“One night stay”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Stayed here on Monday July 2. The hotel was full. The rooms were nice and clean. We were on the second floor and the doors opened to the hallway. The room was similar to Hampton Inns that I've stayed at in the past. The breakfast was good also with a good selection - cereal, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, pastries, pancakes, bagels and English muffins.

The downside was the pool and the towels in the room. The pool was small and crowded. We only stayed about 20 minutes before we left. When we got back to get showers, there were only three towels in a room with four people. Guest services said that they would not have more clean towels until 9:00 the next morning.

Other than that the stay was nice and quiet. I paid $94 including all taxes.

Needed an overnight stay before starting on the Blueridge Parkway. Nice little hotel close to shopping areas and attractions (able to buy Grandfather Mountain tickets at the desk). Easy check in, helpful staff, very clean and big rooms. Requested king size bed with pull out couch for the extra room since travel with 2 teenagers who like 2 inflatable double matresses instead of sharing a room with small double beds for all of us.. Room was extra large in more of an L shape so their seating area/ living area was seperate from ours without paying the extra cost.
Free breakfast was hot with good variety. Friendly Staff. Since just staying overnight we decided to save the money over more expensive hotels in area. Very pleasantly surprised!

Room Tip: Ask for room away from highway. Big trucks traveling down highway be heard in the room but not cars...

Was here due to a wedding. Met and exceeded expectation for commerical property. It sits between the two road entrances to Main Street, town of Blowing Rock. Very close to Blue Ridge Parkway entrance - Boone a 10 minute drive. Very clean and I thought nicely appointed for chain property. Breakfast fine. Front desk staff very helpful. Good value.

We are typically B&B people and are adverse to staying in hotels/motels, but we were pleasantly surprised by the Holiday In Express in Blowing Rock. Our room was very large, very clean, and very accommodating (had small fridge and microwave, coffee maker, ironing board, hair dryer, etc). The staff were very friendly, and the free breakfast was great.

Reviewed 17 June 2012

Just stayed here last week. We booked a room based on reviews...one which said this was a new hotel-not exactly accurate. It may be a new Holiday Inn Express location...but the building itself was not new (seemed to just be remodeled in the lovely decor typical of H. Inn Express) thus the rooms were the smallest of any Holiday Inn Express locations I have stayed at (6 at this point)- for 3 people with 2 queen beds it felt pretty tight. We had nice firm beds, a micro and small fridge. Bathroom was very small, but nice. Lobby was nicely decorated as well as the breakfast area. Rooms were clean and quiet.

Location: on 321 by-pass convenient to downtown; the road is currently under construction so ask for a room facing back of hotel. We did this and could not hear the work going on to widen the road.


Biggest complaint: Pool area: looked all over and could not find a sign directing me to the pool. Pool area was older, dull & had nothing special or pretty about it; was small and had limited evening hours. It would have been nice to have adult hours after 9 PM...too small to swim with kids in pool- a bummer after looking forward to an evening swim and having to forgo it due to a pool full of children, sweet, but not when you want a quiet swim and want to swim...which there was no room to do. Recently stayed at a hotel with later hours reserved for adults only--great idea!

Overall...clean, quiet (on back side), nice decor, late checkout accommodation. Biggest negative was size of room and previously mentioned pool comments. Would stay here again other than these 2 issues.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on backside due to road construction in front of hotel.

The location was much more convenient to downtown than I expected. The breakfast was nice with plenty of seating room and someone who continually monitored to make sure nothing ran out. The rooms were great, and the bathroom was fine. The hotel was VERY clean, and the staff were very helpful. My only suggestion is that you not get hooked into the website suggestion that you pay in full ahead of time. The price dropped quite a bit after I did that. While I never had that occur with other chains, I will never book ahead again and pay in full ahead of time with Holiday Inn.

Unlike many Boone hotels bordered by multiple streets/shopping centers/parking lots/etc, this hotel sits alone off a bend in the road, and is surrounded by mountains. A peaceful retreat after shopping & dining in downtown Boone, about 10 mins away. The beds were comfortable. The continental breakfast was ample in variety. Our room was clean and the decor up-to-date. Rates were reasonable, and in line with similar hotels in Blowing Rock and Boone. My only complaint would be that the front desk was unmanned for several minutes when I attempted to checkout. When we checked in however, the clerk was friendly, energetic, perfect service.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view
