We booked our room through Expedia. When we arrived, they had already given our room away. The manager was rude and said it wasn't his problem. Even the lobby smelled, so I'm glad we didn't stay there. The rooms were probably disgusting anyway.

This place is a standard days inn, but it's old and a little dated. Clean, yes. That's about it. For the money there are better places to stay. While not horrible there are better choices. Staff was fine. No negative issues there. Linens and towels were clean.

The hotel is independently owned is nothing you would expect from Days Inn. The desk clerk was rude. I spoke with him personally for reservations & upon arrival he informed me he didn't have any rooms available except one with a leaking toilet. He said he would "do me a favor" & repair it in about an hour. We had...

Most importantly the bed sheets were clean and the air conditioner worked great. I was just a little disappointed in the decor. The wallpaper was peeling in several places and some of it was even torn off. I guess for the prices they charged I just expected more, especially from a Days Inn hotel. The frint desk person was busy...

We came into Helen on a Sat. afternoon for one night. We didn't have reservations and didn't want to spend all of our time looking for a hotel. The clerk at the front counter was nice, but overloaded with phone calls, which took precedence over a paying customer standing in front of him who needed two rooms. After about 5...

Don't know Marty personally but this man loves the city of Helen! Should be an ambassador for the town! He is so helpful. He will give you maps, highlight what,when, and where of things to do! The hotel is a good price. The rooms are worth a 2 or 3 day trip. I didnt go to stay in my hotel...
