The Blowing Rock Inn is a very nice place to stay. Very Clean and the sheets were changed! A nights stay costs slightly less than similar inns in Blowing Rock. Our room had updated bath and new paint. The room is small, but expected when staying at this type of inn from the 50's. Great location, friendly innkeepers, comfortable bed, flat screen TV and wifi too. We're glad we disregarded the review from June 2011.

We appreciate that these guest choose to stay with us and enjoyed their stay! I will pass the comment of "very clean" onto my housekeepers that have been on the property for 30 years, who do a wonderful job for us. As mentioned our rooms are comparable in size for the era of our building but we do strive to put as many updated and personal touches as possible in the rooms. We hope we have added to our list of established guest and look forward to their return in the near future.

It is now 430 in the morning and I am sitting on the couch. The bed is particularly uncomfortable, and after several hours of tossing, realized that the sheets have stains and hair from prior guests.
The location is ideal and free wifi.

We truly take it to heart when our guest have an unpleasant experience while staying with us. When unsatisfactory conditions are brought to our attention we do everything in our means to correct the situation. Unfortunately to the best of our knowledge we were never given that opportunity in this given situation. However, our normal policies would have been in affect - all bed linens are changed between guest, all mattress in every unit has been replaced in the last 6 years and in the past 10 years of ownership we have maintained a 96.5% or higher yearly Health Inspection score.

Bathrooms appeared to be renovated fairly recently.
Rooms a little smaller than expected.
Very clean and all in very good condition.
TV a bit dated.
Very friendly service and we got a good rate.

We are happy that our guest seemed to be satisfied overall. Our bathrooms were completely renovated in 2009. As for the size of our rooms they are comparable for the era of our building. We do have units with older model televisions in them but we are in the process of replacing them with flat screen models. At this time we are about half way through the units in this process. We would like to say thank you for the comment of "friendly service" as my husband and I enjoy our time with our guest.

We stayed at this inn over the Thanksgiving weekend. The room was small. The door didn't latch very well - we had to push it to make sure it was closed completely. When it was, you could see daylight around it. Apparently the doors to some of the adjacent rooms didn't close properly either as we heard them slam ALL weekend. The walls are thin and we could hear the people in the next room talking and water running in their shower. I noticed hairs on the blanket on our bed. At $109.99 per night I would expect more from a room. We were in walking distance to most everything that we wanted to see so that was a plus. But overall I was not impressed.

The inn has clearly been renovated over time. Room was ok. However, the bathrooms looked very clean and very very new. Almost as if we were the first guests since it's renovation. The bedding seemed to be a bit older however carpets seemed somewhat new as well. TV and furniture were dated but working fine. We went with our children. The location was perfect to walk to the park or restaurants on Main Street. A big negative was the next door screen front doors were very very squeaky and loud and woke us all up fairly early in the morning (around 7...when our children were actually sleeping in!!).

Unfortunately, we did not find the inn keepers to be particulary friendly. They weren't rude but didn't seem to make an effort to say anything more than what needed to be said about checking in or out or whatever question we had. This seemed a bit strange for folks who are in an industry where customer service can increase the quality of stay.

This is a very cute place. We enjoyed our visit. Our only complaint is we ran out of hot water very quickly both days we were there. No even enought for 2 full showers. Other than that we loved and would go back. Location was perfect and walking distance to everything.
