This is the ONLY place for me to stay in when I visit Helen 3 times a year for much needed fun in the middle (heart) of the city and right on the river too! Shops, restaurants, tubing, a park, dancing & everything is right at your fingertips!

The hotel is on the second floor and the views are awesome. We were in the heart of Helen! The traffic is really a nightmare on the weekends but apparently the locals are used to it. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. We were in room 208 and personally it's the best view. You have a balcony overlooking... More

We stayed at Castle Inn for 2 days during our trip to Helen, GA. Castle Inn is located towards the edge of downtown close to the small shops. It is also directly above the Troll tavern so you do not have to go far for food. Our view was great, room was clean, and well kept. The only complaint is... More

Our stay was perfect. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They recently updated the rooms with new furniture and mini fridges. View from the patio was great for people watchers. We will be back next summer for sure!

No elevator, so we had to lug all of our luggage up two flights of steep stairs. The rooms were outdated and over priced. We had several rooms among the group of us and the sheets in each room were stained (no idea what was on them). The bed was not comfortable. The manager was not friendly and the parking... More

Thanks for letting us know you were disappointed with your stay. I am the Manager and was not present the day of your stay. I would have sent housekeeping to your room to change your sheets if I had known of the problem. I have talked to my staff to make sure this dose not occur again. There are stairs... More

Wonderful place and the perfect location. Checked in at the last minute by phone and it was so easy and Debbie is the most kind person. She was helpful in every way. I have stayed here before but it had been a while. The only place I plan to ever stay. Can't wait until October Fest!!!!

Came here with my significant other, decided to stay over and after checking all the rates, cattle in had the best deal. I recommend the suit over v looking the river.

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
