Road construction caused us to pass the entrance to the hotel but once there we were very pleased with the accomodations. It is so close to Tweetsie and other attractions. If you travel with children, request a room close to the indoor pool.

Other than some road construction on HWY 321, the area was nice and clean. Good access and very good value for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jon12345 I slept good but it was because i was tired..
Bathrooms need to be ventilated, ceiling plaster was falling down due to the moisture. Breakfast was horrible, eggs were powdery. Do something well or just don't do it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnM180 Overnight Stay
Check in was okay. First time EVER, I've been asked how many were staying in the room (is that an issue for them). Room was nice. Basic, two queens. Sheets were warn fairly well. Pillows were great. Two each, of firm and soft. Slept really well.
Odd thing. Bathroom looked to be recently renovated.
Vanity height seemed a bit low.
Shower was really great. Big shower head, and great water pressure.
Now for the engineering flaw of the decade.....(Room 311)
You can't put up the seat on the toilet, without it falling back down!
There is a really nice shelf (part of the counter top) that extends over the toilet.
The toilet is under the shelf. The location of the toilet, and the shelf,
keeps the toilet seat from standing up far enough to stay up on it's own.
If a guy wants to be polite, and lift the seat while......."using it".
He has to hold the seat with one hand, and, he's only got one hand left.......
Other than the inconvenience in the bathroom, really liked the hotel.
Mid week stay, plenty of parking. Never waited more than a minute for an elevator.
Price was right. I'd go back.
Some gal from the hotel called this morning. Didn't leave name, or call back number.
My daughter took the message as I wasn't home. Called to inform me that she only asked how many were in the room for security reasons. In case of a fire maybe.
She didn't seem concerned with the toilet issues. Shame on her.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bashful Enjoyable stay
Our stay was delightful except the heating and air unit was quite loud when it turned on. Also, the temperature was inconsistent making sleep difficult as we would become hot and cold throughout the night. Other than that, not complaints. Would recommend highly.

Thought the hotel was nice, even though it was a little expensive, room seemed updated, somewhat spacious for a basic room. Breakfast was hot and fresh and had a good variety, the area was very crowded though. Overall I would stay there any time I'm in the area.

breakfast you give the family..Also the swimming area they love to come back to the hotel to swim after the day out. Thanks for everything. Lisa & Family

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 4 years while at the Blowing Rock Charity Horse Show. It is nice and clean. In all truthfulness, the hotel is beginning to age a bit and needs some updating as do all properties. The breakfast is good but you can get the same breakfast at any Holiday Inn Express. If you are staying long term the lack of variety begins to mount. The only real negative that I have is that the pool area NEEDS better lighting.
We appreciate the staff of this property and would definitely stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chif1 Good overall experience
There is a special place in Hades for the person who designed the bathroom. The countertop extends over the toilet so that the toilet seat will not stay up with out holding it.
It would also be nice to have a comfortable chair to sit in to read or watch TV.
With those exceptions, the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet. The price was good and the beds were comfortable.

Not as nice as I expected from Holiday Inn. It just seemed run down to me. The staff really could care less and don't have the nicest manners. The beds were hard and the ac, as it cycles, is either really cold or you feel warm.
The rooms are clean as are the baths ect...and I love the fact they use Bath and Body Works products. Things just seemed very used---we booked 3 rooms that night.
Breakfast was better then some hotels and was a bit more then the basic pastry items.
Internet was not great so I used my own wireless as their internet was SLOWWWWW......
The area is nice, but a tad hard to find turn in to Holiday Inn...although to be fair there is road construction there, but they are not really lit up or anything to see the turn on a dark road!
Just not impressed and if I was staying in the area I would look at other accommodations. Although, had the staff gone out of their way and we really courteous and acted if they cared many things could be overlooked!
Oh, I requested ground floor and was put on top floor. I know that nothing is guaranteed, but almost ALL hotels I have stayed out do go out of the way to make that happen and work very hard to accommodate you!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill 27803 Very comfortable room with super service from everyone employed there.
My wife and I like to go to the Blowing Rock/Boone, NC area 2 or 3 times per year for a quiet getaway. The previous place where we had stayed for probably 30 years had just really gone downhill, both in quality of rooms and also service. We were referred to the Holiday Inn Express in Blowing Rock by a friend and we decided to check it out for 4 days. It more than met our hopes and expectations.
The staff went out of their way to meet our every need. Bottom line, we have found a new "home" away from home. We cannot wait to go back. Fantastic stay.

Had a difficult time finding the motel. Toilet located too close to shelf above it; gentlemen must hold lid up with left hand while aiming with the right hand.. Bed was too hard for my wife. Greasy bacon and artificial eggs not very appetizing. Rachel in lobby was very helpful. Room very quiet. Coffee to start each day was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blowing Rock Visitor Great staff, great breakfast
The staff at this hotel is wonderful. From the time we arrived until we left they always greeted us as we came in the door and treated our entire party with friendliness and respect.
The breakfast choices were exceptional. I expected some sort of eggs and a variety of pastry, but this location went above and beyond. On one of our days the breakfast included scrambled eggs, sliced ham, sausage gravy and biscuits, pancakes, cold cereals, pastries, fresh fruit, greek yogurt and MORE. It was wonderful. There is plenty of seating in the breakfast area and the breakfast staff greeted everyone and spoke with many of the guests.
I highly recommend the Blowing Rock Holiday Inn Express. It was awesome!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scooter48 Acceptable Hotel
The hotel was nice, friendly staff, breakfast buffet as advertised and overall clean. Our only complaint is related to the Fitness Facility. This is always one of our main criteria when making a hotel choice and the website advertised (with picture) a nice fitness facility with a weight machine and several pieces of cardio. The actual facility had no weight machine, 2 broken ellipticals so neither could be used and 1 bike and 1 treadmill. The bike and treadmill were acceptable but definitely old and not well taken care of. There were no cleansing wipes to clean the equipment prior to use. I would have preferred to make my decision based on an honest description/picture of the fitness facility vs. thinking it met our needs and didn't. We wouldn't stay at this specific location again due to this reason but the rest of the hotel was acceptable.
