Ok place but is too small and needs updates. Not my first choice of stay, nor second. Location is typical for Helen. Also, asked for one type of room, got another without explanation. Staff ok. Next time in helen, will book somewhere else.

If you are a high end traveler this is not the hotel for you, but for the price I paid it is probably a reasonable option. Our room was two fairly large rooms. The living room had a table, couch, chair and a fireplace. It also had a piece of furniture with a small refrigerator and microwave. The furniture in the room was cheap and old, but clean. The dresser in the bedroom was cheap and pretty battered. The carpet was tattered at the entrance to the bathroom. Curtains were very inexpensive. The bathroom was old, but clean. Formica countertop, an old soap and toothbrush holder on the wall, the commode seat was deteriorating and a handy plunger was behind it. The tub was a plastic enclosure, clean, but the non-slip mat made me worry about foot fungus lingering from a past guest.
The hotel is quite obviously owned by a family who apparently live on the premises.
Wifi did not work in the room we were in. I think the wifi router is in the office. If you want wifi you need to be near the office. I was unable of any food being available in the facility. There is a grocery store immediately across the street.
Bottom line, cheap in all respects but reasonably clean.

Room Tip: If you want wifi get a room close to the office.

Everyone there was pleasant and helpful. We booked online but next time we will book ourselves. The place has been totally redone in the past several years and it's just lovely. Right smack dab in the middle of Helen but on top of a steep hill which I just loved. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: No swimming pool and no fitness center that I found

As you pull into the Heidi Motel in Helen, GA. the first thing you can't help but notice is the beautiful landscaping on the driveway up to the large Windmill Themed establishment. We stayed in room #12. It was right in the middle and we had no problem with sounds from other guests at all. We could here the people walking above us but it was never a nuisance.

One of our favorite things was the distance to downtown. It was a wonderful stroll into the city. You can't go wrong staying here. A perfect economical price in a great location.

The best place we've stayed in Helen and we come every year. The rooms are very clean. The linens are soft and even smell like Downey softner. The owner was friendly, helpful and very hands on. The property is well maintained and beautifully landscaped. On the main street were you can walk to everything in town.
We highly recommend the Heidi motel.
Just look for the huge windmill in the hill.

My friends and I stayed here during the Southern Worthersee event. We had an incredible time. The staff was very pleasant to talk to and they did whatever they could to make us all very comfortable and welcome. We were very impressed with the comfort level of the rooms and were very happy with their cleanliness as well as that of the property. We would reccomend that anyone visiting in the area stay here. Worth every single penny.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable and the suites are HUGE.

The Heidi motel is located in down town and is one of the most Photographed building in Helen, GA and is one of the landmarks to the town and also are currently the only Motel in this area that you can actually stay in a windmill. We do not do a Breakfast due to the fact that we are across from Bettys country store and 2 buildings down from Hoffers Bakery which we recommend to all our guest to go for a great German breakfast and lunch. We have no pool due to the fact that we are so close to the river and that there are 2 water parks in town. We are American owned and operated and live on site. We work very hard to make your stay great and really appreciate your business. Thanks Chad Jackson ... more   less
