I have been to several events at this location from wedding receptions, proms, business dinners, expos, etc. and I have truly enjoyed my experience every time. The lobby, dinning area, and ballroom are beautiful and very relaxing. The staff is so nice and helpful.

I came here after leaving another sketchy place at which I had made reservations at online. Was so happy to be somewhere clean. Bill was at the desk and very friendly and helpful. Nice pool, good breakfast, rates good...room was very large. I hated the pillows but usually bring my own and had forgotten. I'll stay here when I come... More

I stayed here this past weekend for a scrapbook retreat. The lobby and rooms were clean and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was different the two mornings I was there which was nice. One morning there was bacon, the next we had turkey sausage. The staff in the dining area were not very friendly but everyone else was... More

Pleasant stay. Attractive lobby and efficient check-in. A bit pricey for us, but worth it for extra comfortable beds, access to an elevator and convenience to services. Good TV and shower. Lots of plug-ins for electronics with free WiFi. Our room was clean with a desk and side chair. Lots of pillows. Only downside had to do with function. It... More

My husband and I arrived at this Holiday Express in Wilkesboro exhausted and looking forward to a clean room & hot shower. Unfortunately, the reservations we had made by phone with the centralized Sister-hotel system had not been transmitted to the Holiday Express. Lucky for us, Joyce was at the front desk and with many phone calls back and forth... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Wilkesboro on 10 Oct 14. They are remodeling the hotel, however the room/hotel was very clean and a great value for the money! They have a wonderful breakfast and the staff is very nice. I will stay here again for sure!

I have been staying at this hotel for probably ten years. I've been coming to Wilkesboro for 20. This hotel is ALWAYS clean, ALWAYS comfortable, and the stay is ALWAYS helpful and nice. Did I say always enough? The only place that beats this hotel is a rental house with a big family for twice the price. That's it! The... More

This is a fairly typical holiday inn.... Building is old, has been remodeled but can't hide the 'ugly bones'. As in, the mildew smell, stained curtain, and an ottoman that is plain ol' ratty w the cuts.... ugh.

I checked in at 01:00 am and the after hours desk agent was very polite and efficient. probably the fastest check in I have ever had but didn't feel rushed at all. Just what I needed.
