Certainly NOT a 3 plus star hotel or a boutique hotel as advertised on Hotwire!!! Beware… very dated, small and a marginal 2 star at best!!! Would advise booking something different if looking for 3 star or more.

Had I gone to this inn way back in the sixties, it would have been a luxurious stay. Now it just seems shabby, worn, and desperately in need of new furnishings and window coverings. We stayed in the Lavender Twilight Cottage which was supposedly the best. The king bed was comfortable, the television reception was okay, the staff were efficient, the cottage was clean enough. It just needs a big overhaul! Anyone with mobility impairment be advised that the shower is in a deep jetted tub. There is a grab bar, but just be advised! The location was very good.

We were the only guests staying here or we were the only car in the parking lot and they first assigned us to an upstairs room. We asked to be moved to the ground floor if possible. We were given a dark corner room with no outside light. The room is very basic. No frills. The ceiling fan only works if the hall light is on. When we came back from dinner, the internet wasn’t working and there is no one at the front desk and no one who answers calls. The king bed is cushy and we both rolled to the middle. Not sure what is going on at the inn but the town is lovely.

I just reported this hotel to the Better Business Bureau. Upon checking I immediately called because the room smells like mold and mildew. I didn’t get a call back until the next morning and I explained our situation. I also mentioned that the bathrooms were dirty. After returning home the bottoms of my families feet all stunk of mildew on their socks from walking on the carpet. Thai was room 118 at the Ridgeway inn. So I called the hotel back and asked for the manager to get a refund. He said no and hung up on me. Do not stay here.

The hospitality was very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived later at night and the staff made it very easy to get our keys and instructions. Very clean rooms with updated and clean bathrooms. Bedding was comfortable and pretty. The mattress and pillows were a bit uncomfortable. The grounds were nicely landscaped. It is situated for a very short walk to the restaurants and downtown.

We enjoyed our stay here. The welcome was warm and friendly with advice on where to go, places to see and restaurants to visit. The room was fine. The bed comfortable. This is an old motel type property that has been updated so the bathroom is still small like it was when built. These in-town accommodations are "mom and pop" establishments , no commercialized accommodations in the town itself . Blowing Rock is such a quaint town and this motel is conveniently located to the downtown area. The only complaint I had was that the tub was not clean, everything else was acceptable. Coffee maker in the room...no breakfast but if you need more coffee all you had to do was ask.

Horrible place!! Swayed bed which caused us to roll into middle, so no comfort at all!! An air conditioner that squeals a constant high pitched whistle, so couldn't sleep all night. Plus a television that freezes up, shower that doesn't drain properly, no blankets, and a toilet that takes 3 tries to flush.

We picked this hotel because my wife needed wifi for an all day zoom. We told them that when we made the reservation. It didn’t work. Nor did the tv! When’s the last time you went to a hotel and the tv didn’t work? What about zero response from the manager after two email attempts? The young front desk attendant game me her email. I told her in my email I would write this horrifyingly bad review if she didn’t respond in 3 days. I waited two weeks. Crickets… This place makes the Motel 6 look like the Ritz Carlton. ……would you pay $250 a night for no tv, no wifi, no parking, and a very worn down hotel? Of course not. If I was the owner of this asset I would clean house with current management and invest some money in the absolute minimum requirements of a hotel in 2021…..TV and wifi

Upon arrival, noticed carpet had not been vacuumed. Late on first night when pulling comforter down, sheets appeared wrinkled and not clean. Then, realized there was sand or crumbs in the bed. They did change the next morning upon request and vacuumed. It was obvious that the room had not been cleaned well at all. A/C was not working properly, 1 bar of soap, no kleenex and they do not refresh your towels, or other amenities regardless of how many nights you are there such as coffee, shampoo, towels, etc. Furniture was dusty. They offer NO snacks for breakfast or evening although that is not my issue. I have stayed here for years but will not be back. I have contacted them 3 days straight asking to speak to mgmt but have yet to receive a call. They are pathetic. This is unfortunate.
