We visit Blowing Rock regularly, and this is a favorite motel of ours. The rooms have recently been updated, and have new hardwood floors, and nice comfy beds. Super location right in the village. Complimentary breakfast is just "okay". Every time we have stayed, the desk attendant is also responsible for the breakfast, and service is lacking. I would still... More

We stayed in the Davidson Suite with our infant and toddler, and we couldn't have been more pleased! The location was perfect in that we were blocks away from restaurants, shops, and a great big playground/park in downtown Blowing Rock. The suite itself had essentially a galley kitchen (perfect for families), a huge bathroom and master bedroom. Everything was lovely... More

Perfect location and really cute rooms! This hotel is really convenient to walk almost everywhere in Blowing Rock. The staff was eager to help. It's my favorite place to stay in Blowing Rock. I highly recommend it.

We spent one night there and enjoyed the inn very much. Great location within 1 block of Main Street. Room very clean and beds fine. Free parking right in front of your room. Love the rocking chairs outside the door to rooms. Quiet area. Includes breakfast which was coffee/juice and fresh bagels which was fine with us because we are... More

I was very pleased with this motel room. It is not an Inn, in that it has outside doors to each room. But we didn't care about that, just made it easier to unpack and pack. It was a lovely, comfortable room. It is a few blocks to restaurants etc, on the main street. And a half mile or so... More

We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite with a separate bedroom, microwave, frig, and fireplace. There's an adequate breakfast and a nice afternoon wine and cheese time. You can walk into town and visit the lovely gallery shops and restaurants. Staff is friendly and aims to please guests. Very pleasant place to stay.

The Hillwinds is one of three sister properties in Blowing Rock. We choose it over the other two because of its location on Sunset and just a short walk to Main St. The property is older but completely redone with hardwood floors and new fabric. The breakfast is mostly prepackaged fare but is ok. The only negative is the afternoon... More

We stayed in the Davidson Suite so we had a full kitchen, HUGE bathroom with Jacuzzi tub & 2 person shower. It was lovely. We could walk everywhere and the service was great. I can't say anything wrong about the hotel.

Our family, including a preschooler and infant, stayed here for an overnight trip to Blowing Rock. We booked through Priceline and check in and check out were easy. I called ahead and asked for a unit on the end, confirmed details of the stay and wanted to make sure our room was not a pet friendly room. They were able... More
