After a 12 hour drive from illinois, i figured this cute mountain town with the name castle inn would be a great place to stay the night.Well was i wrong. The check in was two blocks away. The room was on a noisy street above a bar, and all i can say is out dated. There are very nice chain hotels in that town, that would be a better choice. The town is nice, the mountains are to die for. But dont stay at the castle inn.

We checked in for a weekend get-a-way to the Castle Inn. I read another reviewer and Im not sure what they are talking about with the "weird check in". The check in was on-site and we just walked upstairs to our room. We had wonderful views of downtown and it was fun people watching! We were literally right downtown and could walk to everything...which came in handy after one too many "das boot" beers ;) Everything was clean and nice. Everything was just as expected and the rates were great. We took advantage of the third free night so our whole trip came to less than $250. They don't over-do it on the amenities, but I have stayed in several other places around town and Castle Inn is def the cleanest by far, has the best views and best value for your money. I found it to be perfectly clean and exactly right for our much needed romantic break. My hubby had called ahead and had flowers and a cheese & fruit basket with a bottle of chilled wine waiting in the room. What a nice surprise!! I would suggest the wine tastings at Habersham winery and we really enjoyed our dinner at Nachoochee grill. We drove out to the Mark of the Potter and it was worth the trip (about 15 minutes). Very cool seeing the fish and waterfall. We loved it and will be back for sure.

Last year on Mother's Day weekend ... My Son and I went to Helen, GA and stayed in the Castle Inn. I am planing another trip this year because we enjoyed it so much. I actually felt secure and safer in the Inn than I have in any other Hotel I have stayed at, and The decorations and furniture were awesome. I slept very well and it was in the middle of the town so we just walked to most place to eat, drink, and shop. Looking forward to it again this year.

What a great stay, just got back from Helen, well a week ago. But we had such a great time at the inn. We lucked out and got a balcony room that overlooked the entire street. Just a pleasant overall stay with no issues what so ever. Id recommend to all my friends that we will continue to stay there.

Room Tip: Street side!!
