The owner personally showed me the room before I accepted it. He wanted to make sure it was up to my standards and expectations. I'd made reservations and had noted that I have a service dog. He made sure that my room was just off the ramp from the parking lot. I can walk short distances and this made a... More

My wife and I wanted to take a quick mid-week break in Helen. We decided to stay at The Riverbend Motel based on it's ranking in TripAdvisor; we were not disappointed. It is a rustic looking motel literally on the river's bend. The King room we had looked like it had been recently updated. The laminate wood floors looked nice,... More

We had a chalet with balcony overlooking the river. Walked into Helen several times which suited us rather than driving. Check in was smooth and we were given good dining recommendations. Enjoyed watching the tubers float by, sitting on a riverside swing

Stayed in one of the cabins on the river and it met every one of our wants. To stand on the deck over looking the river and listing to the water is a soothing experience.The cabins have been there for a long time and that is what's make them special. Yes they have some scars but the scars are made... More

Manager took the time to show us different rooms, views, and different bed firmness levels. Offered excellent sightseeing and dining recommendations. We found them all to be very good. River access was also excellent and very relaxing. Rooms seemed to have been fairly recently updated, however exterior cosmetics were well worn. I believe housekeeping/maintainence staff my have been under-staffed. Rates... More
