Really nice manager, very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and clean (except for carpet) with comfortable bed but did hear from others in our group who did not have a good recommendation, smaller room and not so clean, stained towels, sheets etc. The hotel is old and carpet really needs replacing. Pricey for what it is, but for... More

I just wrote a review on the restaurant at Amicalola where we never got our food. We decided to ride over to Helen, ga. to eat. We thought for sure this would not happen twice in one day. BUT...it did. We even shared our earlier experience with the server. And yet....55 minutes later NO food. We heard a lot of... More

We have once again returned to this no frills motel located directly on the chattahoochee river. Rooms were clean. Beds were decent and the service was great! So is the price. Pool is nice and the restaurant next door is the best. GERMAN... Live entertainment in the parking lot. We love the patio rooms with the grills. Sooooo fun! We... More

Agree with the musky smell from other reviewers but seemed clean at first glance. We stayed after an afternoon of tubing wore is out. Just wanted a shower and a clean bed. The sheets had stains but seemed clean. One mattress was shot. When you sat on the edge you went to the ground. The other was tolerable. Real Lights... More

I have stayed in many different types of hotels over the years. This is by far the worst place that I have ever had the displeasure of visiting! However, if you enjoy filthy rooms along with a staff who could care less about whether you are taken care of, you may want to give them a shot. I would rather... More

This hotel is an old hotel, Bavarian style building. The location of this hotel is great, right by the river, but it is poorly maintained. The outside of the hotel is dirty and messy. The room was extremely outdated, especially the bathroom, it was not clean. The room smelled of some strong cleaning product. The sheets seemed to be cleaned.... More

This was our second stay at Hofbrau. First in June and this time for Oktoberfest. The room was clean both times. The hotel is older and can use some updating, but honestly all the places in Helen are pretty comparable in that regard. Our room had a fireplace and a balcony. We did not use the fireplace either time and... More
