“River View peacefulness”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

What a great place to stay in Helen Georgia. one block away from the store and the the main drag. On the river. Very reasonable pricing and extraordinary service and friendliness of staff. 10+ The breakfast alone was worth the stay. Belgian Waffels and Maple Bacon, real oatmeal with fixings. Fresh Fruit, eggs, fresh biscuits..... OMG YUM

Very pleasant, well located hotel in Bavarian Helen, GA. Staff was very friendly and courteous, room was very comfortable with a great view of the Chattahoochee River from the roomy balcony. Parking was mostly covered and convenient with a handy elevator to the lobby and upper floors. Very much recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Helen.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are very pleasant if you care at all about that sort of thing.

Not only is the location of this property ideal for someone looking to shop around Helen, but the staff here are just wonderful! GM Damoni Craig really knows how to take care of her guests. The rooms were clean and we had a great view of the Chattahoochee River. I definitely recommend staying at this hotel

This is a pleasant hotel in the campy North Georgia town of Helen. The Hampton Inn looks Bavarian on the outside, but looks like a regular inn on the inside. The breakfast "bagel toppers" were a good variation on the usual breakfast fare. Ask for a room overlooking the Chatahoochee River, then walk up the hill to the main street for a beer along the river.

We didn't have much luck here although the desk staff was very courteous, housekeeping skipped our room one day, bathroom was never cleaned, only one roll of toilet paper, fresh sheets were not put on the bed every day (one of Hampton Inns guarantees). It was particularly disappointing that the complimentary breakfast was not up to par with other Hampton Inns with limited fresh fruit (and not really fresh at that!), and the cannned fruit they set out in a bowl was sour...so clearly used and reused. Interesting that many reviews claim this hotel was recently updated. I can't imagine what it was like prior to the update. My husband was particularly concerned about the possible mold being blown into the room by the window fan which was full of water on the outside. You could just hear all moisture in it while sitting on the balcony. That is a health issue.

We came to the Destination Helen Bike rally and had rain the hole time, but this was ok for us because we really had everything we needed at the Hampton Inn. Cover for the bikes. Breakfast. Riverfront off the Balcony. Great service and a place to get out of the rain and still be outside.

We stayed here for 3 days, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were spacious, and the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Helen, GA is designed to look like a German Alps village so the building architecture is different but not unacceptable. The beds were comfortable and the fridge and microwave worked fine. Only two complaints...you could hear screaming young children in other rooms, which is not the hotel's fault, but the parents, and 2. the breakfast, while hot and full, did not have bacon. We are not sausage folks, so we skipped out to the many great restaurants in Helen.
All in all, we would stay here again. It was a very nice experience.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor room with the whirlpool. You will be glad you did!!
