Loved staying at the Hampton Inn Helen. The staff was so accommodating and they made sure that we had the exact rooms we wanted. Check in and out was easy and the continental breakfast was really good. We all liked the cheese omelets. The best thing about this hotel was that our adjoining rooms had balconies overlooking the river! I did not expect this and really enjoyed sipping my morning coffee with the sounds of the river outside. The rooms were clean and we had no problems during our stay. This hotel is also close enough that you can walk anywhere in Helen without issue. We would stay here again and again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

The outside appearance of the hotel is very attractive. Access to the lobby is a little difficult. You either use outside stairs, or an elevator in the parking area. The issue with using the elevator is that the lights only come on at a certain time in the evening. Upon my arrival around 5:00pm, it was raining and a little dreary and dark out. The outside lights were not on, making unloading of our luggage a little difficult. My wife nearly fell because she couldn't see the curb near the elevator. I also thought the staff was very unfriendly. During my stay, only 2 staff members even smiled and acted pleasant. At times, when we walked by the front desk, some of the staff looked very mad or irritated. The breakfast was also a HUGE disappointment! Options were limited, and the hot food offered was very bland and extremely greasy. On a positive note, our room was very clean and up-to-date. I did worry a little one day when we came back to our room in the middle of the day, and 3 people came out of our room. Two of which appeared to be housekeeping staff, and I'm not sure who the 3rd person was. If I come back to this area again, I will probably look elsewhere.

Firstly, about the location: It is perfect. On the road directly behind the downtown main street. One block to all the action but still in a quiet and safe place.
As it has been my experience with all Hampton Inns, the room was super clean. We stayed in a King Suite, and had a good nights sleep after all the hiking and travelling.
The breakfast next morning was great too.
Will look forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the river have a great view.

My husband and I love staying at Hampton Inns but this place was not up to their standards. There was a huge water stain on the ceiling in the shower, carpets were dirty and the furniture needed dusting. The ice machine on our floor was out of order the entire time we were there. The plastic chairs on the porch were dirty. The room had an off smell and there was a weird stain on the wall right above the headboard....? :-O

Their "hot" breakfast left A LOT to be desired. Pre-cooked, frozen "omelets", frozen kielbasa sausage slices. We couldn't use the waffle maker because someone didn't know how to use it and broke it. The apple juice coming out of their machine was extremely watered down.

The bed was comfortable and it does have a good location within view of the creek and walking to town is a breeze but I would say that's about it.

We will not be staying at this Hampton Inn when we return to Helen again.

Very nice setting, room was very clean and fresh smelling. Bedding was excellent. Have stayed here several times in the past as well and Helen GA is a beautiful little town and restaurants and shops are within a short walk.

This is quite possibly the hotel with the best location in Helen. Close to shops and restaurants without having to drive. The best part for us was that a part of the AP trail is accessible from the hotel. The trailhead is at the park across the street.

My husband & i love staying at Hampton Inn. Usually large rooms & extremely clean! Unfortunately we was VERY disappointed with the Hampton Inn in Helen GA. A very small room...needing dusting bad! and way outdated furnishings. Wouldn't stay there again if we ever go to Helen again.
