We were able to book this hotel for much less than anything else in the area so we couldn't pass it up. The first night was $62 but second night was $89 (friday's are considered weekends). It is located just a quick 2 minute drive to Historic Blowing Rock but not a walkable area as the hotel sits on the main road with lots of traffic.
Check in was easy and quick we arrived around 4pm. The room is a typical holiday inn decorated room. Good bed and I liked the soft and firm options for pillows on the bed (2 of each). Good sized bathroom with decent water pressure. We really liked that the room had a small refrigerator and microwave.
They offer free Wi-fi so that is always a plus. The breakfast was good. The options were eggs, sausage, gravy and biscuits as well as bagels, toast, english muffins etc.
One thing we were not impressed with was the pool. Not very large, indoors and no hot tub in the hotel.
All in all for the price we paid this was a great choice. There are other wonderful places to stay in the area but you will pay a much higher price for those. If price was no object I would recommend but if you travel on a budget this hotel is a great choice.
Short drive to Historic Downtown Blowing Rock
