Booked room online for "king bed two person hot tub on private deck" When we arrived our room had no deck or hot tub. When we asked the desk clerk she stated the hotel was over booked even though the parking lot was less than half full. After some complaining she finally reduced our rate by 20%.The next day I asked a different clerk which specific rooms had a hot tub for our next visit, she danced around the question and never answered me. I looked all around the property for two days and have yet to find any hot tub at all.

Room Tip: Booked room online for "king bed, two person hot tub on private deck" When we arrived our room had no deck or hot tub. Desk clerk said hotel was over booked even though parking lot was only about half full. Hotel did reduce our rate by 20% but the hot tub was the only reason we chose this hotel. The next day I asked a different clerk which specific rooms had hot tubs for our next visit, she danced around the question and would not answer. I looked everywhere around the property and have yet to find any hot tubs.

VillageInnsManager, General Manager at The Village Inns of Blowing Rock: Village Inn, responded to this reviewResponded January 22, 2014

This guest's comments are not justifiable. This reservation was booked online just hours before arrival and due to the limited number of hot tub rooms available (only 4 total) and the increased demand, we sold out in that one evening. Although this rarely happens, when a guest is overbooked, we will upgrade them, as well as extend a discount for their trouble. This guest was placed in our nicest suite which has a Jacuzzi tub, which normally rents for a much higher rate than the suite originally booked, and even discounted it further. This guest was also offered a gift certificate so they would be able to enjoy one of our rooms with the hot tub on the deck at another time. Due to concerns of the safety of the other guests staying in our hot tub rooms, we did not disclose the location of those units, and true to the description of 'private' hot tub, they are not easily seen from the back of the property. We are sorry that this guest was still not appeased by our generous offers to make this unfortunate situation 'right'.

This reveiw is based on my husband's stay at the Inn. The room was booked 3 months in advance, he arrived after 3 pm and the room was still not ready and once checked in the cleanliness of the room was unexceptable, he had to call the front desk to have someone come and clean the microwave that was a total mess.

This was a cozy, clean and affordable place to stay. Very roomy and only a 3 block walk into town. Would highly recommend it. Other places in Blowing Rock have a better view but I would rather stay somewhere close enough to town that we could easily walk.

After driving roughly 5 hours from Pawleys Island, SC to Blowing Rock, we arrived at the Village Inn during a down pour!!! But we were welcomed by Shannon...our room was ready and it was great to settle in. We were meeting our best friends from Ohio (roughly half way for both of us) and we also brought our Boykin Spaniel Brandi who was very welcome at the Inn. Our room was spacious and very clean....nicely re-decorated per the ad. Hard wood floors, king size bed, great bathroom and two huge comfy chairs. Plus a great deck with two rockers...but the weather changed for the worse. Our friends arrived shortly after we did and we met in the reception area....which was spacious and very welcoming. The inn offered a lovely happy hour with wine and snacks. Gave us time to catch up. Shannon suggested some excellent restaurants close by (thank goodness, since the temperature was dropping and the wind was hollering!). Only disappointment....the lodge/reception area was closed at 9, so we couldn't go back to there to unwind after dinner and our rooms weren't really large enough for us to hang out and play cards. Next morning(after at least three inches of snow and COLD temperatures) we met back at the lodge/reception area and had a marvelous "continental" breakfast...plenty of coffee, french toast, breakfast sandwiches, apples, yogurt, muffins, oatmeal, cereal , orange juice.....it was great! We were only a couple of blocks from downtown, but it was too cold to walk there!:( And most of the shops (Wednesday before Thanksgiving) were closed because of the weather....Tangier Mall was even closed!!!!! We spent three nights there, even brought our dog up to the reception area while we played cards. We spent 3 nights there and it was very nice. Because of the weather, the housekeeping didn't make it one day.....it wasn't really a problem for us. We had our Thanksgiving dinner near by....bottom line, marvelous quiet location (even though on the major route), homey rooms, welcoming staff...AND pet friendly...we will definitely go back!

Room Tip: Because we have a dog, we asked for the end unit-120...IF our dog barked, she didn't bother anyone (our friends had the adjoining room)

We stayed only 1 night at The Village Inn in Blowing Rock, but enjoyed it a lot. The room was spacious, nicely decorated, clean, with all the amenities one would need, nice balcony with rocking chairs, BBQ facilities in the patio, helpful and very friendly personnel, good breakfast, comfortable lobby, close to grocery. We are glad that we stayed with The Village Inn although there are many choices in Blowing Rock.

Room Tip: As all the rooms are on one level, they are all equally good concerning location.
