We stayed here for a wedding. We had a room with a view of the river. The A/C wasn't blowing much cold air. The staff was quick to check it and get us a fan that cooled the room nicely. We utilized the conference room for the reception. It was nice and the staff was very accommodating. The rooms were... More

The Helendorf made our stay in Helen, GA, truly memorable. It captures the spirit of this unique town with its lovely architecture, perfect location and friendly staff. We chose a balcony room overlooking the river, and I most highly recommend those accommodations. We checked in June 30th and stayed through the July 4th holiday weekend. So we enjoyed quite the...

My friends and I took a girls trip to float the river and explore Helen. We were a little disappointed in the accommodations. It was rundown and dated. I have stayed at Marriots and Hiltons for much less. I expected quaint and charming but didn't really get that.

Great location with clean well laid out accommodations. The staff are courteous and friendly. Hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Hotel is located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.

Carpet was old. Not worth what I paid. Close to downtown, about 1 block. There is an good German restaurant across the street to the east (Bodensee). Helen is a typical tourist trap, but it was still fun.

My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights. Even though my leg is in a cast, we had no problems getting to our room via elevator. The view from the balcony of the river and people tubing made it worth being on the second floor. My fiancé had to push me in a wheelchair everywhere we went, so being... More

Thank God we only booked for one night! The place was dark and dingy. In need up updates badly. AC was moderate at best! Lots of spider webs down the halls and near elevator. Not well kept at all. The pool had a greenhouse like cover over it, It was like a sweat box! For $185 river balcony I was... More

So glad we found this wonderful place. We got a room with a balcony overlooking the river and the tubers. People were having a great time all around, grilling hotdogs along the river, watching their children play. Our room had a stove, microwave, and fridge so we could have easily cooked our breakfast and chilled on the balcony, but we... More

Stayed here during a road trip just after Christmas. A nice little quiet hotel in a very unique town. All the Christmas lights where up and made the area (Helen) a really cool place to visit during the Holiday season. The hotel seems kind of older, but is very upkept! The room was kind of small, but served the purpose... More
