“Peaceful Place”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I love the location of this motel. It is on the river. We enjoyed just sitting by the river relaxing. We even had a picnic there. Another great feature is the owner. He really cares about your needs and maintains the place very well. It is an older motel but it is tastefully updated. Next time we come, we're planning on staying in one of the cabins with the Jacuzzi

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights at River Bend. It is such a short walk to town and yet so quiet and serene. I loved sitting in the swings and listening to the water. The location, cleanliness of the rooms, and rates cannot be beat. Check the others out and you will go right back to River Bend. Mark, the manager, makes his guest feel very welcomed. I can't wait to go back. Glenda Chatham Morrow

Nice motel with very friendly management and very knowledgeable of the area. I will carry my family back again they really enjoyed it. The motel sits in the middle of Helen very short walk to downtown Helen. The horse and buggy rides are right around the corner.

Room Tip: All rooms are river view

My wife, sister and Brother-in-law and I Visited Helen Ga. May 4-6 Staying at the River Bend Motel and Cabins. This was a really nice place to stay, It's located right on the Chattahoochee River, This part of the Chattahoochee is only about 40 to 50 ft wide. There were people fishing in the river everyday and were catching there limit. Mark the Owner was as friendly a owner as I've ever met. The rooms were big and the beds were as good as I've sleep in. Don't know why Booking.com has them located 1/5 mile from the river, because River Bend is located right on the river, pothers listen as on the river were not, Guess they were paying Booking.com to say they were, Any way I would recommend River Bend Motel and Cabins to anyone and if you call Mark you might get a better deal that you would through any of the Booking sites. Oh yes. The Cabins looked great, next time I think we'll stay in them. Thank you Mark for a most memorable stay at your place, We will be back. Sammy and Annette

As always my trip to Helen was over the top. I have stayed at the same motel for 18 years. Riverbends owner Mark and his wife and staff always go above and beyond to make our stay excellent, Mr. and mrs. Wetherbee

If you are looking for a relaxing place it is here. The managers were very helpful and nice to talk to. Everything in town was within walking distance. The water beside the motel was so relaxing. There are several swings to sit and enjoy the scenery. We already made plans to return in July. Overall it was great.
