“Moutain Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Beautiful place right on the river with swings and picnic tables. Friendly, helpful staff. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants in downtown Helen but quiet and away from the traffic. Can't wait to go back!

This motel is not the newest kid on the block. It is a little tired and could use a few touch ups. With that being said, however, it is a good place to stay in Helen that will take you out of the fray. Riverbend is down a little street and sits right on the river. There are porch swings, picnic tables, and a bench that you can use to watch the action on the Chatahoochie River. I didn't know this river was so popular for tubing but I quickly learned that tubing is a major attraction in Helen. After hiking several miles, it was refreshing to sit with our feet in the river and watch the constant parade. The staff at the motel is exceptionally friendly with information about where to eat (and where not to). Breakfast is served daily. If we ever return to Helen, we will stay here again.

Room Tip: Get as close to the river as you can. There is no elevator so be prepared to carry luggage up the st...

Newly remodeled with beautiful rooms, this motel has comfort, beauty and desireability. Close enough to Helen to walk but away from the crowds. Since it faces the Chattahoochee I was able to watch the tubers having lots of fun. I saw a man fly fishing and one panning for gold or gems. Customer service is their number 1 priority. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. The rooms were very clean and quiet. I will definitely stay there again and again.

Staff is friendly, helpful and they are very flexible in allowing us to park our motorcycles right by the ramp to our rooms! Manager recommended local restaurants and had discount coupons and maps handy. He was also a great source of information on where we could ride our motorcycles for the best "twisty" roads and where to stop and eat on the rides.

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room - they are very accommodating - they also have adjoining rooms that open u...

This hotel was the perfect price and perfect location!! It was quiet and a great getaway. It's right on the river and they have cute swing benches to sit on by the river. It is just a minute walk from main street. Beds were comfy!! The service was wonderful!!!! I will be back!!!
