My mom, 2 children, and myself stayed here over the weekend. The room was a bit out dated but kept with the Bavarian/German theme of Helen. The room was larger than we expected and very clean!! We had a 1st floor room that opened directly onto the patio on the river. What a wonderful way to let kids play! The room had a great kitchenette with a stove, oven and fridge. The bathroom wasn't large, but had plenty of room to take care of business. The shower was great with wonderful water pressure and plenty of hot water! It is located in the middle of town for easy access to all the shopping. As for parking, the spaces are tight for larger vehicles, but there was a lower lot that would be adequate.
There was an indoor pool that appeared quite nice, however, we did not go swimming. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was coffee and cider provided in the lobby and a nice continental breakfast. Pricing was very surprising as it was well within our budget! It was also nice to stay in a locally owned business rather than a corporate giant. We will definately be back to visit!
