Our second stay at Helm’s Inn was as a family of three adults. (The first time we were just two.) There are no two bedroom units, but there are several with sleeper sofas, so we booked one of these. Our room was in a different building than the first time and the room was enough smaller that we were convinced that it would be uncomfortably crowded for the three of us. The front desk person was very helpful, but couldn’t give us a larger room, as they were quite full. She did offer an adjacent room of similar size at a discount as an additional room. This turned out to be a wise choice. We spent a little more than we originally planned, but the rates are so reasonable, even without the discount, that we were happy.
Again, the location can’t be beat. Everything a tourist might want is just steps away (restaurant, shopping, tours, sights, museums) so that we never moved our car until we were leaving. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the long term guests, many of whom have been wintering at Helm’s Inn from the interior for many years, are wonderful, welcoming people. Be sure to visit the lobby during tea at 4:00!
