We asked for clean towels but did not get them. We wouldn't have stayed here but we didn't have a...

Do not go here. Period. I accidentally booked into this hotel - Strange statement, but true. I got into this hotel, with my daughter, and she told me this reminded her of hotels in movies where people get killed. I walked into the smoke-smelling room, went directly to the internet to book another room...that was how desperate i was to...

This 2 stars hotel is in a convenience location so you will pay more during the Oktoberfest season. During this time there are a lot of motorcycle activities therefore you will be wake-up early morning with the rattling sound. The room I was had a large TV, microwave and refrigerator. The carpet had some smell to cigarette. Make sure you...

Hotel and rooms are in seriously bad condition, in need of renovation. Toilet paper holder falling out of wall, bathroom walls streaked from moisture, shower curtain mildewed, soft mattresses. Door handle to room worked only after several tries. Ants ! NO WIFI. $50 hotel for over $100/night. BAD DEAL. Staff often absent from front desk.

If possible to stay somewhere else, I would strongly advise it if you want a comfortable and clean stay in Helen, GA. The desk staff came off rude and unprofessional during our stay. They also tried to double charge us by saying they didn't receive payment or that our card was declined. This happened to another group we were with...
