Friendly, professional staff, clean, comfortable, and very convenient 9easy walking distance) to downtown Helen. However, the property is fairly old and in need of remodeling. Value is about a good as for nearby properties; however, some nearby properties are newer.

The best western plus was a pleasant surprise to say the least. We stayed in a suite with a mountain view balcony and thought it was great. The room is much bigger than a normal sized hotel room and the place was clean. The bed was very comfy and was promptly attended to each and every morning. Our towels were... More

The staff at this Best Western were extremely pleasant to work with and very friendly. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped. The pool, although small, was very clean and well taken care of. The morning breakfast was outstanding with not only the usual fare at many hotels but also sliced ham off the bone. Fresh baked chocolate chip... More

I stayed in room 215 on Aug 3. When I first opened the door, I smelled a strong musky odor. The bathroom smelled of urine. There was no soap at the sink. There were ants on the bed and desk. The T.V. had bad reception. The pool was foggy and had white stuff all around the sides and had lots... More

Convenient to all the shops and restaurants in downtown Helen, GA! We were able to walk to get gifts for our families, wine tasting, dinner, karaoke and dancing. The hotel staff was very friendly and professional!

I came for a military brats reunion, and it was an adequate stay. We were going to stay at the Holiday Inn express, but it was not completed yet. Average room, good breakfast, comfortable bed, I have stayed at much nicer places in the past six months at lower prices.

This hotel had lovely, spacious rooms, a very nice lobby, and a good breakfast. It was easy walking distance to all the in-town places I wanted to go to, and an easy drive to the rest. Highly recommended!

Although the hotel was older, it was very clean and we had a very large room. The paint and granite updated the look. The rating is average only because of the musty smell of the room. Otherwise, the breakfast was good and refreshed when needed.
