          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 Although it's outdated like most things in Helen, they're slowly remodeling and upgrading.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!

          I haven't been since July so I don't know about any changes. I will say Days Inn promptly responded to my complaint and refunded my money.
