I visited Blowing Rock this past weekend in an effort to escape the big city heat of Charlotte. When booking online, I noticed surprisingly quite a few of the quaint; family owned Blowing Rock establishments were mostly booked. At least, if you were looking for a king bed they were booked. I noticed the Holiday Inn was decently ranked and... More

I don't need to stay at the most expensive hotels but I will shell out the extra dough if it's the only place where the cleanliness reviews are above 4 stars. Finding a place that is in the $60 range, is clean, and the bed is comfortable is an AMAZING find in my book. This place has clean sheets and... More

I am a Platinum Member of Holiday Inn and use this brand for all stays due to the reward points.

The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful, but that is the best of it. Free breakfast is a typical free breakfast. Room was dated, toilet paper holder was loose, tv remote didn't work, couch had cigarette burns, furniture was spotted, lamp switch was broken...the place needs an overhaul!

This hotel was a great place for us to stay on our recent vacation to North Carolina August 5th. The hotel is convenient to The Blowing Rock, the beautiful downtown area of Blowing Rock and to attractions in Boone and Linville. The value of the hotel includes a clean well decorated room with up to date furnishings and the conveniences... More

This hotel had some pluses and minuses, but was okay for a medium cost overnight stay. Check-in was quick even if not warm and friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious and the fitness center was fine. The downside was the crowded and perhaps limited breakfast - but it was "free", so it is hard to say it was not... More

Lobby area seemed unkempt and appeared to need a good cleaning. Not what we were hoping for upon arrival. Asked for quiet room. Location on backside was fine but one fellow patron was lacking good manners and tried to impress whomever might listen with their LOUD AND UNTALENTED singing in the hallway each time (3) he visited the ice machine....

We booked a room here last minute for a quick weekend getaway. Even though Hotel was full, it was quiet, clean and well-kept. Indoor Pool made my daughter happy. Everyone was helpful and we couldn't have been more pleased. Excellent value for our stay.
