We visited Riverbend Motel & Cabin for our 5 yr Anniversary. Let me say how friendly the front desk was. Mark, I believe that's his name was more than helpful. He gave us so much hospitality and information. He was very courteous. He said if we were going into town to leave car parked to save from paying for parking.... More

In the middle of Helen right on the river! Walking distance from everything you need! Great rates! Great service! Very clean! We have stayed here several times over the years and love it! Mark is the best when it comes to customer service. See you again in October 2014!

We have stayed here several times and always are very happy with the service and cleanliness. Location is beautiful right on the bend of the river. It's very short walk to down town Main Street. We were also very happy of how pet friendly this hotel is.

The owner is very nice and helpful. The location is great. The rooms are very quiet. The price is good. The rooms are dated and need some maintenance like the floor in the bathroom. ( room # 119 ) The only thing I found that was really beyond acceptable was the lack of housekeeping. We looked in the room when... More

Great location, very close to everything you need in town. It's an older place, but they have updated, and the owner went out of his way to make us happy and comfortable. Room was very clean. Owner even called me after checking out when they found that I had left something behind, to see if I was still in town... More

Owner, Mark was more than accommodating to us. We were traveling on a motorcycle and needed to park out of the rain. Mark have us a special covered parking spot. We moved from the Helendorf because they were rude about accommodating us. The rooms are beautiful. The cabin is nice and spacious. The linens are so cozy and soft. It... More

Rooms were very nice and clean and bed was very comfortable! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very convenient location, downtown is located two blocks, so you don't need to drive or pay for parking.
