This is NOT a review of the Budgetel that used to be the Jameson. This is now called Haven. It. is. Awful. The room stinks so bad of smoke. It smells like they came in and tried to spray cleaner everywhere to disguise it but there are cigarette burns all over the bedspread. Requested a change of room but was told they were full. The room was clean but just smelled of smoke so badly. Location was good. No tv remote. No phone in room which is not a big deal. One washcloth and one towel. One bar of soap. I paid 140.00 for this room and am so disappointed.

Booked a room for 2 nights and could barely muster up the ability to stay 1. The room smelled so bad: mildew, body odor, fungus, dirty socks. Bed covers were covered in stains and cigarette burns although we were in a non smoking room. We drove 4 hours to get there and were not able to turn around and go back so we put our own blankets and pillows over the sheets and slept a few hours until the riffraff started outside. No coffee in the rooms and the coffee pots in the office for their honey bun and muffin breakfast looked like they hadn't been washed ever. Roaches in the bathroom next to the last person's pubic hairs. Go anywhere else.

This was overall a decent place to stay. The place was OK clean. We only stayed one night. They do not have breakfast...only honeybuns and muffins and coffee. If your in Helen it would be a good place to stay...if you only pay $50 a night.

Stayed here while Oktoberfest in Helen was in full swing. So I was glad to get a room on a weekend in September. A $52/night room became a $150/night room...just like that! (Snaps fingers) But that's how it goes sometimes. Decent location. About 15 minute walk to the Festhalle. No big deal. Bathroom has a vent. Always a plus. Door key works if you swipe it quickly. By staying here you'll miss the major traffic jams in the center of town on warm summer weekends. Definitely worth considering.
