Although the motel was well worn, overall everything was great considering the large crowd we had. Staff was very accommodating and allowed us to enjoy downstairs with little restrictions as we gathered every night. Breakfast was wonderful and hospitality of staff was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy in Blowing Rock Great value
My husband and I recently took two teens to Blowing Rock for an over night. We had two connecting rooms. The rooms were clean and the bed and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom was clean and up to date with a lovely shower. If they had provided a shower cap it would have been nice. My granddaughter and friend used the pool and had a fun time. For me the pool room was too chilly, but they had a great time. They also used the gym facility and found it fine. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and better than any I've ever had while traveling. I would highly recommend this particular hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Nice room, fair price, breakfast was mediocre. Breakfast room was too small for the crowd.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonFM Construction Noise
It's not their fault, but the hotel is on a road undergoing major construction. The noise starts around 6:30 AM every morning. If you stay here, be sure to ask for a room away from the road.
Other than that, this was a quiet hotel with good service and a great breakfast. The staff handled my complex reservation (I used points, free night, and paid rooms) without any problems.
Indoor pool was fun, but there is no spa or hot tub.
The toilets are low-flow and don't work well. Ours was clogged within the first day.

Everything was brand new. It all even smelled new. The hotel was nice and we had a great stay. I would mention that the toilet seat would not come all the way up because the counter behind it was not cut out properly...kindof a punch list item in the final inspection that was never addressed.
Also, only one of the pieces of equipment in the workout room worked - there was a treadmill, an elliptical, and a stationary bike - Only the treadmill worked.
We loved the location (just down from The Blowing Rock) and the stay was pleasant.

Good location and value compared to HIE in Boone. Although you have 321 construction to deal with. Breakfast room was always too crowded to use. Didn't find the guest room to be too business friendly. More suited to tourists as there was no desk or desk chair...and no desk lamp and outlets were very sparse. But overall, it was a good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Momof2here For the price, it was fine
This hotel is a great value, but the breakfast choices were the same every morning and the room was not very clean. Our toilet leaked and was not repaired during our stay, so I had to put a towel on the floor to soak up the grossness. But it was quiet, dark, and the beds were comfortable. My kids enjoyed the pool though it could really use some repair and updating. I would stay here again as long as it wasn't in any worse shape than it was when we were here this time just for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cold sleeper HVAC not working
I reserved a room and when I got there (late at night) the AC didn't work. I asked if I could have another room, but they were sold out. The Hotel worker said the only other room that is available was a room with an odor to it, as the people whom had that room asked for another room due to the smell. So i decided to stay in my room 115. The staff member tried to get the unit to work and did, but said it would only work if you set the temperature at low at 60....so I spent the night in a very cold room that night. The AC units are also very loud kicking on and off through the night which would wake me up. Staff was great, room was clean, but so not the best place to stay due to the AC...maybe some of the other rooms are better. They did not comp me, I paid full price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlRck Very comfortable beds!
A salute to Blowing Rock HIExpress. Their beds are much, MUCH more comfortable than the Boone HIExpress. Different owners, but the Boone hotel needs to call the Blowing Rock one to find out what kind of mattress they have. The Blowing Rock hotel beds are vastly better than the Boone one.

This hotel was in a good location and had all the amenities that we needed for a one-night stay. There was quite a bit of construction on the road running past the hotel, but it didn't pose any problem at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandparents plus three Enjoyed our visit
We had two rooms-stayed three nights. It was nice trying to get all of us dressed at once with the extra room. Everyone was very friendly and helpful from check in to check out. The hotel was very busy so breakfast was packed the first two mornings. Front desk gave us ideas for dinner one night. Kids loved the pool in

This is a great location for seeing the sights of Blowing Rock. Unfortunately it rained while I was there so I did not get to see much but the hotel is comfortable and nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RinaK Helpful Front Desk Staff and Great Breakfast
Even though a short one night visit the hotel provided us with a comfortable atmosphere. The front desk staff was very helpful with a quick check in and in suggesting restaurants in the area. The room and its furnishings were quite clean and up to date, but the bathtubs were in need of some scrubbing and recaulking. There was a lack of internet service in both the room and public areas. Would not let that stop us from staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitty63 Incredible Breakfast
This was a nice clean facility with reasonable prices and comfortable rooms but the biggest amenity would have to be the breakfast. It was amazing and plentiful. I have never had such variety or quality at this type of hotel. You will not have to worry about starting your day hungry.

This was a great location for us to be able to get to the sites we wanted to see in Boone and Blowing Rock. The staff was great and very helpful. The indoor pool was a hit for my grand daughter. If there was nothing else but the pool I will be back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jen32 Ok for the price
The location was good, about 5 minutes from Tweetsie Railroad and about 10 minutes from downtown. Staff was polite and helpful. Room was average, nothing fancy. Cleanliness was good. Breakfast needs improvement, not many items to choose from and the items that were available were not tasty at all, when paying extra I expect to get something better than what they had.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by isJustMe It was nice, but...
It was nice, but there is no window to open and it is a small, that I could not get it out. I am not sure where you get the oxygen to breathe.
The AC was not working all the time, it was stopping a lot and was not able to cool down the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wildbill69 Best Mini Vacation Ever!!!
I was a little apprehensive because the price was so low. Our three day stay was perfect. The room was immaculate. It had everything we needed. We had a tasty breakfast every day, a nice workout in the gym and the heated indoor pool, We finished off the days dining at Best Cellars and Canyons. I will be back next year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marina28 Great Pillows, Reliable Hotel
My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary vacation in the mountains. We really liked the pillows and were able to sleep soundly in our guest room. The room offered cable TV, good air conditioning, the right amount of towels and great wireless internet. Breakfast was free and varied, although the pancake machine was out of batter when we got to the breakfast room. The hotel staff was helpful when we asked about local attractions, although there was one time I called the front desk and received no answer and had to wait a few minutes and call back later. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel to others looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay in the area.

We were visiting friends in Blowing Rock, so we only stayed one night. We were very pleased. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable. The only con was road construction which the hotel has no control over. Great Stay!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jim K Tired Facility in need of an Upgrade
For the cost of an overnight (c.175) this place was a great let down. The entire inside is dowdy, and the various shades of brown add to the gloom. It would be a great service to shut down for a month and do a serious overhaul and brighten things up. The "free" breakfast was mediocre - and included bananas that appeared to have been frozen and looked wretched. I have been a frequent guest at this type of inn and would not return to this one.
