“Good”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

One of the more affordable hotels in Blowing Rock, it is a good place to stopover if you are driving through the Blue Ridge Parkway. Free breakfast and WiFi is provided, room was spacious for 4 of us, and all necessary amenities were provided.

This hotel was what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Although it appeared to be a newish hotel, there were some signs that no one is looking at the details. Most disturbing were the several black patches on the bathroom ceiling that appeared to be mold. Our room was on the lower level had a view of a tall stone wall that supported the front part of the hotel. There were some leftover shingles and a couple of ladders lying in that area.

The lobby has a large seating area which was fortunate because the breakfast room was packed to overflowing. We ended up eating breakfast in the lobby.

The staff was friendly and made some helpful recommendations as to places to eat supper. The barbecue restaurant next door was one recommendation and the food there was plentiful and very good.

The location is good with the town of Blowing Rock just around the corner and the bigger city of Boone with its Wal*Mart, KMart, Walgreen's, etc. about 10 minutes away. The highway construction is a slight pain, but that will be over soon.

Room Tip: The lower level makes for easy unloading and loading, but your choice is a view of the parking lot o...

Thank you o much for your review of our hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the staff was very helpful. I apologize for the shingles and the ladders on the side walk. We had some storm damage and the roofing company had not completed the job during your stay and had left there ladders and had not finished the clean up from the repairs. We value your feedback and we hope to see you again soon.

This has not been our first stay at this hotel although it has been a couple of years. The room was very clean, comfortable beds and loved the linens. The downfall of the room is the A/C. It comes on and off all night and sounds like an airplane.

This has become our home-away-from-home when in Blowing Rock. Large rooms and the best breakfast of our travels. The Manager is always eager to please and it shows with the enthusiasm of the staff. Close to everything, though now in walking distance. Be aware that there is road construction, but you don't hear a thing in the rooms.

Room Tip: They're all good!!!

Clean and economical. Two doors down from an Outback Steakhouse. We spent a restful night here after driving 290 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The parkway is reason enough to visit Blowing Rock. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Greeted upon arrival by friendly staff who are not rushed and focused on you! The property is a bit lacking, main road literally out the front door, no outside property use to speak of. The hotel picture suggests a cabin type hotel in the mountains. Not so. With that said, if you are looking for fabulous customer service, great accommodations, and a breakfast that can not be beat, this hotel is for you! Great family or business option with amenities to meet the average travelers needs. Yes, I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night during our two day trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The reception desk was very helpful recommending places to eat. The room was huge, very clean and very nice. The view outside was also amazing! Will stay here again if in the area!
