The staff at this hotel was extremely good. They were very busy and very helpful. I think they were even training someone at the time. The suites at the back were great . I had to stay a little past checkout but experienced no problems

We enjoyed our stay there. Check in was very slow. The employee was having equipment problems. We would possibly stay again. The bed was nice, We had a balcony room, it was nice. The staff was nice, The breakfast was very good. Coffee was very good. Nice fireplace in the lobby. We walked to shopping and dining from there.

Clean, will maintained, great location, good food. Puts you just off town center and well within walking distance for shopping. Outside hallways WELL lit, causing some light excess inside the room at night. Housekeeping probable needs better vacuums, since some small pieces did not get picked up during the cleaning process, but overall the place was great.

Exceeded my expectations. Great location! Clean atmosphere! Only issue we had was poor WIFI. Would definitely stay here again. A great central location to downtown Helen, Unicoi, Cleveland & even not too far of a drive to Dahlonega.

We've stayed in Helen many times...usually camping at Unicoi State Park, but this time we brought an out-of-state friend who was visiting us. We stayed at the Best Western because our trip was a short one, and it was more convenient than camping. The BW did not disappoint. The room was large, beds were comfortable, and everything was clean. We...

be aware, and check the locks on your door! Our chain lock was installed incorrectly. They're supposed to be installed horizontally. Our room had it installed vertically, where the chain could just be lifted straight out. I ended up hanging a very heavy bag on it, but still. If there's one like that, there's probably a lot of others. The...

We enjoyed our 3 day stay as we roamed the mountains and explored the area. Beautiful scenery complete with waterfalls and picturesque mountains. Everyone here exceeded our expectations. We will be back nectar year and hoteliers stay in the Best Western motel.

We stayed here recently for a couple of nights while visiting the Helen area, We received a warm southern welcome upon entering the front door. The lady at the desk that day was definitely an asset to this place. To be truthful, I had been a little worried about this place because it did appear a slight bit older than...

Enjoyed the service and the people who provided the service along with the accommodations given for the price of the room. The hotel was located in the main part of the town and we walked to every event and shopping and we felt secure and comfortable doing so. We also got to keep you with our "counting of steps" exercise...
