We stayed here for a week with the grand kids while skiing at Appalachian mountain. Now, this is an older hotel, so the carpet was a bit worn, the towels a little shabby and the room had that "old hotel" smell. But, with that said, we had a great stay here. The staff was wonderful, answering every question about the... More

Very modern and updated rooms with nice beds and bathrooms. The pool wasn't that great and it was lacking a hot tub, but minor gripe there. Easy to find when driving into town. And while it was far from gourmet, the included breakfast did have plenty of options and was really nice to have on the way out to a... More

Room clean. Good location and good price. Went as a family so room was big and quiet a good selection of TV channels. On the negative, common area needed vaccuming,... More

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.
