This motel was great. We got there a little early. Check in was around four. We asked the manager if we could check in early and he made it happen. We walked the super short walk to the shops, ate some lunch and looked around. We got back around 1:00-1:30 pm and our room was ready.

If you are looking at this motel and expecting the Ritz, keep looking. This place has charm and is cozy. Usually "cozy" equates to small and cramped. My husband, two kids (9 &10) and I had more than enough room. The room was clean, the AC/heater worked, the shower had good pressure and hot water. My husband's only complaint was the bed was too soft for him. I thought it was perfect.

There is no breakfast and there is no pool. Those weren't things that we were looking for, so it didn't make a difference to us. The management was great and the room was comfortable, clean and inexpensive, and the location was awesome.

Checked in last weekend for a much needed three day break with the bf. It was off season but there were still a number of cars in the lot so we were surprised at how quiet it was when it was time to sleep. Owners Chad and Tyanna were very nice and we were DELIGHTED to find that our room was clean with a lovely firm bed, fridge and microwave and blow dryer. Do I need to say again how CLEAN it was? And the best part? After a long day of hiking challenging trails at Anna Ruby Falls, their super hot shower with awesome pressure (fan included in the bathroom) was just what the Dr. ordered to unknot all those muscles. It's also centrally located and within walking distance to everything. Park your car and leave it. You do have to go to the front desk to get ice which the bf thought was odd but since we both work in restaurants we understood the cost of folks who think things like ice machines are free and it wasn't a hassle at all. Free Wifi that worked, a great location a non noisy AC system that worked well, and nice owners. Really what more could you ask for?

Room Tip: We stayed in #23 which was on the end and I am a light sleeper who wasn't disturbed once by peop...

My boyfriend chose this hotel for our Valentine's trip, and at first I was not on board with his decision. But after meeting the friendly, down to earth staff and seeing the nicely decorated, clean rooms, I was more than happy with the choice. In addition to the amenities and welcoming staff, this hotel is in a great location! We went to Faschingsverein and were able to walk back in less than ten minutes. This would be a great place for anyone hoping to go to Oktoberfest or other events, or to simply relax and enjoy the area.

Bravo! Great location to downtown Helen and great rates!!! Room 11 was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful owners... ask them where to go. Go to "Dukes" for gem mining and "Wendell's" for breakfast. Be sure to sign the guest book in the room!

Great place to stay in Helen and a great value. Very close to downtown Helen. It was close enough that we didn't use our car during the entire stay. Easy walking distance. The staff was also very helpful pointing out attractions to see while in Helen.

Very clean and cute hotel. The hotel owner worked hard to give us a clean room and great stay, and even had a pack-n-play clean and ready for our baby. I was impressed with how neat and clean it was. Prices were great, and you get the best view in Helen because the motel is up on a hill!
Clearly the people who wrote the 1 star reviews on this site are pompous, spoiled jerks who can't appreciate a family-run small business. Yes, he does live with his family in the back, and his kids were there playing, but obviously he was working hard for his family. If you can't appreciate such work ethic, then you are in the wrong place. If you are seeking a 5-star resort quality hotel, then you probably just shouldn't be visiting Helen, GA to begin with. I enjoyed my stay immensely and would definitely go back!
