We recently were looking for a new house and didnt know the area. We noticed that Holiday Express was newer and the price was reasonable. We were very happy when we got a King bed on first floor with SHORT notice. The staff went out of their way to please. The room was good size and CLEAN. We stayed several...

Room, bathroom - relatively clean, but smelled like a hospital. Very noisy AC. Breakfast was inedible. Bread was frozen and toaster was not working. Juice was so watered down, only had a color. There was a long line for pancakes, but we couldn't eat them. Even fruit (apples) were inedible. How can you mess up the apples? Do not recommend...

This newer hotel is conveniently located to shopping and a variety of restaurants - and not a bad drive to Boone. Our first floor room was very spacious,clean and comfortable.The staff were friendly. If you're interested in eating breakfast late, this is one of the few places that serves their continental breakfast until noon. I also like the standard later...

The decor was stark and blindingly lit with weird LED lighting, long winding halls, but the reception was very friendly and professional. The room was clean. I was on my way to Asheville from Raleigh and this was a good halfway point, but it was very basic, and seemed to be expensive for what you get.

This is a modern and clean hotel with easy access to all major freeways. It is quiet though. A big shopping mall is close by as well as many places to eat. Breakfast is included and - as always at Holiday Inn Express - good and plentiful. I would stay here again.

Recently refurbished?? Holiday Inn next door to the Furniture Mart. Stayed two nights. Very clean and well kept. Would recommend. We found it hard to find somewhere good to eat nearby. We were looking for local fare-BBQ!! Have to drive a bit to find some.

Very nice hotel with the best breakfast we have ever had in any hotel. Beds are comfortable, staff is courteous. Just had a walk in shower, no bath tub, but that was no problem for us. The room had a fridge and a microwave too! Great stay.

One of my biggest fears when going to a hotel is the "unknown" - will the room be clean and will the bed & sheets be comfortable. Beyond that I'm pretty simple - I just want good customer service and a clean place to stay without feeling like I'm robbing the bank to do so. PRO I was surpised to...
