Helen in Georgia is something out of place in Georgia's countryside. The town is almost as if Bavaria was transported lock stock and barrel to the USA. Yet no one speaks Deutsch... The Helendorf looks Bavarian in all its detail, but is beyond the decor a basic American Inn. The room we had was clean and had all the amenities... More

We had stayed at the Helendorf Inn in Helen, GA two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. When we made the reservation this year they gave us a room with a balcony overlooking the Chattahoochee River. The room we had was just renovated with new furniture, bathroom, carpet, etc. Everything was awesome. We sat out on the balcony until midnight.... More

Nice hotel, clean rooms, nice & helpful desk staff. VERY comfortable bed. Within walking distance of just about anything in town. Riverfront balcony was nice. Cooktop & oven in room but no pots, pans, silverware or dishes - must bring your own. Older building but that is part of the appeal. Coffee maker with a little sugar & creamer but... More

Our room & riverfront view were great. The continental breakfast was just right. We had a great time. We were within walking distance of the Alpine Wedding Chapel where we were married on New Year's Eve, 2013. We also walked to the Chamber of Commerce's New Year's Eve Party which was a Great Family event. Everything considered, we had a... More

It was the best stay for us. The night clerk was friendly and was so eager to help us. The room was great and comfortable. The clock in the room was not set forward, but that is minor. I will stay at the Helendorf Inn again. By the way the Apple Cider was a perfect finish to a very cold... More

This hotel is awesome! The staff is always friendly, rooms are very clean, property is very beautiful. The hotel is right on the Chattahoochee so if you can opt for the river balcony room. I have stayed here about 30-40 times over the years and it just keeps getting better. They have renovated a while back adding new walking paths... More
