Breakfast was good. A large indoor pool which was rather tired looking and needed some decoration. It is built on a... More

We had a quick overnight stay here. I was a little worried when I made the reservation as it is below street level and lots of road construction outside. But it was fine. The rooms were average but okay. No one had dusted the furniture in a while I wouldn't want to stay here more than one night.

We stayed here for a two day trip to Tweetsie Railroad. I was quite surprised with our stay at Holiday Inn Express. The room was spacious. The hotel does need a update, but for the value compared to other places to stay in the area, this is the best deal around especially the way it makes my kids happy that... More

We usually stay here when we travel the Parkway. We love Blowing Rock and this hotel is reasonable and offer a good breakfast. I do think they need to replace their mattresses or at least the last one I had. There is road construction in front of the hotel but not a very big problem. Good restaurants very near by.... More

Going for a 4th of July weekend getaway so decided to stay right of the Blue Ridge Parkway at the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock, NC. Nice place, walking distance to Foggy Rock eatery and pub. Super friendly staff. Very clean rooms. Looking forward to taking a walk and having lunch.

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express with a decent breakfast offering a variety of choices. Its close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and a short walk from an authentic local bar-b-que place. The road in front is under construction so there a slight delays getting into the hotel, and back out again. But it looks like its almost complete.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, and we chose to leave because they did not have a washer dryer The hotel was clean however I needed some updating. The service was mediocre. Is decently priced for the area. This is a good place to stay for family. The fitness area is not good at all!

My first time at a HIE, not many amenities, very small lobby area (we could not use at all because it was always full). The rooms were just ok nothing special. I would possibly stay again if I were in the area.

In my opinion, Holiday Inn Express should remove their good name from this place. The motel is located on a hillside, lobby is 1/2 floor above the 1st floor, and 1/2 floor below the 2nd floor of the motel. It does not look like a usual HIE, rather, it looks like at least a 25+ year old generic motel. Our... More
