The Helendorf is very close to everything: Shopping, eating establishments of all kind as well as entertainment. Love its central location and the owner and staff make sure you enjoy your stay. We have stayed every year at the Helendorf for over 40 years. You will love the place, we sure do. Also during Octoberfest it is right next to...

The location is very central and right on the river. We had a balcony room overlooking the river -pretty in the fall. Oktoberfest in full swing. Room/hotel is older but the room was clean complete w coffee maker, refrigerator and small microwave. Enclosed pool -glass structure built around it. Check in was friendly.

I called on Wednesday to see if they had rooms available. My daughter who is 10 was on Fall Break this week and wanted to do something fun. The lady at the front desk told us they were the only ones who had a closed in heated pool which made me stay at this hotel. We could have stayed anywhere...

We enjoyed our stay at the Helendorf. Yes, it's an older hotel, but in a great location. Room was spacious and we had a balcony overlooking the river. We had a standard room but the other couple we traveled with had a suite, and the next time we visit we'll spring for the suite...very nice! Easy walking distance to restaurants,...

If you're going to stay in Helen you need to stay at the Helendorf! Centrally located and nice quiet rooms. Had a great stay!! It's within walking distance of everything. Maybe a little more expensive but worth it for sure. Prosit!!

This hotel was pretty much just as I remember it from my childhood, quaint and a little kitschy in a fun way. The room was clean and comfy. I really enjoyed bringing my kids to Helen for the first time and staying here.

The positive about this hotel is great location. We booked a patio room that was right on the pretty River. Our room wasn't that clean and smelled very old and musty. They really need to invest in new carpet and better cleaning to get on top of that. When we checked in we weren't given info such as there was...

Stayed here for the opening of Octoberfest. The room was spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the river. We had 2 comfortable queen beds, a large flat screen television and even an extra sink in an alcove apart from the bathroom.It was a very easy walk to the main street shops and restaurants.

Helendorf was perfectly located in the heart of things to do in Helen! The staff was helpful and super nice. Rooms were not luxurious, but very clean. Parking was in a tight space, but like I mentioned before, it was in walking distance of the eateries, shops and things to do
