This property has a lot of charm. But that is all. If you are in pinch, like we were, you can stay there for a night but I wouldn’t plan vacation there. Our room had the filthy carpet, missing window in bathroom, broken window in bedroom (see pictures). The sheets and towels were clean, the shower curtain had mildew. Continental... More

The food was excellent as is the customer service. We sat on the front porch and enjoyed a glass of wine before we went in for dinner and my husband says it is the most relaxing time he has enjoyed in the last year. This is a relaxing town, great fall foliage rides, great food and great ambiance. The room... More

We chose this route to the Outer Banks for something different. Traveling from Pittsburgh, we took Route 250 through W VA to Va. We stopped for the night at this Inn. It was a very nice surprise and great place to stay.

We love to stay in historic hotels, and The Highland Inn was just perfect! Lovely, quaint rooms. The Black Sheep Tavern had nice, casual dining with good food and great service. Plan to return next time we're in the area.

with a birding group of about 14 people we were seated promptly and drinks were served quickly by two waitresses. I thought it would be too much for what seemed like a small operation but dinners were served in a timely fashion and were very good, not gourmet but very satisfying. The old Inn charm was wonderful and we were... More

I took my wife and elderly mother up for a one-night stay at the Highland Inn, and we couldn't have been more pleased. This place obviously has a lot of history...more, in fact, than can be absorbed in a single-night stay. So we saved some for next time. My mother loves the place to death, and she can be right...

Wanna ditch the city with it's hustle and bustle? Here's your spot. Romantic and quaint, the Highland Inn offers charming rooms, each furnished with antiques. There are gorgeous views and total tranquility. The second floor has a beautiful porch overlooking Main Street. The restaurant has excellent food, prepared by chef Lisa, who has been there for a number of years.... More

The Highland Inn gave us a very relaxing and quiet night. The bed was quite hard, but surprisingly comfortable and the room was clean and small but cozy. We were very sorry we had already eaten as we heard the dinners there were excellent but we did enjoy the continental breakfast. The Inn is charming but does need some updating.... More

The owners, Gregg and Debbie Morse are always gracious hosts whenever we come to visit Monterey. The dinners and buffets in the restaurant are always very good and Chef Lisa makes a delicious trout amandine as well as tasty desserts. In regards to the decor and painting...with today's economy they are doing the best with what they have to work... More

The Highland Inn is an historic hotel with a lot of character/charm and potential but really needs a makeover to get it where it needs to be. The floor of our room (and perhaps others but don't know) listed a few degrees to starboard as did that entire end of the hotel floor but I can't say that impacted on... More

Thanks for the review. This year has been a major push for us to get some updating done. We have repainted and redecorated our lobby and dining room and guest parlor. We did have to put off some of these projects over the last few trying years. Right now we have repaired cracks and repainted the first floor and have... More
