We stayed on the 3rd floor in one of the 'Riverfront Balcony Non-Smoking' rooms with 1 king-size bed, kitchenette and a riverside private balcony. The Inn was situated in the heart of the picturesque Alpine Village of Helen, GA along the Chattahoochee River. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The view from our balcony nice and you can watch...

We are mid sixties and travel extensively. We go through Helen about once a year and stay at the Helendorf Hotel. We got a big surprise this year. The river front rooms have been completely remodeled and they are really nice. We used to make fun of the older decor, but no more!! They are done in creams and blues...

Asking all the right questions. She reserved standard rooms, all on the same floor with a common area balcony for us to gather. All rooms were clean, wonderful bedding, nice tvs,...

Disappointed in this hotel Our room on the ground floor was spacious and clean ,but very difficult to get to, with stairs leading down to the walkway that leads to the rooms. Nice riverside patio and picnic area. White plastic furniture though was a deal breaker. Wooden benches and tables would have fit the theme much better. Check in and...

We found it to be very comfortable and the staff very friendly. Great location. Needs some updating but had a nice time there. No complaints. Sound of water outside from sliding doors was a special treat.

Went to the Helendorf for a girls weekend and was very disappointed. The photos that were on the website were old and the hotel had not been maintained to keep the photos relevant. The room requested was not available upon arrival. The room was out of date and showed signs that proper and constant maintainance wasn't done. We stayed in...

My wife and I went there for our honeymoon in 1999. We were married in February, so when we arrived, we had to whole town basically to our selves.

From the pictures, I was unsure of what to expect. Things looked dark and cold. From the outside that was my same description. Once we got into the room though it was better. The room is older, but still very clean and kept. The little kitchen was plenty sufficient. The best part was the space. Our room balcony overlooked the...
