We stayed here on a visit to Blowing Rock. It is in a great location to attractions. However, there is construction in the area. The gym area is small but does offer 2 treadmills, an elliptical machine, and a free weights area. The hotel seems to be a bit old but the staff is friendly and the selection for the... More

We stayed here as I had enough free points for a free stay. We also liked the free breakfast option (which was very expansive) and the pool (indoor but small square). It is a bit dated, but clean and staff was friendly. I think the price on the website without points seemed reasonable after stamping especially for high season (July).

We have stayed here several times. A really nice hotel and ideal location for the area if staying with a family. The only thing I will say is that the Gym is looking very outdated and the pool is a bit tatty round the edges. However, that shouldn't take away from it being a lovely hotel and a very nice... More

We thought that this motel had a lot of perks. It was close to town and attractions. The breakfast that was included was pretty good. Like most kids, our daughter loved the pool. The view from our room on the third floor included some mountains and rolling hills. Overall, it was fairly quiet and we all slept well. Things here... More

Front desk staff was very friendly and asked us if we had AAA or any other opportunities for discounts when we checked in. The room, however was stuffy and damp feeling. The air conditioner kept turning off by itself if we weren't constantly moving around in the room, so we would come back to a warm and damp room and... More

The lobby is attractive and spacious. There is a connected room adjacent to where the front desk is and it looks almost like a "living room" with comfy couch and lamps on tables and a computer desk. The breakfast room is large and can accommodate alot of people which is a good thing because it was very, very crowded every... More

I didn't expect a good hotel to be in the middle of nowhere, but this place is very nice. Front desk is very friendly, they made sure to recognize Platinum status (the welcome snack was a very tasty trail mix-not salty, not sugary, I actually finished it instead of throwing away the usual IHG welcome snacks:-) Room was nice, clean,...

Booked at the last minute, a little concerned because of some of the reviews. I was very pleased though. Very convenient location near lots of restaurants and things to see. It does overlook the lowe's but didn't really bother me, the mountains were still viewable in the distance. Room was very clean, pool was clean. We were on the third... More
