yes it's an older property with the quirks that go with that but it's clean and comfortable. We appreciated the upgrade to a queen room, which was very spacious. Only negative was the lack of hot water in the morning, even after running shower for 10 minutes.

I've stayed at the Highland Inn many times and am generally fine with it. There aren't many options for staying the area. So the Inn gets points for location. The place definitely has a shabbinesss to it which can be either charming or off-putting or even both. The good news is, they keep the Inn much cleaner than they did... More

I was initially a little hesitant about staying here, but glad I did 😊. This is not a 5 star hotel, but they don't try to be. I enjoyed the coziness of my room. It was clean and comfortable. The tv didn't work well. You could get channels, but they were all fuzzy. I wasn't there to watch tv so... More

The Highland Inn is a basic, clean hotel in a great location. The staff is friendly and the room was comfortable. A continental breakfast is included in your stay and the restaurant next door will deliver to the hotel. The hotel is in a great location. - walking distance to Little Five Points, close to Ponce City and Krog Street... More

Great hotel, reasonably priced. Friendly staff in a homey, European style hotel. There is a breakfast room on the first floor, a lounge near the lobby and room with the ice machine also has washers and dryers. Our room was large and cozy, perfectly eclectic furnishings, hair dryer included (always a plus in smaller hotels) with plenty of closet space.... More

Hotel was clean, cheap and in a good location. These are the only benefits. The hotel is old, yes, but it's not distinct enough to really matter. The huge downside to this hotel is limited parking. Every night we came back to our hotel, there were zero parking spots available. We had to drive around until someone left. This was... More

Thank you for your feedback and your kind remarks about the location, price and cleanliness of the hotel. Regarding our parking, we do not guarantee parking in our lot and that is one of the reasons it is a complimentary lot. We have noted online that we have limited complimentary parking and street parking. However, we are sorry for the... More

The owners should be ashamed of themselves. What a poor excuse of an inn. The whole interior needs to be remodeled. The showers are pitiful with cracks & tiles falling down around you. Rusty faucets. The water needs 5 minutes to warm up and once it does, you get in and go from being scaled to frozen. I understand a... More

The hotel is a great representation of its surroundings--1920s architecture with modern amenities, quaint, and affordable. The staff was super accommodating. AND there's an adorable little hotel cat named Pirate, who just might follow you into your room for a snuggle!

The Highland Inn isn't the place to stay if you're looking for a standard boring hotel like you'd stop at off the interstate...it's definitely not for everyone. That said, it's a fantastic place if you like something different. The whole place has an eerie, haunted feel about it. Staff is great and it's fairly quiet despite the bar downstairs, though...

We usually stay in Hamptons, Comfort Inns. That's our reference. This place was absolutely scary. Upon walking in for the first time, my wife opened the bathroom door and the handle came off in her hand. One air conditioner- heater that was so loud we couldn't sleep. With no choice, since we paid ahead, we have to stay there again... More
