Great value

Older hotel with no frills. Perfect for the one night stay. We were overnighting before a next-day Braves matinee. Would stay again for the price...but the conditions are average at best.

Excellent Place for Single Adult

This hotel is dated but charming. If you are are looking for a posh spacious room....This one is not for you. If you are looking for a CLEAN place to sleep that is quiet and well ran....thus one is for you. The rooms are small but perfect for a single person. The showers are very small but still work just fine. The staff was AMAZING! Very friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

You get what you pay for! :)

This Inn is in a FABULOUS location. It's super convenient to get to everything in Virginia Highlands and Midtown etc. However, it is very rustic (to put it lightly). They staff (both cleaning and service) do what they can with the property. But it's an old place, and has been used a lot. Also, I saw a cockroach (which made me flip out) but a friend said "it's the south, it's common, don't worry". It's pretty cheap for an amazing location...so I guess if you're just going there to sleep, it gets the job done.

Great Find

This isn't a hotel for you if you like predictable fancy chain hotels. But if you're looking for a place with some character that will still give you a comfortable stay, check this place out. It has a great location, walking distance from lots of stores, bars, coffee shops, etc. It's an old building, but it's clean and the staff are friendly. I'd definitely stay there again.

close to it all

The room was small with a small bed but big enough for me and my 7 year old. The place is old but they have done a good job making it a comfortable, charming retreat. It was definantly in the trendy area, and so close to down town and the zoo. I would recomend it, especially if you are a people wathcher like me and my little girl.

Good Value, Comfortable Bed

Stayed for one night while in Atlanta on business. Best value in town, comfortable bed, good wifi connectivity. There was quite a bit of noise (I assume from the restaurant / bar downstairs) until around 11 p.m.

plumbing needs updating

Had to get to a conference downtown early one morning, and had no hot water in the shower. Person at front desk said I needed to run it for at least 10 minutes, since it was an old hotel. Continental breakfast extremely minimal (fruit, bread, coffee). Cool neighborhood with restaurants within walking distance. Try Sweet Auburn BarBQue restaurant. Convenient to busline. Not so much to rail.

Fun wkend getaway

The inn felt like a B&B. The staff was great. Location was perfect, w/in walking distance to restaurants & bars. My only complaint was the bed. We had to fold a blanket several times & put under a bed post to make the bed even. Mattress was not comfy. We will go back & give them another try.
