We came calling it a motel and left calling it our home. Everything you could want to see is no more than a leasurly stroll from your room and the staff you always got a warm and friendly vibe from. I walked in and within 30 seconds me and the front desk manager were yucking it up and gathering local tricks, he even recommended that we book directly with them so he could charge us 15 bucks less. (We used booking.com) if he passed you in the hall he would ask how your trip was going and if the room was satisfactory. Which by the way is one of the most surprising things about the whole trip. When you here motel you think run down and ill kept however we never expected the rooms would be so clean and well equipped for the price. Mini fridge and micro wave plus a shower/tub with a heat bulb and timer. The sink was lower than standard but had a built in hairdryer. Beds were comfy and remaid every day. Our personal effects were barely disturbed during the cleaning process and handled with care. I'll end it here but I really can't say enough about this place. I want to live there!!!

This was our first time at this hotel and Mark the owner said I could look at the room before I paid.
Could not believe that,very impressed! The beds were very comfortable and room was very clean.
The only thing I would have said could have been better was the breakfast as we had our grandchild with us and we had to go out to breakfast. Maybe if there was some cold cereal that
would have done the trick. This however was not Mark's fault. He even called me after we left to
make sure we were satisfied and we were.
Never change your attitude Mark,thanks

We stopped over in Helen for one night on the way to our cabin. We arrived in Helen early, around noon, so we checked with the motel to see how early we could check in. To our surprise Mark allowed us to check in early which gave us time to check Helen out and stroll around for a while. Mark and his staff were very friendly and continued to check on us to make sure we everything was ok. The motel sits right on the river and is an easy walk to town. Hospitality is alive and well at Riverbend and when we get back to Helen we will definitely be making our reservation at Riverbend.
