Beautiful views, great staff and very well priced! Loved the breakfast basket each morning and the trails surrounding the lodge are great for an easy morning hike. Skyline is the perfect place for a weekend getaway out of the city!

Such a beautiful place. Very peaceful and so relaxing.....We loved it. The staff was so friendly. Well worth the short drive from town. We felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. Planning another visit to stay longer.

Most relaxing vacation we've had in years! This historic hotel, built in the Frank Lloyd Wright-style on the summit of Flat Top Mountain, is just a few minutes from downtown Highlands, but offers unsurpassed service, food, and views at an incredibly reasonable price. The 4300 foot elevation of the hotel enables stunning sunrise and sunset views from the restaurant patio... More

You get what you pay for... sometimes. We spent our wedding anniversary at the Skyline Restaurant. It was just perfect. Secluded, not cowed, clean, nice people. Mary Jo at the front desk was welcoming and chatty... in a charming way. Helpful in getting us to our room and giving us ideas on things to do and stuff to see. The... More

I would not pay any attention to the cry baby's review about this Hotel. Our room was a little dated maybe, but very clean and roomy. The atmosphere was awesome. They have a nice pool, and hot tub, with an outdoor sitting area. We had a great balcony and an air conditioner, although you would never need it in the... More

Excellent location in Highlands. You are off the beaten path here but easy to get around and into town. A lot of history with this property and work still needs to be done in updating rooms etc (but that will always be the case!). We were very comfortable, even w/o AC, which we knew about ahead of time. (There are... More

This place is an absolute DUMP! The carpet is stained, the rooms are musty and moldy and it's basically a hole of disgust. There is nothing decent about this place and for the price we paid ($150), we should have gotten something far far far better! There wasn't even air conditioning or a closet and I could barely breath because... More

We thought we would have a nice one night stay to relax and unwind. We have two pets and they say that they are pet friendly. The list of rules for having pets was so long that it would have taken the whole night to read them. We always keep out pets on leashes and that was one of the... More
