This was my first time at this particular HIE. The location is incredibly convenient for anything you would want to do in Boone, Blowing Rock, or any nearby area. There is immediate access to 221, 321, and 421. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had friends staying in the hotel the same night, and the front desk employee was really nice about finding us a room near our friends.
The hotel is well-loved, and maybe ready for a little freshening up: normally the mattresses are my favorite part of Holiday Inn Express hotels, but the ones in our room were pretty saggy. The woven straps on the bench in the room were really stretched out, to the point that we did not sit on it. There is no fitness center in the hotel- staying in the hotel gets you access to a local fitness center, and it was in rough shape. The fitness center was not particularly clean or well-maintained, though that's not part of the hotel itself.
The hotel was incredibly clean and kept up, the breakfast was great, and our bathroom was ENORMOUS. It was the biggest bathroom I've ever had in a HIE.
We will stay here again next time we're in Boone.More
