Wonderful, clean, enjoyable place to stay at the Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center at 33 Munich Street in Helen, Ga. Can walk to all the shops, free parking, too. Friendly staff. We stay here every time we go to Helen! Wish we were there now! We love to sit on the balcony and watch the tubers float down the...

My family of 7 visited Helen, GA during its annual Chrstkindlmkt. While it's not Europe, it was a quaint little town, offering several fun things to do, with great food. You won't regret the trip. The Helendorf was clean, central to town, and provided the basic amenities we needed. It is situated at the river, which offers a nice view...

Our room was right on the river on the third floor. The view was beautiful,but very noisy. We also found that quiet time is not enforced on the premises which is an issue when travelling with small children. There were people partying right outside our room until well after midnight. The balcony furniture was plastic and left a lot to...

The Helendorf Hotel is an older hotel built in the 1970's. The rooms have recently been renovated. We found our suite to be large, very clean and accommodating with a small oven, refrigerator and microwave. There was also a table with chairs for extra seating and dining. We had a 3rd floor room with a balcony overlooking the Chattahoochie river...

The hotel has been newly renovated. The rooms are nice and clean. Affordable too. There are lots of outdoor activities and historic Helen Ga. is a wonderful get away. The river is perfect for tubing and a perfect activity for the children.

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Helendorf Inn, in a river-view balcony room. The location was fantastic. The hotel is right in the heart of Helen, making it easy to walk to all the shops and restaurants. (Which is very convenient, because traffic on Helen's one main road was awful!) But, despite it's central location, the hotel was surprisingly...

Nice hotel with a nice German feel, People are honest and friendly. Location is perfectly situated in the middle of the town. The room had a patio with a view of the River. Everything is within walking distance from here. There is a great German restaurant across the street and a Mexican restaurant that serves killer margaritas around the corner....

We stayed at the Helendorf River Inn in Helen GA this weekend.We stayed in a patio room on the river. The view of the river was great and we could hear it during the night. I fished only steps from the door of our room. Everything was well kept and clean. I highly recommend this place if you are in...

Came for a quiet weekend away from everyday life. Tower suite did not disappoint!! VERY well decorated and private. Loved the windows on all 4 sides. Staff was amazing and treated my wife and I like we were the only guests of the weekend. We will be staying here every time we come to Helen.
