Old and Dated (like me)

We were only staying one night as we worked our way down the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we checked-in we were told we had a room in the Annex. Our room and its furnishings looked very much like a '90s Holiday Inn, which is not what we thought when we booked it. But, since we were only there for one night, we decided to stay - that is, until we discovered that our room's A/C didn't work. The young lady from the front desk came to our room to verify that it wasn't working and then offered us a box fan for the night - for $320 per night, we would get a box fan (they were apparently fully booked for the night). We politely declined and found another place to stay.
Many Pleasant Surprises!

This is the first time we stayed at Meadowbrook Inn in Blowing Rock. What a gem!
The hotel is conveniently situated near Main Street. It’s about 5 minutes leisurely walk to many lovely shops and restaurants of Blowing Rock.
Upon check in, we were surprised to receive either red/white wine or big bottle of water as a welcoming gifts. We had two connecting two-queens rooms on the first floor. They were quiet, which normally is not the case for first floor hotel rooms.
During this Covid pandemic, I am most picky about hotel cleanness because getting sick would be the last thing I want for a vacation. I am very pleased to find that the rooms were pristinely prepared and totally met my high standards. Beds and pillows were comfortable. We were all well rested.
The most impressive part of this hotel comes to the STAFF. I casually mentioned to the concierge the night before that we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the complimentary breakfast, because we had to leave early for our biking reservation. And Guess what? The next morning as we checked out, there were already breakfast bags full of delicious muffins, yogurts etc. waiting for us. The staff really go way and beyond to make us feel pampered. Thank you Sterling and the morning staff (sorry I forgot your name) for being so thoughtful and didn’t want us to get hungry for our 2 hour bike rides.
We would definitely be back!
This is a very nice hotel.

We really enjoyed staying here except for two things that I'll get into later. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, and has nice furnishings and upper end fixtures in the bathroom. A nice change from budget stuff you see a lot. The breakfast area and food was very nice and appealing.
The problem was the AC unit, which is built into an interior wall, not in the window like you normally see in hotels. Our unit was very noisy, both the compressor/fan unit and a very annoying rattle also. When trying to note where the rattle was coming from, I touched both the out going air grill and then the incoming air grill. Neither one was loose. So I think that the rattle was something inside the unit. But I did notice that the suction side looked a little dirty, I was able to open the grill and look inside. Disgusting. It obviously hadn't been cleaned, nor the filter replaced in a long time. See pictures.
I ended up turing the AC off and opened the window.
Friendly but not perfect

I went here for a private car event.
The first room that we got placed in for early (previous day to the event) had glass blocks instead of a clear pane window. So you couldn’t even view the parking lot or a trashcan outside. Instead it looked down into the ballroom. Since we were the third party in our group to check in for the whole hotel I found this strange. We asked to move and we were allowed to move across the way and upstairs. This room at least had a view of the parking lot which was much better.
The room itself was adequate. There were stains in the bathroom tub and stains on the curtain. The make-up mirror light was inoperable. I asked for them to repair it but I think they were unable to. I kind of expected a more clean room than what we encountered. The bathtub itself was nice as it allowed a good soak to be had. The air conditioner in the room was so loud that it made it difficult to sleep. In fact the air conditioner did not seem to work that well. It was hard for the Inn to actually be quiet it seemed.
On our first night the room next to us apparently had a water leak. We could hear the water running all night long. I just thought it was old pipes. We found out the next morning as someone was coming out to remove the water from the carpeting and to run a fan well before 8 o’clock in the morning. This was not a wonderful thing to wake up to after a long drive to get to the Inn. That was disappointing. Then I had to deal with very noisy rooms on either side. They were several times when other guest would have very loud conversations in the hallway and you could definitely hear them. The walls were quite thin and it was easy to hear the TV next door. I did have to call in in the middle of the night for the desk clerk to call the room next to us to lower the TV.
However, the front desk staff and other staff that I encountered were very friendly and very nice and very accommodating. I was very pleased with my encounters with all staff.
The breakfast which is included in the room was so-so. It varied every other day. It could use a lot more variety.
The parking was ample.
They do take precautions against the current health situation. The pen that I used at check out was wiped down before it was reused. And when you check out your room keys are put into a bin so that they can be completely cleaned properly before they are reused.

Great find! The location was perfect, the accommodations were clean, staff was great, I have nothing but positive experiences here. I would definitely stay here again. The manager was top notch when we had a situation with the room (my fault , not theirs) and they still went above and beyond to help. My kids loved how close the playground was ( we literally went multiple times a day) and all the restaurants were walking distance. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
