The history of this Inn is remarkable. The staff was awesome. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The common areas were very nice. The price was higher than I normally pay, but it was peak week for color.

We came to the hotel for a weekend getaway just as the weather was turning cold and the leaves were turning beautiful colors. We were especially grateful the hotel allowed us to bring along our dog. The free wi-fi was also appreciated. We wanted to experience a unique, historical locale, but didn't count on the noise of the steam radiators at night. The staff were very swift and pleasant in relocating us to a room with modern heating - it's well worth the upgrade! The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. Although more old than charming, it met all our needs and was good value compared to the cost of other hotels in the area. Our favorite and most memorable part of our stay was the food in the hotel's restaurant. The amazing chef creates unique dishes with beautiful presentation and wonderful flavors.

Room Tip: "Supreme" rooms facing the golf course and with modern heaters are quieter inside and out.

The hotel has definetely a historical feeling when you walk through its corridor. The service is good but nothing outstanding. It is very close to the city which is what we were looking for. We only spent two nights there and mainly to sleep, so can not comment on other services. The price per night wasn't cheap but that was a very busy weekend for the region and we were luck to find a last minute vacancy in Green Park.

We recently stayed at the Green Park Inn wanting to see the Fall colors. Other reviewers are correct in that it is right on the main highway, which is currently being widened. The hotel is very charming from the approach to it and the lobby sets the stage for a trip back in time.

The hotel was built in 1882 and had such visitors as Annie Oakley, Jimmy Stewart, Herbert Hoover and more.

We had a room on the first floor overlooking the rear yard. The room itself was good sized and had a nice hardwood floor with an area rug and a flat screen tv.
The bathroom was very dated though with fixtures likely left from a 1977 renovation at the hotel. The lighting was poor with only a single fixture vanity light to illuminate the room.

However if you want to experience a bit of history, it's a minor inconvenience. The staff was very friendly and the complementary full breakfasts were wonderful!

We attended a wedding here and loved the ball room and grounds. The antique bird cages hanging from the ceiling and the drinks and service was excellent. Over 100 guests all loved the place was in great shape. We would love to stay here again.

This inn is over 110 years old and has a certain charm for those who enjoy staying in historic, Victorian type hotels. Although the inn was renovated a few years ago, you cannot help but notice the sprinkler pipes hanging down from the hallway ceilings and in the older rooms. Old creaky wood floors, no heat in the cold corridors and the fact that the hotel has seen much better times in the past could discourage some tourists. However, the best feature of the hotel was its friendly and accommodating staff. For example, the first room that we were given overlooked the ugly rooftop of one of the hotel buildings but the front desk went out of its way to find us another room that not only overlooked a golf course but also that was larger and more modern.

We dined at the hotel on the night that we arrived. The food was good but not great, but again, the service was good. Unfortunately, the same could not be said of breakfast the next morning. Breakfast service was terribly confused and lacking. We had to ask several times for proper place settings including basics like forks and spoons - as did guests at two neighboring tables. My order for fried eggs "over easy" was met by eggs hard cooked.

Finding a good, reasonably priced room in Blowing Rock at fall color season is difficult to do. For a AAA rate of $143.10, including breakfast, I am not sorry that we stayed at the Green Park Inn. However, it will not be ranked among my favorite places to stay.

Room Tip: I strongly recommend that when making a reservation you specify that you want one of the more modern...

We stayed here in September 2012 for ASU's Parent Weekend as all rooms in Boone were booked. It turned out to be a pleasant alternative and only 8 miles from Boone, Blowing Rock is a great little town with lots of shops and restaurants but you have to drive to get there from the inn. The inn is in the process of renovating their rooms thus we were the only ones on the third floor. The elevator took forever to get us to the third floor and when the doors opened -- it was totally dark (spooky)! Although that problem was remedied, the elevator remained "quirky" and ultimately a pain! The bar was great. All the personnel was helpful and prompt. the room was clean and well appointed. The breakfast was average, but made the cost of the room reasonable. Overall I would definitely consider staying again, but on a lower floor and away from the road which is noisy. Keep in mind there are no mountain views from this hotel!!

Room Tip: I wouldn't pick a room on the third floor due to the elevator which is randomly uncooperative...
