Though the exterior looked dated, we were pleasantly surprised at the updated rooms- wow! Like a hotel interior- nice hotel! The motel is right on the river and you can walk down and let your kids skip stones while you swing on the bench swings. Great for early morning meditation too. Friendly staff offered lots of in the area recommendations that made our trip even better. Would definitely stay here again.

First off for the few negative posters that are use to a Wyndham property when you rent these rooms/cabins you are paying to literally be staying the Chattahoochee river. Also, when you leave the front of the property you walk right into the middle of town! The cottages are a bit dated so yes the door trim might not match perfectly to the wall or the refrigerator is old and it's shelves are cracked. But everything works! Oven, stove, fridge, TV's, AC, showers all work. Also, it is the halfway point when you tube so when you pass the property you have a perfect pit stop to visit the bathroom or re-beverage. Mark is a gracious host and will take care of you! If you need gold trim and cold champagne on the night stand you don't even belong in Helen.

Also, I have only stayed in the cabins but if you plan on cooking at the cabin bring your own pots, pans, etc. People tend to steal the kitchen accessories the management stocks them with.

Room Tip: Cabins 7 and 8 are the most secluded and close to the river...

this week was our first trip to Helen, ga. we were on our yearly motorcycle trip and due to weather plans were changed. A family member referred the town and we stumbled into this place by accident. we loved it. Mark was so helpful. Gave us the key to a cabin and said here you go, you go look if you like it come back up and pay. We looked We paid. he then called after to make sure we were pleased. He referred us to some nice riding and restaurants. The center of town was an easy walk without worrying about parking and while you are close to everything, you can go back to cabin and be peaceful. It is right on the water and we sat in the swings at night. Cabin was clean with really more room then we needed. will definitely go back, wish it was closer to home (ohio) would make a nice wkend trip

Could not ask for a better welcome! Room was very clean and bed slept great. Floor looked new and well kept. Mark was very informative and helpful and cared about if everything was good. The view of the river was awesome and very relaxing. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Upper floors give a much better view of the river.

We just returned from a mini-vacation in Helen where my wife and I and stayed 3 nights at the Riverbend. The rooms were clean and well kept. The facility is in a convenient location, being only a short walk from downtown Helen and all the shops and restaurants. I can't say enough about the staff, especially Mark, the hotel manager. He was cordial, courteous and helpful - just an awesome individual. Always willing to drop whatever he was doing to listen. It was pleasant to be able to look out the window of our room and see the Chattahoochee river. The facility has picnic tables, benches, and barbeque grills right on the river bank. We spent many an hour sitting on a swing, just talking, relaxing and watching the tubers go by. We've been to Helen several times and I'll have to say this was our favorite place to stay. We'll definitely stay here next time we visit.

Room Tip: As you further away from the office, the closer you are to the river.

A modest motel in a great location! Short walk to almost everything in Helen. We loved the swings on the river and sat there every evening. Mark was helpful and had great suggestions for places to eat. Good value for everything that you get :) ...........................
