Have stayed in ,many Holiday Inn Express locations over the years in different cities. The one in Blowing Rock, NC did not live up to our expectations. In short, the bed was soft and uncomfortable and the noisy heating unit blower would turn on and off every 5 minutes. Needless to say, sleeping was difficult.

The room was clean although the fridge was very noisy. I'm not sure the front desk staff could speak, no customer service or interaction on check-in or check-out. Hot and cold continental breakfast was good. Trouble sleeping as the temperature in our room fluctuated badly. Pool paint is coming off and needs some TLC.

We made on reservations on line, no problems. The room was just like we asked, extra pillows with 2 queen beds. Open =, lots of room . Seperate shower and bath, which was clean, and had extra towels. The staff was friendly and gave good directions to locals places of interest. We had a good nights sleep. We had a... More

We just wanted a place to rest our heads for the night after a long day of driving and sightseeing so this hotel worked well for us. If you are looking for a room with a view this is not really the hotel you are looking for. But we knew that already. The room was very clean, the staff was... More

Although this hotel is not extravagant or perfect, my boyfriend and I enjoy staying at the HI when we visit Blowing Rock. The rooms are always clean, and the beds are extremely comfortable. The breakfast has plenty to offer, which is fantastic for those who are somewhat picky about hotel breakfasts. I always know if I'm unhappy with something being... More

We stayed with friends at this hotel for 2 nights to explore the blue ridge parkway. The hotel is clean and well maintained and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is okay but the breakfast room is small and can be very busy. We unfortunately had rooms to the front side which were very noisy.

My husband and I went to Blowing Rock to see the fall colors in mid October. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions. Our room was clean and quiet.
