Stayed in room 41 which was on the second floor of the windmill. Clean, gas fireplace, small kitchen area with refrigerator and microwave. Staff was friendly. Visited the nearby Habersham Winery visited at Christmas and the lights were very pretty.

We were scheduled to stay here for our honeymoon. But with the wildfires that were all aroundwe decided to go somewhere else. You see, I have health issues and the smoke would send me to the hospital. I called and spoke with the office many times prior to our cancellation about my concerns. They charged my account anyway.

The room was everything I expected once again. The hot tub was very nice at the end of the day after being in the very cold wind. It is close to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

If you come to Helen you have to stay in the windmill! They motel is super cute, great location and friendly staff. My only complaint is the people above us were super loud. Get a room above if available.

If you're going to a quaint little German town, during Octoberfest, you've got to stay in a windmill, right? We ended up not staying in the windmill though. Unfortunately, it was booked, but we enjoyed our room on the ground level and was able to park right outside the door. This motel is super cute on the outside, traditional German,... More

This very clean hotel was located at one end of this tourist town. Very responsive front desk staff that was kind enough to also provide us with a military discount off their published web rate. The hotel was located right across the street from Betty's Country Store (groceries) and was a convenient starting point to explore the town. The room... More

Check-in went smooth and staff was very friendly. It is an American owned facility, which is always a plus in my opinion. Room was located upstairs. There are no elevators on the premise so if you're handicapped, you'll need to request downstairs room. Room was very dated. Old looking carpet and bed linens. Wife pulled back comforter and found linens... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Heidi motel is located in down town and is one of the most Photographed building in Helen, GA and is one of the landmarks to the town and also are currently the only Motel in this area that you can actually stay in a windmill. We do not do a Breakfast due to the fact that we are across from Bettys country store and 2 buildings down from Hoffers Bakery which we recommend to all our guest to go for a great German breakfast and lunch. We have no pool due to the fact that we are so close to the river and that there are 2 water parks in town. We are American owned and operated and live on site. We work very hard to make your stay great and really appreciate your business. Thanks Chad Jackson ... more   less
