The staff are extremely friendly, they work hard to make you comfortable and happy, they take the time to go the extra mile for their customers. We will not be returning to this hotel because it needs updating badly. The owner should be ashamed of themselves, their staff works hard, but the owners need to update this motel. It has many issues that need to be addressed. The carpets are nasty, the whole place needs painting and for the love of all that is good, get a cleaning staff that knows h... Read more

I recently took my daughter for a weekend getaway to Helen. When we arrived, I was greeted by Victoria. I was very impressed! She made us feel right at home, and made my daughter feel special, which is a huge deal to me! Throughout our stay, if we needed anything either her, or Darren were right on it! They're the best! The hotel is older, but it's clean, and quiet. Breakfast was great (loved the waffle maker ???)! If you want the best value, with convenient location, I highly recommend staying... Read more

This hotel is located right inside the city of Helen with nearby amenities that are all within walking distance. My first impression was with Ronnie who was at the customer service desk. He was very friendly and welcoming and instantly made a great first impression on me. When I inquired about the online price for a room versus the walk in price he immediately accommodated me and acquiesced to my online quote. The room was clean, the beds were new and Ronnie informed me that they were in the pro... Read more

We paid $200 to stay here one night and the air conditioning barely worked, the "free wifi" was down, the electrical wires were exposed, the lights didn't work in the bathroom, there were no dressers, a beside table was missing, the outlet blew up my hair dryer, people partying in the hallway all night, people camped out on the steps so we had to ask to get by to get to our room, kids running up and down the halls after midnight, the microwave was missing a peg so it wobbled when it was on, and ...

My fiancee and I visited Helen for the July 4th holiday. Nothing much to say except the place is disgusting. $189 for the night, they should be ashamed. Do yourself a favor, if this is all that is left, don't go. The room smelled of cigarette smoke, the sheets were thread bare. They lights didn't all work, it was very dark in the room. I felt like I could not touch anything. Slept in my clothes.

I had a great experience. First off I had no reservation so I was a walk in on Friday July 2nd. Then I wanted to check in early and the manager on duty assisted me in getting in a couple hours early. I had room 108, it was very clean and just perfect for my needs. I was surprised that Netflix was available and I was able to catch the new episodes of Orange is The New Black. The front desk was nice and helpful and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Pssst, I even had a smoking room and it was... Read more

We stayed at America's Best Value Inn August 5th thru 7th. It was a 3rd anniversary trip for my husband and I. The hotel is really convient to shops, restaurants, bars, & attractions. Anytime we wanted to eat we left our car, walked & ate at the Troll Tavern, Hoffers Bakery or all the other eateries in town. The gentleman working at the front desk was very pleasant & the breakfast included coffee, muffins, waffles, cereal & more. The pool was really nice after a long day in the hot sun. I would ...

I was on the bottom floor and had no issues with any noise above me, nor outside of my room. I would stay here again and would tell others to stay here. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything we needed in it. Had planned on staying here again next month ( September 2016 ), yet last I looked it was already booked up. What a bummer.

Pool area was very clean and secure. Continental breakfast had many options and was better than expected. Located within walking distance of great specialty shops as well as fine dining.If you forgot any items from home... Dollar General is just down the street.

We checked into the room in Helen Ga. Upon walking into the room it had a bad odor. Went to use bathroom and toilet was covered in stool where someone had explosive diarrhea. Checked the bed for bugs and found feces smeared down the side of the bed or it could have been foul smelling mud. The room had mold and mildew along with spiders hanging from the curtains. We demanded a refund and left the room. The staff in the office did not seem interested at all in what we had to say. We will never and... Read more

Terrible Hotel..Mold and mildew...Air Conditioning leaking water on to carpet...Sheets had pee stains and hair on them. Employee said they only had one washing Machine that was why everything was so dirty. Terrible desk Clerk not professional at all. Don't advise anyone to stay here. Needs to be condemned...

The room is not the way it looks on internet. Very small.. Not a clean place. We was charged more than some couples and no one would discuss it with us that was on duty. Power went out 13 times in one night. We counted the times. The toilet run the whole time. I do not believe we will be going back..

I inspect my rooms before I stay. I worked at a hotel before and knows what goes on. Got here,got the key,went in the first room...there was BLOOD on the comforter. We go get another key to another room. The second room we walk in and it looks like someone is sleeping in there. Cups on the nightstand. We go get another key. The next room smells like smoke. Go get a FOURTH key. This next room is alright but the shower curtain is falling down. Waste of money. This place have really gone down over ... Read more

If possible to stay somewhere else, I would strongly advise it if you want a comfortable and clean stay in Helen, GA. The desk staff came off rude and unprofessional during our stay. They also tried to double charge us by saying they didn't receive payment or that our card was declined. This happened to another group we were with as well. As far as the rooms go, they are nasty. Floors are dirty, even by hotel standards. For a double bed room there is not really anywhere to store your clothes. ... Read more

Hotel and rooms are in seriously bad condition, in need of renovation. Toilet paper holder falling out of wall, bathroom walls streaked from moisture, shower curtain mildewed, soft mattresses. Door handle to room worked only after several tries. Ants ! NO WIFI. $50 hotel for over $100/night. BAD DEAL. Staff often absent from front desk.

This 2 stars hotel is in a convenience location so you will pay more during the Oktoberfest season. During this time there are a lot of motorcycle activities therefore you will be wake-up early morning with the rattling sound. The room I was had a large TV, microwave and refrigerator. The carpet had some smell to cigarette. Make sure you ask for a non smoking room and check it out first. Hot breakfast is a typical waffle, English muffin with egg and sausage, coffee, juice, milk, & muffin.

America's Best Value inn, located in Helen, GA was within walking distance of all of the little shops, and eating places that we wanted to be close too. The TV worked well and was a good size for the room. They offered a nice breakfast, biscuits, juice, waffles, eggs, sausage, muffins, and coffee. Nice size refrigerator, and a microwave and coffee pot. We had 2 nice queen size beds in our room. We will return in the Winter, for another stay. --Mary Susan

Do not go here. Period. I accidentally booked into this hotel - Strange statement, but true. I got into this hotel, with my daughter, and she told me this reminded her of hotels in movies where people get killed. I walked into the smoke-smelling room, went directly to the internet to book another room...that was how desperate i was to leave immediately! There was no other room in Helen. I called my usual hotel Westin in Midtown Atlanta, and all the other Starwoood hotels in Atlanta, no room bec... Read more

This hotel was not worth the money we had to spend. The staff was very rude. I have never had to deal with people on this level. The room was run down. The bedspread was nasty. The carpet was filthy. We asked for clean towels but did not get them. We wouldn't have stayed here but we didn't have a choice.
