It was way closer to the downtown part of Helen than a lot of other locations. It was convenient and also far enough away that when we wanted to get some rest, it wasn't too loud outside.

The pool glass surrounding the indoor pool was broken and cold air was getting in, the pool was supposed to be heated..it was not heated due to the glass being broken. We were not informed of this before we checked into the hotel. Also there were areas that had mold around the pool on the ground and walls. The water was cold. Not heated at all...No towels were stocked either...Not satisfied at all. Nancy the employee that worked the front desk was AWESOME though. We loved her service. Very friendly and helpful.

The bedding wasn’t very nice. The bed was ok in comfort. There were loud people outside our door until after 11 pm. Beer bottles and cigarettes on the railing.

The staff was very nice. The room was clean. I would have liked more choices for the “continental breakfast”.
