I visited Blowing Rock this past weekend in an effort to escape the big city heat of Charlotte. When booking online, I noticed surprisingly quite a few of the quaint; family owned Blowing Rock establishments were mostly booked. At least, if you were looking for a king bed they were booked. I noticed the Holiday Inn was decently ranked and made my reservations the day of my visit and requesting a kind bed wasn't an issue. Upon arrival, check-in was easy, staff was friendly, and the hotel overall seemed to be as depicted online from other visitors post. There is additional parking around back and if you have a lower level room, then you really never has to interact with anyone coming and going and that was fine by me. The room was clean and well kept and everything was in order. Inside the room there is a decent size flat screen TV, coffee maker, mini refrigerator and microwave. Bathrooms are cozy, but clean and I only noticed a few minor maintenance items. Nothing that kept me from enjoying my stay. It was very quiet as well. The next morning I ventured up to the dining area and it was pretty packed with guests, which is a good sign. All items were well stocked and I had no issues getting what I wanted. If it was cold it was suppose to be cold and if it was hot, then it was served hot, simple enough.
Other points to mention, the Holiday Inn has an indoor pool and free Wifi access. It is also within walking distance to some great restaurants. Road construction still continues on the highway, in and around Blowing Rock. The hotel itself isn't a place you would stay for scenic views anyway and the road construction is just that, construction. Its location is convenient to all things Blowing Rock however, just minutes from the Outlet shops, Blue Ridge Parkway, Tweetsie, tubing, winter time skiing, etc.
Overall a good stay and I would certainly return.
