We spent a weekend in N Wilkesboro, NC and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff was wonderful. They were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast buffet was very nice. The thing I liked best about this hotel was the size and brightness of the room where they served breakfast and the lobby. Very spacious and even though the... More

Rooms were plenty big and lobby was huge. Breakfast was average and service was pretty good. Only complaint is that the fitness room is small and the machines are old. Overall better than average hotel.

You can't really ask much more of a hotel needed for business. The hotel is clean, comfortable and convenient. As others have said, it may be in need of a renovation but that can be said for many hotels. Fitness/exercise room is lacking and they do have an arrangement with a club nearby but that's difficult if you are there... More

My family and I stay here a few times a year while visiting family. The staff continues to be amazing. When you bring a problem to their attention, they do their best to address it. Unfortunately, at nearly 30 years old, this property is developing serious issues. On our Christmas visit, the ceiling of the bathroom was covered in red... More

I have only stayed here once, but some of my co-workers stay here quite often when they are in town. Very clean rooms and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I will definitely stay here again.

Out second time spending 3 nights here (we have family in area) Very clean, beds are comfortable, and showers are very nice. Free breakfast is excellent. We have stayed here in the summer and winter. The pool is nice. It is right on Route 421 so it is convenient on way to Asheville and Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

This hotel is very nice. We stopped just for the night as we were touring the Blue Ridge Park Way enjoying the scenery. It had a huge king size bed, clean shower and room. Friendly, nice, and helpful staff. Well stocked and hot breakfast bar. It is located cross street from shopping center.
