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

Four women visiting for a girls get away weekend with bad Plumbing issues, No ice and No wifi!! Wifi issue blamed on AT&T but connect says it's not available at all. I asked for ice and was told to drive a couple blocks and get it myself.

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
