Reviewed September 19, 2013

I hate to be negative, but I haven't been that skeeved out by a hotel room since the late 90's. Aside from the fact that we didn't get the room we were promised, it was dirty and bug-ridden. First, it was a smoking room, which why do people even still have these? There was a huge iron-shaped burn on the floor, along with cigarette burns. When we found out we were getting a smoking room, they said they would be sure to sanitize it for us. When we got there, it stunk big time and when we went to the office to tell them, they handed us a can of Febreze to use. Also, the shower had bugs in it. So when I told the office I said, "I have dead bugs in my shower." The guy comes over with a spray can and says, "Good news. It's just live gnats." The guys in the office were nice but the place itself was just sub-standard.

Stayed there for one night. Rooms are very cheaply renovated, bathroom could be cleaner and people at front desk don't seem to love their job. Complementary breakfast was not worth to take. Just take a coffee and leave.
I wouldn't recommend to stay there at this very high priced motel.

Worst hotel ever! They tried to tell me my reservation through booking.com didn't count and changed me over 50 than they should have. They had to refund it. Nasty rooms, I didn't even want to shower. Wifi didn't work in the rooms, only outside, I called the front desk about the wifi and they didn't know so she said she would call me back and never did. DON'T GO HERE. Even America's best in Helen is better

Within minutes of checking in we noticed the carpet had not been vacuumed in forever, coming off the floor in sections, the mattress had nothing left between you and the springs, pee stains on the sheets, and I was bitten by a bed bug within seconds of sitting on the spring-poking mattress. Bedbug carcasses everywhere. This place seriously needs to be checked out by the health department. We could not leave fast enough. It's amazing that this place can survive in a tourism driven town such as Helen.
