Holiday Inn Express in Wilkesboro
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Wilkesboro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for one night recently. Although the hotel was full (no room at the inn), it never felt crowded. We had no trouble finding space at the ample breakfast offered the next morning. My one complaint was also a thumbs-up: there was a fridge/microwave unit in room that I really liked, but the hum of the unit was annoying during the night. The bathroom was spotless and well maintained. I believe this hotel was remodeled a few years back and it shows. Friendly staff make for a nice stay - I will stay here next time I am in this part of the woods.

Room Tip: best value in N. Wilkesboro

Wonderful experience again. I've stayed here for over 20 years when on business. GM Clara is a hands on manager, does everything that she expects her staff to do. Thanks again for a wonderful stay. The hot breakfast was very good, varied from day to day.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally quiet, an upper floor may be a little more quiet.

Once in a while you find a hotel that goes over and above to make you welcome and move mountains to get you in when they are full! From the manager to reception to all the staff the feeling here is that you are a very welcome guest. I cannot say enough to highly recommend this hotel to anyone in this area. The rooms are clean, modern and wonderful. The hot breakfast with omlettes, bacon etc are all the right things to get you ready for a busy day! Thank you Clara (manager) for a great job!

After spending a full day at New River State Park and needing a place for the night, I chose this hotel. It was very roomy, inviting and clean and the staff made me feel like they were there just for my stay. The bed was quite comfortable, including a good choice of pillows. Breakfast was very satisfying, which added just the right touch to make this a place to remember the next time I need to spend a night in Wilkesboro.

The Holiday Inn Express is a couple of miles from the historic downtown Wilkesboro. There are some big-box stores and chain restaurants nearby, so it's not an isolated freeway stop.

Our reception was friendly and efficient. Our room was sufficient for the king-sized bed. All the furniture was in good shape and the place was clean. The mattress was comfortable and the linens clean. The pillows were a bit tired, however. The bathroom was clean and the towels were plentiful and clean. Our room was quiet when the air conditioner wasn't running; fortunately, it did not turn on much during the night. The room had a refrigerator. The closet space was small and could have used a few more hangers. The free wireless internet connection was sometimes slow. The breakfast was adequate but not exciting. The woman managing it did keep it well stocked and clean.

Because I got a good night's sleep, I would have called this place very good except for a lot of minor things: There was a small amount of mold in the bathtub. The carpet had a few small stains. The toilet seat was loose. The light switch and fan switch in the bathroom were (in my opinion) reversed from where they should be. Finally, on our last day after taking my luggage to the car I could not re-enter the back door because my key access had been turned off - it was like they were anxious for me to leave. The most egregious problem we had was the lack of hot water when I went to take a shower one evening. Each of these was a small matter, but altogether they detracted from our stay.

We were in the town for our nephew's graduation. The staff was friendly and offerred congratulations; they also provided info on the best way to get to the college as well as other local sites. The room was lovely and the breakfast was great. The warm cookies were a real treat on our arrival after a long day of driving. When we first got there, all the cookies were gone but the registration clerk made the extra effort and we were soon enjoying some with coffee. The housekeeping staff never failed to greet us in the hallway and cleaned our room at our convenience. Lovely lobby and nice business office if you don't have your laptop with you. Plenty of chain restaurants close by as well as familiar stores for any necessities or just shopping.

Staff friendly. Weird, tacky fake waterscape in lobby. Room decor fairly contemporary, new, clean.

Mold/mildew in grout and caulking areas in shower/tub...seemed like bleach couldve easily removed these stained areas....kinda gross and even worse at base where tub met tile floor.

Mildewy, funky smell upon entering room...cranked up heat long enough for burnt lent smell to mask mildew smell...turned ac on and smell tolerable.

Breakfast area packed at 8 am on Saturday morn....breakfast hostess couldnt keep up with stocking eggs and bacon...but nice that eggs and bacon offered along with signature cinnamon rolls and pancake machine. Free us today papers available.

Bed comfy...ample amount of pillows. However, I am light sleeper and hum of mini fridge was a bit loud so I never really slept.

Internet reception for ipad not great, kept getting bumped off.

Ask where to park to best reach room.

Can tell rooms have recently been remodeled and updated....has a Hampton Inn feel and decor.

Convenient to restaurants...major chains + local.
