TIP. Major road construction in the area. Normal entrance is blocked. Watch for small 2x2 sign about a tenth of a mile north of the hotel. GPS directions will be a bit off. Also, no lighting in the parking lot near the main road. Back of hotel has good lighting and is now the temporary main entrance. So to confirm... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night during a short vacation driving Americas highway. The road in front of the hotel is under construction. There is heavy traffic at times. There is a small sign that has the holiday inn name on it (all businesses have the small signs). There is a large pot hole in the middle... More

The hotel was fine, casual and convenient. I give them a 'thumbs up' for the value, it was fine. I enjoyed the hot breakfasts every morning, there was a wide selection of options. There is construction going on in front of the hotel but that really wasn't a problem.

We enjoyed our stay because the beds and pillows were very comfortable. Each bed had firm and soft pillow options. The comforter was clean. You could tell it was washed every time. The kids liked the pool. We loved having a small fridge and microwave for our leftover food from restaurants.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel when visiting Appalachian State. The hotel is relatively new, and is located about 20 minutes from campus. The room we had this trip was on the lowest floor, grade entrance on the back of the building to the parking lot. Two comments about this trip and this stay. When... More

Nice hotel and a clean, quiet, restful stay. Nice room and comfy bed and pillows. Good breakfast but get there early before the little kids and families get up! Front desk staff is GREAT! We'll be back!

The rooms were as clean as an inexpensive hotel should be. Service was great. They had motorcycle specific parking out front of the main entrance. The facilities are a little dated, but who cares. All of the outlets, TV, etc. worked as they should.

Stayed for 2 nights here. Room was clean, bathroom was smaller than some other HIE's I have been too. Had to request a blanket for the end of the bed; I was told they are not normally provided because guests are stealing them?! One problem was that all 5 of the rear parking lot lights were out, after 9 pm.... More

Smoke-free hotel......spacious rooms.......great free breakfast......good rate for a resort. Wifi was very slow and a/c unit was noisy. Entrance will be easier with completion of US 321 highway. Will stay there again.
