I stayed here a few days while working nearby. The room was clean and quite and an exceptional value considering the price. The breakfast was good was the staff was semi helpful. My only complaint was that I left my iPad charger plugged into the wall. I called on two separate occasions and was told that they were unable to... More

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.

This is consistently a great place to stay. Claire, the manager, and her staff are super and made our stay very pleasant. The breakfast bar is amazing, well stocked, and refreshed frequently. The hotel rooms and meeting rooms are excellent, bathroom facilities always spotless. Last but not least, the homemade cookies at the front desk are the killer.

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
