What a great place to stay - right off the highway - and very friendly staff - hotel looks and feel brand new and will be renovating again soon. Great breakfast bar. Will make this a top place to stay on our future trips

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. The property seems a bit dated and run down on the inside. The carpet in my room was loose and you can tell where... More

We have stayed in this hotel twice for conferences. The people are friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The meals are very good and varied, better than most continental breakfast's. They gave a discount rates because of the conference and even though we met until 1 am one night we had no problems.

This hotel is perfect! We went for a family reunion and got a great rate. The hotel is close to many restaurants and shopping! The room was clean and anything we needed was provided right away. There are many delicious options to choose from for breakfast! Definitely would recommend as a top hotel in the area.
