“Fine hotel”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Clean and economical. Two doors down from an Outback Steakhouse. We spent a restful night here after driving 290 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway is reason enough to visit Blowing Rock. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff who are not rushed and focused on you! The property is a bit lacking, main road literally out the front door, no outside property use to speak of. The hotel picture suggests a cabin type hotel in the mountains. Not so. With that said, if you are looking for fabulous customer service, great accommodations, and a breakfast that can not be beat, this hotel is for you! Great family or business option with amenities to meet the average travelers needs. Yes, I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night during our two day trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The reception desk was very helpful recommending places to eat. The room was huge, very clean and very nice. The view outside was also amazing! Will stay here again if in the area!

Stayed for one night at the start of our trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway.Helpful and efficient reception staff.Roomclean and comfortable but the hardest beds we' ve had so far this holiday.the quality of bed making leaves a lot to be desired.The bottom sheet& under mattress covers were rumpled & needed remaking before we could sleep in them.Having said that, we slept well.A bonus here is the heated indoor pool.It has a hoist to help the disabled in and out of the pool.Breakfast was all we hoped for including bacon and egg.Also a pancake maker.Amlpe poking and eateries within walking distance.

We stayed for two nights while in the Boone/Blowing Rock area. It is very close to the Tanger Outlets and a handful of restaurants. The room was nice and clean. It does not have a great view of the mountains. The price was great and the breakfast was okay.

I stayed at this property two weeks ago and had a nice stay. The entrance to the hotel is kind of tricky if you're not paying attention (there's road construction in front of the hotel). Check in was kind of slow but it was a computer issue, not the girl at the front desk.

I was given a room on the top floor, on the back side of the hotel. I seriously think I was the only person on that floor. I didn't hear a sound all night.

The room was clean, the beds comfy.

The only problem I had was it was COLD in the room. The heat was off of course when I checked in but even after that, the room never really got warm. The bathroom floor was like standing on ice! I'd still stay at this hotel again if I was in the area, though. I'd just make sure it wasn't in the winter when I visited.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side of the hotel are quiet.

On a whim, my wife and I decided to take an overnight trip to blowing rock to hit the outlets and downtown shops. Using our AA discount, we got a two queen bed room for $94 per night. Parking was plentiful, Check in was a breeze, and it is 5 steps up or down to either of the floors.

Rooms were standard size with desk and a power strip offering plenty of spots to plug in all your electronics. Wifi worked fine. Room was clean. Breakfast was a hot express with eggs, ham, and biscuit and gravy on top of the usual continental items.

The hotel is walking distance to foggy rock, outback, and BBQ restaurants. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Odd number rooms are on the back side of the hotel opposite hwy 321.
