Recommended by the owner of Hidden Valley Motel. This motel is located in Blowing Rock. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. They communicated through email with me and helped set up a one night stay. They were able to make things accessible since I was in crutches. The room was clean and reminded me of staying at grandma and... More

We stayed in room#14. Booked a room with two queen size beds but was informed that there were maint. issues and they would offer us a queen size bed and pull out sofa. The pull out sofa was actually a fouton that was not made for sleeping on. The room smelled very musty and we constantly sprayed fabreeze to try... More

Do you want to be right downtown? Do you want elegant amenities and super deluxe linens? Do you want a minimum night stay forced upon you? If you answered YES to any of these, get out a map and pick another hotel. Oh, and be prepared to pay twice as much. If, on the other hand, you want a location... More

Although this motel is older, it was very clean and well maintained. We stayed in room 14 and had our own private parking space. The pool was clean and never crowded. There were picnic tables and a charcoal grill for use that was kept clean. We asked for a refrigerator and on the 2nd day they opened up a full... More

I took my grandsons to Grandfather Mountain and we stayed at the Alpens Acres Motel. It was an old motel, but it was clean. Had nice, fluffy towels and the room was cleaned everyday. The landscaping was beautiful. My grandsons really enjoyed the pool after a day of climbing Grandfather Mountain and riding the Tweetsie Railroad.

The Alpen Acres is an old-fashioned style roadside motel. No frills. If you stopped for the night and only parked out front, then you would miss the best part of the place. We went at rather the last minute, on the weekend when the Scottish Highland Games were taking place on Grandfather Mountain. The places where we usually stay in... More

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.
