My family had a great time when we stayed at the Alpen Acres Motel. First off, the room was clean, smelled good, and was located in a great spot between Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. The heated pool was clean with floatables abound for the children to use. Nice playground too if you have small children. Pat was extremely friendly... More

Clean, comfortable rooms and facilities. Great location for exploring Boone, Blowing Rock, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Tweetsie Railroad, the Blue Ridge Pkwy, or Boone.

Spent three nights here in July and everything was perfect. Spotless rooms, quiet location, beautiful pool...just can't say enough about this great place! I highly recommend this hidden gem. I've definitely found a great place for quiet and peaceful getaways

Staying at the Alpen Acres is like staying at your Grandma's house - clean, comfortable, quiet, with everything you need and very nice folks around, but older and not "modern." The bathroom could use some updating, but it was OK for our needs. The room was immaculately clean and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed our overnight stay very much... More

The grounds are nice with a horseshoe pit, shuffleboard, grills and picnic tables along with a very clean swimming pool. We will definitely stay here again. If you... More

Will say the memory foam beds are a little hard. But rooms very clean and cleaning every day was done great. Great rates and easy to find. Staff very helpful in giving directions on places to go and see everything around area. Liked you got free water in room and coffee.

This motel is very basic and the furniture and amenities in the room very dated. We had a double room and the bed was so uncomfortable with a mattress like memory foam that had lost it's memory! The air conditioning was deafening. The bathroom was very small and the toilet was hard to even sit on due to it's size... More

My experience began before I even arrived at the motel. We were making our reservations through hotels.com. Originally, we had only planned to stay one night. However, after making that reservation, we decided on a two night stay instead. Even though the same room we were booking was showing as available, a call to hotels.com proved futile as they made...

We absolutely loved this amazing hotel! The cabin was clean and everything was nice and tidy. They kept the roads clean even in the hardest snow. We had a lovely time and pat helped us out a lot! Pat is an incredible person. We will definitely be recommending this hotel to our friends and family. -Eduardo and Norelys
