We checked into the room in Helen Ga. Upon walking into the room it had a bad odor. Went to use bathroom and toilet was covered in stool where someone had explosive diarrhea. 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

I had a great experience. First off I had no reservation so I was a walk in on Friday July 2nd. Then I wanted to check in early and the manager on duty assisted me in getting in a couple hours early. I had room 108, it was very clean and just perfect for my needs. I was surprised that... More

My fiancee and I visited Helen for the July 4th holiday. Nothing much to say except the place is disgusting. $189 for the night, they should be ashamed. Do yourself a favor, if this is all that is left, don't go. The room smelled of cigarette smoke, the sheets were thread bare. They lights didn't all work, it was very... More

We paid $200 to stay here one night and the air conditioning barely worked, the "free wifi" was down, the electrical wires were exposed, the lights didn't work in the bathroom, there were no dressers, a beside table was missing, the outlet blew up my hair dryer, people partying in the hallway all night, people camped out on the steps...

This hotel is located right inside the city of Helen with nearby amenities that are all within walking distance. My first impression was with Ronnie who was at the customer service desk. He was very friendly and welcoming and instantly made a great first impression on me. When I inquired about the online price for a room versus the walk... More

I've traveled all around the world, and I have to say this is the most disgusting place I've ever stayed. First of all, the price was ridiculously hiked up because of a holiday weekend.. $187/night for this place was a ripoff. The room was filthy--the bedding and towels weren't clean, the floor had dog food all over it, the bathroom... More
