Stayed overnight in Helen Georgia on our way home from the Smokies. The hotel has gone through an extensive remodeling and is very clean and the employees are very accommodating. The room was large and the beds were very comfortable. They serve a hot breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits, and all of the normal continental breakfast fare. The WIFI... More

The motel is very professionally managed. The breakfast was great, which our group of 26 leisurely enjoyed. We stayed two nights at this hotel. I would stay here again. Perfect location - within walking distance for shopping, dining and tubing down The Chattahoochee River .The staff even let us borrow sticks needed to maneuver down the river

we arrived in Helen GA not knowing it was the start of Octoberfest. Found the reservation through tripadvisor site which by the way is a fast easy way to make reservations. A little hesitant after reading some of the reviews. We found this hotel to have large rooms, tastefully redone, comfortable beds and bedding, and walking distance to town. It... More

About Best Western, a hotel small but quite comfortable. Nice soft beds and pillows, and it's good if you're staying for the night. Nice free breakfast with a large selection of food. Personal thanks to Alexander for his help with the table (and don't worry for his English) and Jacob, Jacob was ready to help with any question. I don't... More

We had a decidedly mixed experience at this hotel. First, the positives: - The hotel has been renovated and is in good condition. - The staff are very nice and try to be helpful. - The room was well-appointed and clean. - The location is good - only a short walk from downtown Helen. - The breakfast was actually pretty...

The quality of furnishings and exterior appearance of this Best Western falls short of many that I have visited in the western US. This hotel has the interior appearance of a typical 2 star facility like Days Inn, Econo Lodge, or Super 8...outdated old furniture, small bathroom, minor stains, exterior doors. The best attribute is its proximity to the Festhalle.

Best Western Hotels are my comfort home away from home! Personnel are well trained! Friendliness of staff gives me a secure feeling when I travel alone!I find the rates much better than other hotels. The breakfasts are good hours and tasty!

The hotel is clean, beds are fine etc. The staff needs to be trained more, at least the ones we had contact with. It was sad that every question about Helen ( a resort town) that we asked the desk clerk he was unable to answer. Instead of getting advise on where to go and what to see we were... More

I thought that the price (around $125.00 a night) was steep considering this is a dated older Inn. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just a basic room. Nothing spectacular. The only good thing I can say about it is it's close proximity to the Helen square.
