Let me start off by saying that my wife and I are fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit. We are not by any stretch "hotel snobs". We typically stay at budget type hotels and all we really expect is a safe property with clean rooms, hot water and a TV that works. We had a group of... More

Room 109. The Price was very good. I thought the room was nice, clean , no bugs. The young lady at the desk was very nice. I would stay here again. And my pizza from Papas Pizza was very good. I had the deluxe.

My wife and I stayed st Days Inn three nights around New Years. Missing furniture, 19 inch TV, run down looking property, hotel manager told us no extra pillows because of being booked up (we were one of two rooms on backside), not checkout after 11:30 because of other reservations. I seriously doubt that.

We stayed in the suite over the week of Thanksgiving. We had read the reviews and were a little hesitant but after speaking with the manager, she assured us things had changed. She was so right. Kara was the best. Very attentive to us and the other guests that were there. Our room was super clean, smelled good and we... More

We stayed here Oct 30-31, it was midweek, the Oktoberfest crowd had left town and honestly it looked like a ghost town now. Was charged $137 for a king bed for 2 nights, the girl that checked us in was very nice. When we walked in the room, the room smelled like it was over-deodorized, it took my breath away... More

Toilet was nasty and probably hadn't t been cleaned for a month. The room stunk, but the dollar tree had a cinnamon broom which if placed on the heater made the room smell tolerable. Hair all over the bathroom next to all of the bugs. Bathtub too repulsive to take a shower. And to top it off there was blood... More

Here were a few of my issues: The wifi only worked in the front of the hotel. I called the front desk several times, no one ever picked up-walked to front desk, no one there. Writing on the bathroom wall in sharpie. The room was filthy with a heavy odor. The pool was green with bathroom sinks in them.

I know that most of the chain hotels in Helen are sketchy. Bad carpet, falling wallpaper etc.. But this place is horrible. I swear I don't understand how they are allowed a business license. To say the rooms were filthy is an understatement; they were indescribable. The pool is a green cesspool with old furniture stacked up in a garbage... More

Me and a few friends initially booked a reservation at the Alpine Inn for one night but they filled our reserved room before we got there. Kara at the Days Inn took care of us and hooked us up immediately in a room for a decent price. A hotel to pull through in the last minute was hard to find... More
