Riverbend Motel & Cabins, Helen
Great location next to the river, but the hotels d
The room smelled and was in general disrepair. It needed painting and an outlet was dangerously broken. The door had lost its security lock and looked as if it had been forced at one time. The noises from the floor above made it clearly apparent that the floors are just way too thin. I could hear a normal volume conversation, and a dog staying above us very clearly.

Needs major work
This property is in serious disrepair. We loved the front desk staff, but there are exposed electrical housings, mold on the ceiling, dirty & peeling walls, cruddy tile, rust, and water that dramatically fluctuated from scalding to freezing within seconds repeatedly during a single shower. I felt it was worth about $50 to stay here, but paid a lot more because of the location. Time to re-invest in a wonderfully situated dump. We won’t stay here again.

Key cards hardly worked. When front desk couldn’t get them to work either she just said oh well.

The location was excellent. The rooms were very clean. The furnishing were on the older side but it was clean and the bathroom was very clean.
