3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the JH Adams Inn in the suite. The room is bigger then some NYC apartments!! Yes it's showing it's age! It's Old!! It is an old southern style house with a beautiful staircase. At the top of it is a Victrola too. My husband was very happy. At check in, you get a free beer/wine per person. No worries, they have a full bar and restaurant. Food is good. We ate there that evening.

Nice place with antiques and clean comfortable rooms. Just a little worn around the edges. Probably the best place to stay in High Point. Rooms are decent sized, beds are soft but comfortable. TV's are a little on the small sized. Staff very friendly and attentive. Park in the back and find out where your room is before you bring in your luggage. Don't drag it up the stairs to the front desk. There were no bell hops when we stayed but the desk clerk carried our bags down the stairs to our room and seemed surprised to get a tip. Parking lot is on the level of the room where we stayed. On site restaurant is very nice and of course super convienent. Free glass of wine for guests at dinner. Eggs sausage bagles yougart and cereal for the comlimentry breakast. Lovely patio to sit and/or eat when the weather is nice. Over all very pleasant.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while we were in High Point furniture shopping . I chose to stay here thinking it would be nicer than a hotel and a bit more romantic . I was disappointed by choice , it was a unique property and clean but has a slovenly , worn unkept appearance . The room we stayed in was noisy because of its location on the property , cars going by all night the second night I went to the desk to get a noise machine . The carpet is well past it's prime , needs to be removed and replaced with a nice airy LVT that wouldn't hold smells and look worn so quickly , the shower had quite a bit of mold . Breakfast was included it was average continental fare, would have been a little nicer to get eggs made to order. Staff was friendly and efficient . Overall until this Inn has a refresh don't get your hopes up!

I thought I was staying in the Gilmore Girls Dragonfly Inn when I first walked in. We had a long traveling day so we dropped off our luggage and headed to the bar/restaurant for dinner. It was a good wine list and the food was excellent. So good we went the next night and I had the same thing - blackened scallops. If there is room eat in the bar. Jay is the best bartender and server and we met Olivia who was also helping out. They were both charming and had an abundance of southern hospitality. We are looking forward to a stay next year on our way down to Florida.

I loved this place! Small, elegant, and wonderful customer care. Far better than staying at a larger hotel and the staff Stevie and Bethany went out of their way to be accommodating. I stayed 4 nights in High Point, the first few nights I was in town JH was booked out, so I stayed at another hotel. I switched hotels in the middle of my trip when JH had openings and could easily see why they were booked out. I don't normally write reviews, this is actually my first review on Trip Advisor ever, but am doing so because my experience was so great!

Having not been in High Point for 23 years, I picked the JH Adams Inn for a recent (August 2017) trip based on Internet research. Wow, am I pleased! Cuz you know people can post pretty pictures and say nice things, but it ain't necessarily so. In this case, it was every good thing posted and then some. I was in a Johnson Street room and it was wonderfully spacious. Even with buffet furniture that included the frige, coffee maker, and a bar sink(!), there's was plenty of open floor space. The bathroom was crisp-clean, well appointed, and with high ceilings, two pedestal sinks, and a gorgeous shower. Bonus -- plenty of closet space. After full days of furniture shopping, I could return to the room for a before-dinner rest without feeling closed in. Plus, there's a covered terrace between the main house and the building where I stayed, as well as space in the main house for sitting to read a while. The staff is top-notch. They are professional, friendly, helpful. THEY KNOW THE AREA and could give me suggestions, options, etc. I'm finding that's not so true anymore. Perhaps people presume Google searches on cell phones replace local know-how. It was a delight to have the Inn staff give me some local history or point out options when I asked about anything from a local deli to pottery. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Go. Enjoy!

A small but elegant inn on Main Street in High Point, NC. Built around an early High Point mansion this quaint inn has nicely appointed rooms, a convenient courtyard and its own intimate bar and restaurant. All the staff were polite and efficient. Our room was very nice and the bathroom was great! They provide a complimentary drink in afternoon and a a good breakfast every morning. Besides having its own fine restaurant the J H Adams is close to several other very good restaurants not to mention the Brown Truck Brewery. I'd certainly stay here again!!

If ever in the Highpoint, NC area you must stay that the JH Adams Inn and dine in their restaurant. If you are lucky enough to meet the innkeeper, Mena Fretsello (Mrs. Highpoint), oh what a special delight it will be. She knows all things Highpoint. The rooms are very clean, extremely comfortable, and have fantastic furnishings. JH Adams Inn is a must stay!!!

The room was cozy, inviting, comfortable and very affordable. The staff is impeccable!! The only place I would stay when visiting High Point. Con: breakfast choices were limited. Eggs over cooked. TY!

We had a very pleasant relaxing stay at this quaint and cofortable inn. Close to High Point U, it is a nice alternative to staying at one of the big chains. Our room was tastefully decorated. Bath was huge with lots of marble and very clean. Restaurant was excellent for dinner with gluten free choices. Breakfast was included as well as a drink in the hotel bar. Would definitely stay here again
