This old inn is a nice enough place for a quick get away to Highlands area. I think it might have been a Hampton Inn or something similar at one time. Nice gas fireplace, but we didn't turn it on, so can't report on that. The bed was comfortable and the surrounding were clean. Found the soap/shampoo dispensers kinda odd...

We've never had any issues at this hotel. Love the Patio rooms and the outdoor fireplace. Chocolate chip cookies in the evening are yummy! We've stayed both here and the Highlands Inn property on main street and had great experiences with both. Nice extended breakfast in the morning. Quiet and off main street but within walking distance.

The staff is very friendly and showed us the different types of rooms before we checked in. The lodge is older, but we'll maintained. We had a light breakfast each morning until 9:30. You can walk to the shops, food and parade from here with side walks. Check out The Ugly dog, The Mountain Wine Shoppe and The Sports Page....

Stayed here to visit friends and to escape the August heat in Florida. This is a well maintained piece of property. Great lobby with some nice antiques (or reproductions). Loved the gas fired fireplace in our room. Yes, I did light it to see if it worked, and it did. Enjoyed the balcony outside our room. Breakfast was pretty slim...

The room was solid; tidy and clean though very slightly in need of paint and touch ups, hard floors (a major plus!), easy access to main street (walkable if you choose), and the best part--it's dog friendly! There are only a few rooms which allow dogs, and I was pleasantly surprised to find ours like no dog had been there....

For those who may not know, this was a Hilton property prior to being taken private. Can't remember which brand of Hilton, but rooms are standard Hilton style rooms. Fireplace room are larger and a fireplace in Highlands is recommended any time of year. At 4118 feet, summer nights can be chilly ... I have stayed here many time prior...

We love Highlands and have been going there for several years as often as we can. This was a very excellent inn. The staff was extremely friendly, the grounds are beautiful, very comforting to walk around.

This lodge is just a little off the beaten path. It is quiet and peaceful. The lobby is furnished with some awesome antiques but you won't find it stuffy. We found the outdoor fireplace and wanted to start a fire...the desk clerk found some old matches and said go for it. So we did and it was a delightful evening....
