Guest Reviews

There are numerous reasons that the Park on Main Hotel is an outstanding place to visit, but one of my favorite reasons is the outstanding staff. On my most recent visit, I had a difficult situation in which my dog decided that she was in no way going to ride in an elevator or use the stairwell. I thought we were going to be staying on the second floor...See More

Wonderful boutique hotel on main st in Highlands. Easy walk to all downtown shopping. We stayed in King suite with nice little balcony overlooking side st. Extremely luxurious accommodations and people were great. It is designed to be pet friendly, and there is not a charge for pet fee. We will definitely treat ourselves again.

My husband and I confidently recommend this property. We have one small dog and one large dog, and the hotel is conducive for easy outside potty breaks. The rooms are consistently clean and the staff is professional. We are picky travelers, and The Park on Main is a refreshing property in a sea of subpar hotels.

Phenomenal stay at The Park on Main - the staff was so accommodating & our pup loved every second of our stay there. It's perfectly located to enjoy Main Street, parking is easy, and the room was spotless. Will 100% stay there again in the future.

What a wonderful place to stay! With or without a pet. Rooms are super clean. They have everything you and your pet would need. Bill at the front desk was always kind and helpful. Be back next year!
