“Outstanding Motel”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We checked in on a Saturday and stayed for 5 days..originally planned for 6 days but I received an e-mail for a job interview. The room was very clean (even all the corners in the room and bathroom--spotless). The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay even better. The room was cleaned to perfection daily. We definitely will stay here on our next trip and will certainly tell all our friends to stay here as well.

I've been to Helen for this VW/Audi event and stayed other places "closer to the action". This time around my SO joined me, so having a place within walking distance of the restaurants and events without having to deal with the late night shenanigans was more a priority. Owners are great and personable. Room was clean and up to date. The location is perfect. Across the street a grocery to stock the room and restaurants within a short walk. We were able to walk to the events and enjoy ourselves then return to our quiet hill top motel room. Will probably be booking a room at the Heidi for SoWo 2014.
Would have been nice to have a small fridge in the room but other than that no complaints.
Do wish I had booked the windmill suite...

We really enjoyed our stay, but will ask for a room on the lower level next time. Getting too old to walk up the steps. (LOL) The owners are very nice and friendly. They are working to get the place updated with microwaves and other items for comfort. It's close enough to walk to town. Would stay again.

Room Tip: If you don't mind walking up the steps - I liked the windmill room.

Stayed one night, hot tub in the room was great seeing as it rained non stop. Chad was very friendly and helpful. Even bumped into him at breakfast the next morning and he paid for a part of our meal! That is customer service above and beyond the customary. The only down side was the weird picture over the bed.

We stayed in the windmill suite. Loved everything about this place! The owners were great. The motel was clean and well stocked. Great location! I would highly recommend you spring for the suite though. We upgraded after seeing the standard room.

We stayed in the windmill suite. It was awesome. We had a big room, fireplace, hot tub, good location, the owners are wonderful! There is lots of stuff to do within walking distance. Splurge for the suite...totally worth it. We will be back!

We loved our stay at the Heidi Motel. The Heidi Motel was clean, reasonable and right in the middle of the action for charming Alpine Helen. What could be better?! The proprietors were friendly and helpful.
