Perfect for business

Aside from the staff, this hotel was excellent. The rooms are small and quaint, yet very comfortable. There are a plethora of restaurants and bars (tapas bar less than a block away) in the area as well as Rite-Aid and a supermarket - all within walking distance. Loved the atmosphere and the style, and a great value for the price. If the staff were a little more polite and not trying so hard to be "trendy" and "alt" then it would be the absolute perfect hotel.

Decent stay

I found the Highland Inn to be a very good value - good price, nice room, fun old building. The room was small, but had plenty of space for me. There was a fair amount of noise in the neighborhood, but I left the a/c fan on all night and wasn't bothered by anything. I would happily stay there again.

great place, needs some work

walking distance to a funky, ecclectic downtown area with plenty to do. The room had its problems, needs to be rearranged. The bed is positioned so there can be no bed side table, hence no lamp. To turn off the lights you must get up and go to the door, and come back in the dark. The soap was a small pkg of liquid soap, Have you every tried to open industrial pkging with wet hands in the shower? That said, I would stay there again, I'd bring a flashlight, and my own bar of soap.

Quaint hotel

charming older hotel with nice staff, clean but in need of new towels (ours were more gray than white). City noises (obviously beyond the hotel's control) woke us, But for the one night we needed and the price, it was a nice place to stay.

Good stay in a good area...

Charming, simple, easy-going accomodations. It's old timey which may not be for everyone but we really enjoyed our stay. Easy walks to find a lot to do and good eating.

Treat yourself to a beer at Manuel's Tavern just down the street. They offer simple bar food and the good feel of a longstanding neighborhood bar. Enjoy!

Cute Little Place Near Downtown

The Highland Inn was cute and had a vinatge, artsy feel. The rooms are clean. It was a good bargain and close to downtown. It's not a chain, so you miss out on some ammenities, but it has character. You get what you pay for. The price was really good for the location. The only negative was that the mattress in my room was extremely uncomfortable. It was very springy and cheap.

Not large but clean, close and reasonable

My wife called it "like sleeping in your Aunt Minnie's guest room" ... a fairly small and older hotel arrangement with higher ceilings and basic amenities. The parking was free and nearby, but they suggested you not leave "interesting" stuff in sight. Great pics on the walls of some name rockers like Dick Dale who've stayed there in the past.

We had a very Nice stay. The location is very near my Son's house where we visited and it is near the major ATL attractions. We will be returning in a couple of weeks for an extended stay.
