The hotel staff member was great. He helped us identify a great local German restaurant for dinner and then a coffee shop for breakfast. The hotel is clean, quiet, and conveniently located close to downtown Helen. Additionally, you can park for free at the hotel and avoid the annoying $3-$5 parking fees throughout Helen. If I would plan another trip... More

This cabin was very cute! There's a fire pit for family fun or a girls weekend away! And right on the river hearing the water roll and watching the tubers, sitting on the wood swings provided out back at the river was very relaxing. The cabin was very welcoming and walking distance to everything in town. I love how nice... More

Though the exterior looked dated, we were pleasantly surprised at the updated rooms- wow! Like a hotel interior- nice hotel! The motel is right on the river and you can walk down and let your kids skip stones while you swing on the bench swings. Great for early morning meditation too. Friendly staff offered lots of in the area recommendations... More

First off for the few negative posters that are use to a Wyndham property when you rent these rooms/cabins you are paying to literally be staying the Chattahoochee river. Also, when you leave the front of the property you walk right into the middle of town! The cottages are a bit dated so yes the door trim might not match... More

Could not ask for a better welcome! Room was very clean and bed slept great. Floor looked new and well kept. Mark was very informative and helpful and cared about if everything was good. The view of the river was awesome and very relaxing. We will definitely be back!

We just returned from a mini-vacation in Helen where my wife and I and stayed 3 nights at the Riverbend. The rooms were clean and well kept. The facility is in a convenient location, being only a short walk from downtown Helen and all the shops and restaurants. I can't say enough about the staff, especially Mark, the hotel manager....
