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

Great location on this property between Blowing Rock and Boone.This is a classic 40's-50's motels with smallish rroms, and "vintage" furnishings. Pretty, old-timey wallpaper in our room. The rooms have very comfortable gel/memory foam beds, and flat screen TVs with a large channel selection. The bathrooms are very compact, but have great old tub/showers with fantastic water pressure. The host... More

we had a delightful stay at this motel. it is old-fashioned -- in a good way. simple, well-maintained rooms (we stayed in #12 with two queens). helpful, friendly staff. beautiful property with lots of greenery and pretty plantings. the pool was heavenly after a tough hike. we'll be back.

We were helping our son move into his new apartment, using it as an excuse to spend a weekend in the area. We were pleasantly surprised with the Alpen Acres. It was very clean and brought back fond memories of staying in motels before they all started to become quite generic. The pool and picnic area is beautiful and very... More

My husband and I had a great experience at this motel. The owners were very polite and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. We will definitely consider Alpen Acres for our next stay in the mountains!

We like to go to Blowing Rock when the weather gets too hot in the Piedmont. We can usually get a room at Alpen Acres when we want it. The staff is friendly and the rooms are small but pleasant. A big plus is the swimming pool which is heated when the weather starts to turn a little cool.

The hotel was close to the BRP which was nice. The room was functional but furnishings were old. It was clean and bed was fine. The office didn't open until 8:30 am which was inconvenient. The breakfast consisted of packaged mini doughnuts or granola bars and some fruit. The facility was nicely landscaped. It's very basic lodgings. The pool looked... More

We have stayed here for the past 7 years on our yearly trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Friendly, Clean, easy access to the parkway, excellent price! Close to a wide selection of restaurants. The current owners have been there i believe 23 years. We left a helmet behind and she had it wrapped up and waiting for us. AAAAAA++++++++

We were delighted to discover Alpen Acres as a quiet, clean, inexpensive place to spend a pleasant evening in the very "touristy" little town of Blowing Rock. Although our room was tiny, it was sparklingly clean and everything was in perfect working order.
