“Awesome service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Krista, at the front desk, made all of the arrangements for us. When we discovered a strange odor in our suite, Krista did everything she could do to try to fix the problem and fairly adjusted our rate to compensate for the strange aroma. This is a perfect location in Helen. We were "protected" from most of the noise of Oktoberfest yet could walk to almost all of the restaurants, shops, etc. The setting is idyllic with loads of trees and a babbling brook running behind the property. My only concern would be the inconsistency of the breakfast offerings but I was assured that this would soon be corrected. This is a great hotel. Its staff and accommodations were first rate. Krista (along with Diane and Mark and all of the housekeeping staff) should be commended for their true attention to guests. Would recommend this establishment unconditionally.

Room Tip: Try to get a balcony room in the back. The suites with jacuzzis and fireplaces are very nice.

The Hampton Helen is calm, clean, and within walking distance of almost everything. The back yard area by the river was really nice and peaceful. The front desk staff was super friendly and gave us all the information we needed to really enjoy Helen. We stayed in a standard room (no balcony), but the room felt very big and modern. We really enjoyed how the hotel helped stayed with the theme of the town and really made us feel like we were somewhere far away but still with all the Southern hospitality we're used to. We'll have to come back in the summer and go tubing!

We had to wait for the 4 pm check-in...period...but it was well worth it. Our room was spotless. The location was great also for Oktoberfest. One could drink and not worry about driving. Everything is within walking distance.

I have stayed at this property several times, and it keeps getting better! The breakfast area and lobby have been renovated - much improved. Most importantly however, is the GREAT staff, especially Colleen Roberts, Matt at the front desk and Mike the General Manager. I will be back again next year - hope they all are too!!

I found all the staff courteous and qualified. It was a great week. The rooms were clean. The location was convenient. The parking was convenient. Breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. I definately will stay here if I'm ever back in the area and will recommend this hotel to others visiting the area.

Stayed on a Monday/Tuesday. Hotel and Room were very clean. Check in was a breeze. Hotel is conveniently located to the main street of Helen. Would definately stay again. If you like the breakfast, go early. If you wait you might not get a good selection.
