My family really enjoy this humble but cozy hotel. the pool was fine,
super clean rooms, the front desk people very friendly ... and maybe the price was right
had a lovely Christmas and I'm sure we will return soon

We stayed here on a New Years trip to the mountains. The room was very clean and well appointed. Bedding was comfy and warm. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The indoor pool was warm and clean. The breakfast selection was decent and well stocked. Overall I highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Clean, friendly hotel. Very close to shopping district in Blowing Rock. Convenient to all restaurants. Good value. Visited on Dec. 3 for annual visit and Christmas Tree cutting. Would recommend this for anyone, including families with children.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock, NC. We are recently married and as our first year as a married couple one of our family traditions will be to travel to the Blowing Rock area to cut our Christmas Tree. This property was the perfect place to stay. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, engaging in conversation and helpful with all our needs from the front desk to housekeeping. The property was very clean and the room especially comfortable. I would recommend that anyone visiting the area use this hotel as a base of operations. Thank you to all the staff!

We liked our room, it was nice and clean. However breakfast was really awful. They did not serve real eggs, instead they served powdered eggs which were inedible and just gross. Also, no breakfast meat either.
We paid $141 (and that was with our AAA discount) for the night and for that price they should serve real eggs and some breakfast meat as well. We have stayed at other hotels comparable to this one and they always served a good breakfast with real food. We were disappointed so I don't think we will stay there again unless they change their breakfast menu.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I apologize that you did not like the breakfast. We serve the breakfast that is required by all Holiday Inn express propertiesand most limited service hotels do offer much less on their breakfast barthan we do. We do serve a meat everyday. The meats rotate from bacon, ham, and sauage . We also offer, cereal, toast, muffins,bagels,oatmeal, yogurt , fruit and pancakes made to order. Normally we get lots of get reviews on the breakfast. Our goal is to make sure all the guest enjoy their stay and I apologize that we did not meet your expectations.
Thanks again for staying with us, we truly appreciate it.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock for a few days to enjoy the fall foliage. The price was excellent but when we saw the road construction out front we were nervous. Don’t let it stop you from staying here. There was no road noise and we were in a front room over looking the work. The rooms were good sized, clean and very comfortable. The bed was loaded with pillows marked “soft” or “firm” so we could easily select our preference. Breakfast surpassed our expectation. It was more generous than the usual continental breakfast with eggs, bacon, pancakes and much more. The gal working the breakfast was diligent in keeping selections available without letting it get cold. The staff was all friendly and professional. The location was good to downtown and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We will return and recommend this location without hesitation.

Room Tip: If nervous about road noise, ask for a room overlooking the back parking lot.
