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.

Liked this little old style roadside motel. They were also very nice at the front desk. The grounds had a heated pool, swing set and charcoal grill. The rooms were average size, but had no frig or microwave. What we didn't like was the flimsy door knob lock on the door. Our door knob was loose and if we were... More

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
