All the rooms will be enjoyable. The staff was very pleasant. Loved having a glass of wine in the swing out front of the motel. The Heidi's location makes it very easy to walk into the main part of town and see all of the attractions. A good German breakfast is just a few steps away.

We stayed in the queen suite and was very pleased! Very clean, quiet and very nice hosts. Great location to the main part of Helen. Good walking distance to everything. Nice general store across the street. The bed was a bit squeaky but generally comfortable. We had a full wraparound porch, sink, small fridge and microwave. Would definitely stay again!

My daughter and I went to Helen for a weekend trip. We wanted to stay somewhere within walking distance of the cute little downtown and this motel was perfect. It's not fancy, it's modest, but very clean, safe and convenient. Also, the owners are so super sweet - they are on site and very attentive. For the affordable price I...

Wonderful quaint hotel with iconic windmill. Facility was dated however rooms very clean. Staff very accommodating and friendly. Good wifi signal. Location was so stellar. Situated at end of town across from the General Store, (which has everything you need), you can easily walk everywhere. Price is right. Coming back for sure. Roberts family, Navarre FL

We enjoyed our 2 night stay. 2nd floor, left side in the windmill has a gas fireplace that was nice. Things were neat & clean, as they should be. The bed was comfortable to us, & room wasn't run down as I expected from other reviews. The price was good & located away from noises. The swing & chairs overlooking...

this town and this motel are full of atmosphere. Part of the motel is a windmill which houses rooms, also. We were on ground floor = 2 beds. There was a microwave and refrigerator. There was no book of details about the motel or the area. Channel guide just gave the letters of the channels so you had no idea...

I was looking for a lodging that was close to restaurants and shops and this motel fulfilled my needs. Check in was easy. When we asked about restaurants, we were given a 10% off coupon for one nearby. Our room was fine and a small sofa was included which is good for watching TV or reading. The grounds were well...

The Heidi Motel is our favorite place to stay when our family comes to Helen. The staff has always been friendly and makes us feel welcome! Every stay we have had(maybe 5 now) have been excellent.

What a cute place at a great price! We stayed here for a couple nights on our way to Florida for spring break. We checked in after midnight and we were still greeted with a smile! Clean room, kids loved the windmill! Great location within walking distance to town. Will definitely stay here again if ever passing through Helen.

This was a nice and quaint little hotel. We spent two nights here. The hotel was very close to town. You could walk pretty much anywhere. The only negative aspect was that the staff was not very friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was there to do their job and that was pretty much...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Heidi motel is located in down town and is one of the most Photographed building in Helen, GA and is one of the landmarks to the town and also are currently the only Motel in this area that you can actually stay in a windmill. We do not do a Breakfast due to the fact that we are across from Bettys country store and 2 buildings down from Hoffers Bakery which we recommend to all our guest to go for a great German breakfast and lunch. We have no pool due to the fact that we are so close to the river and that there are 2 water parks in town. We are American owned and operated and live on site. We work very hard to make your stay great and really appreciate your business. Thanks Chad Jackson ... more   less
