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.

Wonderful place to stay. Your right in the center of everything. Just a simple walk out to your patio from your room, allows you to take in the beauty of the Chattahoochee River. The rooms are very clean & comfortable. We have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed.

I debated on 3 or 4 stars. I went with 4 bc I decided that for what this hotel is, older, it was pretty great. The staff are awesome! Every encounter with a staff member has been top notch. Accommodating and super friendly! The location is wonderful, walking distance to just about everything. The hotel itself is super cute, sitting...

We stayed at the Helendorf the weekend before Christmas. The hotel, staff, location, everything was great. The hotel has been family owned from the start. The owners are hands on and it shows it the attitude of their staff. The owners are retired military as well, which just tops off how great the place is. Stay here you will not...

Great location, very nice people at the desk, and the rooms are clean and fine for an overnight or weekend. If you are looking for a 5 star resort or a new hotel feel this will not meet your expectations. But if you want a solid place that you can feel comfortable for the night with a great location in...

Our stay at Helendorf River Inn was fantastic! The staff were excellent in accommodating our needs. They were so nice and patient in showing us the difference in a standard room versus a suite. They made sure that they placed us in close proximity of the elevator and handicap parking. We stayed in one of the suites on the second...

We stayed here our last visit to Helen for my birthday, so they were our first choice when we decided to visit. As before, they made our stay very pleasant. We stayed in their large river suite, and while the room carries the rustic charm and beauty of the hotel, it had all the modern amenities one could ask for....

Great location, nice front desk staff but dirty rooms, cookies and toothpicks on carpet, hair in shower wall, dirty balcony and malfunctioning remote. Also no tissues. I addressed these issues at check out, hope they improve their services because this hotel could be a gold mine!
