We visited Charlotte for an event at the Spectrum Center. It was great finding a historical BnB in such a great location and one that was pet friendly. We walked to dinner and to the Spectrum Center! That being said would I stay there again…probably not. We had made a reservation for a king, main floor, pet friendly room that did not face the Main Street, in the carriage house. A couple of hours before our arrival were were called and told the door lock was being replaced and would not be finished, so we were being moved. The only pet friendly rooms available were queens. We were between a hard place and a rock. So we accepted the queen room on the main floor. The room actually was 2 rooms. The first room was quite large but had a very strong sweet deodorizing smell. I am assuming this was to cover pet orders that were in the carpet. It was off putting. The second room was the bedroom with attached bathroom. The carpet in both rooms was in need of replacing. It would have been much better to have the original hardwood floor exposed. There are many things that could be done to make both rooms look nicer i.e. replace broken slates on the blinds. The property as a whole looks a bit run down in need of some TLC and other areas just need to be cleaned up. On a positive note: the breakfast staff was very nice and the breakfast very tasty.…
We booked a reservation many months ahead of time for a special occasion, and booked a room with a fireplace specifically. When we arrived, the fireplace was out of order. The room had a very tiny refrigerator (think the size of a glove compartment in a vehicle - seriously). Good thing we brought a cooler. They had also told us when we booked that the room was scheduled for redecorating, but when we arrived the same old, dingy furniture was there, complete with peeling wallpaper. For $200+ per night, I can find much better accommodations elsewhere. Very disappointed.
Last minute changes in our schedule created chaos and needed a place to stay in Charlotte. My favorite B&B in Charlotte as it is home and feels like it when I stay here. Staff, rooms, property and location never dissapoint. Love the finches in the library and always have to say hi to them. Never have enough time to enjoy the property as too busy, however for those wanting to relax this place is perfect. Backyard space, front and plenty of rooms to read, rest or visit. Breakfast english style makes you feel special too. Thanks again for coming to our rescue. PS The Fried Green Tomatoes were amazing. We will see you soon.
I had a lovely stay at the Inn. I came to Charlotte for hospital care nearby and stayed one night. I plan to return for a week in November because the Inn was perfect - pretty room with a delightful balcony among the treetops, a friendly and helpful staff, and elegant common rooms to sit and read books from the extensive library. The entire Inn was impeccably decorated and sparkling clean. As a solo traveler I felt safe here. The full course breakfast was perhaps another highlight for me .The Dillworth neighborhood offered shady walks past stately homes. And across Moorhead were a choice of local restaurants, Kudos to the Moorhead staff. I hope to visit again soon.
My experience here was AWFUL and the only interactions I've had with the inn were nasty, rude, and left me shaken. On my way there, they called to say they'd be leaving early and would leave my keys even though I arrived at 7pm. I wish someone had been there when I arrived because the trouble came when I had a problem and couldn't get in touch with anyone. I called both help line numbers four times, left messages, wrote a note on that I left on the front desk, emailed, and literally stood in the center of the hotel yelling for help and received NO reply. I didn't even get a call back from the emergency help number. The french doors leading to the garden from my room (Hawthorne) did not lock properly. The keys I had didn't fit the deadbolt, and there was only a small latch at the top of the door. This didn't close properly and when I pulled, I could open the door several inches even with the lock still in place. As a young woman traveling alone, I was extremely uncomfortable. Even scarier was that I was the only person in the whole place. It was very concerning that no one EVER returned my calls. I finally got a nasty, defensive email back a week later telling me that leaving a bad review wasn't the "appropriate way" to deal with this. I agree! I thought calling and emailing would have been. I would NOT stay here if you are a solo traveler or someone who might be concerned with your personal safety. Nor would I recommend anyone stay here with service like this!…
My sister and I stayed at the Morehead the night after a big, stadium rock concert on 6/28/22. We were exhausted to say the least. The staff of the Morehead let us check in early and were more than welcoming. The Lexington Room is over the stables so it is not for individuals who cannot navigate stairs. However, if stairs are not an issue, a more than comfortable room and bed await you. We slept so well, and when we went down to breakfast we were treated to a full breakfast not a skimpy one. I highly recommend The Morehead Inn for any stay in Charlotte.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights for a family visit. On the afternoon we checked in, there was a small wedding on site and we were told that we would not be able to use any of the common areas, including the lobby, of the Inn from 5:00 pm until 9:30 pm. We could only access our room via a side emergency steep staircase that smelled strongly of sweet disinfectant during that entire time. The person at check-in was very harried with the wedding preparations and had so little time for us that she could not even show us to our room. The room was fine although the furniture was somewhat worn out and the bathroom was 5 degrees colder than the room during our entire stay. We noticed there was only one bathrobe and when we tried to use the wifi we received a prompt that the site was not secure and that the IP address was not registered to the purported owner. When I went down to the front desk the person who checked us in told us they only provide one robe per room (even when there are two people) and just to go ahead and use the wifi because their IT person was on vacation that week. The common areas, when we were finally able to use them, including the library, living room and dining room are beautiful. The breakfast was catered and quite good. There is a very nice outdoor patio in the front of the house, but, unfortunately, it is only about 30 feet from a very busy 4-lane road. Throughout our stay, most of the staff was polite although somewhat impersonal. We also never saw the same people working the front desk or serving breakfast from day to day. On our last night, the temperature in our room dropped below 70 degrees. I turned the thermostat in the room up to 80 degrees, but it made no difference. Luckily, we had a heavy comforter and were able to sleep. When, we checked out, I rang the bell at the front desk and waited several minutes. Finally, the person who served breakfast (another new face that day) stuck his head through the door and told us just to leave the key on the desk and went back to the kitchen. He did not ask how our stay had been or even offer to provide us with a bill. Finally, I should note that the Inn does not follow its own published Covid-19 protocols. The website states that "Our staff continues to implement best practices....For the safety of our guests and staff, facial coverings of the nose and mouth are now required outside of personal rooms." As previously mentioned, during our stay we probably saw numerous staff members (probably over a dozen). Not once did we see anyone wearing a face covering. Our experience is not inconsistent with the TripAdvisor reviews. Most of the five-star reviews appear to be for events. If you are having a small wedding, birthday party, or other event this place might be worth considering. If you are looking for the type of experience guests expect of a small, high-quality Inn, an experience that includes a personal touch, friendly and attentive innkeepers, and a cosy, warm atmosphere, you may want to consider someplace else…
Although there is not much for tourists in Charlotte, if you are there for business, this is a great place to stay as it is a 25-30 minute walk into the main business district. The Inn was charming, had lovely details, antiques. The staff was very welcoming. Breakfasts were excellent, maybe a bit too large for some people, but there were choices, including a "healthy breakfast".
The Morehead Inn was the perfect place to celebrate my 50th birthday! Dorry's and the team at the Morehead Inn helped to plan every detail of this beautiful October evening. From the food, to the decor, to the service it was a memorable experience for everyone. We had 75 guests and there was plenty of space on the courtyard and in the Tea Room at the Inn. There was even enough room for a short presentation to all my friends and family. Dorry's promised that I would have the best evening and she was right. It was so magical, that I forgot I was turning 50! If you are planning a party and want an inviting and warm atmosphere with great food, then look no further. I had family members stay in the Inn as well and the accommodations were fantastic for them.
A perfect venue for a small wedding of 30 people. We had a Saturday 11 AM ceremony in the main parlor followed by a cocktail hour and delicious brunch reception (the bloody mary and waffle bars were highlights!) It is a beautiful backdrop for a ceremony and pictures as well. The staff goes above and beyond with their flexibility, knowledge, attentiveness, and ability to make you feel special. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about the establishment and Dorrys, the special events coordinator… she’s just one of those amazing people who radiates joy. ❤️
