are there restaurants within walking distance of the Hotel Floyd? Possibly somewhere to enjoy an adult beverage as well?

Visit Floyd, especially on Friday night. Fifteen minutes from BRP.
Plenty of dining and entertainment options within walking distance.
Nice place. Great riding nearby. For the mile marker area you suggest I don't think you'll do better.

Other options are a bit less appealing - Tuggles Gap Motel and Restaurant, basic but serviceable.

Woodberry Inn , Meadows of Dan is right off the parkway at about milepost 175. Lodging, with a restaurant and bar on premises. Stayed there for a couple of nights last September, I would recommend it.
