“Very nice”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

In town for a college football weekend. First time in this area and I read previous reviews that this location was very close to Boone and cheaper than Boone so we went with it. It was close- maybe 10 minutes. On football weekends we normally do not spend a lot of time at hotels but when we get there we are tired and welcome a nice room. Nice clean hotel, quick/efficient check in, clean rooms, comfortable bed, and a very nice breakfast on Sunday morning before we started our travel back to Georgia. The breakfast area was busy, but the staff very attentive to keep area stocked and cleaned up. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

We recently returned from the Boone/Blowing Rock area. We based our visit at this hotel. We found our room to be clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff were very nice and attentive. Road construction in front of the hotel was our only inconvenience but we quickly learned how to avoid it.

My husband and I stayed here on our trip down the blue ridge parkway and we enjoyed this hotel. The room was clean with a nice comfy bed with a nice flat panel LG television. The hotel is about 2 miles or so from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled when driving to this hotel as it does not look like a typical Holiday Inn...it blends in with the area and has more of a "chalet" look to it - we almost passed it. The staff was friendly and welcoming when we checked in. Free breakfast is included a good variety - muffins, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, toast, eggs, biscuits& gravy, pancakes, and canadian bacon. The hotel is pretty close to a couple of restaurants, you can walk to them if you want. The downtown shops are close too, not walking distance close but a short drive away.

Room was clean, smelled nice and is convenient to several restaurants. Super close to town and the Blue Ridge Parkway which was a big bonus for us. Breakfast was well stocked each morning of our stay regardless of the time we visited. All employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. There is construction on the rod in front of the hotel right now which makes getting there trickier, but not a fault of the hotel. Only issue was the pool. It was cold. We have a five year old that after getting in even commented on the temperature. We made him get out after he started shivering. Because of this we didn't swim the rest of our stay which was quite a bummer. Met a maintenance worker in the elevator that asked about the pool water temp and after our son said it was cold the worker apologized so maybe this is a frequent problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back to be away from possible road noise.

Clean and modern hotel in Blowing Rock. Walking distance to 3-4 restaurants, but you will need to drive to get downtown to the shops on Main. Breakfast is standard continental offerings with a good variety. Beds and room were comfortable and quiet as well as clean. This is the only chain hotel in Blowing Rock, all others are motels and B&B's and some are closer in to Main St.

The hotel is about half way on Blue Ridge Parkway. The city is adorable and a must see. It is close to 2 BBQ restaurants. The hotel is right off the main road. Room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was good and more than just tools and cereal.

Stayed at this hotel this past week for one night. Holiday inn express have done a nice job of renovating this hotel. The room was much better than before, because we stayed there before, when it was days inn. The breakfast was rather good and helped to get us on our way.we had a nice stay and will probably stay there again .
