This place is only good for location. Everything else was terrible about our stay. Not as advertised. Room was dated, COLD showers, trash all over the grounds, breakfast was not even considered continental. Very disappointed for the money spent. And now I know why there were so many vacancies during our time this past weekend.

Lack of q proper management is apparent in every corner of this property. No soap in the bathroom, pitiful breakfast, dirty and disorganized common areas; outdated furnishings and style. This place needs a good renovation with a new management team.

Horribly maintained property! Our room keys did not work we got locked out of the building And had to walk in the pouring rain to the front desk they offered us a partial refund through Booking.com from multiple problems experienced including a $250 “deluxe” king in a dark and spider filled basement, torn outside patio chairs, unclean bathroom- but refused to do when booking.com asked for approval. Outside hot tub a stagnant mosquito breeding eyesore. Avoid staying here!

We booked for 2 nights, peak leaf season and nothing else available. We checked in Friday and could not believe the smell from the lobby to our room. Smell was a very strong cleaning/ammonia/Clorox smell. The room sub par for $270/night. Late Saturday on our way back we got a call from family and had to go home. I went to the front desk as someone was looking for a room. He was told nothing available, I proceeded to tell them we were leaving and could we check out and get a refund for the 1 night and the new person could check into our room. The manager originally said no. He also said his housekeepers were leaving. I said they hadn't even done our room yet. Long story short, he finally agreed to let us check out and the new person check in but was not happy. Now that's Customer Service.!!!! This hotel has terrible management and is in desperate need of an update !!! Smell and furniture is so terrible.

Tired and badly in need of repairs and updating. The burning smell of carpet deodorizer greets you, the bathroom full of cracked countertops, chipped tlles, peeling moulding and booger wipes makes you feel dirty. The breakfast selection was well below what you would find in a basic Comfort Inn. Bad hotel in a nice town. Seriously overpriced at $220/night.

Stayed here several months ago and experienced musty room that my wife refused to return to. Heard that there was a change in ownership and stayed again with much better results. Room was clean with no musty smell. Spoke with managers and learned that a new team had taken over with the goal of improving the hotel’s reputation for cleanliness. I believe they are succeeding. With so few options in Highland this property deserves your trial and a second look if you’ve stayed here before.

Our hotel room was not clean, there was hair in the bathroom and a slight odor in the room. We were in a rush to get ready for an event we had that night for the wedding so we ignored the shortcomings of the room. The day before check-out we requested a "late" check-out of an additional hour which the front desk said yes AND we saw them write it down. The following morning we received not one, but two obnoxious bangs on the door with "are you checking out, are you staying another day, etc." to which we promptly left the room by 12:00pm with both front desk agents staring at us like we had 3 heads with no cordial goodbye or even a "thank you" for the stay. Ultimately we saw four other hotels throughout the weekend we spent in the Highlands and every single one was significantly better than this one. Do not stay here unless you have no choice.

This hotel is one block off the end of Main Street; an easy walk though the first part is along busy Dillard Highway. Marie and Ernest at the front desk (they really do it all: bfast, cleanup thereafter, check-in and -out) are helpful and welcoming. Ernest is very quiet -- shy? -- but Marie and "Just her daughter" chatty and good-humored. We found our room to be very clean and well serviced daily. Breakfast is very Continental; eat elsewhere. The lobby is nicely furnished and very comfortable. If they had a bar, they'd be my new favorite, and almost are anyway and they've been by far lowest price on days we've checked. Critics can find things to be unhappy about. The place IS dated; the wifi is barely serviceable (though free); the exterior and the landscaping need work. It's still a terrific choice.
