We stayed at the Helendorf in June. Our room faced the river, which we had a great view of the tubers floating down the river. Quite entertaining to watch. The hotel has had recent renovations and is quite charming. Our room was equipped with a small stove, micro and refrigerator. Also, our room was quite large with a table and... More

Convinced by friends, looking for a 2 night getaway.....had never heard of Helen, GA. What a wonderful find!! The Helendorf Inn, sitting perfectly on the banks of the Chatchooche River. At night you hear the rustle of the water, by day...watching the tubers 'Rolling down the River!' The rooms are clean, obviously under renovations, our room on the end further... More

The rooms are beautiful. Helendorf really needs to update pictures on website because they are all updated and modern and beautiful. Sitting on the porch and watching everyone tube is the best tv ever. My family visited as well and were not only amazed with the town but with how you can just sit and watch everyone and relax outside... More

Stayed at the Helendorf for the first time in 10 years. The hotel looked the same---that is it looked ten years older and little or nothing done to keep it in good or even moderate shape. The location (right on the river) was still great but nothing else to brag about. The rooms were tired looking with most needing a... More

This was our first time to the Henendorf Inn and it most certainly will not be the last. The rooms were very clean. We were on the first floor right on the river front watching the hundreds of tubers. The rooms were very clean. The hotel was convenient to everything.We never had to move our car. There were so many... More

They only had a smoking room available when I booked( I don't smoke) but when a non-smoking room open they automatically gave it to us. They are very friendly and you need to try to the German restaurant across the street bodensee

I wish I had know about this hidden gem years ago!!! It was a little slow checking in, but it was well worth the wait!!! If you want a river view room, we recommend the bottom floor. The balconies on the 2nd and 3rd floor have wide wooden slats (pretty & very German look) which make it almost impossible to... More

The outside still looks a little dated but the inside of room is now much nicer and we stayed in the upgrade room which had river balcony and lots of room. Staff are all very friendly and helpful.

From the second floor balcony it's a River of pink, green, blue and yellow tubes floating down the river! .Helendorf is in the perfect location to Main Street Helen attractions. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The room is spacious, clean and recently updated, except for the old timely screen door to the balcony. The grounds are immaculate and... More
