We enjoyed our after-Christmas weekend at Riverbend in every way- the hotel manager was very helpful and friendly, and gave us good dining and sight-seeing recommendations for the area. The hotel was clean and comfortable, as well as being located in walking distance to all Helen attractions. Will definitely stay there again

All support staff was awesome also. The property still looks great, and it being right on the Chattahoochie River. The towns Christmas lights and decorations was also awesome. The only... More

Mark and his staff were wonderful! We decided to spend Christmas away from home this year and couldn't have picked a better place. The fact that they allow dogs was the major reason we chose Riverbend and once we arrived, we were treated like family. Riverbend is close to all that Helen has to offer. You can walk to just...

My partner and I had a wonderful stay in our riverfront cabin, sitting around the fireplace with the dogs was defiantly fabulous way to spend Christmas Eve. Location was perfect and can't wait come back in the summer. Barbara Dimsdale (Jet)

My wife and I stayed here on the way to Tennessee. The manager Mark was so helpful and the room was very clean. I understand they are remodeling the rooms starting the first of the year. The place is so close to the shops. Can't wait til we stay there again.

Stayed in the cabins. Cabin had a great view of the river and also had a jacuzzi. I slept on a comfy futon (There is also a big bed upstairs. This unit would be perfect for a couple). Built a big fire outside by the river one evening. The downtown Gelen area is right there to explore, though you can... More

My boyfriend and I decided to get away for my birthday this year. Since we couldn’t get too much time off we chose to visit Helen for two days. The Riverbend motel and Cabins was the perfect place. It was anything fancy, but it was perfect and cozy for our little family. We brought along our dog and she was... More

We recently spent the night in Helen and stayed at the Riverbend. The room was clean and the service was great. The location was excellent. We went to see the small town and the Christmas parade. I thought the price was a little too much but overall it was a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to returning and renting one... More

The room was neat and clean but the floors were unlevel and because there was no carpet, it was a cold walk to the bathroom. we have stayed in worse hotels but we definitely have stayed in better. Access to the room from the parking lot was great.
