Right on the river me and my family just stayed 2 nights and it was excellent. Clean rooms, great staff owner very friendly. It is pet friendly as well. Conveinent to everything. River a couple steps out the door and grills and benches set up. Close to everything, closer to river than all others. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Rooms are great have been remodeled and are very nice. We enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely stay there upon going back to Helen.

Room Tip: Believe all room to be excellent and the location close to the river as in walking out the door I ha...

Great location. We had adjoining rooms. Both very clean. Mark was wonderful, he gave us names of restaurants and all were great. We were able to walk to everything from hotel. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends and family. M.Gray Chattanooga,TN

Original motel is definitely quite old. Management has done a great job fixing it up. We did not give a five star because there is no clock in the room, the phone is circa 1980, and the built in hair dryer wouldn't run on high without shorting the system. Managament is very friendly and helpful, location is right on the river and an easy walk to all the shops. Beds were comfortable, and the price can't be beat!

Mark was such a help to us senior citizens who wanted a nice place to chill out by the river. Mark guided us to a great restaurant as well as other neat places to go to. We so enjoyed watching the folks tubing by us as we sat at a table provided by Riverbend Motel and enjoyed our picnic lunch. Next trip WE will be doing tubing down the river! And we plan to bring more folks and stay at Riverbend Motel again. Mark, thanks for your great service, reasonable rates and the kind help you extended to us ladies. Your staff were wonderful to us too. We'll be back!!! Donna S- Ooltewah, TN

Room Tip: Just ask for the kind of room you want. We wanted a good view of the river and we got it.

Beautiful place right on the river with swings and picnic tables. Friendly, helpful staff. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants in downtown Helen but quiet and away from the traffic. Can't wait to go back!

This motel is not the newest kid on the block. It is a little tired and could use a few touch ups. With that being said, however, it is a good place to stay in Helen that will take you out of the fray. Riverbend is down a little street and sits right on the river. There are porch swings, picnic tables, and a bench that you can use to watch the action on the Chatahoochie River. I didn't know this river was so popular for tubing but I quickly learned that tubing is a major attraction in Helen. After hiking several miles, it was refreshing to sit with our feet in the river and watch the constant parade. The staff at the motel is exceptionally friendly with information about where to eat (and where not to). Breakfast is served daily. If we ever return to Helen, we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Get as close to the river as you can. There is no elevator so be prepared to carry luggage up the st...
