I've stayed at the Highlander several times over the years, and it has been clean, quiet and well run. Last week my wife and I checked in for two nights. A crowd of teens/young adults were gathered around several rooms, several with guitars, smoking and making loud phone calls. They came and went into the evening. The next afternoon when, after shopping and sight seeing, we went to the room for a rest, the crowd of youth were extra loud, even setting up a full drum kit and making lots of noise. They seemed to have taken over the entire motel. My wife went to the office to speak with the manager about the noise. A man in a room off the office shouted out that it was clear my wife did not like music and he did not want her in his hotel. We were told to leave. Turns out some of the youth are the children of the motel manager, and they appear to occupy (with friends) several rooms. It is no longer a clean, quiet place to vacation.
