My husband and I booked on a whim for a weekend getaway and were so pleasantly surprised to find the Heidi Motel. It's a perfect location with a friendly and helpful staff. We even made friends with our neighbors. The Heidi Motel really made our trip memorable.

This is the first review of a hotel that I ever remember writing but feel that it is needed. Had booked for a family ladies night out in July but due to death and a surgery in the family I had to cancel the two rooms. Staff was very understanding and obliging. Rescheduled and had a reservation for Oct. however... More

I am sorry you had this experience with us. I did call you once I seen that one of my employees had put you up stairs when you requested a down stairs room, due to being in a wheel chair. Due to the high demand for rooms that date at that time I was unable to move people upstairs to... More

Stayed at the Heidi and check in staff was very friendly. We had a nice, clean, comfortable room at a great price and location. The only reason that I did not give it five "circles" is because we were woken at 7:30am to very noisy roofing work right above our room. It would have been nice of the check-in staff... More

Veteran friendly, Biker friendly, pet friendly, great service and a great location. Good folks. Comfortable beds. Our room had a fire place, little frig, and a microwave. If we needed anything, all we needed to do is ask.

They were great. The king room with heart shaped jacuzzi was simply perfect. We were planning our next trip there before we ever left!! We will definately be back soon. The room was huge and well worth the money. We will recomend it to everyone

We planned on visiting Dahlonega, but many restaurants were closed on Tuesdays. So, we decided to visit Helen. Hampton Inn was booked as well as Black Forest B&B - places we have stayed at before. Someone had told us about Heidi Motel, so we gave it a try. We had a choice of a room in the windmill or a... More

Let me first say that the manager/owner that we delt with was extremely helpful and nice. This is definetely a dated hotel. The curtains were translucent and furniture mismatched. The mattress was a very inexpensive spring mattress that left our backs aching by morning. We booked for a family of 4. The room was said to have a king bed... More

This hotel is super cute and we were greeted by Michael who works in the office. He was nice and welcoming and accommodated to our every need. The room we had was the King jacuzzi suite and it was perfect spacious and clean. I would recommend this hotel location was great too!

It is a small motel. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The owner/manager was very pleasant, willing to help us out with places to go and eat. The location was perfect for us-across the street from a small store but was at the end of the busy tourist area. Also very close to good hiking trails.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Heidi motel is located in down town and is one of the most Photographed building in Helen, GA and is one of the landmarks to the town and also are currently the only Motel in this area that you can actually stay in a windmill. We do not do a Breakfast due to the fact that we are across from Bettys country store and 2 buildings down from Hoffers Bakery which we recommend to all our guest to go for a great German breakfast and lunch. We have no pool due to the fact that we are so close to the river and that there are 2 water parks in town. We are American owned and operated and live on site. We work very hard to make your stay great and really appreciate your business. Thanks Chad Jackson ... more   less
