Even with a slew of clues we were mostly clueless on “who done it” but had a fantastic time at the Green Park Inn! The hotel and staff were wonderful hosts for a fun weekend!! Our room was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was delicious! We loved sipping wine and chatting with other guests - trying to figure out the mystery - in the rocking chairs on the front porch!

Green Park Inn is truly a beautiful historic property. The front veranda is lined with rocking chairs, and on Sunday evening they had live music. The library doors opened out to the veranda so we sat in comfortable chairs and enjoyed the music. Friday and Saturday evenings they have a gentleman playing piano in the foyer. The rooms are comfortable, and ours had a balcony facing out across the beautiful golf course with two comfy rockers. The restaurant and tavern are absolutely top notch, so do yourself a favor and enjoy a meal there.

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Green Park Inn. We loved the restaurant (former ballroom) with its elegant chandeliers, wallpaper and pine floors. Actually ate their twice. Rooms were enormous (we had connecting rooms with the kids but probably could have fit in one) and very clean. There's also a nice walk through the history of the hotel and blowing rock in one of the rooms. We would definitely return for our next trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Room tip: First floor rooms are large and have terraces

It is important to have realistic expectations when staying here. It's an old historic inn which I think is absolutely awesome. It has been several years since it was renovated so it's not ultra modern but our stay was delightful. We had dinner there on Friday night and asked to sit outside. They accommodated us along with another group and even set up special lighting. My only complaint was that they would not let me order the pasta dish I wanted from the bar menu. I'm positive there's only one kitchen so I was surprised they could not accommodate that request. I would have expected slightly more customer service. Breakfast back on the patio on Saturday morning. The breakfast menu is limited but was good. Our room was spacious with king bed and sitting area. The view was of the roof, but that was fine because the room was quiet and we spent our extra time relaxing on the front porch in the rocking chairs. There was music inside on Friday evening and outside on Saturday evening. All the staff were nice and friendly and responsive to our requests. The inn is right on the main road which years ago wasn't so close to the front door. If we were ever to return to Blowing Rock, we would stay here again.

Room tip: If you want a quiet room, ask to stay on the back side of the hotel.

This place is billed as a historic property, and I'm sure it is. It is also shabby and overpriced. We asked ahead of time for a pet-friendly room, and the one they offered STANK!!! In the middle of the carpet was an ugly, maroon-colored mat that obviously covered a dog stain. We refused the unpleasant room and were accused by the manager of being "ugly," and I personally don't think it is ugly to be willing to pay upwards of $200 for a room and expect it to be pleasant and clean. Finally we were offered a room they said was NOT "pet-friendly," and it probably wasn't, because it smelled okay and had a nice balcony. The beds were like rocks, and I had sustained an injury at the beginning of our weekend and was in considerable pain. Once we got over our initial skirmish, the staff was kind, and were considerate when we felt we had to end our weekend early. Pros: lovely balconies. Cons: shabby, and needs a lot of work. My pet peeve is being treated like second-class citizens because we choose to travel with our small dogs who sleep in their own kennels and are far more civilized then most people. PS: don't expect to be able to charge your phone or laptop.

Room tip: The balcony rooms overlook the golf course and the view of the mountains is lovely.

We try to be accommodating and go out of our way for all of our guests, as we did for this guest, but there are always cases where nothing is ever enough. As this guest was checking in, she mentioned that she had been injured at the beginning of the weekend. Our general manager spent a significant amount of time calling local businesses to see if someone would let us borrow a wheelchair for this guest to use during her stay. Finally, after calling a personal friend, the General Manager found a wheelchair, and called the guest to let her know. At this point, the guest made it known that she wasn’t happy with her room, and our GM began speaking with her and looking for another room for her.

This guest was travelling with a pet and had reserved one of our limited pet friendly rooms with a balcony. (Please note that it is important to designate specific rooms as “pet friendly”, so we can ensure that any guests with pet allergies are placed in rooms that have not had pets in them.) As the guest mentioned, she’d had problems in the past with being treated differently for having a pet, and from remarks she made at the front desk upon check-in, she was clearly expecting this to be the case before ever entering the hotel. However, our pet friendly rooms have been chosen at random, and are no different than any other room in the hotel. Every room has throw rugs, which are simply part of the decor, not a poor and preposterous attempt at dealing with pet stains. The guest claimed that her room was “nothing like the photographs online”, but she happened to be in the exact room that had been photographed and displayed online. The guest even complained that the room was horrible because her pet might be able to squirm off the balcony!

The initial “skirmish” that the reviewer mentions is in reference to the discussion the guest had with our general manager in the lobby, during which the guest became very rude. At a point she actually told our GM to “go to hell” and also said that there would be “hell to pay” because she felt that she was being given an inferior room. While the staff were still looking for another room for the guest, and knowing that most hotels in town were sold out for the weekend (as we were) the GM walked in front of the guest toward the front door so that she could hold the door open for her when the guest shouted “you don’t need to escort me off the premises” at which point our GM turned to the guest and calmly said “ma’am, there’s no need to be ugly with me, I am simply opening the door for you, and we have all been trying to help you and to address your needs and concerns”. So, this is the reference to “ugly” that the reviewer claims. We did ultimately move some things around and locate a room for this guest, which she reported to our housekeeping staff that she was quite happy with.

PS: We’re not sure why this guest wasn’t able to charge their phone, as there are multiple electric outlets in every room. We even have “loaner” chargers at the front desk in case guests have forgotten theirs (and there is a notice on the front desk indicating this), so feel free to ask to borrow one!
