Comfortable but pricey for their "Balcony" room. Pro: Hotel is right next to a very good restaurant & access to the adjacent river. Con : Furniture is pretty dated inside the room. Balcony had 2 cheap plastic chairs & a small plastic table. I was disappointed fr the price we were paying.

The Bavarian motif is wonderful.It is not an fancy or ritzy place, but very nice. Sitting on our patio facing the Chattahoochee river was so wonderful as we watched the rafters slowly floating down the river. So relaxing. The new "low flow" commodes were so quiet and efficient. The Staff was very nice. This was our first stay on the... More

I really wanted the granddaughters to experience the Chattahoochee and Helen firsthand, and that they did. They enjoyed wading in the cold waters of the river from the hotel patio access. They enjoyed the walk-abouts in Helen, and being able to kick back and relax on the balcony overlooking the river and listening to the water cascading over the weathered... More

I have probably stayed at the Helendorf 12 - 15 times over the years and I love it. When you stay here, you can step out your hotel room door and right onto the bank of the river. It is also located right behind the best restaurant (The International Cafe) and across the bridge from the best shopping in town.... More

The hotel was nice, we checked into our room which was the second floor of the same building or an extension of the same building as the lobby. There was a nice balcony there, however all the room's a/c units where in that side of the building so the heat from them made the balcony intolerable. The breakfast was only... More

I planned to spend 5 days at the Helendorf with my children, but we left a day early because the beds were too hard for my back. We did get reimbursed for the day, so that was great. There really aren’t many great places to choose from in this town. The Helendorf, while it could use improvements, is about the... More

We arrived on Friday and checked in an hour early with no problem. This hotel is older and has had a makeover. We got a room overlooking the 'Hooch' and it was awesome! Private balcony on the 3rd (top) floor with a King bed. Great view of people tubing down the Chattahoochee and still relaxing away from them. From here,... More

We love the Helendorf and try to go a few times a year, usually in the summer. The recent renovations made a great place even better. We usually get a ground floor river view room with a back door and patio. The kids bring floats and tube from the bridge to the end of the hotel. A tubing company/water park... More

Great proximity to town plus the benefit of enjoying the tubers in the river float by your room. Obviously ask for a river view. We prefer the upper floors. Sometimes noisy on bottom level because partiers venture outside their room & onto the walk way outside their balcony. Rooms come with a kitchenette (sink, microwave, stove/oven, frig). You will need... More
