Clean but overpriced!

pretty clean, staff was not very friendly. After paying all the fees it was $180 for one night. Would have expected a nicer room for that price. Walking distance from downtown.

We'd definitely stay here again

Everything was very good - from the extremely pleasant young man who checked us in, to the great breakfast, which we leisurely enjoyed before getting back to our shopping excursion. The room was motel typical, but the bed was super comfortable. And it was very clean-looking and clean-feeling. The location is great for being able to walk to restaurants and stores.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

If you like consignment stores, Treasures is a treasure! It's in a plaza on your right as you head into Helen - at least two miles before reaching the Village. And if you like unique but reasonably-priced shopping, don't miss The Village Peddler, which is past the Best Western on N. Main Street, on your left. Great merchandise. Loved shopping in Helen!

not so clean

After i checked into room. went to flush toilet. it over flooded and went all over bathroom floor. called front desk to possibly get a different room or get this issue dealt with. it took about 3 hours for someone to show up... the pool was cold and dirty. it had a lot of dead bugs that i did not want my daughter to get in. upon returning to room i found a dirty sock that did not belong to me. so much for clean thorough.

Lovely quiet place to stay in Helen.

The staff was exceptional! The room was clean and we had everything we needed. The restaurant next door, Daddy's, had delicious food, great beer list and friendly service. We will definitely stay there again!!!
