This hotel had some pluses and minuses, but was okay for a medium cost overnight stay. Check-in was quick even if not warm and friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious and the fitness center was fine. The downside was the crowded and perhaps limited breakfast - but it was "free", so it is hard to say it was not... More

my stay FAILED to live up to EVEN a low STANDARD. This was the hotel picked for a wedding party...bad decision. The location and site were unattractive AT BEST.

Lobby area seemed unkempt and appeared to need a good cleaning. Not what we were hoping for upon arrival. Asked for quiet room. Location on backside was fine but one fellow patron was lacking good manners and tried to impress whomever might listen with their LOUD AND UNTALENTED singing in the hallway each time (3) he visited the ice machine....

We booked a room here last minute for a quick weekend getaway. Even though Hotel was full, it was quiet, clean and well-kept. Indoor Pool made my daughter happy. Everyone was helpful and we couldn't have been more pleased. Excellent value for our stay.

Decide to visit Blowing Rock again for the second time this month. Our first stay at the Holiday Inn Express was fantastic. Our return stay was so so. Our room was not prepared to meet the requested standards. We need a room that is free of sprays that are used to freshen the room. This was not done. The allergies... More

Comparable to most Hampton Inns, except slightly better breakfast, and less expensive: Up to date room, clean, with microwave, mini-frig, etc. Also, we liked finding a washable, light weight comforter and bedspread. Only downside was mild musty order when entering room because they don't leave AC units on. This quickly dissipated when AC was turned on. This value will draw... More

Pretty good place for the money. The front desk was efficient and friendly. Very nice breakfast, but a little crowded. The bed was comfortable and the room was nice. The bathroom was also clean. My family may stay here again the next time we're in the area.

This was fine for us as we were only there for one night. It is close to downtown either a short drive or if you like waking you could do that. Blowing rock is quaint town and lots of little shops and some very good restuarants

Staff was really friendly, motorcycling parking under the canopy in view of the front desk. If you are coming off the BRP 321 is the direct route but if you are on your motorcycle and like Switchbacks and curves take 221 Rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. Choices of soft and firm pillows
