J.H. Adams Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The century-old J H Adams Inn is a major step up from the usual hotel chains and offers genteel surroundings, spacious suites, comfortable rooms, a well-run bar and a great restaurant (Cristina Gray's) which also serves a good buffet breakfast. Exhausted after a day in nearby Furnitureland, we were amused to find our large Kincaid Suite was actually furnished by one of the manufacturers. The bathroom was enormous and included a large tub. The living-room was also airy with views of North Main Street and a mansion across the road. The ample bedroom is in the back, so not much traffic noise. A nice touch was a "wet bar" with its own sink and fridge with full bottles of wine on offer for just $15 each. Our only complaint is that the appliances need an update: the fridge lacked an ice compartment and was hardly cold and the large TV cupboard in the bedroom contained a very small flat-screen TV. The radio in the bedside alarm clock did not work. Some people might also expect another TV in the living room. If you fancy a drink out in this somewhat quiet area, turn right out of the front door and in a few minutes you will be at the Brown Truck Brewery (1234 N Main St). It was humming on a Friday night with a selection of good beers, friendly service and seating in or outside. Live music often played. And for more real fun, join jolly Christina at the small but well stocked Adams Inn bar. She is a gem and gives a real welcome to visitors. Then you can go downstairs to the Cristina Gray restaurant and enjoy an excellent meal. I enjoyed a huge serving of delicious fried oysters with a generous serving of succotash. Then the huge meat loaf and gravy was superb. For breakfast here (part of room price), we were served lightest scrambled eggs ever, with a touch of cheese.

I stayed here in January and would like to go back in the warm weather (i'm sure I will!) to enjoy the courtyard. The room was great, each is unique. The bartender was very friendly and welcoming. This is a short drive to HPU.

Main building is a restored mansion, with public areas and a few guest rooms. there is a new and modern building next door where most sleeping rooms are located. A great blend of old and new. A VERY friendly staff and a warm welcome every time. The place to stay in High Point!

We had a very enjoyable weekend stay at the JH Adams Inn. The rehearsal dinner was at the on site restaurant. It was excellent. The Inn staff was very helpful and efficient. The buffet breakfast was included. Well located from the Piedmont Triad airport and from the wedding ceremony/reception. Highly recommended.

A nice hotel but expected more. The hotel and parking are not well marked. Hard to find. A difficult hotel to get luggage in and out of. Room was nice but not overly comfortable. Room key was not reliable. Had to try many times to get it to work. Only towels for 1 person when 2 in the room. No ice machine or vending. Breakfast was ok. Limited plugs to charge devices.

Wife and I were driving by decided to stop to see what this beautiful house was all about. We walked into the bar area and greeted by lovely Christina. If your looking for a personal touch and great service this is a place to visit. We only stayed for drinks and a tour of the suites due to dinner reservations elsewhere. However the tour was enticing. I will be planning a night or two here with the wife and no kids. Looking forward to a dinner/ breakfast here in the future.

This is the most unprofessional place I have ever experienced concerning booking a venue. First, the venue coordinater double booked our wedding suite with another couple therefore we had to push our date back by almost a month. She didn't discover this problem until 2 months after we booked the venue and could not be refunded. Then, the venue manager called the day before our tasting and said that the venue coordinater that we were working with was fired and she had never placed the order for our menu we were having at the tasting. I had given her the information and we scheduled the date all months In advance. Shortly after, I scheduled a photo shoot with my photographer and booked the honeymoon suite at the Inn as our set. I paid for my hair, nails and makeup to be done and the venue called me 2 hours before the shoot that could not be rescheduled for months (our photographer was very busy) to let me know that the a.c. was out in the room I booked and it was over 80 degrees outside. I was sweating the entire $500 shoot. A new event coordinater was hired who put us through equal amounts of stress. We went through a timeline that was completely off by over an hour on the day of our wedding thanks to their staff serving the food. The process took us 1 hour or more off schedule which we had planned with the event coordinater. Our photographer had to leave and we didn't get photos of my husband and I cutting our cake, or the garter and bouquet tosses. We had to do our exit in the middle of our reception just so our photographer could capture that before she had to leave. After the wedding the venue coordinater contacted me with a balance that she had to revise not once or twice but three times when I noticed inaccurate expenses (which by the way I had to calculate on my own because she has yet to send me a detailed account of where the over 10,000 that I paid them went to) now she is emailing me requesting this balance and has yet to respond to my emails or answer my requests. This nightmare literally will not end. I have never in my life experienced something so stressful and concerning what was supposed to be the happiest day of my life! I will never forget what I lost because of the unprofessionalism and inconsistency of this venue.

I was visiting from out of town to do furniture shopping. The Inn was conveniently located and priced well. The room was comfortable and nicely appointed. There were nice touches such as a bathrobe, mints, and complimentary water. They offered a complimentary glass of wine each night of stay at the bar, which is always appreciated! My room had a balcony, ,but unfortunately because of the cold weather, I didn't get a chance to enjoy it. There's a nice little courtyard that I can imagine is very welcoming in the spring. Parking is convenient behind the Inn, though my first night I got the last available spot. Am not sure what overflow parking may be available. My only disappointment was breakfast. The attendant was very friendly, but the offerings were much more limited than I expected at a place like this. On both days there was a warming tray with scrambled eggs and sausage, cereal, yogurt, various breads,and juice and coffee. My first morning the coffee was empty (though she made more after I pointed out it was empty) and there were only a few spoons of eggs left that were barely warm. The dining room, however, was set up nicely and offered cups to go as well. If I return to High Point, I will gladly stay here again.

Very nicely decorated with lots of charm. Several types of rooms to choose from. Great central location. Nice restaurant on site with good food. Everyone at this location is very service oriented and pleasant to deal with..

In High Point to visit family for Christmas, the Inn was recommended by them and did not disappoint. We were expecting a B&B but found a boutique hotel instead. While the reception is in the original gilded age mansion, most of the rooms are in a modern annex designed to blend with the house. Our large, comfortably furnished corner room faced the Main Street and the mansion and had a bathroom large enough for a small of the largest hotel bathrooms we’ve ever experienced. It included both a huge shower and jacuzzi type tube. The included breakfast was better than average and far better than the typical Hampton Inn type fare. One negative was a loud party in the main building that threatened to keep us up, but thankfully wrapped up at a decent hour. We will readily return on future overnight visits to High Point.
