Great location, very nice people at the desk, and the rooms are clean and fine for an overnight or weekend. If you are looking for a 5 star resort or a new hotel feel this will not meet your expectations. But if you want a solid place that you can feel comfortable for the night with a great location in...

Our stay at Helendorf River Inn was fantastic! The staff were excellent in accommodating our needs. They were so nice and patient in showing us the difference in a standard room versus a suite. They made sure that they placed us in close proximity of the elevator and handicap parking. We stayed in one of the suites on the second... More

We stayed here our last visit to Helen for my birthday, so they were our first choice when we decided to visit. As before, they made our stay very pleasant. We stayed in their large river suite, and while the room carries the rustic charm and beauty of the hotel, it had all the modern amenities one could ask for.... More

Great location, nice front desk staff but dirty rooms, cookies and toothpicks on carpet, hair in shower wall, dirty balcony and malfunctioning remote. Also no tissues. I addressed these issues at check out, hope they improve their services because this hotel could be a gold mine!

I chose this hotel due to its location. I wanted to park my car and be able to walk everywhere. My daughter and I stayed here three days and two nights during spring break. I chose a balcony room on the second floor. I loved sitting outside and just watch and listen to the the river flowing. The actual room... More

The Helendorf has riverfront balcony and patio rooms right in the heart of town on the Chatahoochee river. It's location is probably one of its best attributes. Our room was a balcony riverfront and had a newly remodeled bathroom. The furniture was probably the original but it was in very good condition, had an old Bavaria look to it, and... More

Quick efficient check ins. Rooms were clean and functional. Bathroom hardware has been updated so it looks nice despite it being an older hotel. Directly in the heart of downtown within walking distance to everything you'd want to see. Complimentary parking on hotel grounds. Highly rated German Restaurant with excellent food directly across the street and located with the river... More

We always stay at this hotel. We always get the patio room when available. On this trip all we could get was a smoking, river balcony room. I told the office staff about my asthma and when the patio room became available they held it for me. This is not isolated this staff is always like this! They bend over... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Helendorf, for the purposes of a memorial service, for a friend's mother. The memorial service was held on the patio of the hotel, and I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. Not only was the staff very helpful and accommodating regarding the memorial service, but they were able to... More
