I love to visit Helen, GA and The Castle Inn is right down town in the middle of the shops. Love the fact that it is next to the river and from the room... More

This hotel is probably the best location in town....right on Main Street, next to the river. You can get a room facing the river or a room facing Main Street. We got a room facing the street since it was winter and there's not any activity on the river. The room has a balcony overlooking the street, which was nice... More

We stayed here Monday through Thursday during the 2015 Oktoberfest. We are older so a quiet room was important to us. The walls are very thick and you cannot hear people in the other rooms. We had a street-side room with a balcony overlooking the main street and only heard the traffic at night if a very large truck passed... More

Helen GA during Oktoberfest is a fun place to be and the Castle Inn is the perfect place to enjoy the sights and sounds. Castle Inn is in the middle of the action with easy access to the Festhalle, The rooms are very nice, the location on the river is great and this comes with super customer support!

The Castle Inn is a great place for Oktoberfest! ! It's our first choice! The river, the shops, the food and great atmosphere was just what we needed. We loved the German feel to our time here in the mountains. See you guys next year!
