The Helendorf is located on the banks of the Chatahoochie River as it flows through downtown Helen Ga.... I had a patio room, so you walk out of your large room out onto a completely lovely atmosphere. The river is flowing and you can sit at your patio and watch tubers as they float down the river. There are grills... More

If you are looking for a resort, keep looking. If you want a nice place to sleep that is with a 1 minure walk to everything then come here. Helen, GA is tiny, bUT a must see if you live in SE USA. Rooms are clean and ambience is rustic, German-like and exactly what it should be in a small... More

Rooms were nice and newly renovated, beds could have been more comfortable, just a regular mattress was on our king. Front desk staff lacked a lot to hope for in the area of hospitality. Location is beyond convenient. Walking distance to pretty much everywhere.

The rooms looked newly remodeled so they were clean and comfortable. The location was perfect. If you have young kids that want to splash in the river stay on the first floor if possible. The balcony door is within feet of the water. It was an extra bonus that this place had a pool. The location is right in the... More

We wanted to stay at a hotel on Main Street so we could walk, and where we had access to the river. The location is good, and we could go right out our door to swim in the river. However, this hotel offers smoking rooms and does allow pets. Our room appeared clean, but had a horrible smell (Not sure... More

We stayed here for our first simply because it was finally available. We loved listening to the sound of the river right off our deck. It is right in town to make exploring all the shops in Helen even easier. I would go back again for sure.

Wonderful, clean, enjoyable place to stay at the Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center at 33 Munich Street in Helen, Ga. Can walk to all the shops, free parking, too. Friendly staff. We stay here every time we go to Helen! Wish we were there now! We love to sit on the balcony and watch the tubers float down the... More

My family of 7 visited Helen, GA during its annual Chrstkindlmkt. While it's not Europe, it was a quaint little town, offering several fun things to do, with great food. You won't regret the trip. The Helendorf was clean, central to town, and provided the basic amenities we needed. It is situated at the river, which offers a nice view... More

Our room was right on the river on the third floor. The view was beautiful,but very noisy. We also found that quiet time is not enforced on the premises which is an issue when travelling with small children. There were people partying right outside our room until well after midnight. The balcony furniture was plastic and left a lot to... More

The Helendorf Hotel is an older hotel built in the 1970's. The rooms have recently been renovated. We found our suite to be large, very clean and accommodating with a small oven, refrigerator and microwave. There was also a table with chairs for extra seating and dining. We had a 3rd floor room with a balcony overlooking the Chattahoochie river... More
