“Great hotel in dowtown Blowing Rock.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We happen to be in Blowing Rock area for a wedding so the hotel was one of the preselected places to stay. Beautiful setting, comfortable rooms and within walking distance of downtown Blowing Rock. We booked a suite which had a nice view of the mountains along with a gas fireplace. This area is full of quaint shops. Nice place to stay if you are in the mountains of NC.
The customer service was great and the staff friendly. Feed the Ducks!!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms our friends had were very nice.

This place far exceeded our expectations. Pleasantly surprised by the free continental breakfast, (southwest eggs, biscuits, sausage, gravy, fruit, plus the basics you expect like cereal and bagels). We had great service and a terrific room overlooking the duck pond. Very clean, and a super comfortable king bed. They have DVD players in the ent. center for your videos. There is both a fridge and microwave if you need them. The indoor pool looked incredibly nice, although we did not take advantage of it this time. We were on the first floor of the main building, so it was convienient to the lobby and parking. The suite is amazing, and I would definitely stay here again. Can't beat the location either. I know other reviewers had different feelings, about hot water it seems, but we had zero problems with the hot water and it was a peak fall week and they were fully booked. My kids are already asking when we can go back, and I am hoping it is soon!

Room Tip: Ask for the main building with a view of the duck pond The suite on the first floor has all you cou...

The room was too dark with dark comforters on the beds. It had two small lamps and bulbs in the lamps not bright enough for reading. The three chairs were all alike and very uncomfortable, especially to read or watch TV. The shower water was either too hot or too cold and very hard to adjust. The walls are thin as I could hear snoring from next room and I am hard of hearing. I told the staff on check-in that my husband was ill and did not come, so there was to be only one charge for the buffet which was planned that evening. I was told it "would be taken care of". Of course, I was charged for two and had to request a credit. The plus for this hotel is the location for shopping on the main street.

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. There was no hot water and our dark dingy room over looked a reception room below with loud music blasting till 1:30 in the morning. The worst part of the entire stay was that the customer service was horrible. The people at the front desk did not care that there was no hot water or that we weren't able to sleep b/c of loud music. The worst $200 per night hotel I've ever stayed in.

Great location. That sums up the positives. For the rate of this hotel would at least expect hot water in the shower. Was told that the hotel was at "capacity" which is why we had no hot water. For $200 a night, I would expect this to never be a problem. Don't ever get put in room 105. This room and the one next to it evidently overlooks the downstairs reception room. There was a loud DJ/party until 1am....considering that we had to be up and out early the next AM, not a good saturday night. Called the front desk to let them know we should have at least been told about this before dropping $200 a night, and was rudely hung up on. They did not care.

In addition, rooms are dingy, dark, not that nice, old, beds uncomfortable, etc..You would be better off camping than staying here.

We stayed in the main hotel in 2007 and it was wonderful. Everything was over the top. Great beds and quiet room. This stay our room was in the hotel they own behind the main hotel and it was definitely not the same experience. The service we received was good at check in. The bed in the room was also good. The entry hall and elevators had a terrible odor in them and it was on all the floors. Our room was very noisy, you could hear all the doors close and also noise from downstairs, plus the air conditioning was noisy and ran constantly. I would recommend if you make reservations with this Inn that you request the main hotel and not the poor kept building in the back, which we paid the same amount as we would have in the nicer building. Very disappointed.

Thank you for your kind words about our Front Desk staff and our beds! Many of our guests prefer the Main Building for its age and charm - some people ask, if possible, for the same room number on each of their visits! Others of our guests prefer the Annex Building, which is newer and more contemporary; I'm so sorry you were disappointed in your stay there! I'm going to investigate your concerns with my Maintenance and Housekeeping managers. The Annex rooms have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs and required metal fire doors. We have recently replaced the carpets in the hallways. The rooms on the second floor of this building are undergoing a beautiful renovation. Our air conditioning system is controlled by guests, and the air conditioning fan in each room can be set to "Constant On", "Auto On", or "Off" with a switch on the thermostat. We staff the hotel 24/7, and our staff is there to help our guests with any issues, from air conditioners to noise from other guests. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance; we'll be happy to take care of you. Thank you for staying with us!

Nice location, but hotel is in disrepair. Several issues with room. Bed too soft. Room Too loud. Hotel in this location should be much nicer. More like a super 8 off the Interstate, than a mountain resort property. No refrigerator. Room too dark.

Room Tip: Don't get in the annex at bottom of hill

I'm glad you like our location in Blowing Rock - a 1-block stroll to downtown & being next door to two great restaurants is a luxury! We appreciate your response, and we apologize for anything that's made you dissatisfied. If you've stayed here before, you'll notice that, just this year, we've painted the exterior of both our buildings, resurfaced the parking lot, renovated our Ballroom and Lounge, and are upgrading rooms in the Annex building. We've renovated our air conditioning system to reduce noise and increase efficiency and upgraded our WIFI. Our mattresses are manufactured to our specifications in SC, but we have bed boards guests can request; these create a very firm feel to a mattress. If you choose to stay here again, please let us know if you'd like this or a refrigerator. 1/3 of our rooms come with refrigerators, and we can bring a refrigerator and/or microwave to any room on request. We do understand your concern with lighting, and that's something we're working on. With the new mandates for 10% immediate electricity reduction, we've had to install compact fluorescent bulbs, which produce fewer lumens. We're using the second "better" generation of these bulbs now, and we're still not satisfied with the results. Please know that our staff is here to help make you comfortable during your stay - we love to take care of people! Thank you for your comments; they'll be shared among our management team. I hope you enjoy your future visit to Blowing Rock, and if there's anything we at Meadowbrook Inn can do to help you, please don't hesitate to ask.
