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...

I accidentally booked a normal 2 bed room with a balcony. I meant to book a suite with the fireplace etc. Now here's the problem... they only had one of the giant suites left so I was going to switch out for that (went from $125 to $190 a night). Then they said I couldn't have my kids in that... More

If you are going to Helen, GA for the Oktoberfest, I would suggest staying where everything is close. This hotel is within walking distance to the grocery store (Betty's), liquor store, restaurants, shops, main drag and the main attraction....FESTHALL! This hotel has the best location to all the attractions. Of course, there is a complimentary breakfast and free wifi. The... More

Our family of 5 stayed at the Helendorf Inn and Conference Center for two nights. We found out about this inn via Groupon. We received a very affordable rate, and we built a mini-vacation around the hotel. Our room had a balcony and river view that was awesome. The room was newly renovated...pretty colors, clean carpet, updated bathroom. The inn... More

The exterior of hotel is looking old- along with lobby, halls and elevator. But room was very nice and clean. River view and balcony were great! Check in ladies were nice but not friendly. Great location- town is right beside hotel so easy to walk. Bodensee is across street which is a great place to eat!!

A charming hotel that reminded me so much of the quaint German inns I have stayed in. Loved it and can't wait to go back! Our room had a small Christmas tree, the furniture looked as if it came just from Bavaria. Just perfect!

I purchased this trip through Groupon for my husband and me and my in-laws ended up coming along. Lisa greeted us in the lobby for check-in and she was very sweet. My husband and I had a riverfront balcony room on the 4th floor and my in-laws had a room a few doors down but not on the river. The... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. The room is updated and roomy just like the pictures. The bathroom was great and the balcony was lovely. Even though it was a bit chilly we kept the door cracked and could hear the river all night. It was so relaxing. They even had a little breakfast in the morning. The only downside... More
