This is a basic hotel, convenient to downtown Bowing Rock and to Boone. It has an indoor pool and the standard breakfast buffet. Rooms don't have much of a view, but we didn't get road noise so can't complain.

The hotel was nice, friendly staff, breakfast buffet as advertised and overall clean. Our only complaint is related to the Fitness Facility. This is always one of our main criteria when making a hotel choice and the website advertised (with picture) a nice fitness facility with a weight machine and several pieces of cardio. The actual facility had no weight... More

I was scheduled to take an exam at App. State in February, so I booked two days at the Holiday Inn Express. Unfortunately, Snowmageddon arrived that week, which made it impossible to travel. When I called to cancel my rooms, the first employee I spoke with explained that I would possibly be penalized for cancellation and lose the money put... More

The hotel staff at reception was polite. The hotel was convenient to my business requirements. The price was very good. The TV and cable options were good. The heater in the room was good. The breakfast was mediocre but typical of an average HIE. There is an Outback Steakhouse within walking distance. Now for the bad... There was a brown... More

My family stayed for a quick ski weekend. Very quiet & comfortable. The staff (everyone): front desk, housekeeping & food service were extremely friendly. The breakfast was yummy and bountiful as the staff worked tirelessly to replenish the food for many people. We will definitely stay here again.

Can't go wrong with 2 Queen size beds and a full breakfast in the morning when travelling with the family. Great little hotel. Nice staff, clean premises.

We stayed here on a New Years trip to the mountains. The room was very clean and well appointed. Bedding was comfy and warm. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The indoor pool was warm and clean. The breakfast selection was decent and well stocked. Overall I highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
