I have always considered that Holiday Inn "Express" hotels are likely to be at the cheap end of the Holiday Inn chain, and would therefore be rather more basic in terms of rooms etc. Certainly as far as this hotel is concerned I was wrong. Our room was a good size, well furnished and very comfortable. The public areas are also well furnished and the hotel also has a pool.
The front desk staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. A complementary breakfast is supplied, which included eggs, sausage, pancakes cereals, fruit, toast etc. It was all perfectly adequate and my only criticism is that the dining room is rather small, so it can be difficult to get a seat. While we were there it was very busy and I must compliment the young lady who was running the place. She worked incredibly hard to keep the various items restocked and did so with good grace and humour.
The hotel is not actually in the centre of Blowing Rock, so if you want to walk into town it will take you about 30 minutes. Ask at the desk and they will give you directions that will take you through pleasant, residential back streets.
