Great place to stay, newly remodeled / updated

The hotel is in a great location for walking around the shopping areas of Helen. Breakfast was abundant with a good choice of food. We enjoyed our stay!

Great hotel, easy walk to town

Pros: The convenience to town without being in the traffic. Breakfast was great!
Cons: The flow from the front desk past the breakfast area was narrow, especially with people congregating to that area.
Location: There was plenty of places to eat, drink and shop!
We booked this hotel hoping for the best, which Hampton seems to always deliver. We wanted something close to town and reasonably priced. We got it all. It is situated 1 block from the main road and about 1-2 blocks from the center of town, which helped with traffic and keeping down the noise. Everyone at the front desk was super friendly and so helpful. Even housekeeping and other employees we met in the hall were great and highly recommended several places to visit or eat. The rooms were great! Our friends were upgraded to a king suite which was perfect! It would be plenty of room for 2 couples for a short stay. Our double-queen room was spacious and had a large bathroom. The hotel was exceptional clean, considering it was full. The pool was clean and well lit for an evening swim, although it was in the back of the property, which was nice being away from the hotel traffic, but it was a walk through the parking lot under the hotel. Breakfast was great, eggs, sausage, gravy and biscuits in addition to the regular toast, bagels, etc. It had a nice sitting area for breakfast but while we were there people, include a wheelchair seemed to gravitate to the narrow hallway area beside it. That made it awkward to pass thru. I did like how coffee and hot water was available most of the time, away from the breakfast buffet. Over-all - we loved the hotel and will book this hotel again.

Excellent location and value

Amenities and staff were tops. It's situated near the river, which provided an extra place to sit back and relax, watch the tubers float by. The inn is an easy walk to restaurants, yet back far enough from the main street that noise and crowds are not bothersome.

Poor service

Pros: Quiet
The room was clean and nice as any Hampton that I have stayed in before. Problems with check in. Check in was at 4:00 p.m. my friends and I had booked 4 rooms to spend the weekend. We had to wait over for up to 2 hours for our rooms to be cleaned before we could check in. Excuse was they had several rooms rented thr previous night. Only thing the check staff offered was that they were sorry for the wait. We wanted to shower and change to go enjoy Helen, GA. would not advise staying with this motel, there are other places to stay in Helen.
