It was in an excellent location in James Bay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beds were wonderful and it was cool and quiet at night. Cleaning could be a bit better as the back of our remote was caked with something and you could see where they had wiped on the glass table. Also the bottom level of the glass table was quite dusty. Glass door between hallway and outside really should be cleaned daily as it was visibly dirty. Other than some minor cleanliness issues, I would stay here again. Thank you, Helms Inn!

I think Helms Inn were apartments in a past life, so the suite we were in had full kitchen and living area very large. 11 year old with us loved the Murphy bed. Had a view of Beacon Hill park and right in middle of harbour area. 3rd time staying there. Love it

We loved that it was so close to the centre of town. It was air conditioned and since it was very hot outside that was crucial. It was next to a beautiful park.
