Perfect location! Walking distance to everything!!!!!!

Everything was good except they did not give my receipt for the stay.and said orbitz has my receipt.It has been a week I do not have any idea how much was the total.

Great location in downtown Helen. Clean and staff was very friendly.

I loved the hospitality I was offered and how friendly everyone was. They even let me check in early. The breakfast saved us a lot of time and money.

Hotel was a bit below what we would expect from a Hampton Inn. In the process of renovation. Nice quiet location.

Upon check-in I was quite pleased with the staff and condition of the facility. It was under renovation so there were understandable things that were still being worked on, no problem. Entering the room originally I was pleased, however upon closer inspection we found at least 5 flies in the room that we had to guide out of the room. The Riverview was okay, but disappointing. We found dried feces on the toilet, and hair in the sink. There were visible areas that had not been cleaned, including corners, under the desk, refrigerator. The location was excellent and we felt more comfortable staying than going to any other hotel in the town, which all looked run down as well. Hoping with the renovations the quality of the brand can hold and more attention to cleaning is practiced.

Our stay was great. I had booked it 4 months ahead of the Great American Eclipse. It was a great spot to see the eclipse. The staff were very friendly, especially Jennifer. The hotel is in the process of being remodeled (August 2017). The pool is small, but I was not there to swim laps.

Newly remodeled, one block walk to town, walk to the Hooch, on a quiet street. Love everything about this place!

This has to be the nicest hotel in Helen. We've been there several times and always got cheaper rooms. This time I splurged. Staying at the Hampton added so much to the trip. Not just the location, which is right downtown, but the amenities, the view and the quiet.

The staff was extremely willing to do whatever it took to make our stay an exceptional one. The rooms and linens were very clean, even gave us spare towels to wipe down our motorcycles after getting caught in the rain. Great location close to everything in town.

This would of been a great 100$ Helen hotel but paying 250 plus for the on the river isn't worth it. Balcony is 20 sq feet and can barley see river.

nice hotel. close to everything within walking distance

Great location. Amenities and staff were fantastic.mtge rooms could use some updating.

We had a very nice time even though the weather was not cooperating. The hotel staff was very pleasant and very easy to get along with. Veey attentive. We had a suite with a king size bed which was very comfortable. Sheets and spread were very nice and clean, however, the bed skirt was nasty. The kitchen was a decent size but when I went to use the kitchen sink, it started filling up. I shut it of and the bubbled a few times before it started draining down. We had a jacuzzi tub in our room but it was pretty dirty so even thouh my husband wanted to use it he didnt. Our 2nd day when we got back to the hotel, the cleaning crew did nothing but restoxk towels and pulled blankets up. They do offer a free breakfast buffet that was food. They have free coffee, ice water, choice of hot teas and coca which was very nice along with small pot in room. They have a managers special but we missed that every night because it closes to early. Staff was super, they have an elevator. They are one block away from the action. Little quirks can be fixed. Oh, and fireplace in the livingeoom apace was cozy.
