Perfect small hotel. If you're looking to relax on vacation this is perfect. Very quiet. Great hotel

Stayed here for 1 night because it was close to my friends apartment and it was only 1 night. Wow! What a dump. Floors hadn't been vacuumed in what looks like years. Hot water cut off in the middle of my shower. Then I open the fridge only to find reminants of the last guests chicken sitting in there. To top it off the fridge wasn't even plugged in. I couldn't wait to get out of here.

If we knew we were going to love our stay that much we would have stayed longer but we only had the room for one night.

Wish we would've known in advance that the lounge isn't open every night, but it was a beautiful old hotel with great artwork all over. Great central location!

For the price it was nice. Close to freeway. Ouiet, clean and they have a sweet black cat.

It's more like a zoo with cats running around holes in the wall so I know they have mice I'll never stay here again

I felt safe, the rooms were comfy and clean, and the cat would hang out with me! Loved it!

This is an old run down hotel in desperate need of maintenance. The room we stayed in had huge cracks in the ceiling and walls. The furniture was broken and torn. The bathroom had mold growing everywhere. Paint was peeling off the walls. The door jamb was split and the dead bolt did not engage properly. Curtains and carpet we're old and dirty.

Hotel is great for travelers that aren't looking for any frills. Free parking, quiet area, walking distance from little five points and marta, and nice employees. The rooms are nothing exceptional but I was very comfortable and it is in a very safe area. Would stay here again in a heartbeat! (Don't plan on eating the breakfast, just go down the road or next door to one of the great options they have in the area)

Great experience!! Walking distance to lots of neat restaurants!! Close to downtown. Very quiet. Very "SoHo" type of hotel!! Will gladly stay there again :-)

I wasn't expecting much, i was looking for an inexpensive hotel to spend one day. But i like this hotel. It is small and old, but very maintained and unique.

We had a great stay. The only downside was lack of water pressure and temperature consistency. Small inconvenience for a reasonably priced hotel in a great location.

I would stay there again. My son wants to give it 5 stars. I know my wife would not like to stay there. It's a conundrum. Perfectly located. Really perfect location. Great restuarants a few steps away. Parking is good. I was comfortable. Local artists displayed in halls. Very clean. But... Shabby. That's the friendliest word for it. Know how far off the typical corporate chain hotel you're willing to go. This hotel that I would go to again is far from that (but just as clean).

We went during Dragon*Con for the event. The staff was friendly, wifi worked amazingly, parking lot was always full but we never moved our car. Overal the experience was nice and our room was clean. They served breakfast and it was fairly good.

I use this hotel often when I need to be in the Highlands area first thing in the morning and do not want to fight traffic, its nothing modern and fancy but does the job well for the price, always friendly staff, comfortable room.

Place was falling apart. Our toilet would only flush every 20 minutes, the shower took about the same about of time to get warm, and the bed was hard as a rock. The neighborhood was also pretty loud late at night and the staff was unhelpful. WORST PART was the "continental breakfast." There was cereal, stale bagels, and coffee. No eggs, no butter, no water. Safe to say, I will not be coming back.

This was a really cute hotel. The rooms were small but the location was great for our needs during our stay. Everything was clean and well kept; we will definitely stay again!

My fiance and I met at the Highland for SantaCon in ATL. The hotel was very close to our meet up spot. The outside of the hotel looked super nice. The staff was amazing! We were upgraded and put on the floor we preferred. The room was clean and convenient to get to. The hotel was obviously an older place with exposed pipes in the room and older hotel type furniture. However, we found it quaint and with character. The art work in the hotel gave it personality and I loved being so close to everything! We've stayed in other hotels in Atlanta but none with such a historic feel to it. The price was right, the staff was great, and our event was super special. We are planning another trip to L5P after the new year and the Highland Inn will be our first choice!

I stayed at this hotel to be close to all the hot spots In Virginia highlands. Everything was easily accessible. The staff was great and it the hotel was very clean. It was quite and relaxing. Very charming.

I have stayed here before. Love the place. Mattress a little soft, but still, I'll be back.
