Reviewed 14 August 2013

I stayed in this hotel on a golf trip to Boone and Blowing Rock. The location was excellent and close to all shopping restaurants, attractions, and a short distance to Blowing Rock. The Front desk associate who checked us in was by far the best I have ever encountered. She was 5 star trained. The hotel itself was fine for what we needed. There were a few small areas that needed improvement. The mattresses desperately needed to be replaced in my room. The lamp on the desk had no working light bulbs. The lamp on the night stand had one working light bulb. The carpeting could have used a good cleaning. The drapes had water stains on the bottom. I was surprised to find no refrigerator in the room, but we had a cooler, so no big deal for us. The bathroom was very nice and big, clean, and updated, and the shower was great. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate. This location offered us everything we were looking for. I would stay there again. If you are looking for a more serene mountain location, this is not a good choice. It is located in a highly congested area, but very accessible to everything in Boone.

Room Tip: all rooms we had on different floors were quiet

We've taken the grand children up to the Boone area twice now and have stayed at the Holliday Inn Express both times. I believe it has been renovated between the 2 times as we had new carpeting in our room this time. This time, Aug 2013, we had a nice roomy room w/ a balcony. The balcony is very narrow and has no chairs, but we had a great view from it. Our room had a refrigerator & microwave, but we requested them ahead of time. The bathroom was nice and roomy & clean. There is another sink outside of the bathroom for convenience. The beds were comfy, though not as comfy as my own Sleep Number Bed at home :) , and the comforter was "double-sheeted". There was an ample breakfast every morning, altough I wish they had more of a variety day after day in the hot food. The one thing I would change is: I wish the pool was either heated or indoors. Even in Aug. the pool water was very cold. The staff and houskeepers were all very kind and helpful with any request we had. The location is ideal for Tweetsie and/or Blowing Rock, restaurants, shopping and a wonderful view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room w/ a view. Some don't have as good a view. If you want micro & refr, ask f...

Recently stayed at this hotel during a visit to Boone, NC which is really a college town. Very impressed with the location and size of the building. My first encounter of unusual service was the front desk and check in which was handled very nicely by Olga and Tiffany. Got an upgraded room and had a nice Breakfast before leaving on Sunday.

Our youth group stopped here with 32 people. The staff was great letting us get pizza and eat in their breakfast area. There is a nice secluded lobby and an indoor pool that the kids enjoyed. The beds were fairly comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was great.

After having a misunderstanding about the type of room we reserved from another hotel chain, we cancelled that reservation and booked last minute with HIE. It was outstanding. The front desk service was some of the nicest, helpful, friendly employees we have ever encountered. And we have stayed in a lot of hotels all over the world. They answered every question, offered suggestions, provided a map with all the restaurants and sites to see in the Boone area. After eating breakfast at a nearby restaurant and spending too much money, we were pleased that the complimentary breakfast at HIE was just as good! I can't say enough about this hotel and their staff. We will not stay anywhere else on our future trips to Boone, NC. Rooms were very clean, spacious as well as the large bathrooms. Having two queens in a room is very nice for adults sharing a room. Hats off to a great place.

Room Tip: We had a wonderful view from the balcony.

This was supposed to be a one day trip but turned out to be a 2 day trip, we had nothing with us except the clothes we were wearing. Front desk manager helped us out, he gave us toothbrushes, toothpaste, deoderant etc. I have stayed at really fancy hotels and they charge you for a toothbrush in case you have forgot it. HIE did not. Room was large and clean, lots of space, breakfast fine with a pretty good variation. Price was decent for us that walked in.
