This hotel did the job I guess, as we just needed a place to crash for the night and intended to get up very early in the morning to go hiking but I was really not impressed.
The continental breakfast was just okay (the hard-boiled eggs were much too cold in my opinion, and I the selection was very small compared to hotel breakfasts I have seen in the past). I "upgraded" from a room with two queens to a room with a king, and I thought the room was very small and I regretted paying the extra $5. My biggest complaint is that the carpet in our room was wet! I didn't notice when we first checked in, but after dinner when we went to settle in for the night the floor felt disgusting on my feet. I think it was not dirty, but wet from being cleaned... but it was a very unpleasant tactile sensation either way and I had to wear shoes around the room for the whole night until the moment I actually got into bed to sleep. Very annoying. The bathroom was pretty small and the toilet was tucked back under the counter which meant the seat would not stay up. I don't really think that is a big deal, but my boyfriend fount it to be a mild annoyance and a lot of other reviewers here seem to really hate that too.
I think the next time we go to Blowing Rock I would rather pay more money for one of the many places within walking distance of downtown Main Street.
