“Hilltop getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The Heidi Motel was a great place to stay. Easy walk to the bustling strip of town that is Downtown Helen. A word of caution though, if you have trouble with stairs, make sure you request 1st floor accommodations, there is no elevator. The view from the 2nd floor is worth the hassle of the 2 flights of stairs with luggage. Rooms are clean and the bed comfortable.

A friend and I recently stayed at the Heidi Motel in Helen for two nights before hiking part of the Appalachian Trail. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Due to weather, we had to cancel and add on reservations and they were nothing but pleasant throughout this process. The room was clean and pretty standard. Location is perfect, within walking distance of anything you would want to check out in Helen. They also allowed us to shower, for a fee, when we returned from the trail even though we were not staying with them that evening. I highly recommend checking the Heidi Motel out.

we just spent the night in room 30 under the windmill. when we got there you were very welcoming. the room was ready earlier then expected.when we entered the room there were fresh rose petals on the king bed,hand dipped chocolates and a scented candle on the dresser (VERY ROMANTIC). the room was completely spotless and perfect in every way the office gave us suggestions about where to eat and what to see while we were there. our experience could not have been nicer.

Room Tip: be ready to relax. easy to find, easy to park, 1 block away form the center of the most adorable tow...

Great Staff, very clean. Short walk to shops and hiking trails. Parking available. Plan on going back and staying there. The price is great. Not much of a breakfast but no big deal since the wonderful eatery's near the hotel which made the experience of the town that much better.

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?

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.
