By far the best place in Helen to stay. Perfect downtown location and nice amenities! I will definitely be staying here several times a year for short weekend get-aways. I have told all my friends and family about this awesome place to go with their loved ones!!

What a lovely place with very kind people. Not only are the rooms clean and cozy, you can hear the slight, peaceful roar of the Chattahoochee River while out on your private balcony. My husband and I enjoyed our time together on the river. We also had 3 children with us and they were wonderfully accommodating in regards to children.... More

Stayed this weekend. Room was clean, check in a breeze! Location is unbeatable! You can shop and tour the town and return to the Castle Inn to relax with ease. You can sit on the balcony and people watch and enjoy aromatherapy of the various restaurants!

I spent one night here during the Oktoberfest and it was great; although I did not spend much time in my room. There is so much to see and do in Helen GA during Oktoberfest and the Castle inn is right in the heart of it all (and walking distance as well). The inn, like most of Helen, has a... More

We stayed one night at the Castle Inn and had an awesome time! Our room was spacious, clean, and had been recently redecorated. Debbie, the owner, was very gracious and wanted to make sure that our visit was great. I highly recommend the Castle Inn to anyone visiting Helen, GA.

The room was clean but that is about all I can say for room 206. I thought every place had a mini fridge in the room these days. This place doesn't. The ice maker is severely undersized for the amount of rooms and it stays empty nearly the whole time. You have to climb up 2 flights of stairs with... More

From the moment we booked our reservation until check out our stay was wonderful. The staff/housekeeping was excellent. Had on minor problem with air conditioning and it was fixed to OUR satisfaction immediately. The room was clean and the view was great. In room 210 there is no dresser to put clothing and I'm sure this will be corrected if... More

The room had a terrible smell. We actually walked to Betty's iga to purchase Lysol so we could stand to be in the room. The balcony overlooking the river was nice, but the sliding glass door did not slide well or lock properly. Parking was a pain. The carpet was in a horrible state, sink would fill with water and...

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
