“Great place - recently remodeled. Would stay here again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

This is a great hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. The rooms were recently remodeled. The person at the front desk told us the remodel was done about 6 months ago. The only change I would make to the remodel is the toilet. The lid is against a shelf which is restricting. The bed was firm and the hotel provides both firm and soft pillows for you to use depending on your preference. Breakfast had a good selection. There were even different types of eggs to choose from (scrambled or hard boiled). The staff was very courteous. Overall an excellent stay.

This hotel is very nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was polite and helpful. We were located close to the downtown area yet within a few miles of The Blowing Rock.

The only negative things we experienced was pillows. While the hotel tries hard to give you a choice of pillows, I would bring my own next time around.

Good: TV, pool, breakfast, clean, very quiet rooms/halls.
Bad: room ac didn't work well. clicked on and off all night.
Ugly: Bathroom remodel poorly done. Shelf encroaches toilet so that lid cannot stay up.

Housekeeping staff here are excellent and very helpful. This is a nice place to stay if you don't want to stay in one of the more cutesy places in Blowing Rock. Much better breakfast and longer hours than some of the smaller motels in town that offer so-called continental breakfasts -- also bigger rooms. HIE is not cheap though on weekends particularly. Some other motels are less expensive but I definitely would stay at this HIE again. For some unknown reason fitness center was closed during our several night stay.

A good value in a beautiful village. When it is HOT in the South it is 20 degrees cooler in the mountains. Blowing Rock is one of the best spots in the U. S. of A. and the Holiday Inn Express met all our needs.

I chose this hotel for its central location to several mountain attractions. After a day of hiking and sightseeing, it was nice to return in the evening to a cool, relaxing room. Breakfast was plentiful and good. The friendly, helpful staff were a plus.

I, my wife and three year old daughter stayed at this hotel for a couple nights on a little getaway to the mountains. We didn't have any complaints during our stay. The rooms were clean and spacious. My daughter really enjoyed the indoor swimming pool. The free breakfast consisted of eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, muffins, etc. The location was right near everything we wanted to do. Tweetsie Railroad, Mystery Hill and Boone are right up the road a bit. Grandfather Mountain and Linville Caverns are only a short drive away. The Blue Ridge parkway is very close to the hotel.
