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

Most importantly the bed sheets were clean and the air conditioner worked great. I was just a little disappointed in the decor. The wallpaper was peeling in several places and some of it was even torn off. I guess for the prices they charged I just expected more, especially from a Days Inn hotel. The frint desk person was busy... More

We came into Helen on a Sat. afternoon for one night. We didn't have reservations and didn't want to spend all of our time looking for a hotel. The clerk at the front counter was nice, but overloaded with phone calls, which took precedence over a paying customer standing in front of him who needed two rooms. After about 5... More

Don't know Marty personally but this man loves the city of Helen! Should be an ambassador for the town! He is so helpful. He will give you maps, highlight what,when, and where of things to do! The hotel is a good price. The rooms are worth a 2 or 3 day trip. I didnt go to stay in my hotel... More

I was very happy with my stay at Helen Days Inn , the staff was curtious & helpful. The room was clean. I could tell that the sheets were clean because of the fresh smell. I don't understand the negativity, this is a wonderful place to stay. R.GOODSON of Gainesville,GA

Employees were courteous enough. The room was in danger of electrical fire. All sockets in wall to plug in necessities were falling out of wall. The electrical boxes literally would fall out of the wall if you tried to use them. Bed clothing old and wore out. This was one unbelievable event for a Days Inn.
