We stayed in the suite over the week of Thanksgiving. We had read the reviews and were a little hesitant but after speaking with the manager, she assured us things had changed. She was so right. Kara was the best. Very attentive to us and the other guests that were there. Our room was super clean, smelled good and we... More

We stayed here Oct 30-31, it was midweek, the Oktoberfest crowd had left town and honestly it looked like a ghost town now. Was charged $137 for a king bed for 2 nights, the girl that checked us in was very nice. When we walked in the room, the room smelled like it was over-deodorized, it took my breath away... More

Toilet was nasty and probably hadn't t been cleaned for a month. The room stunk, but the dollar tree had a cinnamon broom which if placed on the heater made the room smell tolerable. Hair all over the bathroom next to all of the bugs. Bathtub too repulsive to take a shower. And to top it off there was blood... More

Stayed here for Oktoberfest, which I go to every year. Reserved a king nonsmoking suite. Shower had clumps of hair in the walls and filthy in general; no fixture over bathroom lights; broken glass in the sink; trash left from pervious guest; no bath towels-you couldn't have paid me to shower there anyways; stain on the walls and ceiling above...

Here were a few of my issues: The wifi only worked in the front of the hotel. I called the front desk several times, no one ever picked up-walked to front desk, no one there. Writing on the bathroom wall in sharpie. The room was filthy with a heavy odor. The pool was green with bathroom sinks in them.

I know that most of the chain hotels in Helen are sketchy. Bad carpet, falling wallpaper etc.. But this place is horrible. I swear I don't understand how they are allowed a business license. To say the rooms were filthy is an understatement; they were indescribable. The pool is a green cesspool with old furniture stacked up in a garbage... More

Me and a few friends initially booked a reservation at the Alpine Inn for one night but they filled our reserved room before we got there. Kara at the Days Inn took care of us and hooked us up immediately in a room for a decent price. A hotel to pull through in the last minute was hard to find... More

We booked our room through Expedia. When we arrived, they had already given our room away. The manager was rude and said it wasn't his problem. Even the lobby smelled, so I'm glad we didn't stay there. The rooms were probably disgusting anyway.

This place is a standard days inn, but it's old and a little dated. Clean, yes. That's about it. For the money there are better places to stay. While not horrible there are better choices. Staff was fine. No negative issues there. Linens and towels were clean.

The hotel is independently owned is nothing you would expect from Days Inn. The desk clerk was rude. I spoke with him personally for reservations & upon arrival he informed me he didn't have any rooms available except one with a leaking toilet. He said he would "do me a favor" & repair it in about an hour. We had... More
