We booked a room through a travel site for Alpen Acres Motel. As many times as we've been up to Boone and Blowing Rock, I don't know how I missed it. We usually stay at a chain, but it was booked. This is a small vintage motel with a heated outdoor pool. We were swimming outdoors in April. In addition,... More

First of all, don't pay attention to the virtual tour, because evidently, it was produced 8 years ago when they still had the kiddy pool, which is now cemented up. My family and I stayed here overnight, in two double rooms and it was the most miserable night I have ever spent in a motel. The beds felt like they... More

Thank you for staying with us Jessica, and thank you for your comments. We are very sorry that you didn't have a good experience. It is fair to say that our property is not a Holiday Inn. We were clearly not a good fit for you and your family. We are not a chain. We are a quaint and quiet... More

For 2 years in a row, we (10 of us on a motocycle trip) stayed at Alpine Acres. The accommodiations were awesome, clean rooms, the staff was very helpful and the price...worth every penny. Very nice stay and yes, we will be back this summer as well.

Very cute and small lodge! The closest lodge to the mountain and the people who work there are great! Only thing I felt missing was a dryer machine however the ski lodge had them so we made out. Ask for Pat!

Vintage motel to be sure. Friendly staff, clean rooms. The best parts are: close to Blowing Rock, at the corner of 321 and the road to Ski Mtn, and the driveway is not impossible to climb in the event of ice...which we had. It's just a few miles from Boone too. The bed was gel, but had a crater in... More

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

Room is clean and staff is friendly. The staff is friendly and the location is great if you want to do some sightseeing. Affordable price and a great value. Room is clean and bathroom is kept up well. They also have a ski house in the back of the property available. It has a nice area for recreation like horseshoes,... More
