Thank you for your review. The river is definitely the big seller for us. It is nice to leave your door open on a quiet night and listen to the rapids.

I loved the view from our balcony but the second day of our visit, we returned from a day out and couldn't get to our room the normal way. It turned out they were fixing the stairs which were in real need of repair. They looked bad. A lot of the outside needs to be fixed - like painting, etc. The room itself was fine. It was clean and that is what is most important to me. I do not like the town itself anymore. We went to Helen several years ago and it was quiet and very little traffic. I was shocked to see how it had changed in that respect. Many of the stores are in need of general cleaning (which is not your problem, I understand). I think we would stay at Helendorf River Inn if we ever went back, but because of the changes in the town, I doubt that we will.

German style hotel right in town and on the river

Stayed midway on a week long motorcycle trip. The last thing I wanted was to get on the bike again to go anywhere. It's right in the heart of Helen. The indoor pool is beautiful and great to soak off all the miles. Especially during inclement weather. Staff was great and the Bodensee Restaurant just out the from door was recommended by friends and very good.

Great hotel

Pros: Loved all location and the way the hotel was decorated. All the paintings made the place seem very German.
Cons: The breakfast could be improved. It consisted of mainly packaged buns, milk, cereal, coffee and tea.
Location: Super location to walk to all the neat shops in town.
We were there for a long weekend and it was absolutely a great place to stay. The room was very spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. Loved looking out the balcony window at the river. I think one of our favorite things about this place was its location. It was within walking distance (and I am older with RA) of the entire town. Would stay there again if we go back to Helen.
