Riverbend Motel & Cabins
Ranked #6 of 18 Hotels in Helen
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My husband and 2 small dogs certainly enjoyed our visit to Helen and especially our stay at the Riverbend Motel. Mark and Mrs. Merchant were more than helpful, kind and concerned that our room was acceptable. Thank you Mark! The Riverbend is: Comfortable, Clean and Quiet. The motel is located on a dead end overlooking the river with a lovely view. There are swings, tables and a grill along the river bank. The motel has excellent lighting and we felt very safe and secure during our stay. The beds are so comfortable, the room was fresh smelling and the carpet so clean that you could walk bearfoot. This motel is excellent for pet owners with a large lighted area to excercise your pets. You will never regret making your reservations at the Riverbend. We hope to be back very soon. Great job Mark, you made us feel special.

Room Tip: Non-pet owners do not fear this hotel. A professional carpet cleaner is used immediately after chec...

I was with the "ride to the hooch" bunch and echo the reviews above...awesome location, very clean rooms, exceptionally comfortable beds and, above all else, "Motel Mark" is the man! I've travelled all over this wonderful country of ours and stayed in everything from dumps to exclusive high-dollar resorts and have NEVER been treated as well and made to feel as welcome as Mark made us feel. I just hope we diddn't have too much fun to get a return invite!!

Room Tip: Just trust Motel Mark

Absolutely wonderful stay! My king size bed was so comfy, the room was clean and very pretty, Motel Mark did the best job ever of making sure our large party (27 people!) were comfortable, made to feel at home, and located to minimize distrurbing other guests. We didn't realize we would be literally "down town" and loved being next to the creek yet also in town where we could walk anywhere we needed to go. Kudos to Motel Mark and Staff for making our crew feel so welcome. Hopefully we are invited back next September. :)

I was very grateful to have been offered a wonderful rental house in town when I called to reserve 2 rooms. The rental property was wonderful and helped make for a very pleasant family weekend. The owners of Riverbend clearly have their customers' best interest and comfort in mind.

My daughter spotted the Riverbend Motel and Cabins as we were leaving the Hampton Inn, where she had pre-paid reservations through Expedia months before Labor Day week-end. Didn't work. I waited with my grandson while my daughter went inside to get our room, then decided to join her in the lobby. When I did, she was still on the phone with Expedia, but handling business with Mark as well. She was in a tizzie and Mark was in charge, calm, and knowing just how to handle the situation. Plus, he was personable and fun. The cabin was perfect, much nicer and better suited for our needs than just a "room" at the Hampton Inn. We were right on the river, had a grill, a balcony, 2 bathrooms, a stove and frig., front door parking, a/c that worked, a hot tub, and a fireplace, perfect!!! The timing wasn't right for us to use the fireplace, but it will be at Christmas time, and since Helen is the perfect meeting place for me to get together with my daughter and grandson, the the River Bend Motel and Cabins will be the place we will stay every time. Thank you again Mark, for a job well done.

Thank you Mark for making our stay the best it could have been.

Room Tip: The cabins are right on the river and in a very natural setting. Lots of trees, yard, and shade.

We met our best friends here over Labor Day for a couple days of "down time" and couldn't have picked a better place!!! We were arriving very late driving in from Atlanta and it was absolutely no problem. The manager was waiting for us and helped us park and get to our room having already turned on the AC for us. The room was great with comfortable seating, bed, large flat screen TV, and all the amenities you expect from larger chains. It is an older motel but is well-maintained and clean. We especially enjoyed sitting by the river in the swings and watching the tubers float down the river. Don't expect much from the breakfast but it is free and convenient. Would absolutely stay here again on a return trip. So convenient to the town. Just a short block to great shopping and eating.
