My boyfriend and I were excited to visit Blowing Rock at the last minute this week, and we're glad to find a room here for a reasonable price. Not the cleanest, also not the best location. The shower drain was stopped up, making for a frustrating experience. Breakfast was nice. Will try to stay in local Inn's or Lodge for... More

Hotel definitely needs to work on cleaning up this facility! Carpet had dirt and debris on the steps the whole time we were there...no staff bothered to correct it. Dining room chair seats are disgusting.

Our room was comfortable and clean. All the usual amenities. The common area floors were not clean, and remained that way throughout our 2 day stay. We do wish, that as other major chains have, kiosks provided to sell necessary items that one might need while there-ie-Tylenol, toothpaste, other personal items and food items.

Early October, 2014 >> We took two rooms and were very pleased w/the quality of the Inn, beds, bathrooms, high speed (free) Internet, breakfasts, etc. This was a great choice, located not to far from downtown Blowing Rock. Indoor pool was okay. I'd stay there again.

We got this a priceline quick deal, so the price was good for this location. It was what we have come to expect from this chain, large clean room, friendly staff, very good breakfast. Location is good; although, there is major construction on that road at this time that did not interfere with stay. Pool area is less inviting than... More

This is a clean and comfortable hotel. The handicap room we received (123) was very close to the door which makes it so easy to get in and out. It included a couch which I believe could be made into a bed. The bathroom was well designed with walk-in shower and chair. Breakfast was the usual fare including pancakes. We... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise in the middle of nowhere. We stayed here for a night during a week long road trip on Blur Ridge Parkway. It is close to a really good barbecue place where we grabbed dinner. Breakfast was free. The lobby was quiet and conducive to late night studying for on-the-go students like me.

The hotel is in a good location, probably a 2 minute drive or so to the heart of downtown, and walkable if you want to do that too. It's got an indoor, heated swimming pool which was empty when we were there (near peak foliage season, in early October), so we had it to ourselves. The continental breakfast was a... More

This is the second time I have stayed here and reinforces my view that this hotel is the best value for visiting Blowing Rock.
