“Nice Inn -”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I was disappointed in the cleanliness this stay. Usually this place is kept quite clean, but not this
time. There was a coffee stirrer in the kitchen floor when we checked in, and it was still there
when we left. There were also crumbs all around from previous quests, and a ball behind the
couch. How often is this room vacuumed? There is also not enough seating in the common room where breakfast and evening wine is served. It is a great location, but we feel the overall quality
may be slipping.

Room Tip: room was nice,,,,House keeping was slack,,,,,not very good,,,,,for the price they should at least va...

This was our third time staying at the Ridgeway Inn. It's always been a little pricey but worth it for a quality room within rught off of main street in Blowing Rock.

When making our last reservations, we mentioned that we were celebrating my husband's birthday this weekend. When we arrived, we were thrilled to learn that they had upgraded us to a suite! It was roomy and beautiful. The two bedrooms, fireplace, full kitchen, and tub with jets made this an extra special experience for our family. As repeat customers, they went the extra mile to take care of us.

We can't wait to come back here. I will never want to stay anywhere else in Blowing Rock!

Stayed at Ridgeway Inn in July of 2012 for the very first time. The location is awesome as it is basically right on main street. The rooms were very quaint and it gave you that cottage feeling. The deck area is neat ot be abel to sit outside and enjoy the evening or the morning. Rates are a little pricey but then again most of them are in Blowing Rock. We wanted to stay in town on this visit so we gave it a chance. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get an upper leveler room.

My husband and I just stayed at the Ridgeway Inn and the pictures we saw before booking were quite deceptive. Our room had a terrible moldy smell and had torn carpeting. The bathroom had been remodeled with a new toilet and a new sink, but absolutely NO shelving or anything to place toiletries on so one was constantly digging into luggage. There were not even hooks. There was not a full length mirror either. All but one of the light bulbs in the bathroom were burnt out and it was very dark. After 4 pm, we never had any hot water so shaving and washing at night was a chore. On the plus side, it was quiet, within walking distance and the front desk personnel were very nice. They did deliver on the afternoon wine serving and breakfast was adequate. In all, though, it was much more expensive than it was worth.

Just wanted to let the management of Ridgeway Inn that they have a wonderful place. My husband, son, and daughter-in-law stayed two nights there and thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's a perfect location for strolling through Blowing Rock's Main Street shops and we were very happy with our rooms and the breakfast available each morning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you for making our first trip to Blowing Rock so enjoyable....we will be back!

Room Tip: Corner suites are more spacious and quiet.

The Ridgeway Inn is in a great location - walking distance from the charming stores and restaurants of Blowing Rock. The rooms were clean and comfy and the continental breakfast was very impressive. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. I thought I had lost a necklace and they went above and beyond to help me find it! The only tiny complaint I had was that there were no full length mirrors in the rooms, but overall it was a wonderful stay!

This was our second stay at the Ridgeway Inn. First stay was in the Waunahousee suite last Fall which was fabulous. This stay was in a regular room with two queen beds and at $159.00 per night we thought the room was quaint but a bit of a disappointment. The room was smaller than I expected and the window unit a/c didn't keep our room cool enough during the night. There was dried toothpaste on the holder from a prior guest as well as dried soapy residue in the soap dish from a prior guest. The bathroom door would only stay open if you nudged the power strip over that was in the floor to use it as a door stop. The beds had great linens and were very comfortable. The staff was great too. I'm sure the price had a lot to do with the Inn's location and not just what the room amenities offered. We likely will stay there again but will try a different type of room next time.
