I personally know people who would take one step into one of these rooms and turn around and run the other way. Those people are no fun.
My husband and I were visiting Atlanta for the first time to go to an Afghan Whigs concert at the Masquerade. I chose The Highland Inn for its proximity to the concert venue (it was about a 15 minute walk). Parking was scarce at the Inn because they had a wedding going on. We found suitable street parking so that was a non-issue. Check-in was simple. We got a AAA discount so our King Suite was $99 for the night. The room is old and kind of musty. It was clean but worn out. There were stains on the sofa, one lamp didn't work, and the tub in the bathroom was desperately needing to be recaulked. The sheets on the bed were clean, however, so it was acceptable. The neighborhood is fun and funky and open all night, so we didn't spend too much time in the room.
We had dinner and drinks at the Righteous Room which was fun and delicious. After the concert, we got a late night snack at The Majestic Diner which is open 24 hours. The quesadillas hit the spot.
Continental breakfast at the Highland inn is nothing too exciting (self-service English muffins and margarine, bananas, and store-bought mini cinnamon buns) but it's free.
If you want luxury, look elsewhere. This place is all about the location.
