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 The room was extremely outdated, especially the bathroom, it was not clean.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

The room smelled funny the bed was extremely un comfortable and the shower had no hot water and when I called the front desk they didn't care never! Stay! Here!!! The attendant never even sent someone to look at the hot water to try to fix it

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

We came up to Helen for the Octoberfest Celebration. Got a room ($134.00 ) cause we both were going to indulge in lots of German beer. I highly recommend kicking in some extra bucks and staying somewhere else. Yes, I read the previous reviews but all the other hotels were supposedly booked full. When we walked around the town, many... More

Traveling thru Helen and decided to stay overnight as it was later in the afternoon and another 2 hour drive home. Price seemed reasonable so we checked in. Filthy to say the least. Bathroom tub with mold and mildew and yuck! Some kind of flies were everywhere in bathroom. Blankets had dirt on them. Nightstand lamps had no knob to... More

We were walk-ins and stayed overnight. The first room was not clean. There was dried muck on the bedside table and on the bathroom vanity. The vanity mirror was splashed with waterspots. The hot water in the bathtub was dripping and you couldn't turn it off. We were given a riverside room which we requested but the smell of cleaning(?)... More

Had a recent bike rally in Helen we filled up 31 room here and it was great. staff very helpful with anything we needed. The ones that want to go tubing on the river that passes right by the hotel just had to tell the front desk and a bus picked them up and dropped them off after the trip... More

This hotel was the worst experience of my life. I have never stayed somewhere that was so incredibly dirty. The first room we were put in was covered in black mold. We asked the lady at the front to move us to another room. The next room looked much nicer, but upon closer inspection, we found that everything was covered... More

Probably not.... Hotel is very old and ran down. We stayed one night in a room and then the toilet broke would not flush. They moved us to another room, it had not been cleaned in a long time. There was dirt all over the floor and everywhere. The toilet seat was broke in this room and would pinch you... More
