Holiday Inn Express Blowing Rock South
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Blowing Rock
Reviewed 18 August 2011

Hotel was nice and a good price for the area. Free breakfast was pretty standard, but always good when travelling with children. Fitness center didn't have much, but there is a very nice area around Bass Lake to go walk or run that is a 5 minute drive. Not much in walking distance because roads are very curvy and have no shoulder to walk on. So you have to drive to town, and I see this being a problem during busy times because parking was a mess. Lots of restaurants nearby, and the Canyons just up the road had a great patio with nice view. Pizza at Mellow Mushroom in town was also great.

I appreciate you taking the time to review your most recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock, NC. I wanted to let you know that Blowing Rock is opening a new Parking Deck on October 1st. That will give us 2 Parking Decks that are just off Main Street. That will be a great addition to the Downtown area for our guests. Mellow Mushroom is one of my favorites places for Pizza. I am so happy that you had a great stay and consider our hotel a "Great Value". We look forward to having you back at our hotel. Sincerely, Ben McKethan General Manager

We (my Brother and I) just got back from a trip to the Blowing Rock/Grandfather Mountain area. We stayed overnight in Blowing Rock at the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing rock. When we got there the people at the front desk greeted us as we walked in. They were very nice. We got our key cards and went to our room. We were pleased to see a clean room. We got a room with two queen beds. The beds were comfy and clean. The room had a fridge and microwave along with a little coffee maker. The bathroom was Clean as well with modern decor and a hair drier. Plenty of towls and soap too. The a/c in the room worked great and was quite. We watched Blade Runner with Harrsion Ford on the HD flat screen TV and then quickly feel asleep. We checked out early because we wanted to get a good jump on the day. We left with a very good impression of the hotel and would stay there again!!! The hotel is close to many places to eat too and not far from anything. A really good all around spot. To sum it up a nice place to stay for a fair price. Would stay there again.

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!
