My husband and I went here for a couple days break from the daily grind. The hotel was very nice (much better than I expected). The room was renovated and modern and included a fridge and microwave (wish we had known in advance we would have brought more of our own food). The river balcony was nice, we sat by... More

Me and my family stayed here on July 24. The room was so bad I had an allergy attack. They moved us four rooms down and it was slightly better at first. However two doors down the room had something happen cause it was being aired out for hours and the smell was horrendous. We couldn't even use the bedding... More

This hotel was great! Fits right into the towns German theme. Rooms were updated and it was located on the Chattahoochee River where you can sit on your private balcony and watch the people floating by. There were also grills and picnic tables by the river. We had a microwave, small refrigerator and coffee pot in the room at a... More

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
