All I can say is that Dennis K had it very wrong. Took my Harley for a weekend ride and decided to book a room at the Hotel Blessing. Definitely old school but that's what is to be expected. No computerized registration but lots of good conversation and a great experience. The common areas are not air conditioned and the... More

It is still "fix your own plate" and you can have as much as you want. Helen greets me and my children with hugs every time. If they eat their vegies, she sometimes has candy or a balloon for them behind the counter. My husband required us to take our own plates to the kitchen when we were finished, but... More

We have been frequenting this establishment since the mid 1970's. Back then, you grabbed a plate then stepped into the kitchen and filled your plate from the stove. you could make as many trips as you wanted. Now, the health department no longer allows customers to go into the kitchen and help themselves from the stove. The manager of the... More

We were very disappointed by our visit for lunch at this hotel. A beautiful old building in a quiet, peaceful little town, along with some recommendations posted online had built our hopes up for a memorable. We were very disappointed. The food was very mediocre on the Friday we visited, and it was stone cold when we dished it up.... More

While traveling with relatives from the Houston area on January 18, 2016, my wife and I experienced the rudest restaurant service imaginable at the Blessing Hotel restaurant.

I stopped here for lunch after several referrals from colleagues. It is primarily a local haunt. They offer a luscious lunchtime spread complete with meatloaf, butter beans, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, green salad, potato and peach cobbler. Its serve yourself so once a waistband acknowledges you, feel free to grab a plate and head over to the stove. It's like $10

The quiet murmur of small town talk, barely audible over the smacking of lips and the sighs of contentment, interspersed with random crunching of fried chicken and chicken fried steaks. Leaving here hungry would be your own damn fault.

A good deal and actually the only deal in town. That doesn't diminish the charm of this place. The room I had (10) could have used closer attention to cleaning. The floor is also quite slanted but it's a 109 year old building so there is that. Bed was pretty comfy and I got a good nights rest. So no... More
