Great place to eat with a great atmosphere. We ate outside overlooking the river. The beer was great although can't remember the name was a light beer recommended but the waitress. For dinner we both had the Reuben sandwich which was also delicious

We had a great time in the castle inn. Deb the manger was so sweet and accommodating if we needed anything she was only a phone call away. The room was nice and clean the beds were soft and I liked the old fashion feel, the room feels like your going back in time in a modern way. And its...

We stayed in Helen, GA at the Castle Inn for 1-night. We got a double queen bed suite (bed pillows too hard and mattress too old). First of all, the staff who booked and checked us in, was very polite. Upon arriving to our parking lot/mountain view suite, there was an overbearing smell of Odor Ban, if that's what it's...

We are an older property in Helen one of the first Inns and the only Inn on the main street in the middle of the Village walking distance to everything.

This inn is only fair. There is no elevator. There are no amenities. The room smelt like someone dumped a gallon of sanitizer in the room and called it clean. The office hours are very limited. I would love to have their hours! They make banker hours look long! The rooms are in serious need of upgrades. The beds and...

The Castle Inn is unique. Bring your own pillows. Theirs are like flat pancakes. We had a view of the parking lot, mountain, river. We didnt sit out there due to the smell of the Troll Restaurant. The bed needs replaced. It squeaks everytime someone moves in it. The shower was awesome though. I would go to a different place...

Very friendly place to stay in Helen. Right downtown, across the bridge, within walking distance from everything. Our room had a balcony right on the river and was very comfortable. Easy street access from our room to the Main street. There was a restaurant/ pub on the lower level and lots of shopping right in the same building. We loved...

The pictures and the price ($189 per night) Jed me to believe we were in for a treat. What a let down! The steep STEEP stairs you have to lug your bags up is the first indication that you have made a planning error. The rooms and hallways are so heavily perfumed the air is unbreatheable! There is no microwave...

This hotel take you back in time in a very comfortable manner. Actual keys for the rooms (I travel weekly so that was unique) with balconies overlooking main street which was fantastic to sit back in the evenings and people watch during the late night hours! Set back in the old Bavarian style but rooms were clean and comfortable. Basically...

Hotel has a great location, but the staff is not very friendly and the property is not very well taken care of. Hotel office was closed when we checked in because of a family emergency. Instructions were not clear how to proceed. When I called they were not very pleasant. A discarded hot dog and bun sat in the entry...

Thank for staying with us here at The Castle Inn. We do have office hours being that we are a small Inn. Staying open 24 hrs a day is not very hard for a small staff. We are sorry that the staff member seemed not friendly with helping you with your late check in. I spoke with him and he...
