We ave stayed in this motel several times while on vacation in Helen, i've lost count exactly how many. This is a budget motel, you aren't living in luxury at this motel. During the summer you can get rooms for around 45 dollars per night, which is nothing compared to other places. The rooms we have stayed in have been... More

Stayed 1 night here over the holidays. Checked in around 4pm and rooms were not ready. Half the cleaning service did not show up. I booked a non-smoking room but was given a smoking room. Room had only 1 towel and had smoke burns on both chairs. Trash was behind the entry door and the mirror was off the wall.... More

My sister and I traveled here on a short trip for Halloween 2014. I can't say a lot about actual service since our stay was only 2 nights and we were gone all day. What I can say is the tub stopped up so I had to stand in dirty water while showering which is always fun. Also the sheets... More

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
