We loved our room and the adjoining balcony with table and swing. The breakfast buffet, served in the formal dining room, was bountiful and delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful, too.The Inn is decorated with beautiful antiques and collections and is located in a historic, safe neighborhood close to downtown. We walked to the Bank of America stadium... More

Gorgeous place. Smells a bit musty when you walk in. We booked the Solarium Suite but changed because the room was very dusty and smelled like mildew. They put us in the Euclid room which was much better. This place has the potential to be really outstanding if they would just do a little bit of cleaning and dusting. The... More

We love Inns. This was a nice experience, however brief. It is well located and the staff encountered were all very nice. Each Inn has its quirks and Morehead Inn is no exception: Like- Location, staff, main Inn furnishing and decor(main house is really nice), dining room (a stunning breakfast room), exterior. Could be worked on- What is the mission... More

Thank you for your candid appraisal. We do hear many comments about our friendly staff and wonderful dining experience and award winning cuisine. Guests return to the Inn time and time again, and refer to the Morehead Inn as their home away from home! Although we like to personalize each stay, we are often sold out and present a breakfast...

The charming pictures and Southern Living recommendation really put this high on our our list, but our actual stay here was sub-par. As background, we usually stay in nicer chain hotels for our vacations (Four Seasons or Intercontinental for example), but for quick trips to save money, we stay at Holiday Inn. In summary, we have had universally better experiences... More

My wife and I had a great experience at the Morehead Inn during our first trip to Charlotte, NC. The ambiance was great, the breakfast was delicious, but the friendly staff were fantastic. Philomena, with her lovely Irish accent, was a refreshing and gracious host. She made our stay simply wonderful. Also, we received a great dinner tip from Brian... More

My husband and I are b&n junkies. Morehead Inn was an A+ experience. Beautiful property. Susan was a doll and very accommodating. The breakfast was yummy, too. Nice buffet with southern basics. Nice sitting area upstairs with 24 hour coffee access. Close to the Ovens Auditorium, which is why we were in town. Easy to find. We stayed in the... More

My wife and I spent three nights at the Morehead Inn last week. The room (The Worthington) was spacious and spotless, the fireplace was warm and the staff went out out of their way to make us comfortable. It didn't matter whether we asked for hot chocolate, wine glasses or a tray for our cheese, the front staff was more... More

Beautiful Inn in downtown Charlotte. Our room was the solarium. Lots of light during the day and lovely sitting area. Close to the door and the lobby on the first floor. Wonderful Christmas decorations and good breakfast.

I don't usually take the time to review a place, good or bad. However, the Morehead Inn was very unsatisfactory. We made a last minute reservation while visiting Charlotte and thought it would be a nice place to stay. How wrong we were! The first room we were taken to was hot and musty smelling it was sickening. When we... More

I recently attended a wedding here and also spent the night after the wedding. The reception area for the wedding was so hot that all of the guests were complaining! I can't believe the staff/owners were not already aware how bad the temperature was going to be with little to no air conditioning. My tv in my room had a... More
