The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. Near to the river and near to town. All within walking distance. Check in and out was good and service was good. Wish for a little more in the breakfast. Enjoyed sitting in swings and seeing the tubers.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on a mini vacation. We were supposed to stay another night but my husband got sick so we had to check out a day earlier. The owner was so courteous and refunded us a night stay! The rooms are clean and just beautifully remodeled. Staying by the river was also a... More

Great place to stay. Walk to town and dinner every night! Friendly staff and clean rooms. Excellent trout fishing in the stream that runs by the property. We plan to be back a lot more!!! We've stayed in both the motel and cabins and both are very neat and clean

This was such a beautiful hotel in such a cute town! Being from busy Chicago it was nice to escape to Helen. The manager was wonderful- helped me plan my entire day! The hotel is so close to the river and the town center. The rooms are beautiful as well. I couldn't ask for more. Can't wait to stay again!

While the rooms are small, the queen beds are very comfortable. It is a typical, older but updated, hotel. The staff could not be more helpful. The location could not be any better. One block from the heart of town so we walk to everything. A huge property line on the river with plenty of room to play in the... More

We have stayed in Helen quiet a few times. We went down this street & found this motel. When I opened the door to the room, It was breathtaking, just like a vintage room, or a nice room at home. I was so relaxed here. The view of the river was awesome. You can sit outside in a swing by... More

We had a great time with adjoining rooms. Rooms were very nice. Very easy check in. Loved sitting on the swing set watching the river go by with the kids. Mark gave us great recommendations for dinner and breakfast, went above and beyond service. Would come back anytime!
