My husband and I recently stayed at the HIE for one night. The rooms seemed to be newly refurbished. The hotel location was convenient to Blowing Rock and several restaurants. The hotel did not have balconies like the one in Boone but overall was probably a little nicer. The breakfast was the standard HIE breakfast.

We took our granddaughter to Tweetsie Railroad and found this hotel to be a perfect overnight respite. The staff were friendly and helpful when we checked in. The room was clean, comfortable, and large enough for an 8 year old to "exercise." The indoor pool was clean and large enough for several families to enjoy at the same time. The hotel has partnered with some restaurants in Blowing Rock who offer a 10% discount and we found the Woodlands BBQ place next door (walking distance) to be a perfect casual family spot for dinner. The breakfast bar was pretty comprehensive with eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and the usual assortment of pastries, fruits, cereals, and yogurt, and there was plenty of room in the eating area and lobby.

This is not a romantic mountain hotel with a great scenic view, but we'll go back to this place again when we need a quick and cost-effective overnight!

I was studying in Boone for the summer and my husband wanted to come out and visit me with the dogs. The Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock was great. The staff was friendly, they gave us a room right near an exit so we could easily take the dogs outside, and the room was clean. The beds were very comfortable, as well.

The toilet wasn't working when we first arrived, and we contacted the front desk and two men were fixing the problem within minutes. Great service.

This hotel isn't located in the heart of Blowing Rock, but it's a great place to stay if you have dogs, and it's an easy two minute drive into the historic Blowing Rock area.

My wife and I and another couple stayed here for 3 nights during a visit to the area. We really have no complaints. The rooms and common areas were clean, the rooms were comfortable, the complementary breakfast was more than adequate, the location was convenient, and the price represented a good value. I'd like to make special mention of the fact that on one day, my wife and her friend needed transportation to a location about a mile away, and the manager went well above and beyond the call of duty by driving them there personally. Impressive!
