We stayed here with our three small children in late September for out Tweetsie Railroad visit. We fell on love with this place. We had a family suite that was roomy. This motel had an outdoor heated pool which is the only motel in the area with one. Even in the brisk September weather, we were able to utilize the... More

I had Room 8. It had a comfortable queen bed with a frig, nice tv, bottled water and seating area. The room was very clean and looked like it had been newly updated. The furniture was outdated but made it feel like you were in the 1960s. The only concern but some black mold in the tile along the tub.... More

Had a very friendly at the Alpen Acres when I arrived in torrential rain that had shrouded the Blue Ridge Mountains in thick cloud. The motel is situated in an elevated position away from the highway and is an old style motel with a little row of rooms where you can park outside your room. It's vert convenient for the... More

We had stopped at night just for an over-nighter. The owner at the front desk could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The pros - the room was clean. The cons - there was no water pressure to take a shower, almost making it impossible in the morning; the coffee maker didn't work; and the TV didn't work either.... More

Arrived to find that our Expedia booking had not appeared on their reservation system although we had booked8 months prior. The owner was lovely and booked us in straight away. Our King size room had a very comfy bed and all the facilities we required. Excellent for a standard motel room. Quiet situation and only a few minutes from downtown... More

We made a reservation for two nights over the weekend, but ended up arriving much later at night than the office would be open. We called ahead to let them know, and they were super nice: put the key on the office door for us and let us check in the next day. The staff were always friendly. Now for... More

We stayed 2 nights. The motel is quiet and clean. The only thing lacking was a microwave and fridge...we were told we could request them but none were available. Other than that, it was a nice, modest place to stay.

Not a luxury hotel but was nice for our one night getaway. It was away from the lights of town so you could actually see the night sky. Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and a very short drive into Blowing Rock. The pool was heated and there was a playground and grill would make it nice for longer stays.... More

Checked a few well known hotels, rates were very high. We were looking for a one night get-a-way and did not want to spend a lot of money but wanted a nice place. The Alpen Motel was perfect, the desk person was really nice, almost felt like a B & B, location was perfect, right off Parkway and located between... More
