“served its purpose”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2011

This place was conveniently located & easy to find but the rooms were not what we asked for exactly. Given the amount of money we paid, I was very disappointed in the rooms. You could hear people having conversations in the next room. TVs could be heard across the room. The "free" breakfast was not the best that we have found in other HI Express hotels. The housekeeper for our rooms was not very nice, we never asked for anything except to not clean our rooms first thing in the morning. As I said, it served its purpose but we will find another place to stay next time.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2010

The hotel is in a very central location to any of the ski areas in the Boone area!

Restaurants of all kinds, Walgreens, Walmart and Lowes... all within walking distance... The front staff were very courteous and professional- no matter what time of the day. As crowded as the hotel was (the area had just received 10" of new snow the day before and EVERYONE was coming to ski!), they never veered from the professional and courteous customer-centric manners that I've come to expect from the HI brand! The cleaning staff in the hallways were always VERY polite and friendly... and they left our room spotless each day when we returned after a long day in the snow.

Hot showers, crisp triple-sheeted beds, quiet and efficient ac/heat units and fresh smelling rooms... what more could you need?

The breakfast area was overrun with a HUGE group of people that had little regard for manners or cleanliness, and to say they were rude to the breakfast staff would be an understatement. But as were the other staff, the breakfast servers took it in stride and kept the buffet items full and the counters clean! They had far more self-control than I would have given the way they were spoken to!

All in all, a flawless trip to Boone, thanks to HI Express! Keep up the good work!

This was our first trip to Boone, NC. Just passing through for a one night stay. Boone is a small, college town with many unexpected nice restaurants, mall, and an excellent Holiday Inn Express. Quiet, clean, WONDERFUL beds!. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best we've experienced. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend and will stay here again when in the area.

Spent a long weekend here and was very pleased with the HI Express. The location is excellent and the hotel is very up to date and nice. Rooms were as expected and they even fulfilled my request of a high level room near the elevator. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and nice. The breakfast was better than a normal continental breakfast, eggs, bacon, sausage and the normal cereal, breads and pastries. Good choice for a good price at a great location.

Spent just one night, but the experience was good. Staff were helpful and polite, rooms clean and in good condition. The location made it perfect for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway down to Asheville.

I've lost count of the number of years we've stayed here when we visit Tweetsie for Ghost Train. As usual, our stay was fantastic! The staff is very helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. The beds are fantastic! The breakfast is very good... We love this place!

My only negative was that there was only one person refilling the breakfast foods, and they couldn't keep up. We never got any of the breakfast meats because they ran out as soon as they put them out, and it took a long time to bring out more. We also had trouble finding somewhere to sit. I stood until someone offered me a chair. BUT - as we were leaving the breakfast area we noticed an "overflow" seating room. There were TONS of empty tables in there but not many people. A sign in the food area would have helped tremendously. We'll sit there next year, because we will DEFINITELY be back!!!!!

While traveling through the mountains, we used this cite to find a hotel in Boone. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was large and clean, it just had somewhat of a musty smell to it. The breakfast was most tasty.
