I'm astonished at all these glowing reviews and wonder if we were at the same motel!!! Our room was dark, with an awful smell that never went away. An attempt to cover it up was a Febreze clip on the air conditioner. The lampshades had so much dust on them that if you brushed against one, the dust just showered... More

This hotel was great for little bit of time we spent in it. Clean and quite right in the middle of Boone and blowing rock was a great location. A bit on the dated side but we didn't mind. Great for a weekend getaway.

This is an "old style" motel. Budget friendly. No frills but very clean and convenient. Great pool and playground area. Free wi-fi was a plus. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to my friends.

Staff was extremely nice. Rooms were clean, outdated but nice. Disappointed with ice machine- small one in office and they put some in a cooler at door. Having Wi-Fi was nice. Overall it is a nice place, overpriced for what it is.

My daughter and I were going to the ASU Spring Tour last weekend. I really didn't have much money but it was an important thing to do for my daughter. I found Alpen Acres Motel and it was a great deal because it was less money than the other places that I was looking at to stay. It was comfortable,... More

The hotel is older and small, but fits the bill. You might consider it 'vintage' LOL. Very clean and the staff is friendly. Breakfast is a box of snacks in the office. It's on the corner at Ski Mtn Road so it's convenient to everything. Recommend!

Found the Alpen Acres Motel on the internet. It was on the main road and was quite comfy and convenient to good restaurants. It was a nice place to stop on our trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Blowing Rock, NC.

Stayed there for two nights and really enjoyed it- Small room and bath area, but a very comfortable queen bed...Very quiet and tranquil, and also nice that you can park right in front of your room door- takes seconds to get your luggage in the room...Wish there was just a little more drawer space, but that is a minor concern...Located...

When we are in the area we love to stay here. If you are looking for fancy , this is not your place. If you are looking for a peaceful, quite inn to stay in this is it. This place has that nostalgic charm of days gone by. We love it.

We stayed in room six and decided to get the kitchen with it. We were there visiting our daughter so I was able to cook for her. The extra kitchen space was made our stay even better. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. Yes i would stay again.
