We stayed here for 2 nights. The 2nd day we were out of our room from 9am and returned at 4:30 ready to shower and chill out for a while, but our room had NOT been cleaned. When we asked at the front desk, they only said sorry, we will do your room next. We had to go back out,... More

One of the more affordable hotels in Blowing Rock, it is a good place to stopover if you are driving through the Blue Ridge Parkway. Free breakfast and WiFi is provided, room was spacious for 4 of us, and all necessary amenities were provided.

This hotel was what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Although it appeared to be a newish hotel, there were some signs that no one is looking at the details. Most disturbing were the several black patches on the bathroom ceiling that appeared to be mold. Our room was on the lower level had a view of a tall... More

This has not been our first stay at this hotel although it has been a couple of years. The room was very clean, comfortable beds and loved the linens. The downfall of the room is the A/C. It comes on and off all night and sounds like an airplane.

This has become our home-away-from-home when in Blowing Rock. Large rooms and the best breakfast of our travels. The Manager is always eager to please and it shows with the enthusiasm of the staff. Close to everything, though now in walking distance. Be aware that there is road construction, but you don't hear a thing in the rooms.

Clean and economical. Two doors down from an Outback Steakhouse. We spent a restful night here after driving 290 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway is reason enough to visit Blowing Rock. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff who are not rushed and focused on you! The property is a bit lacking, main road literally out the front door, no outside property use to speak of. The hotel picture suggests a cabin type hotel in the mountains. Not so. With that said, if you are looking for fabulous customer service, great accommodations,... More

Stayed for one night during our two day trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The reception desk was very helpful recommending places to eat. The room was huge, very clean and very nice. The view outside was also amazing! Will stay here again if in the area!

We stayed for two nights while in the Boone/Blowing Rock area. It is very close to the Tanger Outlets and a handful of restaurants. The room was nice and clean. It does not have a great view of the mountains. The price was great and the breakfast was okay.
