This is where we always stay when in Helen. Close to town and right on the river, which is what we like best. The room was clean and quiet and Bernard, the desk clerk, was super friendly and helpful. Give that man a raise!

Great Location! Right on the river. Great staff and spacious rooms. Really close to downtown Helen. Walking distance from shops and food! I would for sure recommend this place to family and friends and will be staying here again in the future.

The heater did not work. Sheets and Pillow cases had not been changed, stains (blood, mouth drool and makeup) and pubic hair. Room smelt dirty, and a few roaches. You could feel the springs in the beds.

My wife and I stopped in to the Hofbrau Restaurant and Beergarten to check out the menu and to see the place. We weren't able to eat but were amazed at the complete German offerings available. Everything from Sauerbraten to Schnitzels to German Chocolate Cake were found and at very reasonable prices. We did have time to enjoy a couple...

My wife and I enjoyed the plate for two and it was very good German cuisine. It consisted of four German type sausages and two Pork Chops. They have a full bar and the restaurant in right on the river,

We love the food and the environs. You can look down while you eat and watch the people "tubing" down the river. We love their Sausage platter with red cabbage, sauerkraut, and fresh, hot black bread. Top it off with some good German beer and it is just plain wonderful.

Me and my wife went here after a 10-mile hike on the Appalachian Trail. We went in to have a seat on a picnic table and watch the water and that's what we did. It was 25 minutes to get a glass of water and another 15 minutes to get a very expensive beer and a glass of iced tea...
