I felt right at home! Mark is the best host I have encountered in a long time. Our stay was wonderful, the location is excellent. I love the view of the river out of our room and without a doubt we will be returning.

We stayed at this lovely hotel just 2 short blocks from downtown, no need to worry about finding street parking. The rooms are clean and well appointed and are currently being upgraded room by room.
There is a continental breakfast and wifi.
It is situated on the bend in the river is adjacent to which is a lovely serene place to sit and unwind in the evening. Or watch the tubers going by on this natural lazy river. Yes there is a river you can tube on slow and gentle.
The owner and staff are the best. We were even allowed to leave our car and trailer there as we rode our Harley-Davidson to another city, and pick it up a day later.
If you like a peaceful relaxing hotel close to the attractions, this is it.
Enjoy Helen Ga, it is a quaint Bavarian village of shops and restaurants and friendly people.

Right on the river me and my family just stayed 2 nights and it was excellent. Clean rooms, great staff owner very friendly. It is pet friendly as well. Conveinent to everything. River a couple steps out the door and grills and benches set up. Close to everything, closer to river than all others. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Rooms are great have been remodeled and are very nice. We enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely stay there upon going back to Helen.

Room Tip: Believe all room to be excellent and the location close to the river as in walking out the door I ha...

Original motel is definitely quite old. Management has done a great job fixing it up. We did not give a five star because there is no clock in the room, the phone is circa 1980, and the built in hair dryer wouldn't run on high without shorting the system. Managament is very friendly and helpful, location is right on the river and an easy walk to all the shops. Beds were comfortable, and the price can't be beat!

Mark was such a help to us senior citizens who wanted a nice place to chill out by the river. Mark guided us to a great restaurant as well as other neat places to go to. We so enjoyed watching the folks tubing by us as we sat at a table provided by Riverbend Motel and enjoyed our picnic lunch. Next trip WE will be doing tubing down the river! And we plan to bring more folks and stay at Riverbend Motel again. Mark, thanks for your great service, reasonable rates and the kind help you extended to us ladies. Your staff were wonderful to us too. We'll be back!!! Donna S- Ooltewah, TN

Room Tip: Just ask for the kind of room you want. We wanted a good view of the river and we got it.
