Our family of 5 stayed at the Helendorf Inn and Conference Center for two nights. We found out about this inn via Groupon. We received a very affordable rate, and we built a mini-vacation around the hotel. Our room had a balcony and river view that was awesome. The room was newly renovated...pretty colors, clean carpet, updated bathroom. The inn...

The exterior of hotel is looking old- along with lobby, halls and elevator. But room was very nice and clean. River view and balcony were great! Check in ladies were nice but not friendly. Great location- town is right beside hotel so easy to walk. Bodensee is across street which is a great place to eat!!

A charming hotel that reminded me so much of the quaint German inns I have stayed in. Loved it and can't wait to go back! Our room had a small Christmas tree, the furniture looked as if it came just from Bavaria. Just perfect!

I purchased this trip through Groupon for my husband and me and my in-laws ended up coming along. Lisa greeted us in the lobby for check-in and she was very sweet. My husband and I had a riverfront balcony room on the 4th floor and my in-laws had a room a few doors down but not on the river. The...

We stayed here for our anniversary. The room is updated and roomy just like the pictures. The bathroom was great and the balcony was lovely. Even though it was a bit chilly we kept the door cracked and could hear the river all night. It was so relaxing. They even had a little breakfast in the morning. The only downside...

We spent 5 nights at the Helendorf River Inn, Suites & Conference Center. It was after Oktoberfest and before the Thanksgiving holiday period. This is a slow period for the town of Helen, and included weather as cold as the mid-teens overnight. We enjoyed our stay, which was in a Junior Suite with a wood-burning fireplace and a small kitchen...

We throughly enjoyed our stay here on the Chattahoochee River. Large corner room with a fireplace that was used each night. The staff is very helpful and friendly especially JT from the maintenance staff. Excellent location within walking distance of many place to visit. We will be back for sure.

Coming into the lobby, and experience a fantastic staff. Before my arrival I had to call and make changes to my reservation.

I have always wanted to stay here...mostly because of it being located on the river and the river-front balconies. Finally had the opportunity to try it out this past weekend and was really impressed. The rooms have recently been updated and are very nice and clean. Goes without saying that the view was beautiful (we had river-front balcony). The staff...

We recently stayed at the Helendorf River Inn for a quick weekend getaway. The location was wonderful as we walked everywhere to take in the shops, dine, and have some great times with kids. Children took some time to learn to skip stones in the river which was right behind our room. Staff was friendly and room was clean and...
