Room # 227. We needed a ""as close to the ground floor room"" as possible. This room was just a few steps up with a lovely view of the parking lot. Very Very Quiet. Just want we wanted. Comes with microwave & a refrigerator that's killer cold...Nice place, our group used the conference room which was serviceable. If we go... More

The only reason the Helendorf got a 4 star from me was their location. Located directly on the Chattahoochee River in the alpine village of Helen Georgia, with rooms that open to the walk along the river bank a perfect holiday setting. The room was good sized, we had a double queen. There was a kitchenette with a small refrigerator,... More

The Helendorf River Inn is an exceptional choice for lodging in Helen and offers much more than a place to sleep. The Helendorf is not the Ritz-Carlton nor a 5-star resort but a charming 3.5 to 4 star accommodations. Overall the Inn has seen a fair share of updates and modern amenities added as the room has been renovated in... More

We were very excited about staying here after reading reviews, but after arriving, a little disappointed. The best thing about the hotel is the location. Everything is within walking distance. The parking lot was small. The rooms were average. The pool was heated, but you have to walk outside to get to. There's no bathrooms in the pool area nor... More

We stayed in the junior suite for our honeymoon; room had a river side balcony with fireplace and jacuzzi. Hotel definitely needs some remodeling done, and the room had a weird smell (which Im guessing is because it's an older hotel). Wasn't worth the price we paid, wish we would've just got a standard room. Great location and everything within... More

We planned to visit with a pet. When I called they girl was extremely nice and said they would honor the Groupon price with the additional charge for the dog since you could not book pet friendly rooms on Groupon. She told me about the property as well as the area. When I called back to reserve the room the... More

Right in the middle of Helen, Ga, you can walk anywhere in town and park at hotel with no parking problems. I have stayed here four times over the years and will revisit when next in Helen which I really enjoy. Balcony second floor rooms overlooking the little creek is fun and you can sometimes see rafters floating down the... More

Renovated Rooms, Great Views, Amazing Prices, Friendly Staff, Free Continental Breakfast (if you're into Continental) and Best Location. My mom and I came in the dead of winter & found this place the best part of our trip. What else is there?

Came for a night with my husband to check out Helen for the first time. (Christmas gift from the kids) the hotel front desk was great! (friendly, helpful) continental breakfast was plenty to get your day started, the room was clean, fresh and right on the riverside! The hotel location made it perfect....just walk right onto the main street to... More

Neat little hotel. Was clean and appeared to have had some renovations not too long ago which made the rooms and bathrooms really nice. Breakfast being included was a definite perk, and was always perfect to grab and go. Only real complaint was that the pool was closed the 2 days we were there and the kids were really looking...
