This review should be called "Beggars Can't Be Choosers". I dropped into town from hiking the Appalachian Trail. I used the Priceline app on my iPhone to find a room for the night. Several hotels were booked, this being a beautiful weekend in North Georgia. I took the less-expensive and available room at Hofbrau. The hotel is located at the...

The hotel is old, the fireplaces "have not worked for years", and the cable TV had a total of 7 fuzzy stations. The staff was courteous and the shower was hot. That was the best thing I could day about it. Find a better option!

Horrid place... Beautiful setting. Dilapidated rooms, too expensive for a supposed "nice place" the cheapest hotel is nicer than this run down mess! Clerk rude. Cancellation fee $100.00. Booked and saw the room, changed my mind.. Wanted to charge $100.00 fee!!! Rip off!!! If you go here wear a hazmat suit while you sleep!!!

The only thing good is the location by the river. The place is rundown, dirty and smells like wet dog. It is by far the dirtiest hotel I have seen in 20 years. The guy at the front desk was a delight on checking in and warned us that it wasn't the Hilton!

Horrible, filthy place. In desperate need of a tear down. Do not go there if you want a clean, habitable room. Truly a must miss . One couple had to make their own bed, hair was on the shower wall, and there were holes that were crudely patched. No ,no,no!!

Good place to just crash if your site seeing. Always enjoy talking with Barnard, he's very nice and friendly and willing to work with you. The...

This is where we always stay when in Helen. Close to town and right on the river, which is what we like best. The room was clean and quiet and Bernard, the desk clerk, was super friendly and helpful. Give that man a raise!

Great Location! Right on the river. Great staff and spacious rooms. Really close to downtown Helen. Walking distance from shops and food! I would for sure recommend this place to family and friends and will be staying here again in the future.

The heater did not work. Sheets and Pillow cases had not been changed, stains (blood, mouth drool and makeup) and pubic hair. Room smelt dirty, and a few roaches. You could feel the springs in the beds.

My wife and I stopped in to the Hofbrau Restaurant and Beergarten to check out the menu and to see the place. We weren't able to eat but were amazed at the complete German offerings available. Everything from Sauerbraten to Schnitzels to German Chocolate Cake were found and at very reasonable prices. We did have time to enjoy a couple...
