Excellent quiet location, clean attractive room with mini-fridge & microwave, and friendly office manager were hits! I liked that the manager suggested we look at the room before he assigned it to us. However, a big miss was the continental breakfast, advertised on the website as having English muffins, hot oatmeal, hot grits, an assortment of muffins and Danish, juices,...

Beautiful location right on the river, so peaceful and quiet. Wish we could have stayed in a chalet right on the river, but there was a mix up with our reservation and we stayed in a house right down the street. Thanks to Mark for working it out for us. We hope to return sometime and stay on the river.

My better half and I went away to visit "Helen Georgia"...all I can say is what a location. We got very lucky on selecting "Riverbend Motel and Cabins" in more ways then one. We selected a cabin and it is "right" on the River, you can not ask for a better selection then this. It's a large cabin with a...

Our rooms were nice, clean, and well furnished. There was a coffee pot and coffee in the room. But there was also coffee in the office, along with muffins and other goodies. Mark, the manager, was very friendly and helpful. We needed a few extras, and he was quick and generous to supply our needs. We felt like guests, more...

Motel is kept clean and staff very helpful and nice. Motel is right in center of town, with restaurants and shops a short walk away. Bar B Q's available along riverbank. You can sit and watch tubers on swings that are right along river. Definitely would stay there again.

We have stayed there 3 times now and had the best time. It is Location Location Location. The best feature was being to be able to watch the tubers go down river. Makes a great stop off point half way down the river to get refreshments and food or a bathroom stop.

I love this place. First the owner / manager is so accommodating and kind. The day we arrived was my birthday a trip with the girls and he helped my husband get flowers and chocolates delivered and had them in my room waiting on me when we got there! It really made my day. Then he gave us suggestions about...

My stay July 14-16, with other family members, at Riverbend was one of the most pleasant ever due largely because of Mark and his courteous staff. They were attentive before, during and even after our visit and immediately responsive to our every need. I was amazed to learn that Mark was an employee and not the owner. Rooms were clean...
