My husband and I own a pet boutique in Rome, Ga called the "Backyard ". We come to Helen off and on to re-stock a booth we have on main street in Alpine (it has pet products). Riverbend is the reason we look forward to coming, Mark is wonderful, the rooms are great with really soft beds, so close to town, right next to the river and the most important feature.. PETS ARE WELCOME!!!!! Our Shih-tzu "Gidget" loves to stay at Riverbend and we recommend all our customers at the "Backyard" in Rome to stay here when they come to Helen.

This was our first trip to Helen, Ga. and the Riverbend Motel was perfect for our stay! We were in walking distance to almost the whole town. The motel was very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful! We are already planning another trip to Helen and I will definitely stay at the Riverbend Motel everytime!

I can't say enough about my wonderful stay at Riverbend. The owners went way beyond the call of duty to make everything perfect. I enjoyed sitting in the swings next to the Chattahoochee River, It was so peaceful. A couple decided to renew their wedding vows next to the river and stayed at this hotel. It's just like "HEAVEN ON EARTH." It's in walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The rooms just recently remodeled. The beds slept great with wonderful pillows. I didn't want to leave this wonderful place.

My wife and I were very pleased to find this quaint hotel while visiting Helen, GA. We were pleased at the clean, newly-updated equipment and bed. Mark, the Manager, gave us a choice of two rooms, and checked with us after we were settled to see if there was anything he could do to make our stay more comfortable. Even though we were only staying one night, he offered us free parking in the Hotel parking lot--avoiding parking fees in town(1 block away). We enjoyed sitting by the river in the afternoon in one of several swings that are set up in the picnic area, and we watched another couple with children wading and collecting small stones from the shallow water. Later, we walked the short distance to the heart of downtown, and had a wonderful dinner. Very relaxed and peaceful..... We will be back! Our compliments to the management! Great value for the reasonable price!
-- Also, there is a ramp to the first floor-- to assist people with walking difficulties...very helpful.

We spent two nights at Riverbend and the rooms were great.The outside appearance is deceiving.The rooms have just been redone and were fantastic, newly remodeled,large flatscreen TV's,new beds etc.The owner was really helpful and was always willing to help out anyway he could. Also a great location right on the river.Would highly recommend it .
