We had purchased reservation vouchers on Groupon, which had a redemption period of one month (from the time we had bought it). Astonishingly, when we called to make a reservation, the receptionist informed us that they were out of rooms for this promotion. Considering that only 5 people had bought it at the time we purchased, I cannot fathom how... More

Pluses: The room was very spacious, king bed and big flat screen TV. Nice duvet. Minuses: Small bath tub. The desk attendant was dodgy about the price, and breakfast was rubbish. Don't wake up believing you will get a proper cooked breakfast or soy milk.

Hillwinds is a very conveniently located place to stay in the lovely town of Blowing Rock. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the staff very helpful. Would definitely stay again and recommend

We visited Blowing Rock, NC, but had our 2 year old yellow lab with us. The Hillwinds Inn has 2 very nice pet friendly rooms, and were very accommodating. They had wine and cheese in the late afternoon, and breakfast. The rooms had wi-fi, and a kitchenette. The Inn is within walking distance of the downtown are. It was perfect... More

If you love Hampton Inns, you probably won't like this motel. It's a bit of a throwback to the 60s--you can park right outside your door. The room is small but charming--just like this beautiful town. Very clean and very safe.

The entrance to the room was like a motel. The room was pretty small. The bathroom was really small. Close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. Good price and location. We stayed during early January and had to travel through snow and the unplowed parking lot to get the breakfast in the main building. There weren't a lot of... More

While we were on our way there we got a phone call from someone in the office asking if we wanted to stay at the Village Inn since we were the only guests that were booked for the Hillwinds Inn. We declined because we were already looking forward to staying at the Hillwinds Inn. The room was lovely, it was... More

This is an adorable little cluster of 'Inns' within the charming little town of Blowing Rock, NC. A bit pricey, but still very quaint and adorable...just a block from the town so within walking distance (which we did) to the shops and restaurants. Two of these Inns (including this one) are PET-FRIENDLY and we saw many other people there with... More

Everything was spotless. There was a glitch in our reservation so we were upgraded to a larger suite. It was beautiful & the gas fireplace was heavenly. The inn is within walking distance to downtown. We didn't make it to breakfast so no review there. I would certainly stay again.

Room just adequate , over priced for accommodation. Parking terrible, trees near cottage need to be trimmed, scratch pickup truck. Good location to Main Street. Bathroom very small. Nothing to write home about. Probably wouldn't stay again.
