Had it not been for a few items, the flat screen tv, the coffee maker, blow dryer & digital clock radio (all of which I appreciated), I would have sworn that I had been transported to a 1950's motel. We loved this place! Brought back such good memories of childhood, tile walls in the bathroom, retro furniture and the hospitality... More

Alpen Acres Motel is an old fashioned, unprepossessing, good deal. The bed was good, the room was comfortable, the TV appeared to be good (but we didn't turn it on), the bathroom was good, clean with a nice shower and had a real exhaust fan that actually worked. The main room had a window that worked and the bathroom did... More

The service was fantastic -- they made accomadotions for us to get in late, woke up early to check us in and out before they normally open, and even dropped off a left item at the USPS for us! Absolutely splendid, so friendly. Rooms were clean, pleasant, and affordable.

Locally owned motel. Very clean, roomy, and comfortable rooms. Friendly owners. Less than a mile to Tweetsie and close to other popular areas. Perfect motel outside of the city, but close to everything. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely place to stay at. The rooms are not large but everything was clean and tidy. The furniture is good quality and it is just like being at home. We had a warm welcome when we arrived. It is close to Main Street in Blowing Rock where there are two fine eatery's - The Six Pence Pub... More

I called to reserve a room during one of the weekends of the Thomas the Tank Engine event at Tweetsie. The room - a queen size bed with a sleeper sofa - was clean and very nice. The pool and playground were also great. The owner is very nice. The location is extremely convenient to both the roads through town... More

We stayed at this hotel yesterday, and it was OK. The rooms were clean. My biggest disappointment was that when I called from the road , the receptionist asked if I qualified for any discounts, and we agreed that I did . She said the room would be $80.00. When I checked in I gave her the card that entitled... More

After travelling the USA for the last 2.5 weeks this is by far our worst lodging both in terms of value and quality. In need of updating, shower fine if you are 4ft tall. Offers breakfast but don't be fooled it is donuts, granola bars and porridge but no hot water or microwave. If you are wanting to have the... More
