5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2009

We stay at Alpen Acres 2 to 4 times a year. That should tell you that we like the place. It's not the fanciest, but the location is great. It's very clean and well-kept. The folks there are very friendly and helpful. Everything in the room is functional and in working order.

We'll be back there soon.

Excellent access to Blowing Rock, NC, Appalachain Ski Resort and Tweetsie Railroad. The nicest people work to assure a comfortable nights stay every time I have stayed there.

My wife and I have stayed at the Alpen Acres many times and each one has been a great and memorable experience. It's private and extremely comfortable and has a family feel to the place. The rooms are well decorated and have all the essentials: TV/Cable and airconditioning with fresh coffee available at the front desk every morning. It's brilliantly located, close enough to the local amenities but tucked away from the busy centers of Boone & Blowing Rock. Hope to be checking in again soon...

We have just returned to the UK from our trip which included a stay at the Alpen Acres Motel. What a delightful setting amongst the trees and mountains. The swimming pool was a real treat in which to cool off and relax or there was a games area, where we enjoyed several shuffle board contests!

Rooms were of excellent standard: the beds were absolutely great, comfortable and firm. Decor was of a high quality as was the level of cleanliness and the air conditioning really helped in the heat.

The office staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful; nothing was too much trouble.

Our whole stay was one to remember and what an ideal retreat at the end of the day..... we will be back!

I spent an entire week in Blowing Rock, NC and returned back to Northeast, USA completely refreshed and rejunivated. Alpen Acres was a quaint and cozy hotel tucked away from the hustle and hurry of the world. The rooms reminded me of a little cottage and I looked forward to retiring there for the night. During my stay, the pool provided me with the opportunity to keep up with my excersise regiment. On a couple of occasions, I found these lovely walking trails that not only provided excersise but fantastic views. You must check out Bass lake in Blowing Rock!!
The bathrooms were roomy and clean. Just the way I like them!!
I am already looking forward to my return trip next summer!!

I had a very enjoyable stay at Aplen Acres Motel last month. The motel is situated in a very beautiful and scenic location in the mountains. The room was very spacious,comfortable and tastefully decorated. The bed was the best I have slept in for a long time. It was like a home from home. The owner and staff were very welcoming, helpful and made every effort to make my stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
There was lots of information available on the various local attractions. I look forward to my next stay at Alpen Acres and some more pleasant memories of an enjoyable vacation.

Alpen Acres Motel is a very quaint & charming motel in Blowing Rock. The landscaping is beautiful, with more grounds than most any other lodging facilities in the area. The heated pool is refreshing for day and evening swimming, and it's a good place just to spend time playing shuffleboard, badminton, or just relaxing by the pool. The rooms were very clean, and the staff was helpful. I felt very comfortable and at home here. It's an older facility, which adds to the charm. The price was very reasonable, and I'll definitely come back soon!
(PS: I think this motel could be Blowing Rock's best kept secret!)
