Convenient and reasonably priced for families visiting APP State students, if a group of friends is headed to the ski mountains, or just a highway pit stop! The breakfast in the morning is included in your stay its a continental and hot bar combo which is great for on-the-go or there's a comfortable dining area to relax with the local... More

Based on previous reviews, I got what I expected. This is a very average property and the only major chain hotel in BR. The heating units are loud and cycle on and off all night. The water pressure is completely random. The beds are very basic and not satisfying. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a buffet of... More

The room was fine as far as cleanliness. However, water pressure was bad and HOT water was scarce. Nothing like taking a shower and it suddenly becoming COLD! AC/Heater was very noisy and the beds were lumpy and uncomfortable. We will find somewhere else to stay next time.

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 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
