The website for the hotel gave us the best price ($52 for king room, non-refundable). We arrived when anticipated and had no problems checking in... More

Due to the Bike Rally, all other Hotels where booked, so my husband and I decided to give this one a shot. Bad mistake. The room was old and shabby. At first sight it looked clean at least, until we pulled off the bedspread. Our bed was clearly not changed before we checked in and had no towels in the... More

The Econo Lodge in Helen, Ga had the cleanest room I have ever been it. It was so fresh and inviting. The staff was extra friendly and answered all our questions about what to do and where to eat. The pool was small but nice and clean. The breakfast (and coffee) was a good way to start the day. The... More

First of all I reserved 4 rooms at what I thought was 119 per night which was really 149.99. I decided not to let that ruin the weekend plans with the family only to find out the nightly rate ended up being 172 per room making this the most expensive one night stay I have ever had. We were given... More

My wife and I just stayed at this hotel (Wed, Thurs, and Fri). The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was more then adequate. We will be staying here again in October. Can't beat it for the price.

Stayed two nights in July. Pool had not been cleaned all week nor the circulator running. Globs of hair, dirt, and bugs in it. The breakfast was a joke. The juices were watered down, coffee was horrible, the food was a waste. The room was clean but had flyes and gnats flying around. The beds were wore out. They only... More
