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

My family and I along with 25 other guests have stayed here for the last 2 years. We have been pleased with the rooms and most especially the employees. From housekeeping to management, everyone is friendly and are willing to help you in whatever way they can. This year when we arrived my husband and I needed help with printing... More

My husband and I went to Blowing Rock for a weekend getaway. We stayed at the Hillwinds Inn and couldn't have been happier with the service and the attention we received from the staff. (Even the housekeeping staff was friendly!!) Lazara, the manager and Wayne, were both very friendly and went out of their way to be sure we had... More

My husband and I stayed here at the Davidson Suite for our honeymoon in later September. The suite was lovely and we especially enjoyed the daily wine/snack hour in the lobby area. The one complaint we had was the housekeeping. Most people would appreciate the constant and in-depth cleaning they do, however, they go too far. We had leftover pizza... More

We've been going to Blowing Rock for about 25 years. Hillwinds Inn was the first place we stayed, we have stayed there more than anywhere, and we just spent four nights there again. However, it's their location within walking distance of Main St that keeps us there. We are usually disappointed mostly with the bathrooms. They are not kept up,... More

We only booked one nite in Blowing Rock while riding the Blue Ridge Parkway & ended up spending a 2nd here. Very nice inside, small, but extremely clean, most comfortable beds ever! Nice stroll to Main Street where all the shops/restaurants are. Will definitely book here again our next trip back.

My husband and I were finally able to take a vacation after the death of our son last year and were excited about staying in Blowing Rock. I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. Bathroom had mold on the shower wall and curtain. All the lights in the room were so dim you couldn't see well. Overhead fan... More

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
