Reviewed 17 June 2014

Very nice and relaxing place to stay. Walking distance to everything. Very comfortable beds and the Riverveiw is awesome. The staff is excellent. We will be booking there again. We were there during Octoberfest and still the atopmosher was very pleasant and quiet.

Love this place! It is a perfect location by the river and close to everything! The rooms are newly renovated and look amazing. The staff is always friendly and personable. It is a great experience every time I stay here and I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Helen!

This is our second visit to the Helendorf and will not be our last. We had a third floor balcony room the seemed to be newly remodeled. We had a kitchenette and lots of space. Problems were small like getting the soap replaced in our room and the hair dryer kept tripping off and wouldn't start back up, I guess the main problem was that when we arrived, around 1pm the front desk let us go ahead and check in but rooms weren't ready so we were told to return at 3pm. When I went back at 3pm I was told the room still wasn't ready when I was seeing that people that just pulled up were being handed their room keys. We had traveled from Charleston SC and were hot and tired. I was told they could not give me a time on when it would be ready but they could guess 30 minutes. I waited around and about 3:40 our room was ready. That was really the only wrinkle to our stay and it would not keep me from coming back . We are already planning our 2015 stay.

Room Tip: You really don't get a room choice other that balcony or not. Choose the balcony rooms, they ar...

I'm really glad we decided to stay at this hotel. It is in a great location and within walking distance to everything in Helen. The rooms have all been newly renovated...very comfortable beds. I loved our view from the balcony along the river. It was so nice to sit out there and watch the river tubers go by. This is the place to go to relax!

Room Tip: If you want a nice view. Be sure to request a room with a balcony along the river.

The Helendorf continues to improve its facilities with upgrades ... Beautiful paver patios and steps to the river, new carpet and furniture in the rooms, new bathrooms, etc. The rooms are spacious and quiet, and the beds/pillows are very comfortable. The parking is adequate, and the ice machines produce an abundance of ice! The staff is great ... Making every effort to satisfy its visitors. I highly recommend the Helendorf when you visit Helen, GA ... A small Alpine-themed village in the north Georgia mountains.

Room Tip: They have rooms with balconies that overlook the Chattahoochee River flowing right next to the hotel...

The newly renovated rooms are lovely!! The staff are very friendly and helpful. Check in was very easy. The new lobby is beautiful with an fresh apple available. The hotel is on the river. The newly renovated patio next to the river is a great place to sit and relax. The hotel is also close to good food options and walking distance to shopping. A must in Helen!

Room Tip: River room worth the extra money.

We were luck find a river balcony room during the balloon festival.
Room was comfortable and what looked like recent interior updates to the bath were well did. Room was clean and well kept,chairs, carpet and bedding looked good, pool and area was well kept.
We really enjoyed our balcony overlooking the river the landscaping along the river and walkway pavers looked really nice.
Only disappointment was the wifi did not reach our room.
Will be happy to stay there again.
