My experience began before I even arrived at the motel. We were making our reservations through hotels.com. Originally, we had only planned to stay one night. However, after making that reservation, we decided on a two night stay instead. Even though the same room we were booking was showing as available, a call to hotels.com proved futile as they made...

We absolutely loved this amazing hotel! The cabin was clean and everything was nice and tidy. They kept the roads clean even in the hardest snow. We had a lovely time and pat helped us out a lot! Pat is an incredible person. We will definitely be recommending this hotel to our friends and family. -Eduardo and Norelys

I travel a great deal ... Alpen Acres is the best value that I have found in years. Reasonably priced, comfortable, clean and first class amenities. I would stay there anytime I was in the area again. D Artemas Holden

We stayed for one night on the way to Sugar Valley ski resort. I would stay here again for longer if I wanted to visit the Blowing Rock. It is an older quaint motel that is in nice shape. The breakfast snack was just that snacks, granola bars,instant oatmeal ect just as advertised.

Had a lovely time at Alpen Acres. Our only complaints were thin walls. The owner Pat is wonderful!!!!!!!!! They are really good about keeping the area clear of snow so you can come and go without hazard. The breakfast snacks were perfect. Oatmeal, fruit and snack bars, muffins. Plenty of coffee brewing. Very reasonable prices!

We stayed at the Alpen Acres on December 14, 2013 on a day the weather was somewhat cold and unpleasant. We were looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable room to come back to after a busy day and that is exactly what we found. It was not terribly busy (anywhere in the Boone/Blowing Rock area, really) because it was cold... More

Booked the Chalet and a room for our family getaway. The Chalet is a one bedroom with small kitchen and gas fireplace. Big enough for my husband and I and our two young granddaughters on a roll away bed. My son and daughter in law in the bedroom at the motel. The family were able to have family time at... More

We went to Boone, NC without a reservation on MLK weekend. Running out of options, a cancellation and a timely phone call got us a room here. Due to the price of 99 in peak season out expectations were low. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, location, and service. This motel far exceeded our expectations. Recommend wholeheartedly.

Thank you for your kind review. We're glad we had something to offer you last minute (I think we had just received a last minute cancellation on that room!) Our area was busy for MLK weekend but in actual fact our peak rates are in October--which is a beautiful time of year to visit up here if you are able... More

Nice older place with a charm and some modern upgrades like a flat TV and newer furniture. My room had 2 queen size beds and was big enough to fit another one. It was very clean and warm. It also had a strange humming noise coming from below the floor like an pump or something similar running all the time.... More

Thank you so much for the detailed review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. There isn't anything below the room you were in that would explain a humming noise. The only thing we can think of, depending on when you stayed, is a faulty heater in a nearby room that has been running very loud that we are... More

First time back in the snow in years. Alpine Acres Motel was very welcoming, "homey" and comfortable. The motel is older but maintained very well. Beautiful Christmas lights along the ridge of the property. When walked in the room, it was absolutely spotless, well laid out and absolutely warm, which made a great welcome. The very next street to the... More
