Very nice clean room for an older establishment. Close to downtown (within walking distance) and all the activities! Great variety of breakfast items. Easy check in and out. Price seemed alittle high but comparing other locations it goes with what the area allows.

Nestled in Blowing Rock's old town, this is a charming, old facility within walking distance to one of the many surrounding restaurants. It is also conveniently located to App State and the Tanger Outlets.

I only met and or spoke with one employee...Mary Clare(?) very pleasant and accommodating . Hotel, more like a motel, is very clean, ample sized room with a free decent breakfast. However, I found their room pricing to be very strange and inconsistent. I first called one of their sister inns, Village Inn. They quoted a higher price than their... More

Older motel that has been cleaned up a bit. The staff was very nice. The Wifi is not so good, but lets be honest ... that should be the least of your concerns. Hotel is in down town Blowing Rock and close to pubs, wine bars and restaurants. Blowing Rock has become a little "trendy", but if you want a... More

This hotel was very nice and the staff was the greatest. Very accommodating and willing to help. The rooms and facility were neat and clean. The location made it easy to walk to town and restaurants. The morning breakfast and afternoon cocktail hour were as good as it gets. Look forward to returning to this property.

This hotel was perfect for a girls weekend. Close to shops and restaurants. Christine was very helpful in providing us info on the area. She even made reservations for us for dinner. We enjoyed the wine social and snacks every night. The breakfast was small, which was fresh fruit, cereal, yogurts, bagels, and coffee. The room had 2 double beds... More

We stayed in the Davidson Suite, and would recommend that to anyone looking to stay here. For the small upgrade fee, we got all of our moneys worth. The room was spacious, had a balcony, hot tub, and fabulous duel headed walk-in shower. The staff was more than accommodating, and always greeted us with a smile. They even checked in... More

I booked the Davidson Suite at the Hillwinds Inn on-line for our weekend stay on 1/23/15 - 1/25/15. When we arrived to check-in we found out that the Davidson Suite had already been booked before us and that we were put in the Tarheel Suite instead. My husband and I were very disappointed because we purposely chose the Davidson Suite... More
