“Horrible Beds, Dirty and Old Facilities - Not Worth the Money”
Reviewed September 3, 2007

Hotel is one of the worst properties Days Inn has in its portfolio. Rooms are old and dirty. The rooms with two beds are doubles (not queen) -- and the mattresses are hard as a rock. Floor might be slightly less comfortable. Two adults cannot sleep on these beds comfortably.

Everything about the hotel was done on the cheap -- no pride of ownership in this facility.

Rates are overpriced. Alot of other nicer choices in area. Will not stay there ever again.

The poorest design is the bathroom. The toilet is placed maybe 4 inches from the wall. If you want to use the toilet and have to sit down -- you have to sit sideways. I weigh 175 pounds -- can't imagine what it would be like for someone larger.

Building facility itself is poorly maintained. Lights outside back entrance we're not lit. Back doors could not lock. Hotel has ZERO security if you stay there - be aware.

Chambermaids are nice however -- we gave them a big tip as they probably don't have alot of options for work in that area.

  • Liked — Location relative to city if Blowing Rock.
  • Disliked — Facilities were poorly maintained. Beds were low quality.

We chose a larger room with fridge/microwave. The room was very large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. For a no-frills place to stay, I would recommend this hotel. It exceeded the expectations I had.

We stayed at the Days Inn in Blowing Rock N.C. for (1) night only- the room was nice and clean- and very comfortable. WE were very dissappointed with the Hot Tub- It was just barely warm- others complained also. We reported this to the front desk and they brought a thermometer out and said it was 97 degrees- - That was a joke- the indoor pool was not even warm enough to tolerate at all. They said it was 80 degrees...For this price of this room, we feel it was very misleading and we have stayed at Days Inn throughout the carolinas on many occassions.. There were very many other places we could have stayed...vacancies everywhere...The front desk manager did not seem concerned, never offered an opology and we were not happy with our stay. This is not a very customer friendly place to stay.....just uninterested in the feelings of those who choose to stay there.... We were looking forward to the pool and hot tub- and planned our stay for for that very reason for a quick weekend get-away to relax.....

  • Liked — nice room- food service close by
  • Disliked — hot tub- pool , front office staff

On a short getaway to the NC Mountains we choose to stay at the Days Inn in Blowing Rock. We arrived on a Wednesday and left on Saturday morning. First impression the outside didnt have much of an appeal, but once inside seemed to be a clean place. However, the hotel is a cold place, Front desk always said that the heat was on but I dont think they finally ever turned any heat on in the place until Friday night with other customers started showing up. I guess they figured it was too much overhead to keep the place heated. Of course all the rooms have the individual heaters, but the heater in our room was annoying. It would stay on and when it did go off it would come back on in ten seconds. I believe this was due to no heat anywhere else in the building. There was only like two other rooms rented out Wed. and Thurs. Overall this was an okay stay, but if I did it again, I think I would stay in Boone.

From the outside and the lobby, this hotel looks to be OK, but at a price of just under $100 it was extremely disappointing. We had to go back three times to the front desk to get the key to work and when we got in the accomodations were horrible. The wallpaper was falling off the walls, everything in the bathroom was old and falling apart, there was mold in the shower and on the shower curtain, not to mention the room was incredibly dusty. I wouldn't even touch the blanket on the bed, it was all balled up. I wouldn't even go the pool, just tried to imagine I was somewhere else. I advised the concierge of the condition of the room and he didn't offer to adjust our bill or offer any kind words. Go into Boone and stay at one of the better chains.

Stayed December 2006
