We stayed at the Castle Inn over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We chose the hotel based on the location and several of the reviews online but were sorely disappointed. To begin with, the rate online was not what we were charged and my husband was told the additional charge was due to the holiday. That should be stayed online... More

We loved this inn for the location in the heart of Helen! The balcony is perfect overlooking the river. The room was just OK and could really use remodeling. The carpet was very stained. The bed was comfortable and the staff is great. It would be perfect if they put mini fridges in the rooms and updated the decor. It's... More

Stayed here on 11/23/13 ... Had a great time! The hotel is on the main strip, so it's close to all the restaurants and shops! Stephanie at the front desk was very nice and helpful! The downside to the hotel is that there is no elevator. So, you have to carry your luggage to the 2nd/3rd floor. Also, you can't... More

Location is great it's right in the center of town, service was excellent everyone is super friendly, rooms are clean and have great amenities. We stayed for two nights during Oktoberfest and when I say the location can't be beat, it really can't. The balcony attached to the room is a huge plus it offers a great view of both... More

Very clean and nice place to stay! Right in the middle of Helen which made for great shopping and walking! Really loved morning coffee on the balcony! Staff was great and very polite. Enjoyed being so close to the river and watching the people tubing.

We stayed at the castle inn on Helen for one night on Labor Day weekend just because we liked the balcony over looking the city for people watching. It is really old and outdated but the location can't be beat. It is in the middle of town and we did enjoy the balcony. There was no refrigerator in our room... More

This hotel is located in a great location, you can walk to restaurants and all of the shops in the area.. The hotel is dated, the rooms are dark, however, the balcony is nice...it overlooks the river, which is nice. We had a deluxe room with double beds, no phone, flat screen tv and a very uncomfortable bed. The bed... More

This little hotel is a great bargain smack in the middle of Helen on the Chattahoochee River. We stayed here with a couple of my siblings and their spouses early in August. Two out of three of our rooms could not have been better, especially for the money. The third room had a stained carpet and a patch on the... More

I loved this place! You could not ask for a better location!!! It's right in the heart of Helen and you can walk everywhere! There's a great Resturaunt right beneath the inn. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were not overly fancy, but they were very nice, clean, and absolutely perfect for a couple and for the price. The... More

Just above the troll tavern with a balcony overlooking the river & bridge for $109 on a sat. Walk to everything! Food, shopping, fishing, liqueur store... Everything! Very clean & comfortable rooms. We'll return every year!
