I had trouble finding hotels in Helen which were accessible or had any information regarding it posted. Mostly, they are not. However, helendorf does a great job in that respect. There is an elevator and rather simple access to the Main Street sidewalk where you can get around the town. There are some places inaccessible due to stairs downtown but...

I was looking for a place with some peace and quiet away from noisy kids, teens and drunks and found it here at this very beautiful place on the river. I am a senior and drove over the area and was referred by a local resident. I love nature and the hotel is across from all the noise but it...

Just got home after participating in the 2017 Helen trout tournament. I didn't catch a winning trout, but the trip was overall highly successful because my wife and I spent two luxurious days at the Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center. Our room at the Inn was superb. Sparkling clean, gorgeously decorated and reasonably priced. The staff were extremely friendly...

It's in the middle of town,. walking distance to most things. The river is accessible, and our room was amazing. We had the large suite with a remodeled kitchen, fireplace and gorgeous bathroom. The whirlpool tub was a nice bonus!

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...

We stayed in their Jr. Suite. It was lovely. It had a nice jetted tub and wonderful walk in shower. We enjoyed the fireplace in the living area. We only made coffee in the kitchen. 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...
