I found this hotel to be a great stop for my trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The front desk staff were friendly and the couple who were checking in ahead of me were repeat customers, which is always a good sign. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The king bed was very comfortable after a long day of driving and walking. It was also at a great price, partially due to it being offseason, but even the peak season prices seemed to be very reasonable.
There were a couple of minor things that kept this rating as Very Good instead of Excellent. One would be that it was on a busy road and it was a bit of a walk to the Main Street shops and restaurants of Blowing Rock. The next morning a big storm was moving through the area that kept me from walking to a place that serves breakfast. I do not mind a continental breakfast, as it is nice to have it included with the price of the room, but they did not have much that I enjoyed other than good coffee. However, for dinner, there were several restaurants nearby, including one that was next door to the hotel.
If I return, I may look at one of their other properties that were closer to the Main Street shops and restaurants. However, I would not hesitate at booking a room at this hotel again, as all of the positives outweighed those minor negatives and it was nice to stay away from one of the big chains that all seem to be focused on volume over individual service.
