We stopped here while passing through on our way north. Chose this one over the one in Boone because it was 2/3 the cost and is basically the same hotel. Front staff was exceptionally courteous and friendly. The room was very clean and beds comfortable. Liked having the fridge, microwave and computer desk. The front desk clerk also gave us... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was all set upon arrival and was cleaned and beds changed everyday. My problem was that we could not figure out how to turn the coffee pot on. After calling the front desk, we were told to turn the light switch on. That did solve the problem, but maybe a little... More

Mattress, bed sheets, pillows, breakfast, location, staff, everything was perfect and clean. Probably if the bathroom is just a pinch more roomy. Also as of June 2014 the road is under repairs and you may miss the entrance road easily. Anyway, will stay again no doubt. I wanted to buy some of these pillows for myself, but failed to check...

Stayed here for 2 nights the first of June to celebrate an anniversary and birthday. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and I loved the pancake machine!!! All staff were friendly and helpful, especially Nikki with the breakfast team. Thanks for a great little vacation.

We visit Boone frequently for App State and found all the hotels we have tried there to be underwhelming. On a lark, we decided to try this hotel in Blowing Rock (15 minutes away) and found it be be better and less expensive. It has one of the best breakfast buffets we've seen for a 3star hotel. Rooms are clean,... More
