This is a charming and relaxing inn in the lovely town of Highlands. We have stayed here on several trips and really enjoyed each visit. We love the long porch on the 2nd floor where we sit and relax. The breakfast is good and the staff is very helpful. We will come back and highly recommend this stay to everyone.

Our room was spacious, bathroom was very clean. However, the hotel and hard and soft furnishings are OLD! Some antique and others just plain old. I grew up in a 100+ year old Victorian home so I am very familiar with sloping floors, low ceilings and additions that don't always perfectly fit with structure. I do think that they could... More

Really old and needs some updates, however that is part of what makes the hotel special. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is located right on main street in the middle of town, convenient to all the shops and restaurants. The hotel does not have a pool so if you are looking for relaxing around the pool you need... More

Highlands Inn is in a charming, historic building on Main Street, but the furnishings are a bit tired. Love the porches and the location. Friendly hostess/host upon arrival and departure. HVAC is a bit testy and very loud. All-in-all, we would probably stay here again.

The Highlands Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Highlands, N.C. From the wonderfully warm greeting when you walk in the front door to the friendly and attentive staff that help with your every need you know you have found a home away from home. One of the best features is the location right on Main Street in the... More

This Hotel is perfectly located in the center of town. The room was pleasant and it is a Historic building and has some of the characteristics you would expect and a little less creature comfort than the higher priced Highlands spots.

Recently attended a rehearsal dinner at the Inn and was blown away by the ambiance of not only the Sequoia Room but the Inn as a whole! Was gladly given a tour of the Inn by the very helpful and attentive staff members. Oldest building in Highlands and a lot of cool history! Enjoyed the game room downstairs as well!... More

During our wedding weekend we had our rehearsal dinner which was for 80 people at the Highlands Inn in the beautiful Sequoia room. The hotel staff and owners were extremely helpful with everything we needed. Allowing us to get setup days before the event. The night went off without a hitch. The next day we enjoyed a 12 person groomsmen... More

The lady at the front desk was very friendly. The place is old, though. Without a multi-million dollar renovation, this place isn't going to be nice. There is an old smell and feel throughout. The carpet is very thin and the bathrooms are dated. We only stayed one night and couldn't wait to leave. I felt depressed just being there.... More
