I have stayed at this Hampton Inn twice now and it is fabulous. It is a quiet, clean and friendly hotel to stay at. And the location is great, you can walk to just about everything in Helen from this hotel. I will continue to stay here when I visit Helen.

Hilton Hotels does it right most all the time, and this was an extraordinary evening in a small Alpine village. Mother, daughter and granddaughter spent a lovely evening here on our way to Babyland General Cabbage Patch Hospital the following day.

Being a Hilton Honors member, we were quietly upgraded to a larger room on a high floor near the elevator...my initial request several years ago when I enrolled in the Honors program. I failed to thank management for that last week, so please accept my gratitude now. It was lovely to have the extra space for a rambunctious 2 yearold!

The reception are was on the second floor and we chose to walk up on the outside as the weather was agreeable and we wanted to experience the European ambiance.

The bed was excellent, the lighting very adequate, shower was powerful, and there was enough room in the bathroom for two...if needed.

The breakfast was hot and ample and our little one enjoyed the fare.

My family and I stayed here Thanksgiving week. The front desk agent was wonderful upon check in and check out. Breakfast was a bit different then last visit. The orange juice wasn't the best but the breakfast waitress quickly fit it. The rooms were well cleaned and stocked especially with staying with a family of 4. If in Helen I highly recommend to stay at the Hampton Inn.

We arrived late in the night. Making arrangements to do so was easier than at other hotels in similar circumstances. The information was well-communicated to the later shifts. We had an accessible room with a king bed and roll-in shower. The bed was on the soft side but still fine. The heat (and air conditioning) has an exterior-wall unit, with an interior-wall thermostat. It worked particularly well. The hotel is a short distance from the shops and restaurants in Helen. Breakfast is free and good. It varied somewhat from day to day, and included scrambled-egg patties (better than some others, but not like hand-made), bacon and ham, Belgian waffles, cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and the like. The hotel is elevated, with parking below the building at ground level. Presumably this is because land is tight in Helen. Some notes from a wheelchair user: The drainage of the roll-in shower is a disaster. A shower will flood the whole bathroom and much of the front hall, right up to the door. A blockade of towels is the only solution. The slope of the shower floor appears to be the problem. The hair drier was at standing height, difficult to reach from a chair, with buttons on the wall unit that were hard to push. The two disabled parking spaces were in the open. It would have been nice to have two in the covered parking as well. Entering or exiting a car in bad weather is more difficult for a disabled person. Also, some conditions are adversely affected by heat, making covered parking helpful. Overall, a fine, helpful and friendly staff, and good hotel.

This was our first time to stay in Helen. It's just off the main drag and away from the noise of the street. We usually choose HIE, but this was comparable accomodations with a complimentary breakfast.

Room Tip: The river view is a plus!

You couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Helen, GA. The rooms were clean, the breakfasts were great, there was complementary snacks or cookies each afternoon, and the staff was wonderful. Walking distance to everything! Will be back, for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the elevator on a higher floor.

We visited this Hampton Inn in the summer of 2011 and enjoyed our stay. When we returned to Helen, we decided to stay there again. We were not disappointed. The room was spacious, comfortable and the balcony was a plus.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the back side. They have balconies that overlook the river.
