“Nice hotel, few restaurants nearby”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

After a sixteen hour drive, I had to stop for the night. Knowing the familiar Hampton Inn & Suites it was there that I decided to spend the night.

The hotel in Dobson is clean, comfortable and friendly, but its location for me that night left me with very few choices.

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant. When I was there in February 2012 there was one being built near the property. The winery and restaurant is several miles south on a winding backroad. That night I didn't want to drive, I needed to eat and go to bed, so I was left with Dairy Queen.

The bottom line is, if I had stayed a few miles north in Mt Airy, I wouldn't have had to have to choose from the Dairy Queen menu.

With so few choices for food in Dobson, do yourself a favor and stay at Mt Airy with a whole host of choices including the food.

Stayed during the Easter weekend on the way to West Virginia. First, for those who have commented about a lack of places to eat, a new Italian restaurant is going up right next door and will be operated by the same people who own the hotel. This is good since the actual town is at least a 5 mile drive away from the hotel. I am told that it will be somewhat "family friendly" and will be open "late". I used this trip to also eat at restaurant at the Shelton Vineyard (also owned by the same family) and used the free shuttle to get to the place. Overall, very good. My only comment is that the Fitness Room opens at 6 AM and the lock is time controlled. If you plan an early departure in the morning, no workout first!

I was driving for 12 hours and happened on a sign on Interstate 77 that said "wine,Food, and Lodging. That was all it took. The hotel is clean, nicely furnished with comfy beds,a great wine bar, friendly staff and a great breakfast bar. I will make it part of my "route" when traveling in the future.

Last time we drove through this area we stayed at the Hampton Inn in Mt. Airy. We had been looking for what is described as the only Hampton Inn with a wine bar. Since the two Hampton Inns are not all that far apart we ended up at the non wine one on our last visit. In other words, the one not connected with the Shelton Brother's vineyard. So this time through we made sure to get to the right one. Well funny thing is that at that other one (in Mt. Airy) we actually got a glass of wine free. Here we had to pay. I found that kind of funny since this one is affiliated with the vineyard. Anyway, it was a nice enough hotel. Very clean. However, I actually liked the other one better. I think this one would be better if they did have a complimentary tasting - or some food/snack/drink event when you check in. We did not have anything like that here. We did have an okay breakfast the next morning. It was only okay b/c the omelet thing they had was not very appealing. Oh well. It was clean and that's a good thing. Our daughter liked the pool. It was small, but not very many people there. Also, they seem to be building a restaurant next door - looks like it will be Italian. That will be nice b/c it will be w/in walking distance. We drove over and had a nice dinner at The Depot. The next morning we went to the state park near by and hiked around the top of the mtn there - that was a great way to start the day. We were driving south to Raleigh so we had to loop down & back up & around for our route, but not far. Overall, nice and clean hotel. Quiet. Nothing extraordinaire though.

Just spent our fourth visit @ Hampton Inn & Suites , Shelton Vineyards in Dobson NC
It's the perfect overnight spot for snowbirds approx 11 hours from Canadian border.
We like 3rd floor suite which allows us to extra space to put luggage on studio couch & not feel like your are in a hotel room. There's a nice area to walk around & gas up . From 5-9 om there's a nice outdoor wine bar. Indoor pool is inviting
Try to arrive for lunch or dinner at the Harvest Grill @Shelton Vineyards short car trip away & view the winerey & the vineyards.
We enjoyed succulent pork & amazing pnut butter pie accompanied by Riesling & Starbucks coffee.
This is an exceptional organization with thanks to the hospitality & Shelton family

Traveling south on Rt. 77 you come upon this large Hamton Inn. Great stop on the way south. Very friendly staff and a super clean hotel. Nice breakfast in the morning in a very comfortable lobby area. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the east side away from rt. 77. Very quiet
