Spent 3 nights in cabin # 2 and it was a wonderful relaxing experience. Cabin was well appointed, it had all I needed for a stay, full kitchen, loft bedroom. balcony overlooking river. Mark and staff were superb to work with. Housekeeping great. Location is easy walk to downtown for shopping, eating etc. 2 short blocks to it all. I will stay here again next time I am in Helen. Mark did all he could to ensure the stay was excellant.

For many years my family and friends have made many motorcycle trips and family trips to Helen. We would never stay anywhere other than Riverbend. We prefer to rent the entire motel. Mark and his family have become family to us, So willing to do whatever it takes to make our stay the best!! Always clean, comfy beds, walking distance to town, and that wonderful river bank! Onsite entertainment (Mark) lol and his lovely wife Gretta, What more can you ask for??? Wish I was there now! Debra Wilson Elberton,Ga

My wife and I recently sold our cabin near Turners Corner and was looking for a place to stay on weekend trips. Riverbend fills the spot,

My husband and I stay here every time we are in town. Mark, the owner, and his entire staff are eager to please you from the moment you walk in their door. The rooms have been recently freshly painted and decorated and are kept exceptionally clean. The new mattresses they have are so comfortable and they will even go so far as to put you in a room according to your mattress preference (firm or soft). We never have to take our car out unless we want to go sightseeing because the motel is only a couple little blocks to the heart of town. Their rates are generally lower than any other hotel, with the exception of the brand new ones, and much more updated. It's location right on the river is heaven. It's such a hoot swinging on their swings at the river and watching the hundreds to thousands of tubers floating down stream. We will never stay anywhere else as long as Mark and his staff are there.

My family has been gonig to River Bend Motel every summer for many years. Each time we go it gets better and better. Every time we go back there is a new rennovation to the room. The owner and entire staff are awesome and the location is perfect....we very rarely have to take our car out for the entire week. My husband gets up to fish every morning and we never miss a day of tubing. We BBQ on the property and relax on the swings down by the water. It doesn't get any better than that. This year we are having our family reunion there. I can't wait!
