Decide to visit Blowing Rock again for the second time this month. Our first stay at the Holiday Inn Express was fantastic. Our return stay was so so. Our room was not prepared to meet the requested standards. We need a room that is free of sprays that are used to freshen the room. This was not done. The allergies... More

Comparable to most Hampton Inns, except slightly better breakfast, and less expensive: Up to date room, clean, with microwave, mini-frig, etc. Also, we liked finding a washable, light weight comforter and bedspread. Only downside was mild musty order when entering room because they don't leave AC units on. This quickly dissipated when AC was turned on. This value will draw... More

Pretty good place for the money. The front desk was efficient and friendly. Very nice breakfast, but a little crowded. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice. The bathroom was also clean. My family may stay here again the next time we're in the area.

This was fine for us as we were only there for one night. It is close to downtown either a short drive or if you like waking you could do that. Blowing rock is quaint town and lots of little shops and some very good restuarants

Staff was really friendly, motorcycling parking under the canopy in view of the front desk. If you are coming off the BRP 321 is the direct route but if you are on your motorcycle and like Switchbacks and curves take 221 Rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. Choices of soft and firm pillows

We stayed here on a visit to Blowing Rock. It is in a great location to attractions. However, there is construction in the area. The gym area is small but does offer 2 treadmills, an elliptical machine, and a free weights area. The hotel seems to be a bit old but the staff is friendly and the selection for the... More

We stayed here as I had enough free points for a free stay. We also liked the free breakfast option (which was very expansive) and the pool (indoor but small square). It is a bit dated, but clean and staff was friendly. I think the price on the website without points seemed reasonable after stamping especially for high season (July).

We have stayed here several times. A really nice hotel and ideal location for the area if staying with a family. The only thing I will say is that the Gym is looking very outdated and the pool is a bit tatty round the edges. However, that shouldn't take away from it being a lovely hotel and a very nice... More

We thought that this motel had a lot of perks. It was close to town and attractions. The breakfast that was included was pretty good. Like most kids, our daughter loved the pool. The view from our room on the third floor included some mountains and rolling hills. Overall, it was fairly quiet and we all slept well. Things here... More

Front desk staff was very friendly and asked us if we had AAA or any other opportunities for discounts when we checked in. The room, however was stuffy and damp feeling. The air conditioner kept turning off by itself if we weren't constantly moving around in the room, so we would come back to a warm and damp room and... More
