We made our reservations only days in advance and we were thrilled to learn that Hillwinds is pet friendly to well manored dogs. The room and amenities, refrigerator, microwave and kurig type coffee maker were high quality and the beds were extremely comfortable. Happy hour with wine and snacks in the evening and continental breakfast in the morning and easy... More

We spent one night at the "Inn." It was quaint, but more of a motel than an Inn. Originally made onkine reservation for Village Inn, then received a phine call from them saying they overbooked and wanted to move us to Hillwinds Inn for same price, but smaller beds! I asked for a discount and was given $10.00 off. When... More

We stayed 1 night in this charming Inn on Aug.3, 2015to escape the heat and enjoy the clean mountain air. It was our second trip to the area, first time staying at the Inn. If and when we come back we would stay again for sure. Very clean, quaint and walking distance to town. Great breakfast is also a plus.

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

Well my husband and I finally got to stay in the Davidson Suite after it was booked out from under us the last time we stayed here. We were given one free night stay to come back so we did just last Saturday. This is a very nice suite don't get me wrong but it is starting to need some... 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
