Budget Friendly

The Highland Inn is not for everybody. I felt like I was back in college backpacking through Europe. This hotel would have been a treat back then. The Inn could use a little TLC, especially the carpet. The important thing for me was the sheets were crisp and clean as were the towels. The breakfast is very basic, juice, bagels, cereal...but it does not advertise more than that. I liked having a fridge in the room and a microwave down the hall. I would recommend this hotel to the right person and I plan to return.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The restaurant attached to the hotel was excellent. I ate there all six nights of my stay. I would liked to have ventured out, but due to the rain I never did eat anywhere else and I have ne regrets.

Low cost, convenient location

A bargain compared to high-priced hotels in Atlanta. Convenient to sight-seeing attractions, clean and safe. But you get what you pay for. The room was clean but basic: double bed, TV with no extras. But free wi-fi. Virtually no amenities for guests.

Highland Inn

The Inn was a good value in a very convenient location. The shower leaked continuously and had to purchase my own soap after asking for an extra one for the shower. Would only stay again if a similar situation occurs. Good coffee shop walking distance - was visiting family and the convenience was primary.

Clanking pipes

The hotel is in a great location, the continental breakfast was good. Checkout time of midday was great. On the very cold weekend we stayed our basement queen 'suite' (upgraded on arrival) was toasty warm, however the heating pipe clanked for about 10 minutes every 2 hours though the night. The reception offered for us change rooms, but as the hotel was busy they only had the single room available, so we remained in the queen. However, I feel like I got a good nights sleep anyhow!

Lovely antiques shop about 3 doors down. The basement is huge, and not predictable from the size of the main shop floor!

Fair price, excellent location, Helpful Staff

If you are not fancy, this is a good place to stay. Well located, besides a very good bar/restaurant and at a walkable sitance of a more busy area. The staff is very helpful. The only negative aspect goes to the Toilet of the room. Too small and no windowns. But nothing that I could not live with. As I say, excellent place to sleep.

The wine bar/restaurant beside/attached to the hotel. The food is excellent and prepared with care and distinction. Every little thing had its own "magical" touch.

Cute

I think this hotel is a great deal split between two people or more. It's a really old hotel, very quaint, with a super friendly staff. Nothing more than what you need, good breakfast muffins and coffee. Free parking is great, but if you have a large SUV it is going to be a really tight fit in the parking lot. I love the walking distance to Little Five Points and all the great shops and venues. Variety Playhouse about a 8 minute walk, not bad at all.

This was a good value in a great neighborhood. It's clean and charming. Be aware that it is an old building with old amenities, but everything was just fine.

Budget Hotel - Great Location

This Hotel is a bit rough around the edges but for the price you pay, its one of the best deals in town.. Free parking is also a great benefit - esp being in the heart of the city.... If you are on a budget and dont mind dated and a bit of a rundown place, this is perfect.

Just fine

A quirky historic hotel. Maybe a little outdated but the room was clean and quiet and comfortable and the price was perfect. The continental breakfast was nothing special - cereal and muffins and fruit. It's near some good restaurants and coffee shops and close to town, so a nice location.

Simple Overnight

The Highland is located near my Son and his family so it is a very convenient and and is a great value. One needs to understand the small quirky things about an older, european style hotel.
