Exceptionally Clean Rooms~!
April 26, 2019

I have stayed at this hotel several times and I have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are clean, and I recommend this place to my friends, family and by-passers. Red Roof thank you for a wonderful stay !I will be back again!

Nice place to stay.
April 16, 2019

This is a nice hotel. We stayed here in March 2019. You have to drive up a rather steep hill to get the the hotel and parking lot. I can only imagine how difficult this drive would be during the winter, snow and ice. We always take our own comforter because you never have any idea who and what has been on the comforter on the bed provided. I also requested more towels with a tip for the next night. If you choose to stay here check out the best rate online before calling the hotel and asking. The price I got over the phone was almost $20/night more than the best price online. I would stay here again.

Not the worst, not the best...
February 24, 2019

Customer service: Upon arrival, check in price didn’t match and front desk fixed it immediately. Cleanliness: Rooms were clean when we arrived, but beds were not made the next day when we returned. I left my teddy on the bed and apparently they couldn’t make it due to personal things being on bed.... Amenities: mini fridge and microwave were super useful. Breakfast was really lacking. Needed some fresh fruit and apple juice dispenser was not working. No milk in room, only powder stuff for your coffee. Walls were super thin, could hear neighbours t.v. Lack of privacy. The windows face the parking lot and people constantly walking by. But didn’t want to close curtains as it was the only form of natural light. Pricing: cheaper than most locations but high for what you get. Location: walking distance to city centre.

Dependable Red Roof Inn.

I've stayed at this brand several times since they accept small pets. This room did not disappoint. Nice big clean room, and a nice brisk walk to the downtown (about 10 minutes). Nice view of some mountains since the property sits up above the main road. Simple breakfast included in a small reception room area. Pleasant staff. I thought the amount paid (approx $90) was a little bit high, but it was a holiday week.

Where do I begin?
January 28, 2019

Where do I begin? First, we get to the hotel around 2:00am after driving 8 hours to visit this town. I'm exhausted after spending 8 hours in a car with three kids so all I want to do is lay down. I get into my room, pull down the bed sheets and guess what I see. Someone else's hair. So, I call down to the front to request new linens. Thankfully, I didn't have to wait long for those. I get up the next morning thinking, "I need a shower." So, I go into the bathroom and notice there is no shampoo, conditioner or even a bar of soap. Now, I have to go next door to pick some up at the gas station... with three kids in 25 degree weather. I go out and spend the most of the day at local spots and get back to my room around 3 ish. Again, I want to wash up and come to find out that the water was turned off because of a leak. Now, this I understand, but I've already had a terrible experience so it added to my list of why not to ever come here again. The last a final straw was when I got back from dinner. We came back to one bed made and one not even touched. I've attached a picture to this review. I highly recommend visiting the town of Helen, GA, but never would I recommend staying at this hotel. Other things to mention: -Dead bugs in my room(this was gross too and should have been at the top of my review) - Dirty rugs
