I have always wanted to stay here because it is nestled so beautifully on that hill, so I finally got to. I've read soooo many mixed reviews of this place and was pleasantly surprised. The day of our check in I called to make sure they had our reservation and they did. When we got here the man at the... More

It was terrible. Not only did the manager question us about having a reservation, she complained that she didn't have her act together since she was gone for a few days. The room was something from the 80's which wasn't the problem but it wasn't very clean. The sign on the front desk said you have 15 minutes to change... More

I had the pleasure of staying here about 6 days, and it was a nice place. I personally don't like Helen, GA, but work took me there. The owners are wonderful, it didn't get rowdy on the weekend. They also had a security guard there of a night. When I would see the owners they would always ask if everything... More

Went down for one night during Octoberfest...I know that rooms are going to be more expensive during this time, but our rooms were not even close to being worth $200/night. The rooms were dirty, malodorous, and visible stains everywhere. We had no cups, coffee pot, refrig or even a hair dryer in our room. I have never been in a... More

We booked rooms last minute to attend the Oktoberfest due to the location of the hotel. It was within walking distance to the Festhalle and downtown Helen (about a 10 minute walk). Overall the hotel was not bad for a budget hotel. Prices were high due to Oktoberfest and normally the room would not have been worth $99 but rooms... More

We made last minute reservations for two rooms so we could attend the Oktoberfest festivities in Helen on 9/28/13. The rooms prices were high due to Oktoberfest so we expected that. That said we still expected a nice room. Had a few problems at check in but they solved them pretty quickly and gave us our room. We noticed a... More

When I stayed at Americas Best Value Inn in Helen, Ga, I decided to let the duct taped wall lamp (which didn't work) go. I even let the non viewable TV go. The door jam had been kicked in at some earlier time and was patched together. But the worst part was that I was double billed and all attempts... More

This place has an odor that is nauseating. We checked out a day early, even tho we lost the money for the last night. We didn't think we could tolerate the odor another night. There are no amenities. The towels are tiny and threadbare.

Room stunk when we first got in. There were only 3 pillows on the bed and one was dirty and stunk like greasy hair. I went to get clean pillows and they were all out except for a deformed round thing. I found a huge dead spider on the floor. Not enough towels and the ones we got were small... More

Stayed here for the destination Helen bike rally. Very convenient, and had a nice stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Have stayed at this location my last four trips to Helen and have no plans of changing.
