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

LG Frosting Thank you for the review of our hotel. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. It is an older hotel that was refurbished in 2010, and we get a lot of positive feedback from the guest. You are correct that this is not like some of the new Holiday Inn expresses,... 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

The overall room was clean and quite nice. The staff was courteous and willing to aid with advice about local restaurants and sights to see. Avoid the local Italian restaurant as the food was awful. The pool was small and not always suitable because of the lack of resources. Towels were not always available and waiting for staff to bring... More

Clean room and comfortable bed. Breakfast was included and had a nice selection of hot and cold items. We were just passing through the area but we were pleased with our stay here. Nothing fancy, but certainly lived up to what you would expect for the price.

My husband and I stayed for one night during a road trip across the Appalachian Mountains. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We were looking forward to a nice swim in the pool.
