“Blue Ridge Parkway Rest Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you are traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway and you need a great place to stay with your pooches this Holiday Inn has it all. The owners are dog lovers themselves & had a great outdoor dog walk through a maze of woodland with mountain laurel in bloom. You really wouldn't know the highway was close by. My dogs loved every sniff of the trail which is right off the edge of the property. There is a pool, restaurant with indoor/outdoor seating. Food was good. A must stay to relax rest & recharge after a long drive. The beds are very comfortable too. Easy access in or out for me & my pets. Management was extremely accommodating even without a reservation & there was a huge conference in town but they still found room for us at a discounted AAA rate. Best management team I have encountered at any Holiday Inn Express to date!

I stayed here with a group for one night and even with AAA rate the room was still $180.00 per night. It's a neat older hotel that has been kept up very nice and if the rates were around $100.00 I would give it an excellent instead of average. They do give you a very good hot breakfast bar that is much better than a continental breakfast at other hotels but it's not worth $70.00. The reception desk people are very nice and professional, the room was clean and looked like it had been recently remodeled. The hallways and door to your room along with stairs and elevator showed the age of the hotel. When I pay $180 a night it's usually for an Embassy Suites, this Holiday Inn should be much less in their rate.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevators or rooms near the exit doors. When people use the doors they slam very...

I really liked this hotel. The hotel was bright, open and airy. The room was comfortable and clean. We booked on Priceline Express, good deal!. Nice staff and a very convenient location.
To be honest, I wasnt expecting much because of the other reviews I read, but I was very comfortable and pleased by this choice.

Unfortunately we only stayed here one night as a stop over on the Blue Ridge Parkway, but it was easily the nicest hotel of our entire stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our room was just lovely and luxurious. The best breakfast, spread over two areas, so no crowding.
Wish we could have stayed longer. Can't fault it.

I stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday. If you make your reservation on Expedia, you will be treated as a second-class citizen. The king-size bed that I had reserved on Expedia was not available when we got to the hotel at 7:00 PM and we had to sleep in two double beds. My girlfriend was not a happy camper.... There is only one elevator which results in long waits when the hotel is crowded. The restaurant also gets very crowded at breakfast-time and some people had to share tables with other people visiting the hotel. The rooms are adequate but nothing special. The AC is a wall-unit which is quite loud. People are allowed to bring their pets so you may end up hearing the dog barking in the next room as I did. The exercise room is also very small (one bike, one treadmill, one cross-trainer). Fortunately not too many people seem to use it.

Room Tip: Get there as close to check-in time as you can or travel during the week.
