We reserved a room in June of this year for our annual trip in October. While making the reservation for this October we double checked to make sure our cats were allowed to stay. (as they were allowed the previous year) Hillwinds Inn staff on the phone assured us that our cats could stay as they were allowed the previous year. THE DAY BEFORE OUR TRIP IN OCTOBER, we receive a phone call from Hillwinds confirming that we are coming. Of course we said yes were are coming and bringing along our 2 cats. (declawed) Hillwinds staff now tells us that we CANNOT BRING OUR CATS AS THEY PREVIOUSLY SAID WE COULD! WE WERE LIED TO AND NOW LEFT TO FIND A HOTEL DURING "PEAK FALL SEASON". I will no longer trust Hillwinds and those folks ever again!! By the way Hillwinds, BAD NEWS TRAVELS VERY FAST and I WILL DO MY VERY BEST TO TELL EVERYONE I CAN OF YOUR POOR MANAGEMENT PRACTICES! NEVER AGAIN!!!!

There are a lot of the choices for accommodations in Blowing Rock, and while Hillwinds will do in a pinch, I'll be looking for another choice in the future. This is a motel room, trying to pass itself off as an Inn, but it's just an updated motel room...but not even a good update. There was mold in the shower, the mattress was soft, and the pillows weren't great either. Overall the place was clean, but at $280.00 a night you'd do much better at the Holiday Inn Express.

I was booked for a room for my family on 9/4 and confirmed on the phone on 9/3. We arrived on 9/4 at 3pm and they had canceled my room because the card had not gone through. They claimed that they had called me and texted but I had neither a call nor text on my phone. They were completely booked and could not offer us another room. So my family did not have a room AND now they have charged me for the full cost of the room and are claiming that I didn't follow their cancellation policy. Obviously we didn't cancel if we showed up with my family for the room. We are disputing the charges with our credit card now.

This Inn (really a motel) was better then expected. Although it seemed a bit dated, it had comfortable beds/comforter, fridge with freezer, microwave, table with 2 chairs to eat at, 2 rocking chairs out front of each room, friendly staff who were helpful, next door to the Famous Toastery which offered breakfast, very convenient to town. Cons: Internet was slow and the AC unit in the window didn't really cool the room. But then again you are in the mountains on vacation so how much internet and AC do you need. Overall a decent place to stay for 2 nights

The bad: Room was really hot even though thermostat was set in the 50s and we couldn’t control the temp apparently (then freezing by the time we woke up). WiFi didn’t really work at all and you don’t really have cell service. We called at 11:00 asking about early check in and they said no problem and that we were “third on the early check in list!”. But then we had to sit in the parking lot for hours with no check in until 4:00. They said check in can be at late as 5:00 even though check in time says 3:00. Really wish they would be transparent upfront so we wouldn’t have wasted literally hours of our time in the area waiting to check in with our dogs in the car. They did give us a 1 hour late check out though and were super nice throughout everything! The good: Rooms are pretty decent with comfortable beds, especially for the price. Clean rooms. Good location (walking distance to everything; no views). Pet friendly.
