Room had a musty odor. Our stay was pretty much as expected. Directions to local restaurant could have been more explicit. The cookies were delicious...but it's not easy to make a bad chocolate chip cookie!

Hotel is old and in need of major repair. Had to air out room for an hour before we could stay in it. The smell of stale cigarettes and deodorizer was horrible. Guy at front desk was super. Others working or standing around not very friendly. Very over priced for the holiday.

This hotel is in a great location in Helen. We were there mainly for OctoberFest and this is an easy walk to the Festhalle, as well as to most of the restaurants and shops. Check-in was quick and easy. The room was clean and large with a mini-fridge and a microwave. Wifi and breakfast are free. The bed was comfortable... More

We chose a room with a king size bed. It was extremely comfortable. No complaints about the room. Balcony was great too, although we didn't stay around much to enjoy it. Two nights would be better than one. Fireplace in room would be nice in fall and winter. Breakfast was wonderful, especially the smoky ham. Within walking distance to center... More

This place is just close enough and yet far enough to be perfect. Stayed here during Oktober Fest and was pleasantly surprised. The check in and service was spot on and the room had been updated and nice. The best part was we could walk to anything in minutes and not hear any noise back at the room.

Checking in a hotel in Helen on an unplanned weekend is risky! I walked in, Jacob handled my check in flawlessly, I stayed using points, was given my choice of floors. That was just the beginning. My room was super clean, I am one of the travelers that dials the AC all the way down and I was not disappointed.... More

Great hotel. The suite was spacious and clean. Staff was very friendly. Could not beat the location. Most everything in town within walking distance. Plenty of options for the free breakfast. Would stay again.
