My wife and I wanted to take a quick mid-week break in Helen. We decided to stay at The Riverbend Motel based on it's ranking in TripAdvisor; we were not disappointed. It is a rustic looking motel literally on the river's bend. The King room we had looked like it had been recently updated. The laminate wood floors looked nice,... More

We had a chalet with balcony overlooking the river. Walked into Helen several times which suited us rather than driving. Check in was smooth and we were given good dining recommendations. Enjoyed watching the tubers float by, sitting on a riverside swing

Stayed in one of the cabins on the river and it met every one of our wants. To stand on the deck over looking the river and listing to the water is a soothing experience.The cabins have been there for a long time and that is what's make them special. Yes they have some scars but the scars are made... More

We had a GREAT time. Right at the edge of the water, close to everything, clean rooms - clean bathroom. The beds are totally like sleeping on clouds very comfy. The lobby was clean and the grounds too. Very quiet and that is saying a lot since I have trouble sleeping and was out on the balcony even at midnight... More

Manager took the time to show us different rooms, views, and different bed firmness levels. Offered excellent sightseeing and dining recommendations. We found them all to be very good. River access was also excellent and very relaxing. Rooms seemed to have been fairly recently updated, however exterior cosmetics were well worn. I believe housekeeping/maintainence staff my have been under-staffed. Rates... More
