This 2 stars hotel is in a convenience location so you will pay more during the Oktoberfest season. During this time there are a lot of motorcycle activities therefore you will be wake-up early morning with the rattling sound. The room I was had a large TV, microwave and refrigerator. The carpet had some smell to cigarette. Make sure you... More

Hotel and rooms are in seriously bad condition, in need of renovation. Toilet paper holder falling out of wall, bathroom walls streaked from moisture, shower curtain mildewed, soft mattresses. Door handle to room worked only after several tries. Ants ! NO WIFI. $50 hotel for over $100/night. BAD DEAL. Staff often absent from front desk.

If possible to stay somewhere else, I would strongly advise it if you want a comfortable and clean stay in Helen, GA. The desk staff came off rude and unprofessional during our stay. They also tried to double charge us by saying they didn't receive payment or that our card was declined. This happened to another group we were with... More

Checked the bed for bugs and found feces smeared down the side of the bed or it could have been foul smelling mud. The room had mold... More

Pool area was very clean and secure. Continental breakfast had many options and was better than expected. Located within walking distance of great specialty shops as well as fine dining.If you forgot any items from home... Dollar General is just down the street.

I was on the bottom floor and had no issues with any noise above me, nor outside of my room. I would stay here again and would tell others to stay here. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything we needed in it. Had planned on staying here again next month ( September 2016 ), yet last I... More

We stayed at America's Best Value Inn August 5th thru 7th. It was a 3rd anniversary trip for my husband and I. The hotel is really convient to shops, restaurants, bars, & attractions. Anytime we wanted to eat we left our car, walked & ate at the Troll Tavern, Hoffers Bakery or all the other eateries in town. The gentleman... More
