Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our first visit to the area, came thru for fly fishing in SC n found this hotel. Really enjoy our stay, we greeted very well during check-in so first great impression. The free breakfast are better despite the pandemic, more variety n selection, safe individually wrapped items. The surrounding area so clean n safe, cute town to explore w local wineries, art stores, restaurants etc. We travel around the world n Marriott hotels are always our first choice because we value and appreciate the quality, cleanliness, and customer service that Marriott hotels emphasize by founder JW Marriott.Marriott hotels are our family home away from home. Keep up the good work to Fairfield Inn team in Helen, GA, we appreciate the team in providing these services as front lines during these pandemic and stay strong to this industry's survival. We hope this positive online review help travelers in consideration finding a quality accommodation.

During this uncertain time I felt safe staying here. Very clean, professional, and friendly staff. Everything is new which is a major bonus. They had prepackaged items for breakfast and sanitizing stations throughout.

The best ADA accessible room I have been in for a LOOOOONG time. Staff are indescribably benevolent.

Even with COVID all around us. This property made sure high touch areas were sanitized, and we had everything we needed.

The hotel is a little out of the center of town nevertheless it didn’t bother us we drove to the center. It offers ample self parking and cleanliness is top notch. They offer a very good complementary breakfast with lots of choices. Checking in was a breeze the young man at the front desk was very efficient and accommodating. Our room was not quite ready yet and he asked us to wait just a few minutes and soon we were in.

This is a nice, new, clean, efficient place to stay. You are about a 1/2 mile from downtown Helen. To keep the traffic noise down in your room ask for a higher room number as in-- 122 or 315. The 102 and 202 numbers are on the end closest to the road. The views of the town and mountains at night are wonderful from the upper room floors! They have some better breakfast offerings in this Covid restricted time. You can have a microwaved hot sausage biscuit. And I appreciated the windows in the room would open some to hear the mountain sounds and feel the mountain air.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while taking in Helen and other neighboring attractions. The hotel is easily accessible from the main road and is within walking/driving distance of many local establishments. Our room was located on the second floor of the back side of the hotel and was very quiet. It featured a long hallway that led into the bed area, along with a modern and spacious bathroom. The shower is walk-in and provides gel, conditioner, and shampoo. You'll find it is very spacious. The hotel also features a large lobby area and eating area, along with a sizeable workout room (take advantage of the water station to fill up your water bottles for the day). The staff was extremely customer service focused and greeted us often on our way in and out of the hotel. We appreciated that! A small concern was the breakfast choices. It didn't measure up with other Fairfields we've stayed at; that could be because of supply-chain issues, but it was adequate. We would also suggest the garbage in the breakfast area be changed regularly as at times it was overflowing and the guests weren't sure where to go with their cups/plates. Otherwise, we were very pleased with this hotel, would recommend it to others, and would return again if we are in the area.

The Fairfield Inn in Helen was a good place to stay if you wanted to visit the Bavarian town of Helen or if, as we were, you are traveling between various points in northern Georgia. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the location was good. There was lots of room for wrangling luggage—a nice sturdy low counter that fit two carry-on size suitcases and a large toiletries case. This gave us easy access to everything without taking up any floor space. In addition, the bathroom had sufficient counter space for setting out toiletries, the shower had good water pressure, and the space was clean. There was a very small closet for hanging items.

Breakfast: Typical Fairfield Inn. Eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, bread/pastries/bagels, fruit, etc.

Noise: The hotel was very quiet. We never heard a noise either inside or out.

Temperature: The heat/AC unit was thermostat-controlled and ran smoothly with no annoying clanks when the fan turned on and off.

Location: A good location for visiting the town of Helen. If you are OK walking half a mile or so, you can easily walk to the center of town and the shops and restaurants. There are good sidewalks all the way, and crosswalks warn drivers to stop for pedestrians.

The drawbacks were as follows.
• Pillows that flattened the instant we placed our heads on them, although, to be fair, this seems to be pretty typical of hotels.
• The sheets had a very flowery smell, which lingered the whole night.
• The room-darkening curtains had a gap in the middle just enough to let light in. It didn’t affect us since the sun wasn’t up until almost 8 AM, but in the summer, I suspect it would be quite annoying.
• The alarm clock had a nightlight below. This could be turned off, but it automatically turned itself back on each night.
• The couch was fairly uncomfortable.
• All the lighting was ambient light, so there wasn’t really anywhere to sit and read a book.
• There was nowhere in the bathroom to hang towels for reuse.
• The toilet paper holder was quite odd—two metal levers that did not meet in the middle. Since today’s toilet paper rolls are narrower than in the past, this meant that the roll was always getting stuck on the end of one of those levers and then refusing to unroll.

Like others, I booked a room in this hotel in October for a stay starting December 23rd. At that time the website said the hotel was opening in November. Upon arriving I can confirm that this hotel is nowhere near being ready for its now advertised January 2020 opening and certainly not our Dec check in day. At no time did anyone contact me to say the hotel would not be opening for my stay.

When I called Marriott, they (like me) were unable to reach anyone at the phone number listed for the hotel and since they don’t have any other nearby hotels, we ended up in the Holiday Inn Express. Luckily, we didn’t attempt a check in and Marriott was able to cancel my stay without charging me. Marriott corporate said that in cases like this the new hotel management should have contacted potential customers in advance and cancelled reservations. Looks like “management” at this hotel may already need to be replaced.

This hotel is on the south side of Helen; one can walk into Helen along the road on a side walk but it is at least 15 minutes. The hotel is nice, we had a room with a sitting area. The bathroom is roomy which is nice. The complimentary breakfast also serves hot food (eggs, omelets, cereal) and everything was good. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was not busy since this is the slow season for Helen. No room cleaning is provided when staying longer then ane day. Towels and additional toiletries are provided upon request. The room has a fridge and microwave.

We were staying in Helen for a week and chose Fairfield...always happy....and this time was no acceptation. Nice fairly new hotel.Things are just getting back up to almost normal from the pandemic so breakfast was limited during the week but full up with hot items on the weekends. Housekeeping had to be requested which really wasn't a problem. The only major con we had was the location, up on a hill, looking down on one end of the town, unfortunately that was not the main center of town and a bit of a walk was needed to get there. We probably would not stay there again but would chose a place more centrally located. But overall a nice stay.

Is this hotel open?
Answer from Chris J

It cannot be booked via the Marriott website and has a “opens June 2020” text on the listing, but it said opens in Nov 2019 when I booked a Dec 2019 stay. I would definitely call Marriott or the hotel itself before booking. If the hotel doesn’t pickup then assume not open.
