“Pool too COLD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Called to check if pool was heated and told it was warm and cozy.It was near freezing ,yes it was heated because steam coming off the water but just enough to keep it from freezing.Heater is way too small or turned way down.Rest of the place was ok breakfast was virtually non exesistant and the beds were well worn but comfortable and room was ok.Good value for under $60 winter rates.

I loved my stay here, the lady that checked me in was so sweet, helpful, and down to earth. It was a great deal. The room was very clean, and nice. I am definitely staying here everytime I come to Helen, which may very well be very soon.

Room Tip: Rooms above the office are very private.

1. Tried to charge more at desk than what we booked online
2. Very uncomfortable mattresses & pillows
3. Free Wifi was non-existent except in the office
4. We walked into a wide-open room at 7 p.m.,and frantically think our room had been broken into. Before we could call anyone, the maid walks in. At 7 p.m., after leaving our room WIDE OPEN.

In the future, I'll pay a little more to get the rates I book online, have a more comfortable room, actually have wifi that I can use in my room, and not have a heart attack when maid service shows up well after normal operating hours.

This hotel is located a short distance from the main shopping area plus is close fast food Wendy's and the huddle house if you need something quick. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to help you. The heated pool is nice but walking back to your room might make you a little cold since the pool doesn't attach to the main building. The complimentary breakfast has cereal, oatmeal, yogurt and fruits. The office is open 24 hrs for your convenience plus has coffee all the time. The only complaint I have is the rooms need to be updated.

We were staying only 1 night to ring in 2013. Great location for walking downtown. This hotel needs some upgrading but is ok for overnight. Unfortunately we had to stay in a smoking room and there was ashes left on some of the towels in the bathroom. Don't worry, before we left I put all towels in the floor so they would have to put clean ones in. On a more positive note...front desk attendant was VERY friendly. We will try again sometime.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We stayed here during Labor Day and the hotel was actually very nice.
The staff was great, the room was clean except the carpet was dirty. The beds were also hard, but I slept okay.

They advertise their pool being heated. Sadly the pool was freezing cold. The breakfast was more like breakfast out of a vending machine, we packaged danishes, so that definitely tells you that the stuff is very unhealthy. Thankfully, if you don't like the breakfast there is a Huddle House next door.

The only other positive I can find about this place was that it is close to everything so you don't have to use your car, you can just walk to everything.

As for the hotel. If it's only for one night than I will stay here again; longer than one night, probably not.

Room Tip: Don't stay here for the pool.
