First stayed here in Aug 2011 when bringing an App State student to campus and ended staying here for every visit until this past May for graduation. The staff was always friendly, helpful and hardworking. I watched its renovations which brought it up a few notches from the first visit and the rooms suited my needs every time! I did... More

This hotel is the nicest Holiday Inn I have personally been to. I am not sure why they classify this a 2 star hotel but it is much nicer. The internet at this location is faster than any other holiday inn I have been to. Two reasons that this is a 4 and not a 5. The customer service is... More

Having stayed at this hotel on several visits to Boone, my family and I always feel at home. Our latest visit again met this expectation as we found the front desk staff to be extremely pleasant as were the housekeepers and other staff members we encountered. Our suite was comfortable and the rearrangement of living room furniture provided an improvement... More

I recently relocated to Boone for work and had the hardest time finding a place to live. I ended up staying here for five weeks ! My room was very clean. I was on the first floor and even though my room was directly across from housekeeping, and the guest laundry there was never an issue of noise. There was... More

The hotel was very clean, good size, quiet, considering we stayed for new years week, employees are a good asset, close to the slopes, the ac unit is kind of loud, but i guess that is how those things are, to make the story short i could not find anything wrong. I even had the breakfast that i normally skip,... More

From the gleaming marble lobby to the beautiful, clean room with all the amenities I like, and a breakfast so big and southern that I was amazed--included hot food, too--I had an almost-perfect experience at this hotel. I didn't expect anything but average, and it far exceeded it. In fact, the lobby was more glamorous than some very expensive hotels... More

I recently stayed at the HI Ex in Boone for New Years eve - 3 day stay with wife and kids. Great Hotel - clean rooms, lots of goof restaurants nearby. Convenient to Sugar Mountain. Perfect place for a short get away at a reasonable cost.
