We came here for a business trip during Ocktoberfest 2014. We had a confirmed reservation, and we arrived a little before 12 pm local time. We wanted to take care of the registration process for our room, but not to actually occupy the room. The staff at the front desk told us that we could not even register for our... More

I paid $138.00 for 1 night stat. The room was terribly nasty. Sheets had stains on them. The pillows were so flat it felt like nothing was under your head at all. The bathroom had not been cleaned there was stains on toilet and in tub. The refrigerator didn't work. The telephone didn't work so we could call front desk.... More

the rooms are very dirty and of very poor quality. The sheets and linen have hols. I had to move to three different rooms due to poor room quality. After my first two rooms on the first floor I spoke with one of the room attendants Naomi who suggested moving to a higher floor because the rooms were cleaned better.... More

The customer service was good, breakfast was disappointing to say the least. Toilet rocked, electrical outlets didn't work. Would not recommend this site to anyone. Carpet needed cleaning. I wore socks in the room, where absolutely filthy upon return home.

Location of hotel was great. Beds were comfortable. Room lacked towels and lots of dead bugs in room. Probably would not stay at this hotel again. Lots of night time noise, due to others having party.

I'm so reluctant to write a negative review... But here goes. On the plus side, for the price we paid, it was okay. The room was dirty, broken lipstick in the sink, the table and counters were not wiped down. The little hand lotion bottle was old I think, the lotion inside was a watery concoction filled with lumps &... More

I only stayed one night with my buddy after hiking on the appalachian trail. The hotel was clean but basic. AC worked very well in the room but it was loud. Honestly though, we only paid $50 for the night, and at that price, the room was stellar. Location is not in downtown, but is walkable. Again, judging that the... More

I have been to Helen, Georgia previously and spent $70.00 more on another place before. I was able to get this on September 12 and 13th for $49.00 night advanced purchase. The rooms were clean, and the area was quiet. If you are a smoker, get a non -smoking room and smoke outside. The smokers rooms are smelly. Shop around... More

This is by far one of the worst places I've stayed in a very long time. The sheets were dirty and a urine stain was found on one of them that was on the top sheet and bottom sheet and in the exact same place! This tells me the bed wasn't changed from the last guest who had an accident!... More

We booked through Choice, and normally we are never disappointed but this property is a HUGE disappointment. Showed up around 4, we booked two rooms, the first room we arrived at was still dirty, the other had a broken toilet. We then moved rooms. There was mold EVERYWHERE, sheets were stained, wallpaper falling down, showers were molded beyond belief, and... More
