I went to Helen with a friend for him to experience for the first time. We were in the city later than expected and decided to stay over night. This was the only hotel available. Reservation was sent to the business email and the guy at the desk did not have access to the email, so we had to call... More

Not the best hotel in town! Service from the guy in the front desk was great but the hotel it self needs a major renovation! The pool is not open and I don't think they are going to get it together anytime soon! The room was clean but the carpet was really old! So if you just need a place... More

This poor place is very run down. The pool had no water, area around it was dirty, with broken lounge chairs and the like. Our room was missing furniture and overall damp, so much so that you didn't want to put anything down on the floor unless it was a shoe. An event was in town so there were no... More

Let me start off by saying that my wife and I are fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit. We are not by any stretch "hotel snobs". We typically stay at budget type hotels and all we really expect is a safe property with clean rooms, hot water and a TV that works. We had a group of... More

Room 109. The Price was very good. I thought the room was nice, clean , no bugs. The young lady at the desk was very nice. I would stay here again. And my pizza from Papas Pizza was very good. I had the deluxe.

My wife and I stayed st Days Inn three nights around New Years. Missing furniture, 19 inch TV, run down looking property, hotel manager told us no extra pillows because of being booked up (we were one of two rooms on backside), not checkout after 11:30 because of other reservations. I seriously doubt that.
