My 5 year old and I took a mother/daughter weekend to Helen. We stayed in a riverfront balcony non-smoking room on the second floor. It had two comfortable queen beds and a small minifridge/microwave combo that was convenient for storing snacks. For $187 a night, I expected a little more. The Inn is very old. The room was clean but chairs/couches had severe stains. The shower was clean but there was a large stained patched area in the shower wall and no way to plug the drain to fill the tub. The heat lamp did not work. There was one bar of facial soap and a very dirty appearing single soap dispenser in the shower. Not sure what was in it as it was not marked. The location is great on the river and the river walk from our balcony was the nicest I saw in Helen. I called to the front desk to request a 11:30 check out and I was politely told they could not do so. Average hotel, great location. Could use a little updating.
