We stayed over MLK weekend and had a dog-friendly room overlooking the Chattahoochee River. She loved playing in the river while we enjoyed sitting on the patio enjoying adult beverages. Hotel staff was friendly and efficient. The room was clean and suited for our needs. Price was very fair and we would stay again.

We stayed in the Riverfront Balcony suite- the view is gorgeous and the price is very fair. There are charming features like a real door key, an old school telephone and the option for adjoining rooms. The suite was well decorated and larger than we expected. This inn is conveniently located and close to everything. The laundry facility consist of...

We had a small suite. The room was huge. The hotel although older is very well maintained and the river front room have a great view of the river. The bed was a little on the firm side but the shower was huge. The breakfast is a typical continental breakfast. We would stay here again. Within walking distance to everything...

Kitchen was nicely updated with granite and stainless appliances. The private balcony overlooking the river was great. It was the perfect location and we walked...

The hotel is an older location but great. The hotel is centrally located near all the activities and restaurants downtown, riverside and very clean! The staff is nice as well! I have stayed here many times and will continue to do so!

This is one of the better options in Helen. The family-owned hotel has a quaint atmosphere and is reasonably priced. It may not have the perks of a hotel chain, but it is well worth a stay. Plus, the staff is welcoming and willing to assist with any need.

Nice rooms on the river and in the middle of everything. P{ark your car once and enjoy walking around Helen. The nearby festhalle always has something going on and I recommend the Troll Tavern for lunch along the river. Good German restaurants in area!

We stayed here before the new year and really enjoyed our time at the property. We had a riverfront room and we enjoyed sitting no the patio. Our room was clean and cozy. My only complaint regarding comfort, was the mattress. We found it to be too firm, without any of the support. Otherwise, it was a great stay and...

Great place to stay. Went in between Christmas and New Years. Loved the whole town decorated. Crowds starting coming in more towards New Years but still had lots of fun. Hotel is within walking distance to everywhere. Decent rooms, clean and staff very friendly.
