My husband and I had a great one night stay experience. We brought our now 3 year old son to Blowing Rock to celebrate his birthday. Everything went according to plan and all of our expectations were met. The best part about our stay was the location. We took our son to Tweetsie Railroad Park which was literally right down the road from the hotel. There was also a lot of restaurants and stores close by. Another good thing about our stay was the location of our room. I was so nervous about how our toddler would respond to staying at a hotel as this was his first time. He did fine, but let's just say I'm glad that our room was located on the first floor and I believe we were among other families with children too. Not sure if this was planned by the staff or not, but it definitely worked for us! All overall everything was great including the breakfast. Prior to selecting this hotel I read a lot of other reviews about how good the breakfast was. They were all right. It wasn't perfect, but better than most hotels (regarding the selection of food). We will definitely be staying here again!
