We enjoyed our stay at the Helendorf. Yes, it's an older hotel, but in a great location. Room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking the river. We had a standard room but the other couple we traveled with had a suite, and the next time we visit we'll spring for the suite...very nice! Easy walking distance to restaurants,... More

If you're going to stay in Helen you need to stay at the Helendorf! Centrally located and nice quiet rooms. Had a great stay!! It's within walking distance of everything. Maybe a little more expensive but worth it for sure. Prosit!!

This hotel was pretty much just as I remember it from my childhood, quaint and a little kitschy in a fun way. The room was clean and comfy. I really enjoyed bringing my kids to Helen for the first time and staying here.

The positive about this hotel is great location. We booked a patio room that was right on the pretty River. Our room wasn't that clean and smelled very old and musty. They really need to invest in new carpet and better cleaning to get on top of that. When we checked in we weren't given info such as there was... More

Stayed here for the opening of Octoberfest. The room was spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the river. We had 2 comfortable queen beds, a large flat screen television and even an extra sink in an alcove apart from the bathroom.It was a very easy walk to the main street shops and restaurants.

Helendorf was perfectly located in the heart of things to do in Helen! The staff was helpful and super nice. Rooms were not luxurious, but very clean. Parking was in a tight space, but like I mentioned before, it was in walking distance of the eateries, shops and things to do

My son and I were walking the Appalachian Trail and my wife wanted to be close by with our dog. She wanted to stay at a fun place, so with a little research I found this inn. Helen is a German recreation town in the mountains of north Georgia. The Helendorf provided us a very large room probably double the... More

We have stayed at the Helendorf several times. We have always had a great experience. My husband said the bed was lumpy this time but I didn't find that myself. It is a good location in Helen since so much is within walking distance.

We enjoyed a riverfront room for the Labor Day weekend. The hotel is clean and the staff is really helpful. The property is a perfect central location to walk to town for shopping or eating. We rode our bikes on the back roads from the Helendorf to the Helen WaterPark. Breakfast is just enough to get you started for the... More
