I love old, quaint, funky, non-traditional. So LOVED the Highland Inn!! Yes, the floors creak most delightfully, the air conditioner wheezed a bit . . . part of the charm. The room was very comfortable and cozy.
For me, another big bonus was the location . . . as a 50+ woman traveling alone, I felt like I was staying at a charming B&B where I breakfasted with friends in the 'dining room', chatting about our travels, putting pins in the map of the world - I met people from Belgium, Slovakia, Liverpool and various States.
Jack the Cat followed me down the hall one night (see photo) and I invited him in my room for a visit. He crawled in my suitcase, in the shopping bag, sniffed all my belongings, then sat and watched me upload pics on the computer.
The wireless did not reach to my room during my stay, which meant I discovered the relaxing front porch, where I could sip coffee, check Facebook, and chat with folks passing by. Another evening I chilled on the couch with my feet up on the coffee table.
I walked to Little Five Points to shop, ate at several local restaurants, wandered through neighborhoods nearby enjoying the architecture and snapping pictures. All of the major sightseeing was within a short drive - Cyclorama, Jimmy Carter Center (gorgeous grounds!!), MLK Center, Oakland Cemetery, downtown, Mary Mac's Tearoom . . . and it was an easy drive out to Stone Mountain.
The staff were friendly, informative and helpful. I will always make this my home-base when visiting Atlanta, and have been enthusiastically recommending it to friends.
