“Quaint”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

On September 30, 2013, we stayed overnight in Helen and had booked a reservation at the Heidi Motel based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable, nothing fancy, but our needs. We had a room on the bottom floor and could hear the footsteps of the people staying above us, but it was not noisy or a problem. The location is convenient for walking to most of Helen's shops and restaurants.

Though Heidi Motel may be small, it is very very nice. It has been newly renovated. New bedding, new beds, electronics, EVERYTHING. And out jacuzzi tub was a definite plus. The owners were so sweet, I loved them. EVERYONE if you're staying in Helen stay here. You won't be disappointed.

It's not a luxury motel but VERY clean, VERY comfortable king bed/pillows, very quiet, and large room right in town. Room had obviously been recently renovated. Slept very well on the king bed and thanks for the new bedding. Staff/owners very nice and accommodating as well. We'll stay there again the next time we're in Helen.

Room Tip: We stayed in #22

We stayed here in August 2013. This is a small but quaint Motel. It is very clean and is walking distance to town which we loved. The owners are working on their renovations so there were some things missing like a microwave and phone. I inquired about it and those items are in the plan and will be installed by the end of the year. The staff was very nice. We definitely look forward to coming back to Helen and would love to stay at The Heidi Motel again. Thanks Donna

We were skeptic, but could not have been happier. The room was perfect, had a hot tub & fireplace. The location could not have been better, parked the car & walked everywhere. The family that owns the place was down to earth and provided what ever we needed.

Will definitely go again!

The motel was close to all the shopping and all the restaurants in the downtown area. Everything was within walking distance. The rooms were very clean and seemed that they had been remodeled recently. My wife and I would stay here again.

We were there just this week and enjoyed the motel. The family that runs it are so kind and try to please. My husband and I enjoyed just sitting out in the swing overlooking part of Helen. The swing is in an arbor of Carolina Jasmine and so comfortable. They graciously let us leave our car there after we checked out because you can walk all over Helen from the Heidi. Would highly recommend. Not fancy, just comfortable and affordable.
