The thermostat and temperature system was confusing to figure out 1st. Once we figured it out, it took a very long time for the actual temperature to adjust.

The property is a great location to walk around downtown Blowing Rock. The city is doing a sewer renovation on Sunset Dr so the road is torn up and full of gravel and dust. I believe because of this reno we had an issue with our sink backing up, I went and told the front desk, they took note of the issue for maintenance to go in after we left and gave me a discount on the room for our inconvenience. It was truly appreciated. I will return to that hotel when I go back to the area.

Overpriced

Pros: location
Hotel room was comfortable, but mediocre at best. For nearly $200 a night it felt like price gauging. Rooms were stuffy to the point it was hard to breathe and have not been updated in a while. The free breakfast left much to be desired. When we asked for the wi-fi password, front desk were rude and stated they had already given it to us at check in. Would not return.

Cons: add employee to do breakfast setup. replace toilet
Location: good location three blocks from shops and restaurants.

Nice inn in Blowing Rock nc

It was a very nice place to stay. We had a problem one morning, our toilet ran over in the night, but they moved us to another room. But we checked out at 11, really didn't get to enjoy our morning. But it was very relaxing, the night before.
