I know that Helen is a busy tourist attraction and I really didn't go into this looking for something extraordinary, I just wanted basics at bare minimum and didn't even get that. We went to check in, had a confirmation number but yet reservation was nowhere to be found. Guy said he had rooms but was hoping they sold out...

This hotel was one of the direst hotels I have ever been in. Even the walls were dirty. The beds had blood stains, dirt, and other peoples hair on them. The room was also not ready when we arrived after check in time. Would not recommend staying here.

We've stayed here multiple times! John is very personable. Although it's outdated like most things in Helen, they're slowly remodeling and upgrading. Within walking distance of tons of places, and great for the value! Will be visiting again!

We will definitely check with them before deciding where to...

John at the front desk was a very friendly man, and did everything he could to help us to the best of his ability, and made sure that our stay would be a great stress free night. I would recommend this place to anyone going through Helen. Very reasonably priced, and they're working hard since they're under new ownership to...

I was initially given a room on the backside of the building and when we walked in it was very outdated, smelly, and had dust everywhere... however the staff was extremely helpful when we came to them about maybe changing to a cleaner room. They switched us to a room at the front of the building and it was a...
