioner/heater would not adjust properly. Even though it was advertised that the rooms had been remodeled it looked like our room was only partially done.
"Lovely setting, rustic accommodations."
12/07/14 NancyGal Snow Hill, North Carolina
Stayed in Lodge. Restaurant in lodge is good but expensive, but there's plenty of dining options in town. Nice hiking trails. The bed in my room, which had not been updated, was a bit hard. Lodge buildings A B and C have nice common areas with fireplace.
"Unicoi Lodge Beautiful North Georgia Montains"
We had a great stay as always. Gorgeous location:-). Restaurant was being worked on so we didn't get a chance to eat there but ate in the bar and the food was good and hearty. Rooms are adequate, nothing special but clean and comfortable. All in all a good value for the location.
"Great weekend getaway"
Rented a cabin for a quick weekend getaway with our fur kids and had a great time. Cabin was cozy and the trails are gently lit for our night walks to see where we were going but no so much to disturb any wildlife. Dog friendly cabins are limited. But I was happy to find one available at the time I needed. Quick car drive to quaint town of Helen where you can get great food (Muller's Famous Fried Cheese Cafe- YUM! Best chicken schnitzel!) and entertainment. So much to see and do where Unicoi State Park is located that we'll have to come back again :)
