We were driving looking for a reasonable place to stay and stumbled across this gem. We could tell when we drove up that the motel was in kept up in good shape. The front desk woman was very nice and helpful. The price was right so we took a chance. When we walked into the room it had a pleasant... More

We spent 4 nights at the motel this week. The room was very comfy and had everything we needed - fridge, microwave, TV, coffee maker. It was spacious for myself and my two sons (ages 7 and10). The beds are super comfy. The boys had some fun on the kids play area. Pat and all the staff are very friendly... More

We were traveling through and stopped here at the last minute. The staff was courteous and accomadating. The rooms were clean, but slightly run down due to the age of the motel. Aged. Slight smell like "my grandmother's longtime home". Pricey for the quality.

We enjoyed two nights in this delightful place. It was spotlessly clean; owners were very friendly; and the property is located on a hill above the road, so it is very quiet. We also parked right outside our door which was convenient. It was close to both Boone and Blowing Rock. I would stay here over a chain motel on... More

Awesome place. Very cozy. The beds were nice and firm and the towels were super clean. A nice change from the typical hotel chains. Would definitely stay again and would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

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.
