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.

Conveniently Located

This was perfect for a one night stay. It was extremely affordable and in an interesting and fun area with lots of bars and restaurants near. The room was really small, but I liked the charm this inn had over a large hotel chain. I would recommend.

EAT AT The Highland Bakery. Specifically the breakfast BLT. It closes at 4 p.m. and there is usually a long wait, but it is so worth it.

Highland Inn Atlanta Georgia-Highland ave North

Bathroom-Toilet was leaning and floor was sinking on shower side. Hotel Room-room it's self had a bad trapped in smell. Hotel ballroom- Had a party on one of the nights I was there. I checked with the front desk and was told the party was going on until midnight. The party was loud and inconsiderate of those who paid to stay at the hotel. Staff and guess often smoke right at the front door (entrance to hotel) and the smoke smell rolls right into the main lobby. .

Questionable maintenance.

Small rooms, free wifi, satisfactory continental breakfast, decent air conditioning, nearby grocery and resturaunts, pleasant walking area, friendly residents, aging over painted walls and doors, clean carpets, friendly staff - a mixed bag of qualities unfortunately compromised by the very loud wedding party in the central courtyard until late in the evening keeping us awake when we needed sleep for our pre-dawn flight. Smokers sit near the entrance fouling the air and the room smelt of cigarettes. To compare to European hotels does a disservice to Europe.

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 Maybe a little outdated but the room was clean and quiet and comfortable and the price was perfect.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.

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.

It's clean, comfortable, quiet, safe, free parking, free continental breakfast, economical, friendly staff, great downtown location convenient to everything between downtown and Lenox, easy access to interstate highways, pet friendly, very near many restaurants many of which are within walking distance. Need I say more? :-)

Good place

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.
