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

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
