Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center
Ranked #5 of 18 Hotels in Helen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2017

The Helendorf Inn was an absolute delight. The Jr. Suite that we had faced the Chattahoochee River and was really more like a condo. It had a full kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and even a Jacuzzi tub. The air conditioner was already on when we arrived which helped to make the suite a pleasant comfortable retreat from the mid-summer Georgia heat. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The booking process online was quick and painless. We absolutely loved our stay at the Helendorf Inn, and hope to visit again during Octoberfest.

Room Tip: Suites are really roomy. Make sure when you book, you choose your view. Booking on their website is...

This is our go to spot every year we go to helen!! We have a family/friends trip we take every july and we ALWAYS stay here. we love that its right on the river, and we can go tubing from our hotel or we can take the bus to the starting place and tube down to our hotel and hop off for lunch and hop right back on the river! It is walking distance from the cute little town and nightlife.

Room Tip: best views, close to town, pet friendly, outside grills, great for parties, great for business trips

You want a river view which is the only reason to stay here, however be sure to bring your own pillows if you want to sleep....unfortunately, the mattress is awful as well.

My family and I went for the riverview so we sacrificed our sleep but it was still worth it. The hallways need referbishing BIG TIME, really looks disgusting but they get away with it because of the riverview....PERIOD

Room Tip: Riverview ONLY

I HIGHLY recommend getting the Junior Suite Riverfront Balcony room. That type of room was extremely large, full kitchen, clean, and the shower area was the largest I have ever seen! Also had a Jacuzzi in the bedroom. FYI -- the couch does not let out to a bed. I was impressed with the professional, helpful, attentive staff. Perfect downtown location.

Went for a three night stay with our three kids and our dog. Stayed in a room facing the river with a balcony. The hotel is old, but well maintained. Most of the staff was nice and professional. Great location right in the river. The only thing I will say is that if you can't stand cigarette smoke or are sensitive to it, this probably isn't the place for you. There were a lot of smokers on the patio area and it wafted up the our balcony starting very early in the morning. You can walk just about everywhere in Helen you want to go from this hotel, which is really nice.

Stayed: August 2017
