“The rooms smell musty”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

There is NO customer service that this hotel. We made reservations to stay at this hotel and received a confirmation number. Once we arrived at the hotel and had visited the hotel room, the innkeeper informed us that he would not honor our confirmation. After trying to reason with him and even agreeing to pay more than the reservation amount, he asked us to leave. We stayed at another hotel with better ammenities for the same money.

I was reluctant to book an extended stay anywhere in Blowing Rock without seeing my choices in person. After reading several reviews, I chose to stay a night at the Boxwood Lodge. It's a good choice. We had a king suite room. Room was very clean and smelled fresh. Bed and furniture all in great shape. Bed was very comfortable. This was a nice departure from the chain hotels. I would certainly stay again next visit. My wife thought the room was "cozy" and "quaint". Location is good for shops in Blowing Rock and surrounding area. I'm pretty picky when it comes to lodging. This was a good choice.

I just had a wonderful stay at the Boxwood Lodge. Phillip and Emma went out of their way to ensure that our group of 25 had the accommodations we needed to enjoy our activities. Our group will be returning. Great value for the money.

Loved the long porches with rocking chairs. Perfect for rocking, socializing & watching the world go by. Walked to everything in downtown Blowing Rock.

In addition, Phillip and Emma went waaaay beyond the call of duty to help me with a few personal predicaments that I managed to get myself into during my stay. Due to their hospitality, they transformed what could have been a difficult few days for me into a weekend of marvelous adventures.

Oh, and their free internet connection works flawlessly and is wickedly fast.

We stayed in the cabin on the premises for the weekend. In packing our things the morning of our departure I forgot to look in the tiny closet between the bathroom and kitchen. I had hung our 3 rain coats and placed a very expensive JVC camcorder in a red tamrac bag on the shelf just above the jackets and right beside the spare sheets. We left without ever looking in the closet. the next morning we contacted the innkeeper who said housekeeping found the 3 rain jackets but did not admit to finding the camcorder??? this is simply not possible in a tiny 18 inch closet right beside the sheets that would be needed to remake the room. We were just heart sick to think that someone would take our camcorder. The Innkeeper initially seemed concerned but upon further conversation with him and suggesting that his housekeepers were dishonest he became rude and hung the phone up on me. A very expensive trip for us. We will never return to Boxwood or recommend it to others.

A friend and I stayed at the Boxwood Lodge on the
weekend of 5-9-08. The experience was great..really great.
Phil and his wife were very helpful in every way.
The room was #202 a double queen suite. Everything
was clean, the layout was very warm and inviting. The
lodge is freshly painted and well maintained. I called the
front desk to report a broken lamp, Phil was there in five
min to take care of it. I plan to stay in the cabin suite they
offer next time.

We stayed at Boxwood Lodge for a long weekend getaway, and were extremely pleased with our stay. We stayed in the king suites that are located in the main building of the property-Room 111 (Room 112 is identical). It appeared to be recently decorated -I found that it had been about 3-4 years since it was, but it was SPOTLESS. The main room was spacious, with a king bed (with a brand new matress), two reclining chairs, TV and dresser. There is a small balcony that you can go out onto that overlooks the other main bulding of the property-not large enough for a chair though. The bathroom was spotless as well, with a very large double sink and counter, and very spacious jacuzzi tub/shower with attractive ceramic tile. The room was attended to everyday by the staff. The owners were very congenial and pleasant to talk with. They provide a modest breakfast each morning of coffee, orange juice, and pastries.

We would highly recommend the king suites as a place to stay at this property, and we intend to return there next year.
