My wife and I stayed one night for our 10-year anniversary, and we enjoyed it. The staff was helpful with everything, including restaurant and skiing recommendations. They even took pictures of us outside the hotel to help us remember the trip. The property itself has been renovated to have more of a mountain feel, and the landscaping was nice.
The room was clean and warm. And we enjoyed having the hot tub on the deck. The hot tub area isn't 100% private, but it's private enough to relax and enjoy yourself. The wine & cheese snack reception was appreciated because it held us over until we ate a late dinner after skiing. The breakfast offerings were basic and good, but nothing spectacular.
The hotel itself is not on the Main Street portion of Blowing Rock, and we knew that. It is within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants, etc. The hotel is very close to Outback Steakhouse as well as local places Twigs, Sledgehammer Charlie's, Woodlands barbecue, Crippen's and more. And the Tanger shopping outlets are a short drive away, as is the Appalachian Ski Mountain resort (very close).
The only thing we weren't totally happy with was the shower. It's a clawfoot tub, and my wife didn't like not having anywhere to put the soap and shampoo (I had to use the back of the toilet for that).
If you want a hot tub room, be sure to ask for it. And if you want a room that is (or isn't) pet-friendly, ask for it.
I can't recall the last time we stayed somewhere local on a vacation. We also had never stayed in an old-style "drive-up" hotel where you park right outside your room. But that was never an issue. Overall we enjoyed it.
