Parking lot had quite few potholes and I booked a room with a king and was given two queens. They didn’t/couldn’t do anything to rectify this. All in all it was good stay and breakfast was great and facilities was clean.

I don't know if there was anything unique about the property, but the gentleman that checked us in was extremely nice and very sociable. That means a lot. The hotel was clean, etc. No complaints whatsoever.

Hotel was very nice and convenient to downtown blowing rock. Very disappointed that the hotel did not have an indoor pool. The website lists an indoor pool as an amenity. This was the main reason we wanted to stay there to help entertain our kids.

The only issue we had was that we arrived late and had to park in the rear parking lot, which was fine, but it was very, very dark and unsettling to bring our bags in due to the darkness. Upon further inspection there were 4 light poles for that lot, but apparently none were operational. To make it worse, the lights for the path to the entrance were motion-detection so that we had to get very close to the building before there was any light at all. Other than this issue the hotel was great and met our needs well. I would recommend that management take a look at those lights for saftey and security reasons.
