We stayed for 2 night during Spring Break - I am a NC teacher. The hotel was clean, and staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good - much better than I expected. The room was comfortable and clean. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for a long weekend and truly enjoyed the stay. The staff was very friendly and informative and the breakfast was all that was needed. Good nights sleep was had by all and we didn't even know there were others in the hotel it was so quiet. If any complaints: * we left with sinus problems - just... More

If you are looking for a solid hotel in blowing rock and you don't need to log cabin or rustic feel then stay here. Good room and all the necessities and the breakfast is what you need to start a day of skiing or hiking. The only thing was the pool and hot tub were down which was not listed... More

Stayed one night while passing through. During ski season or summer this place is probably kicking, but almost felt that I had the hotel to myself. Room was comfortable, small fridge, microwave. Good flat screen TV with all the usual channels. Typical floor/wall unit heater worked well, although if you aren't used to a little noise, some might find it... More

We stayed here for a week with the grand kids while skiing at Appalachian mountain. Now, this is an older hotel, so the carpet was a bit worn, the towels a little shabby and the room had that "old hotel" smell. But, with that said, we had a great stay here. The staff was wonderful, answering every question about the... More

Very modern and updated rooms with nice beds and bathrooms. The pool wasn't that great and it was lacking a hot tub, but minor gripe there. Easy to find when driving into town. And while it was far from gourmet, the included breakfast did have plenty of options and was really nice to have on the way out to a... More

Based on previous reviews, I got what I expected. This is a very average property and the only major chain hotel in BR. The heating units are loud and cycle on and off all night. The water pressure is completely random. The beds are very basic and not satisfying. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a buffet of... More
