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

We were coming to the area for a quick overnight trip and were looking for an inexpensive/cheap hotel where we would arrive about 10 pm and leave at breakfast time and this fit the bill. 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

Best Rates in town. We called several motels in helen ga and this one had the best price. When we arrived Vanetia and Angie were the two front desk clerks, they were very nice and helpful. When we got to the room its was clean thanks to the house keepers (Tonya and Red). The swimming pool was very clean and... 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
