"Cheap Price, Updates Needed!!"
The hotel has changed locations. The Jamison Inn is now in the location where the Econo Lodge use to be. The Econo Lodge is no longer on the front street, it's in the back. The positive aspect is the fact that the staff is super friendly. The hotel is old and it needs updating. The rooms were clean yet the wallpaper was coming down on the wall near the sink. The furniture was very worn. The beds were uncomfortable; new mattresses are needed. We will stay in the Jamison Inn next time!!

The front desk was very unorganized and sending people to dirty rooms. The couple in front of us actually left because they sent them to two dirty rooms and then sent me to one. I was in a hurry so didn't have the luxury to leave. The rooms were not clean. The next morning it was clear that the lady from the front desk lived at the hotel and her grandchildren were running up and down the walk way by the room and being very noisy. Her other family member was jumping his car off and it was clear they were staying there as well. Very trashy and the police car parked on the side street watching the place all night didn't help the atmosphere. Never stay here again. Was trying to save money since it was just a place to sleep for one quick night but I will just pay more next time.

"DIRTY"
I thought that this would be a nice clean hotel but boy I was wrong. It was gross from the moment we walked into the lobby. The room was dirty and smelled like very bad cigarette smoke and I am a smoker so if I can tell its really bad. The pillows did not have pillow cases. The floors walls door were all disgusting. I was scared to walk around without shoes. We arrived at the hotel very late at night around midnight, if it had not been so late we would have gone some where else. In the morning when we woke up the only coffee in the whole hotel was decaf. The breakfast selection ( not that I would have ate anyway just wanted to see what they had ) consisted of cereal, packaged honey buns, and packed microwave sausage biscuits. Nice breakfast......NOT. Thankfully we left as soon as we got up and ready for the day. We had a wonderful day in Helen but I will never stay there again. I do no recommend it to anyone. Pay a little more and stay somewhere else

"Nice and quiet place to stay"
Very clean and comfortable. Just outside of town the perfect place to stay. Easy to get in and out of. Not to far from almost all of the main attractions in Helen. We were able to sleep in without any disturbances or mooches waking us up. Beautiful view of a mountain just outside your door.

"Not Impressed........."
Weather was 11 degrees upon arrival, the room temperature was probably 25 degrees. (no kidding), we had reservations so they knew we were coming, yet they failed to turn the heat on..... it took about 3 hours to warm up. The door leading into the bathroom had been kicked in and there was cigarette butts on the carpet. The only saving grace about this place was the free continental breakfast the next morning. It was great!

"Inexpensive hotel for the night"
Room was clean but no added frills. Good size tub/shower noted and water pressure provided nice shower. Free wifi was a benefit. Also a good variety of breakfast foods for our free breakfast made family happy. The stay was inexpensive so added benefits were nice.

"Smelly"
The room had an odor and we couldn't tell if it was from bug spray or a cheap room spray. The pillows, were flat, mattress was terrible, dust ruffles was all torn, needed a good paint job. Not very homey feeling. Will not go back or reccommend

"helen best reasonable motel"
We have stayed here before. The motel is clean and convenient but not in the middle of town. How big is Helen though?? Anyway, good staff and good place to crash with all the necessities. Its a walk to anything, drive if you need, theres plenty of public parking at the end of the street. (4 blocks)

I arrived early and had to wake the owner up.I also asked if I could take advantage of the free breakfast as I was going to be checking in that day and was turned away. It would have been very easy to allow me a mini muffin to keep the loyalty to your customers. The next morning while eating at the recommended time, my husband had to once again " wake" the owner to provide us with fresh milk. The shower heads are very corroded. However the staff that was at the desk later were polite and "unlocked" the chain around the pool to allow my daughters to swim 30min early.

"Close to water park and tubing"
Quality was poor. The room was not cleaned during our stay. The beds were double beds and 2 pillows per bed. The lobby looked like it was under construction, but it was not. Breakfast was from 6-9am and we never made it (we are on vacation! I dont want to get up that early) It is foreign owned and operated. Overall, if you go cheap, this is what you get.

"Nasty"
Mold on the walls. A pervasive and overpowering scent of pine-sol. Damp carpets. Stained sheets. Lumpy, springy beds. Need I say more? The staff was OK. The breakfast was skimpy, but not terrible for the price. It was mainly just how disgusting the hotel was, like it was halfway on it's path to being reclaimed by swampland. Also: a big extra charge to use a crib? My advice? Pay a little more and don't feel like you are slowly decomposing in a fungus farm. Oh, one point in their favor: the bathrooms were sparkling clean - so kudos on that one!

"could have been better"
Arrived early. Desk clerk helped us with checking in early. Great all around staff at the hotel. The room was very dated. This was very obvious when we got to the room. A/C filter was dirty found this when the unit stopped cooling. Wanted to iron my clothes found that the iron was dirty and also the ironing board was dirty. There was no cover on the light fixture in the bathroom. Toilet didn't quite work right, had to flush 2 times anytime we used it. Chair backs were broken. Nightstand and dresser had big chips in the finish. The TV was terrible as well could barely see the picture. The only part about our stay that was god was the wonderful staff that works here. The owner really needs to update a lot of things here.

"Underwhelming."
Very underwhelmed with my stay at the EconoLodge in Helen, Ga this past weekend. The room was ok, it worked for a family of 4. The bed was hard, pillow flat. A/c was too cold, but the room got too hot without it. The shower head was disgustingly dirty. Breakfast was decent if all you drink is bad coffee, no juice and very little milk. Staff was friendly. Location was good. Will not stay here again, I'll spend the extra few bucks and try something else.

"You get what you pay for."
The Plus - Friendly staff. Quiet area. Close to Helen, but not directly in town. The Downside - The beds are advertised at Queen, but they are Double sized and not very comfortable. Sheets were so thin you could see the mattress through them. Very close to waste water treatment facility. Overall - Decent hotel for the money if it's a short stay.

"Pet friendly under 20 lbs."
Chose this hotel because it was listed as pet friendly. Glad I had small dogs, because dogs over 20 or 25 lbs weren't allowed. Our bedspread had dried blood on it as did the bed skirt. It met the need, but I wouldn't stay there again.

"Was so bad, we left"
We checked into this room, we left to go find another place to stay. We found another hotel in town that ALOT nicer for not much more a night. The room was dirty, the bed was flat and hard as a rock, the wallpaper was bubbled and peeling, the bed comforter smelled like it had not been cleaned. It was me and my two kids and I was not about to let them stay there. I coughed up the lost of the room fee and just went to another hotel. For $49 - you get a $49 room.

"better than i thought"
We got to the hotel a lil after 10 at night so we were concerned if it was as bad as some of the reviews we would be SOL considering it was new years weekend. It was a lil off the main strip so super quiet. Cleaner than I expected and the older lady at the front desk was super sweet in the mornings. It was average hotel but I'm glad we stayed here instead of on the main strip. Its soooo busy in the day. Overal it was clean, beds were ok, only major complaint is everythinf is out dated including the TV it was super old and would have been great if there was DVD player for kids.

The hair dryer looked like it was from the 1970's and it had an old tv which had poor picture quality. It was not clean and we had to clean the toilet ourselves. With a little maintenance this could be a good hotel.
