This is the second time I have stayed at the Helendorf. We are always pleased with our stay. Rooms are well maintained and clean. It is always quiet because the doors are on the outside of the building, Wonderful view of the river over the balconies. Kitchenettes are even available in the non suite rooms. Always get what we are...

We stayed at the Helendorf during a Corvair meet. The room we stayed in was a riverfront with a balcony. The room appeared to have been recently renovated. The accommodations were excellent. We look forward to another stay.

We booked out room through Trip Advisor, and the price was about half what the hotel was charging, both on-line and when I called them. When we arrived, the person checking us in was not friendly, and I don't know if it was because we booked through Trip Advisor or what, but she gave us a bad room on the...

We had 2 rooms for a girls weekend. The hotel was centrally located in town and was close to most anything you would want to go. Our rooms were clean and the beds and pillows were really comfortable. I enjoyed the balcony over-looking the river. The only issue was the noise from the tubers on the river during the day,...

The place reminded us all of when we were in Germany, serving and defending the free world during the ending years of the Cold War. We spent most of our time outside overlooking the river and enjoying each others company.

Situated on the Chattahoochee River within easy walking distance of just about everything you would want to do in Helen. Private balconies overlook the river for relaxing morning coffee or watching the tubers floating by in the afternoon. Would stay here again.

The inn is not adjacent to the river. We stayed on the second floor of the older portion of the inn. The steps are narrow and hard for us to climb; however, the steps have a landing which is nice.The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is good. The inn is very close to the Festhall--you can walk to...

We were on a road trip and ended up in Helen with no reservations. I did a little checking and found this place. We had a room on the third floor with private balcony. The river had a small rock formation directly below us and a great river babble! The continental breakfast was very sparse but that's the only negative....

The location in the middle of town is great for walking to everything and being right on the river. The rooms have all been recently renovated with double sinks, one in the bath and one out. View is off our balcony. Recommend.
