nice mom and pop motel in north GA

anyone have any tips on a clean mom and pop place, a bit off the beaten path. in north GA? somewhere in the area of blairsville/helen/hiawasee.

i can usually find a place in the 45 buck a night range that fits the bill, but since i'll be meeting people i need to know where we're staying before we leave.
thanks in advance.

I was just down there for the Georgia Mountain Rally a few weeks ago!
There is a couple Mom & Pop places in Hiawassee on the main drag.
There is a Holiday Inn Express or some other chain up on the hill right across from the main intersection in town.

i was at georgia mountain rally as well. i didn't know this trip was going to be in the location at the time.
i'll have to search around for the names of the mom and pop joints.
thanks for the tips.

Try the Helendorf Inn in, you guessed it, Helen. Nice rooms, easy parking and American owned, at least the last time I was there. Great riding in every direction too.

thanks for the tip, but i'm not a huge fan of helen. i think we'll probably end up in hiawassee.

whats up with the 'american owned' comment anyhow? you scared of people who aren't white?
