We stayed at the Helendorf for Oktoberfest 2015 and 2016. We've already booked Oktoberfest 2017. The room was very clean. The internet was very slow, but no big deal, I didn't visit Oktoberfest to be on the internet. We did not turn our TV on so I cannot comment on the television or cable service. Great kitchenette with coffee pot...

After spending an unpleasant night at another hotel we decided to move to the Helendorf and we are sure glad we did. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable.

I called on Wednesday to see if they had rooms available. My daughter who is 10 was on Fall Break this week and wanted to do something fun. The lady at the front desk told us they were the only ones who had a closed in heated pool which made me stay at this hotel. We could have stayed anywhere...

We enjoyed our stay at the Helendorf. Yes, it's an older hotel, but in a great location. Room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking the river. We had a standard room but the other couple we traveled with had a suite, and the next time we visit we'll spring for the suite...very nice! Easy walking distance to restaurants,...
