My reception here was cold and uninviting. I arrived 2 hours earlier than the 4 p.m. check-in with a prepaid reservation. I was told to come back at 4 p.m. I asked where I could wait until then (no car) and was told to wait outside under some trees. It was 90+ degrees. In all of my travels I don't... More

Dear Guest, I appreciate your comments. I’m very sorry we could not accommodate your request for early check-in. We simple will not provide a room to a guest that hasn’t been cleaned properly. I also apologize that no better waiting area was available to you. We take pride in providing a great guest experience, and I understand how this experience... More

I got married on a Saturday and we decided to go to Helen for a night for our honeymoon. We stayed here at the Econo Lodge and were highly impressed. We were late getting in because of the wedding. It was around 10:30 that night. Even though it was late the staff was still more than welcoming. Kirby actually had... More

My fiance and I stayed here while we were in Helen. It's very affordable and is fairly close by to all of the attractions of Helen. It is literally next door to the water park, and a short walk away from the two main tubing companies. Assuming you are willing, it is entirely possible to walk to everything else. Bigg... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Helen Econo Lodge. It is an inexpensive motel, a place to sleep. But it was also clean, comfortable and convenient for what we wanted to do in and around Helen. Pool was a nice place to relax after a day out.

The room was clean and the shower worked fine. The TV was an old Zenith, but we weren't there for the TV anyway. The location is on the far end of the town, but close to the water park. As with all of the hotels in town, it is possible to walk into town. We did have to come back... More

The online reservation had been entered for a smoking room but when I asked the manager to change it, he did with no problem. The room was clean. The sheets were clean. The bathroom was clean.
