This is the 3rd time in 15 years that we have stayed here and obviously would do it again. The hotel is quaint Bavarian style, and the location is in the heart of the small town. So, there is no worry about driving during Oktoberfest or any other time you become a little unsteady from Helen's wide array of food... More

My husband and I stayed here on our trip to Helen. We had a bottom floor room with a patio that overlooked the river. There was a kitchenette that we didn't use, but it had been updated, very nice. The only complaint was the lingering odor in the room from others cooking. We were able to walk out of the... More

We always stay here every year. Rooms are roomy, with kitchenettes, and patios right on the river. Older hotel, but rooms are very clean, and you can walk everywhere. Breakfast is filling, and the staff is super friendly. My only complaint is we wish the pool was a regular outdoor pool, instead of closed in. Not super clean and way... More

Stayed here on a Sunday night. This charming hotel is located right in the middle of Helen, making most attractions within easy walking distance for any age. Cool River tubing is just down the street and to the right, a walkable 0.7 mile away. The room initially seemed a bit dated (loved the real room key!) but the bathrooms and... More

First time to Helen GA. This hotel is going thru a remod and we lucked out with an updated room on the river side. We had two a joining rooms. One for the parents and the other for the kids. All rooms had outside entrances with - believe it or not - real old fashion keys. No card swipes. Each... More

The hotel is situated right on the Chattooga River. Watch the river tubers tube down the river along the walk way or from your balcony. All the rooms along the river have been redecorated. The hotel is situated perfectly next to town and everything is within walking distance. The rooms are oversized from a standard size hotel room. The only... More

We loved the Helendorf Inn. There were great views of the river and tubers from our balcony. There is a very nice updated patio that has a few different accesses to the river from a few steps. We seen it while tubing a few times and enjoyed playing in the river from the patio and watching the tubers ourselves. The... More

The first time we noticed the Helendorf was while tubing the Chattahoochee through the middle of town many years ago. Just as you pass under the bridge the Helendorf with its river view balconies is on the right. People were sitting out on their balconies waving at tubers and having grand old time. We've stayed here many a time since... More

Very nice and relaxing place to stay. Walking distance to everything. Very comfortable beds and the Riverveiw is awesome. The staff is excellent. We will be booking there again. We were there during Octoberfest and still the atopmosher was very pleasant and quiet.
