We had a great time, pool is nice and heated, rooms are exceptional, staff is very friendly, the continental breakfast was... More

This hotel is conveniently located on a main road convenient to anything you'd like to do in Blowing Rock and nearby Boone. There are 3-4 restaurants within walking distance & the little main street area of Blowing Rock is less than 5 minutes to drive. The rooms are clean & have both refrigeraters and microwaves. We don't like the room... More

Check in on a Sunday. Check in was great. Lady at the front desk was very nice and welcoming. Went to our room and it was nice and clean. We had the king size bed and pull out couch. We also requested a portable crib, which was clean with a fitted sheet and small baby blanket. It also had a... More

The bad - 1) Dead flies, dust, and dirt on the window sills in the breakfast area for my entire stay. 2) Towels that were stained and ripped. 3) AC unit in the room blew directly at the bed. Since it cycled every 15 minutes I couldn't actually use the one bed. 4) Don't use the computer - insecure Windows... More

This is our second stay at this hotel. The location is fantastic.....right next to downtown Blowing Rock and a short drive to Boone and other surrounding activities. The rooms are clean, linens are soft and fresh and the staff has always been super accommodating. During our most recent stay we realized we had booked online for the incorrect night. The... More

The location is great. It is really close to Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie Railroad, and downtown Blowing Rock. Actually, Boone is just a 10 minute drive or so drive north as well. We've stayed here twice and the complimentary breakfast is a plus too. Rooms were clean, and we took advantage of the indoor swimming pool. Great place.

We have been to this hotel several times. Every time we come to Blowing a Rock, this is where we stay. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Breakfast is "ok". Excellent coffee, though. Don't miss out on the Woodlands BBQ just up the road. It's a minute walk and about a mile from town.

I am surprised to see positive reviews because this place is NOT nice. I would advise you to look elsewhere. We have stayed in a handful of Holiday Inn Express hotels and this was not on par with the others. We paid $150 and felt like it should have been $80. It was dingy, dated, and in need of a... More

First time at a Holiday Inn Express and found it to be the typical large chain hotel. This particular visit was right after the Memorial Day weekend, so it was very quiet. The hotel is built on a hill, so the ground floor is above the first floor...kind of odd. The breakfast has hot and cold items, the bedding is... More
