After travelling the USA for the last 2.5 weeks this is by far our worst lodging both in terms of value and quality. In need of updating, shower fine if you are 4ft tall. Offers breakfast but don't be fooled it is donuts, granola bars and porridge but no hot water or microwave. If you are wanting to have the... More

This Motel is close to everything! The Blue Ridge Parkway is located less than a mile from Alpen Acres. The Parkway offers beautiful views, a scenic drive, and for those more adventurous unlimited hiking trails. Alpen Acres is very peaceful and set just about 5 miles outside of Boone, NC. In Boone you can find restaurants, shops, and even a... More

We found the hotel to be a bit dated - old carpet, linens, decor, etc., but clean and quiet. It had a mini-fridge for our leftover BBQ from Woodlands BBQ (I highly recommend it - in Blowing Rock), and had a coffeemaker and coffee for the early mornings. Located about 5 minutes away from downtown Blowing Rock, it is positioned... More

Our first time to the Blowing Rock and Boone area, and we were pleasantly surprised. The motel is located in the middle of both towns, a mile away from the blue ridge pkwy and about 2 miles from Tweesie Railroad attraction. So the location was great. I believe the business is family owned so there were some nice touches like:... More

Convenient location to Blowing Rock and Boone. Many other travel destinations from this area as well. Pat was very friendly and helpful made our stay very pleasant. Rooms are spacious and equipped with all we needed. A wonderful weekend get-a-way.

This is a great motel for families. Very quiet and clean. We stayed in the room with 2 double beds and a futon. The room itself was really big! My kids loved the pool too. The location is great right between Boone and Blowing rock--you're not far from restaurants and shopping. The mattresses were too firm for my liking but... More

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.
