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

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

Stayed here during a very busy weekend & Marty at the front desk was being run ragged. He was at the front desk or checking the property at all hours. Booked a king non smoking which wasn't available. Got double non smoking. Had obviously been smoked in consistently & had a strong odor so don't use this if you are... More
