“Spooky but OK Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is ok if you only want to have a place to sleep. The doorknobs to the bathroom and closet fell off, and the waterpipes were loose. The breakfast was a little too poor. Staff was friendly and helpfull. The bed was a little too small.
The TV did not function, but we had acces to internet. The neighborhood did not feel safe to us. We were approached by beggers and a person who wanted to sell us dope during a afternoon walk. Anyway may be we will stay there again.We talked about what this place has been used for in old times.

Our family spent 2 nights here. It was in the perfect location, very convient to all the local attractions without getting in heavy traffic. Staff was super friendly and very helpful. Rooms are a bit outdated and bathroom very small but was very clean. For the price, location and convience and "homey" atmosphere was the best.. Felt very safe in the neighborhood. Would definetly stay here again.

Only stayed one night but so glad I chose to stay here. It's definitely unique and unusual but that's what makes it's so cool. If you like everything new and shiny, don't stay here. This place has character...with a capital "C"!!! Solid wood doors, narrow stairway (no elevator here), exposed pipes and vintage posters and prints on the walls. And just as described, a friendly cat that roamed the hallway. Even though this place is within walking distance of lots of restaurants and shopping, it was completely quiet in my room. The bed was comfortable but the bathroom was a little small and cramped. Parking is hit or miss as the Inn share a lot with 2 restaurants but there is plenty of parking across the street so it wasn't a problem. Staff was friendly and made check-in and out super easy!

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, make sure you ask which floor your room is on.

This hotel is a very old property that needs much updating. One electric outlet was not secured to the wall and pulled out when detaching a plug. The sink had the hot and cold water reversed, and the faucet was not attached securely to the sink. The sink was also located in the bedroom. The toilet and shower area was small. There was no dresser for clothing, only a small closet. The TV was attached to the wall but not convenient to the bed, so in order to watch TV, one had to sit on the end of the bed. The The room was clean, the beds comfortable. There are room air conditioners, refrigerator. The breakfast room was quite small, maybe 4 tables. On the table were some boxes of cereal, a bag of english muffins, bagels, bananas, a jug of milk and OJ. The staff were very nice but it was not our kind of hotel so we checked out the next morning.

Room Tip: If you ask for a "double" room you may just get two rooms as we did.

I have been to this hotel on many occasions and although it may need some special touch ups and new furniture, the rooms are SUPER CLEAN and the staff is EXCELLENT!!! I travel the world on the regular and have stayed at many different styles of Hotel and only a very small handful have as much character and greatness of location as The Highland Inn does.
