“Classic hotel with impressive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

While on a 2500 mile road trip vacation we randomly stopped at this classic hotel/inn. The newly restored basic room was pleasant, clean, and comfortable. Free wifi and full breakfast added to our enjoyment.
The exceptional part of our experience was the recovery of a large amount of cash we accidentally dropped in the room. The housekeeper found it, brought it to the front desk, and had it counted in front of two other staff members. They then sealed it in an envelope, signed it and placed it in the safe. By early afternoon they made contact with me and agreed to mail me a check that day. It is refreshing to encounter such honest, responsible people.
If you are in the area we recommend a night at the Inn.

Inside this beautiful Inn, is the best kept secret in all of Blowing Rock, and we are locals and have ate everywhere in the town and nothing compaires to the food that Chef James Welch will prepare for you inside The Laural Room go by and check him out you will NOT be sorry. My personal favorite is his HALIBUT... He is the Best Chef this side of the Mason Dixion Line.

We've been traveling to Boone/Blowing Rock for over 30 years, but had never stayed here. Sweet daughter, a historic properties buff, made reservations for all of us here for the ASU vs. Furman game. We just loved it. We stayed in the historic section, 3rd floor. Room was a little warm, possibly due to unseasonably warm weather for this area. We opened windows and put on the ceiling fan and it cooled down pretty quickly. Our bathroom (room 320) was huge for an older hotel. Shower was splendid with great water pressure (better than a "showermassage.") Our room faced Hwy. 321. Next time, we will ask for a back-side or side room so that we don't get any traffic noise (light sleepers). Bed linens and pillows were SUPERB!!

We had breakfast (included in the nightly rate) on Sunday. There were 4 choices of "hot breakfast": 2 eggs, bacon/sausage, toast/biscuits, your choice of drinks (OJ, Milk, Coffee), OR Homemade Waffle w same sides above, OR French Toast w same sides above, OR oatmeal/choice of cereal with fruit, yogurt and choice of beverages above.

We will definitely stay there again. I think we have thought in the past that this was a pricey hotel....just not true when you consider all the amenities such as the cooked to order hot breakfast. A beautiful place, rich in history and character, with very courteous staff. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper and want to stay in the "historic" section, ask for a backsi...

The history of this Inn is remarkable. The staff was awesome. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The common areas were very nice. The price was higher than I normally pay, but it was peak week for color.

We came to the hotel for a weekend getaway just as the weather was turning cold and the leaves were turning beautiful colors. We were especially grateful the hotel allowed us to bring along our dog. The free wi-fi was also appreciated. We wanted to experience a unique, historical locale, but didn't count on the noise of the steam radiators at night. The staff were very swift and pleasant in relocating us to a room with modern heating - it's well worth the upgrade! The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. Although more old than charming, it met all our needs and was good value compared to the cost of other hotels in the area. Our favorite and most memorable part of our stay was the food in the hotel's restaurant. The amazing chef creates unique dishes with beautiful presentation and wonderful flavors.

Room Tip: "Supreme" rooms facing the golf course and with modern heaters are quieter inside and out.

The hotel has definetely a historical feeling when you walk through its corridor. The service is good but nothing outstanding. It is very close to the city which is what we were looking for. We only spent two nights there and mainly to sleep, so can not comment on other services. The price per night wasn't cheap but that was a very busy weekend for the region and we were luck to find a last minute vacancy in Green Park.

We recently stayed at the Green Park Inn wanting to see the Fall colors. Other reviewers are correct in that it is right on the main highway, which is currently being widened. The hotel is very charming from the approach to it and the lobby sets the stage for a trip back in time.

The hotel was built in 1882 and had such visitors as Annie Oakley, Jimmy Stewart, Herbert Hoover and more.

We had a room on the first floor overlooking the rear yard. The room itself was good sized and had a nice hardwood floor with an area rug and a flat screen tv.
The bathroom was very dated though with fixtures likely left from a 1977 renovation at the hotel. The lighting was poor with only a single fixture vanity light to illuminate the room.

However if you want to experience a bit of history, it's a minor inconvenience. The staff was very friendly and the complementary full breakfasts were wonderful!
