For a budget motel the room was fine. Breakfast was better than most budget motels. It was centrally located to town. It had a nice clean pool that was open till midnight. The staff were friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: budget friendly

The room was very clean.. the front desk was very welcoming. The breakfast was decent.. very safe area and walking distance from downtown area. I chose a non-smoking room and it had a nice smell. I would definitely stay here again when we return back to Helen, Ga.

I booked this hotel online because of the terrarium styled covered pool and its location in the middle of the town. BAD CHOICE!!!

We spent the extra money to get a suite with Jacuzzi and fireplace. It was horrible!!! Upon opening the door, the cigarette smoke was overwhelming. I could taste the smoke in my mouth...GROSS!!! The Jacuzzi was ANCIENT-a brownish yellowish old material!!! The bed was bad, the carpet and bedspread had burn holes, there was a beer can on the private balcony and there were PILES of bird #&*^ in the stairway, since there was not an elevator. AND SOMEONE had flicked cigarette ashes in the air conditioner vents...WTH? What a disappointment!!! So I had to request a refund and find another room for the night. And this hotel was sold out!!! So Sad. But Germany did win the 2014 FIFA World Cup this weekend, tho!!! JAWOHL!!!

We booked the "family Suite" for our family of 4 on a 3 day/ 2 night vacation in Helen. First, the Motel itself is just plain cute! Our room was two rooms converted into a suite. It has one king and two double beds, two bathrooms ( one is handicapped accessible), two tables/ 4 chairs, two ac/ heater units, two TV's (one in each "bedroom"), a refrigerator and microwave. The downside is that the bedrooms cannot be separated, folding doors or even a curtain would be great for privacy! The nightstand from between the double beds is used as a TV stand so you have nothing to set your phone or alarm clock on. The room is very clean and the staff is extremely knowledgeable of the area and friendly. Breakfast was good, they serve the usual cereals/ instant grits and oatmeal but also frozen ham/egg/cheese biscuits as well as danishes. The kids have enjoyed the pool and it hasn't been crowded. The water is very cloudy though but seems clean and they keep the pool area (inside and outside deck) very clean. I would recommend this motel to others based on my experience, and would definitely stay here again with my family.

My cousin and I decided to take our kids on a mini vacation. We took the kids to Cabbage Patch in Cleveland before arriving in Helen. Check in wasn't until 3, but we were allowed to check in early bc our room was available. The day/night staff was very friendly. Our room was a familly room 1 king 2 dbl 2 bath. The room had a terrible smell, not the smell of cigerette smoke, but old moldy mildew carpet. We had to kill a roach that was on the bathroom wall and the gnats and flies were nerve wrecking. Bring cleaning supplies and Lysol. The TV's are old so cancel that if you're looking to unwind after a long day. The "indoor" seasonal pool is a joke. Its like walking into a sauna and the ventaltion is terrible. The doors are bolted shut so forget air circulation. The pool is very small so I hope you have some people skills bc you and the other vacations will be very friendly. We only stayed for one so I sucked it up, but if you want to have a nice vacation spend the extra money and stay anywhere else. The only other good thing about this hotel other than the staff was the location, its in walking distance to everything.

Location is the biggest plus. A short walk to the downtown shops, restaurants, bars and attractions. Our room was clean, but the bedding and towels were well worn. I suggest that housekeeping keep the doors closed when cleaning. Our room was full of flies that were bothersome throughout our stay. We killed many, but couldn't get them all. A so-so stay, but about as reasonably priced as you will find.

This was one of two locations in Helen that allow pets. We had a king size bed room that was very nice. We had a wonderful lady who checked us in and even offered to babysit our 4.5 lb. chihuahua. Lol The room was clean, had soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, coffeemaker and coffee. They had a pool, however we did not get a chance to use it as we only stayed one night. Their printer was messed up so we had to get a handwritten receipt the next morning. They did have a continental breakfast of sorts, however we just got coffee and we were off to new adventures. Coffee was not very good. We would stay here again.
