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 The decor is a bit outdated and needs some refurbishing and it would be nice if the restaurant was...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

Restaurant is open for breakfast and Hit the spot. All of my friends stay here at the Inn and we have been coming for 14 years now. Cannot wait till our... 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

Location . . . Location . . . Location. Right in the center of town, within walking distance of almost everything. You have to be in a certain mindset to enjoy a stay here. It is an old-fashioned place where everything is comfortably worn. But it is clean and has all of the basics. The staff is wonderful, personal, and... More

The rustic charm of this hotel is truly captivating. This small mountain town is beautiful and the weather is perfect if you want to escape the heat of summer. My boyfriend and I came up the other weekend to kick off the summer and escape the heat of Charleston, Sc. Highlands Inn was the perfect place to stay. It has... More

We stayed here for a wedding. The Inn had a water heater malfunction on Friday, our second day. We were told they had to have a part flown in overnight but we were not inconvenienced. There was only one day that the hot water was sporadic and we never waited more than 30 minutes. Only 7 rooms in the entire... More

This hotel is not worth the premium rate they charge, $200+ Night. Highlands Inn has a lot of potential to be a nice experience, however during my 2 night stay, I noticed a lot of overlooked details that turned me off from wanting to stay here again. We arrived around 11pm on a 30 degree night and originally assigned the... More
