Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Helen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2011

This is an older hotel, but it is very clean and roomy and a very affordable price. It has a great location, so you can easily stroll through town without having to drive anywhere. Traffic can get backed up in Helen on a nice day, so it is nice to be able to walk everywhere. The balcony was also a bonus. It was nice to sit outside and watch the river. This is definitely where we will stay on our next trip to Helen!

I was extremely pleased with the Helendorf hotel after we stayed there for 3 days. The hotel staff was extremely efficient, polite, and very always there with what you needed.
The management was just awesome. I have never been to a hotel where the manager actually checked on how you were doing and if you needed anything.
I will be back to Helen and I will stay in the Helendorf hotel.
Thank you for making our trip so successfull.

The hotel it self is a little outdated but the location makes up for it all. It was clean and the staff were friendly. A little pricey for Labor Day weekend but in the end it was worth it. It was within walking distance for everything we wanted to do in the town. Traffic was pretty bad in and out of town so it was nice to walk.

This is the best hotel in Helen. We stayed ther for an aniversary weekend and enjoyed the great view to the river while watching the tubers abd having a glass of wine.
We cannot believe that there is a negative review posted. Those people must have confused the place.

We really enjoyed our stay. We had a suite with river view. It was clean, no smells, comfortable bed, plenty of space. Great customer service. Will stay again most definetly.
Some areas need atention like in front of the elevator. The lobby area is too small for breakfast. Other than that it is super.

This hotel is situated right in the heart of Helen. The room was clean, quiet, and modern. They had free parking, free wifi, & free cont. breakfast. There was lots of outdoor seating (plastic tables and chairs) setup in a large patio area along the banks of the river. Very peaceful to sit and read or chat with others. Helen is a fun town my family has been visiting since I was a small child. I wish I had stayed here a long time ago!
