Enjoyed 3 nights here recently with family. Hotel was clean and safe. Main issue we experienced was hotel didn't measure well and counter extends well over toilet seat so toilet seat kept falling on my potty training 3-year old...asked for kid to be removed during our stay but came back to a small piece of duck tape that didn't stay on. All in all we'd likely stay again if we travel in area.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family

Although the bed was very comfortable, the remainder of the room I stayed in needed remodeling and the lobby areas did not smell fresh....carpeting old. Breakfast was typical. Very pricey for what you get. Located on a busy highway, but convenient to get to Blowing Rock, which was beautiful.

Stayed: July 2017

Great location and clean. The pool was very clean. The environment around the pool was shabby and needs to be updated. The breakfast was good and plentiful. We liked the biscuits and gravy. The room was nice.

We just wanted a reasonable and comfortable place to stay in Blowing Rock, no big frills, and this fit the bill for us. The front desk was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed our brief stay there. Breakfast was good, nothing especially remarkable as breakfasts go, but good.

This is a well maintained and clean hotel. The front desk employees were very friendly and helpful especially Harris. I had an issue with the previously quoted (months ago) rate and what was being charged at check-in. Harris immediately saw what the problem was and took care of it. That previously quoted rate was correct. My wife and I had a nice large room on the third floor. Both the room and bathroom were clean and in good order. The bathroom sink counter was rather small but adequate. The bed was comfortable and gave us a good night's sleep. Along with the expected amenities we had a table and two chairs. We enjoyed their express breakfast which had the typical breakfast hot and cold foods and of course those delicious cinnamon rolls. The breakfast area was adequate but I can see it getting crowded. The hotel is located on US 321 bypass. The bypass has a median strip so that anytime you exit the hotel parking and want to go north you must first go a short distance south and then do a U-turn to go north. This really wasn't a problem as traffic wasn't too heavy at least when we were there.

If you are planning on visiting Grandfather Mountain be sure to ask the front desk staff about the discount tickets they provide. It is $3.00 less than paying at the entrance gate at Grandfather Mountain. They will even put the price of the ticket on your hotel bill if you wish.

Room Tip: Our room on third floor back was quite. Not much of a view but that seemed to be true of most rooms.
