Our church stayed here this weekend for our marriage retreat (not the same one as kylulu22 talked about on 4/11/15). The hotel was nice, quick check in with our welcome packet & keys ready for us. The lobby is really interesting. In a part of it they sell homemade items from local crafters, including some great knives made by the... More

The exterior of the hotel could use a little TLC and updating. Aside from that, I have only good things to say about the hotel. Check in and out were quick and smooth, the staff was friendly and helpful, and, most importantly, the room was extremely clean! I am very picky about the cleanliness of any hotel room I stay...

We just had our church's couple's Retreat this past three days at the Best Western in Helen, Ga. The manager, Carol, did everything she could to help us make it a success. The rooms were clean. The conference room was perfect. All the staff were very kind and helpful!

Just a word about the town (city? ) of Helen. I did not know this was a resort totally built as a replica of a Black Forest, Germany town. Over the top for me why not make your own identity? The Best Western Plus is on the main street with a black Forest façade but just an oblong standard motel... More

The hotel is avg, but no WiFi and hot breakfast bar. We called first night upon arrival about WiFi. They said they would check into. Still no WiFi two nights later. Hot breakfast bar wasnt working either and were given vouchers to use at The Huddle House. We were very disappointed overall. The lady at the front desk was friendly.... More

A great bar and grill right next door had excellant food...called "Big Daddy's". Because it wass the off season they did... More

A broken refrigerator and dirty towels on the bathroom floor greeted us. I should have left immediately. find a different place to stay. the staff did not clean rooms well, and the internet and phone did not work. the hotel needs a total make-over. very dirty , keep your shoes on.

I went to Helen for my birthday. We saved on the hotel. It was very clean and the front desk clerk was very accomidating. We did have a few problems. One of the beds supporting beams which were made of plywood apparently gave way when my husband was playing with it. We explained what happened and even offered to pay... More

My husband and I are thru hiking the Appalachian Trail. Carol, from the Best Western hotel, picked us up at Unicoi Gap and what a wonderful surprise after that! The town is charming and friendly and we checked into a very nice, clean and comfortable room at an awesome rate. We had a full hot breakfast and a very attentive... More
