Stayed here overnight while we were in town for a wedding. The room was nice, you can tell it had been upgraded. We had a room with a balcony, but the view was of some crummy houses behind the hotel, not to mention that the workers are smoked below our room so we could smell cigarette smoke the whole entire...

We checked in for one night while in Boone for a football game. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and they did a great job! The breakfast was better than expected... Lots of choices. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed at HIE for two days. The hotel room was very clean and neat with microwave, fridge, and other amenities. The breakfast was very good and the staff did a great job in keeping up with the crowd. It was Appalachian State move in day, so to say the least, was very, very busy. But all in all was... More

After having driven 6 hours (about 160 miles) on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we were ready to relax and have dinner. Boone seemed to be a good exit with possible options for lodging. I am a Priority Club Member so I chose the HI Express -- a good decision. Conveniently located on Blowing Rock Road, a main thoroughfare, it was... More

Stayed for one night in route to a family wedding. I chose this hotel based on other reviews and then got worried when I read some negative ones. We found our room on the fifth floor to be clean and comfortable. We loved the balcony but a suggestion would be to put some outdoors chairs and a small table there.... More

For everyone's safety, I want to warn you about the dangerous whirlpool/shower combo we had at this HIE in Boone. Upon check in I was greeted by a vey friendly front desk reception who told me that as a platinum member, I had been upgraded to their Executive King Room with a whirlpool tub. My very first question was, does... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate your feedback on the design of the whirlpool bathtub. We understand that the design of the tub is deeper than the standard tubs and can be more difficult to get in and out of. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope the safety... More

A large event was held in Boone, NC and we stayed at this hotel. Note: there were 600 people attending this event so other hotels were used as well. This hotel bent over backwards to accommodate their guests. When there was not enough seating for breakfast in the "common" area, they opened up one of the meeting rooms with tables... More

We stayed on the third floor on July 4th. The cost was WAY too expensive for the filthy room we were in! It was very clear that the people before us smoked in the room and it reeked of cigarettes! The balcony was covered in cigarette butts too! There was black hair all over the bathroom floor and in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We're sorry you had a poor experience with regard to the cleanliness of your room. Even though we are a 100% non-smoking hotel, and we require all guests to sign an acknowledgement of this policy upon check-in, some guests choose to ignore the policy. We're grateful you brought the cleanliness/cigarette... More

We were here for the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. Hotel was convenient enough to the games but even more convenient to shops and restaurants in Boone. Looks to have been recently built or redone. Everything was clean and in great shape. Breakfast was delicious and plenty to choose from. The sitting area in the lobby was really nice with lots...
