Hands down the most charming inn in town! The location was perfect being in the heart of Highlands. The staff was very accommodating and sweet. I would recommend this to anyone visiting! Wouldn't stay anywhere else next time I visit. Cannot wait to return!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in a front porch room. We absolutely loved our stay. The people watching on the front porch in the cool afternoons is delightful. I wish we could've stayed longer. What a charming place this is right in the center of town. We are looking forward to our return visit in the... More

We stayed here for a family reunion of sorts and cannot say enough good things about this great little jewel. For the life of me, I cannot find one negative. WELL, maybe I would've loved to eat just one more of those chocolate chip cookies. Our room was clean and comfortable. Location and staff were excellent. Breakfast was very good.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights, July 7 and 8, 2015. The 2 women that work the front desk, Linda and Diane I believe, were pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately the positives about this property end there. We stayed in the most expensive room there. It had a bathroom ceiling in need of repair, a non working phone,... More

This is a very nice hotel right in the center of town. It is a less expensive alternative than many others and is clean and very comfortable. The staff was very sweet and accommodating and they did offer free coffee downstairs. The decor is a bit outdated and needs some refurbishing and it would be nice if the restaurant was... More

We stayed at the Highlands Inn on our way to the Outer Banks... Wish we could have stayed another day or two. You will find friendly service and a well maintained old inn. We had a comfortable bed with a great balcony view of all the goings on in downtown Highlands. Lots of shopping and dining choices. A favorite of... More

During my visit to Highlands’ I was delighted once again by the warm hospitality and cozy accommodations. This was the first time I’d stayed in one of the rooms on the “back” of the Highlands Inn – a great spot to catch the morning sun shining through the blossoming tree on the balcony. When I return to Highlands I will... More
