JH Adams Inn
We have booked JH Adams Inn for our wedding ceremony and reception in 2014 and could not be more impressed with the service this far! Leeann is great to work with and has been quick to respond to any questions we have!The venue was very well priced compared to other venus in the Triad. We had the pleasure of meeting Mena as well, and have been very impressed with the staff as well. We also had high tea here with our entire family and we were really impressed with the quality and the quantity of the food and tea! Such a beautiful venue and such great staff! If the delicious food is a taste of what to come at our reception we can't wait! Will update a review after our wedding in 2014 :-)
I just had my ceremony and reception at this beautiful inn last month. We had booked a year in advance and every time I sent an email or called Mena or Meghan they returned it very quickly. They were both so great to work with. The staff was also very nice and helped in any way they could. Food was delicious and I got good reviews from my guests. Everything turned out so great. I told Meghan what I wanted and they had everything set up and ready to go so quickly! I felt like they went above and beyond to make our day special. Thank you so much!!
We just recently had our wedding reception at the JH Adams Inn in June 2011. The venue is beautiful and the food (catered by their restaurant, Hampton\'s) was great. However, we were disappointed many times over during our wedding reception due to the disorganized, immature and unprofessional wedding coordinator at the Inn. \r\nUnfortunately, the weather for our big day was showing about a 30-50% chance of rain. I had inquired earlier in the week about a rain plan and was told by the coordinator that \"we would just pray that it didn\'t rain.\" That is an unacceptable response. It was further unacceptable when at the beginning of the cocktail hour a storm began moving in, and the beautifully set tables were in the path of the storm. When my sister-in-law inquired with the coordinator on the plan for moving the tables under the tent, she stated that despite the black skies, she would not move anything without the bride\'s permission, though she made no effort to contact me or my husband (who were enjoying time alone before the reception started). The entire bridal party (in their formal dresses) and the family frantically moved tables to underneath the tent. The storm pushed the dinner hour back about 1 hour, which wasn\'t a big deal, thankfully because all of my friends and wedding party were able to save the tables, chairs and beautiful flower arrangements from getting soaked. \r\nI had given the coordinator a detailed timeline of the reception at least 1 week prior to our wedding day. However, when my husband and I went to cut our cake (as per the timeline) there were no cake cutting utensils for us to use. It had been arranged that we were to use silverware provided by the Inn. By the time the coordinator was found and she was able to find silverware for us, our \"cake cutting song\" was over. How embarrassing to stand there in front of our cake with tons of cameras, unable to cut anything. For the rest of the evening, even though events were clearly stated per my timeline, the coordinator never lifted a finger to arrange for the bouquet toss, garter throw, etc. My sister-in-law became the point person for the night and thankfully handled all of the details, but was unable to enjoy the wedding herself considering she took on the role of \"wedding coordinator.\" \r\nAlso of note, there were two bars set up for the night and one was left completely unattended for hours where guests were helping themselves to beer and wine. This was problematic for two reasons, (1) leaving a bar unattended is against liquor laws and (2) the beer tab ran out much quicker than it would have had someone been staffing the bar the entire night. Wine was not served during dinner either to the tables or at the bar and the white wine was not put on ice. It wasn\'t until my sister-in-law checked with the bartender on the status of the bar and why it was unattended did anyone notice.\r\nThe biggest disappointment was that the coordinator never once apologized for any of the above events, but instead only gave attitude to myself, my husband and my family during the entire event. After we got back from our honeymoon, I called and wrote emails to upper management at the Inn to give them details of what happened that night. I was told that I would be compensated with a free nights\' stay and dinner at Hampton\'s however, I NEVER received a thing. \r\nBe prepared to deal with an incompetant coordinator if you decide to use this venue for your wedding day.\r\n
This is where my Daughter and I decided to have the wedding ceremony and reception. It was absolutly the most beautiful place. We both new as we walked in the front door that this was what we were looking for. We should have listened to our first GUT feeling when the first appointment we set up with the person (name not given) and she wasn't there. This was like a roller-coaster. I don't think I met with the same person once. And to think we were suppose to feel good about spending our hard earned money on a wedding that we wanted to be perfect. They go out of their way to help you until the deposit is posted and things are on the go. Had I NOT already sent out the invites, even after putting the $$$$$ down on the venue, I would have cancelled this. They have a beautiful place to run, but the most unprofessional people working there. The food is absolutly the best and the staff under management level is ok, but the management is the worst. You would think with all the complaints that the corperate office probably gets that they would look into this. This place, no matter what it is bringing in could do so much better if they would look into the problemed areas such as the managment. It is ran very unproffessional, I can't say it enough. We had no contract signed at any time, They do a bit of hen scratch on a peace of paper and that whats you get for a contract or receipt ( unless after my issues things have changed). You will be charged with all kinds of hidden fees and deposits, so please get EVERYTHING in writing. Also you are probably better off bringing in and serving your own beer and wine or you will be over billed for beer and wine that your guest couldn't possibly have consumed. This Venue is a definet RIP_OFF!!! They take advantage of people, because they know once you fall in love with it and start the wedding proceedures your STUCK!!!!!! Be sure to have a contract (actual contract) filled out discussing all deposits, cost and fees. After going through everything I've been through and doing my research ( that I should have done ahead of time). I found a contract online, this was never used, nor discussed. What does this tell you about management. Who has a contract and doesn't use it. Be very WEARY and make a few appointments before takeing the BIG PLUNGE. You'll see I was right when you don't meet with the same person at least twice in a row and that will be the first sign!!!!!!! Love the place and food and for that I would give it 5 stars, but everything else poor, very poor.
The Inn gave me everything I was looking for. Mina, the GM, was awesome to work with; she knew exactly what I wanted and made it happen. Meghan, event manager, was so amazing with staying on top of the reception and making sure that everything was done perfect. Mina and Meghan had the chef prepare two plates of food that was waiting in the bridal suite for my husband and I after the reception. The food was perfect, the tables set up exactly how I wanted, and just the Inn itself has so much detail the only decorations that I need was flowers! I only had one concern and as soon as I let Meghan know; she immediately took the situation under control without any of my guest knowing. I highly recommend not only the Inn for your venue, but for just a quick get-away!
We had our wedding at the JH Adams Inn in August of 2010. We fell in love with the Inn at first sight, it is stunning. Everything started out wonderfully - they answered emails within hours, had answers to my many, many questions and were fabulous.
The staff that started out so wonderful turned very bad. It started by not being there when we scheduled a meeting. Then not returning emails. Then 1 month before the wedding, we find out that they booked ALL of the rooms at the Inn the weekend of our wedding. There was a University moving in and a PGA championship in town. They even gave away our bridal suite. Luckily, the bridal party was able to stay in a historic house behind the Inn, but all of our guests had to stay 30 min away in Greensboro. They managed to relocate 4 roomful of people- but then when our guests called to book those rooms, they said they were all booked up... a serious lack of communication.
The week before the wedding, I emailed Mena for a final bill- I included the guest count, amount of alcohol, etc. A week and 2 days later I got back a "rough" food estimate. I did not get a final total for the wedding until after all the wedding guests left and I had to personally meet with the staff to pay the bill, instead of enjoying my wedding night. Then they tried to overcharge us $500 for the facility fee.
The bar tending staff was horrible during the wedding. We had 2 bars, and only one was manned at a time- which means we paid to have 2 bottles of each wine opened (costing us about $200) and not having anyone to serve them. They also put a tip jar out for our guests to tip them- despite us paying 30% gratuity included in our price.
The coordinator, Mena, didn't show up until 4pm on the day of the wedding and left at 6pm right after the ceremony. She was less than helpful with dealing with the staff.
This is just the tip of the iceburg of things that the Inn did to cause enormous amounts of stress for us on our wedding day. I loved the Inn, but was so disappointed with the staff. The food however, was fabulous. All of our guests raved about it. But they did almost run out of everything, even though we were 10 people below the count that we gave them.
I don't want to sound all negative, but we had a horrible experience with the Inn. But luckily my bridal party and dj were fabulous and made sure it all got taken care of so none of the other guests knew what was happening behind the scenes.
Beautiful venue for a wedding with 125 people or less, approx. I had my ceremony and reception there. I didn't have to bother with a thing... They took care of everything the day of. Wonderful people to work with. Check out their website. The pictures don't do it justice though. Located in downtown High Point, NC, the Inn is intimate, captivating, and airy. I highly recommend this location. The canopy area provides shade and shelter from the elements, and the architechure makes for great pictures. I loved every minute of it. It was not too big, not too small... Just right.
