Meadowbrook Inn
Ranked #7 of 16 Hotels in Blowing Rock
Reviewed 23 July 2017

The Meadowbrook is conveniently located walking distance to downtown Blowing Rock and easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and nearby activities. The room was clean and comfortable. It was great to have a pool for the kids. The breakfast buffet had multiple options--hot and cold. The hotel has some age on it, but they do the best they can with the structures given. If you are looking for on-site activities, then this is not for you. You come to Blowing Rock to get out of the hotel and DO THINGS, not to be entertained in a hotel. Keep that in mind when you travel. Get out and DO SOMETHING. Sleep here, eat breakfast here, cool down in the pool here, and then get out and do something else.
The only negative was that there is one front desk person and when she is on the phone, be prepared to stand there and wait and wait and wait while someone makes a reservation the archaic way and asks a million questions that would easily be answered if they would just use the website. It would be nice to have more than one person at the desk so the tired folks who drove for hours to get there did not have to stand and wait out those calls. ugh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from stairwell doors

Have stayed here several times and am glad to read it will be updated. Staff was helpful but couldn't help us with the spotty internet. Ac never completely cooled off the room-the heat off the sun porch probably didn't help and the top bed blanket had a quarter size hole. This place is showing its age and updating is none too soon. The breakfast has holiday inn beat and the location is great but the annex rooms are overpriced for now.

My mother, my sister and I stayed here for a girls getaway. Between the three of us we travel extensively throughout the year so we've stayed at a lot of hotels. This one fell short of our expectations. First, the pros: our room was very clean. The staff is friendly. The free breakfast was one of the better breakfasts we've ever had at a hotel ( which is why I gave three stars instead of two). The cons: although the bed itself was comfortable, the pillows were horrible. I'm not a "pillow snob" therefore I don't travel with my pillow. I wished I had. There was no microwave or refrigerator in our room therefore we couldn't bring back leftovers ( which wouldn't have been a big deal had we not paid so much for the room). The t.v had a fuzzy picture and limited channels. There was no clock in the room which irritated my elderly mother whom is not accustomed to checking a phone for the time. She even asked front desk for a clock. They assured her they would get one to her. They never did. There was not one picture on the walls in our room nor a mirror in the room. Three women trying to get ready to go out and sharing a tiny bathroom mirror was not very pleasurable. We were assured at the time of reserving our room that there were numerous places to smoke outside (my sister and I are smokers... please don't judge) They failed to mention that there was only one ashtray on the property therefore there were cigarette butts on the ground by the front entrance and on the terrace. It's a simple solution people! Bottom line, you'll get a better value for your money elsewhere.

The inn was such a relaxing stay for my sister, 2 grandsons, and myself. We had the indoor pool to ourselves! The breakfast was included and the boys loved getting their own food. The room had 2 Q beds and was very spacious!

This is the 3rd time staying here and I will definitely go back.
