My husband and I arrived at this Holiday Express in Wilkesboro exhausted and looking forward to a clean room & hot shower. Unfortunately, the reservations we had made by phone with the centralized Sister-hotel system had not been transmitted to the Holiday Express. Lucky for us, Joyce was at the front desk and with many phone calls back and forth...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Wilkesboro on 10 Oct 14. They are remodeling the hotel, however the room/hotel was very clean and a great value for the money! They have a wonderful breakfast and the staff is very nice. I will stay here again for sure!

I have been staying at this hotel for probably ten years. I've been coming to Wilkesboro for 20. This hotel is ALWAYS clean, ALWAYS comfortable, and the stay is ALWAYS helpful and nice. Did I say always enough? The only place that beats this hotel is a rental house with a big family for twice the price. That's it! The...

This is a fairly typical holiday inn.... Building is old, has been remodeled but can't hide the 'ugly bones'. As in, the mildew smell, stained curtain, and an ottoman that is plain ol' ratty w the cuts.... ugh.

This is consistently a great place to stay. Claire, the manager, and her staff are super and made our stay very pleasant. The breakfast bar is amazing, well stocked, and refreshed frequently. The hotel rooms and meeting rooms are excellent, bathroom facilities always spotless. Last but not least, the homemade cookies at the front desk are the killer.
