The helendorf is central to everywhere, set on the lovely river, staff are very attentive, rooms are cute like stepping in to a bavarian chalet room but aged, bathrooms need updating, parking is free so a bonus, WiFi is awful, it's there but needs a booster, my friends room had it, I didn't unless I stood on my left leg...

The new décor is beautiful! The price is fantastic! We are hoping to go back for Fasching in February. We always stay in the 700's which is away from the river. We have stayed in a river room and they are great but any sound of water and bathroom here I come...lol. My mother and brother were in a pet...

I absolutely love this inn. The building is old but has much character. The murals on the building are beautiful. The setting is on the river and there are many sitting areas to choose from to simply enjoy the sounds of the passing water. The rooms are huge and the bathrooms are large. As I said before...it is an older...

Don't let the exterior and old school room key fool you, the rooms are clean and up to date! Great place to stay if you want to enjoy downtown Helen, can walk to anything! Staff is very welcoming, and the river front rooms gave great views!

We stayed on the 3rd floor in one of the 'Riverfront Balcony Non-Smoking' rooms with 1 king-size bed, kitchenette and a riverside private balcony. The Inn was situated in the heart of the picturesque Alpine Village of Helen, GA along the Chattahoochee River. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The view from our balcony nice and you can watch...

We are mid sixties and travel extensively. We go through Helen about once a year and stay at the Helendorf Hotel. We got a big surprise this year. The river front rooms have been completely remodeled and they are really nice. We used to make fun of the older decor, but no more!! They are done in creams and blues...

Asking all the right questions. She reserved standard rooms, all on the same floor with a common area balcony for us to gather. All rooms were clean, wonderful bedding, nice tvs,...

Disappointed in this hotel Our room on the ground floor was spacious and clean ,but very difficult to get to, with stairs leading down to the walkway that leads to the rooms. Nice riverside patio and picnic area. White plastic furniture though was a deal breaker. Wooden benches and tables would have fit the theme much better. Check in and...

We found it to be very comfortable and the staff very friendly. Great location. Needs some updating but had a nice time there. No complaints. Sound of water outside from sliding doors was a special treat.

Went to the Helendorf for a girls weekend and was very disappointed. The photos that were on the website were old and the hotel had not been maintained to keep the photos relevant. The room requested was not available upon arrival. The room was out of date and showed signs that proper and constant maintainance wasn't done. We stayed in...
