    We’ll worth it

    One block from downtown shops and restaurants. Relaxing lawn adjoining the river.

    Nice trip

    Staff was great. Breakfast good. Room was nice. Hotel needs some soundproofing. People in next room were loud.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Absolutely disgusting

    Although I picked this location based on reviews, our stay was disgusting! As we pulled back the sheets to get into bed there were tons of hairs all inside the bed sheets. There is NO WAY those sheets had been changed after the last guest(s) slept in them. To say we were on edge after this find is gentle. Why in the word would you not clean the room and then charge us over $300 to stay there! Just reliving it makes my skin crawl!

    Perfect spot in Helen, GA

    Hotel was fantastic for what I paid. It doesn't look like much on the outside but the inside and the friendly staff more than make up for it.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Over priced, Sad Dirty place to stay.

    My daughter killed a roach in the bathroom, the floor had someone else’s hair left on it. The room was not vacuumed and was unclean and dusty. Not a clean place to stay and when I brought it to the attention of the front desk, all they said was “sorry”.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Spacious rooms, quiet, setting was beautiful and convenient. The swings by the river are nice. Breakfast every morning was great. Bathroom only had 1 hook for towels. Has a lot of wall space to put up 2 or 3 more. Would be a useful addition. Perfect lodging. Will certainly return.

    Location was great, staff was great. Overall the rooms need a little updating with new bedding mattresses. Other than that, well pleased.
