This is the type of Mom and Pop motel that we are usually drawn to. We booked for 2 nights but with the outer bands of hurricane Sally overnight it just poured and was not going to let up until the next day. My husband and I both went to the office to cancel our second night and they would not refund our money they said there was a 7 day cancellation notice even though when we viewed the hotel on Tripadvisor and Hotels.com it said Free Cancelation. We ended up booking from the motel office and I promise you no one ever mentioned the 7 days. We left at 8:00 am as we were not going to be held hostage by our $100. Now he did say if they rented the room we would get refunded. Hahaha that's funny how would we ever know? He said "we're honest" but not refunding our money is very greedy and dishonest. Now about the room. Very, very small, cozy and charming I guess, but uncomfortable bed, no where to put your luggage except on the floor and no place to put your toiletries.in the bathroom. My husband wanted to take a shower that night but there was no hot water. Great location, walking distance to downtown Blowing Rock, nicely kept premises. We would NEVER stay again. In twenty five years of travelling we've only had this happen to us once. Shame on you! I've read the owner's responses to any kind of negative feedback so go ahead and make excuses and put blame on the reviewer/guest but take a good long look in the mirror and you'll see who is to blame.…
The Hemlock Inn was more than we expected. The staff was very friendly and right there if you needed them. The room was very nice and clean. It has everything you need and more. We can't wait to go back again when the leaves change. Wonderful weekend get away!
Good location and pleasant staff. Very outdated, not particularly clean. Room was so musty our luggage even smelled of it after one night. Found things left by the previous occupant, so how thoroughly was the room cleaned?
Had a great stay at the Hemlock Inn. Our room was very clean. The decor was kind of rustic like a cabin. The location is great for walking to shopping and eating down town Blowing Rock. We also enjoyed sitting out at the gazebo in the evenings with the fire going. We plan to go back in the fall
Excellent, friendly, HONEST, Clean place. One thing i like most of all- NO SMOKING IN ROOM AND NO PETS ALLOWED- I smoked years ago and I have two big Labs They belong outside. Don't mean to be offensive, that is the way i feel
