Reviewed 27 June 2014

Ridgeway Inn was a special treat after staying at bigger brand hotels which were a disappointment. The rooms are a lot more sound proof then most , very well presented and breakfasts were better then others I have experienced - thank goodness we at least has paper plates and not styrofoam ! We had a wonderful time and the beds were very comfortable.

We spent 2 nights with friends. We had a simple room, not the more attractive rooms seen on the website. Blowing Rock is a small, walkable village with picturesque homes and other buildings. Ridgeway Inn is right in very easy walking distance of everything. Our room was stuck in a dark corner, but that didn't matter. It was very comfortable. The inn has rockers on a porch where we could sit and visit, as well as swings under a pergola. They offer snacks and wine before dinnertime and a suitable breakfast in the morning. The breakfast is comparable to what many motels and inns offer, but the wine and snacks exceed expectations. We stayed on a Thursday night and a Friday night. The weekend price on Friday was almost twice the weeknight price. If you can stay on a weeknight, it is far more affordable.

There are plenty of places to stay in Blowing Rock. We just happened to choose the Ridgeway. Nice bed. Wine and cheese in the evening and enough food in the morning if you are not too hungry. Good food around town and easy walking to shops and parks. Wi-Fi worked and large tv channel selection.

The pictures do not do this little inn justice. It is just adorable. My friends and I stayed in the Wauhonhasee Suite, and it was very spacious with a living area, a small kitchen, a separate bedroom, and a HUGE private deck. The whole suite is decorated beautifully and we just loved having our own private deck to hang out on. You can walk to all the shops and most of the restaurants in downtown Blowing Rock. We all highly recommend this place.

We stayed at this motel last Thanksgiving. This is an older property that is well maintained. It is very close to the shops in Blowing Rock - definitely within walking distance.

The motel has exterior doors and is definitely not upscale, but if you want a clean comfortable room for a reasonable price this fits the bill.

The woman at the front desk was super helpful in suggesting nice hikes. Room was really cute with two queen beds and pine panel ceilings. Big TV and nice bathroom. The continental breakfast was tasty, too. I liked being so close to the center of town. I thought the place had lots of charm and character.

Room Tip: We had 101 on the road and it was quiet, believe it or not.
