Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LucyLocket0813 Loved the accomodations
We really enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn Express; however, I was not impressed with the breakfast options. Other HIE that I've stayed in have offered a different variety, but this one did not. There were always eggs (either scrambled or an omelet# and sausage #mostly link of which I do not eat). The breakfast was suppose to stay out until 10 am, but most mornings it was all put away by 9:45. One morning we went to put our bags in the car and came back in to eat, but everything was gone and cleaned up. Other than the breakfast, the facility was great and very convenient for the activities we had planned around the Boone area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Carol100 Missing some comfort
We did enjoy our two night stay but were disappointed that the room did not have a refrigerator (I had medicine that needed to be refrigerated). We had to keep going to ice machine to keep a small cooler chilled. The phone did not work. I asked at the front desk about getting another room with a refrigerator but they could not accomodate because there were some Appalachian students staying there while their cottages were being completed. Also access to the parking lot was limited due to some paving between the hotel and Lowe's Home Improvement next door and they started very early. The beep beep of the trucks backing up was very annoying very early in the morning. Getting out of the parking lot was a bit hazardous with only one entrance in. Overall it was an average stay. We weren't looking for luxury but expected a little more than what we got.

I am a platinum elite of IHG Rewards-- this was not mentioned during check-in or any time during my stay-- no thank you, nothing. Most Holiday Inns will provide some snack or recognition of the membership. This hotel -- nothing.

The Holiday Inn Express is our favorite hotel in Boone. The staff is always friendly and helpful; the rooms are a great value, the cinamon rolls at breakfast are wonderful, and the location is tops. Plenty of things are within walking distance - restaurants, drug stores, and walking trails. It is laso very quiet in the room. You can't go wrong here.

I was looking for fresh fruit for breakfast. That's the only reason it didn't get excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeanBarb Clean and comfortable
Room was very clean and nicely updated. We appreciated--and used--the fridge in the room.
We only have two minor complaints (and these are very particular, because the overall experience was excellent), 1. breakfast choices were nothing special, and, in fact, were a little more limited than some other hotels in this pricerange (hotels should keep in mind that many patrons will not eat foods with artificial sweeteners) and 2. the shower curtain wouldn't stay up at the ends, so we spent our entire showers pushing it back to avoid flooding the floor. Clearly, the person who designed/installed the shower rod/curtain has never taken a shower there, as you can see the problem immediately--the rod needs a hook (or something) at each end so you can hook the curtain, otherwise, with the rounded shape of the rod, the curtain is going to slide to the middle and allow water to flood the floor--simple physics.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bubba20 OUR GO-TO PLACE IN BOONE
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.

Place was very clean. Staff was friendly, helpful and funny. Rooms were better than expected and actually better than other Holiday Inn's we stayed at. Really liked this place and it will always be a place we will go when riding the Blue Ridge Parkway! And its right across the street from a Chilis!

We always stay at this Holiday Inn Express when we visit Boone. The service is very friendly and accommodating. The beds always have clean, comfortable linens and comfortable mattresses. The room is clean and centrally located to the places we visit. Also enjoy the free breakfast. We hope to be back again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by claudia72 Much Better Than Anticipated
My family of four stayed overnight one Friday; our room was a double queen on the first floor. The room was clean, the bathroom was large, and the beds were comfortable. There did not seem to be an inordinate amount of noise from the hallway. There was plenty of hot water with good water pressure. Parking was adequate, and the lobby was clean and updated. My only quibble is that the shower curtain was too short for the tub and water leaked onto the floor. We did not eat breakfast since we wanted to try a local restaurant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by zinaamm If only they have microwave in all rooms
I am almost a regular customer in this hotel due to business in Boone . Holiday Inn of Boone is an excellent hotel with clean spacious rooms and very good location . The only negative part is that the hotel has very limited numbers of microwaves and mini refrigerators. A couple of time I was able to have them in the room. Unfortunately, last time I could not. These are not expensive items. In fact I would be satisfied with just a microwave.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tanningguy41 Super comfortable room - great service.
Upon checking in the staff was super friendly and accommodating. They offered me an upgrade to a king room and the room was comfortable, cool and the bed was great. Breakfast was the usual top quality of HIE. I stay at HIE's 3 to 5 times a month and the one in Boone is on the top of the list. Keep up the good work!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by janet52 Comfortable Bed/Small Balcony and Pool
The room was very clean and the beds very comfortable.
The balcony was very small with no chairs to sit in and enjoy it.
Our view from the balcony was poor because we had the front archway blocking the view in the middle of the balcony. The pool was very small. They did accommodate us when we called about a refrigerator and microwave in the room, when we arrived it was there in the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SS1SF Impressive property! I have never stayed at a nicer (Express) Holiday Inn!
From the moment I arrived I had the pleasure of being Greeted by Ashley at the Front desk ! Ashley was fantastic and wish there were more people with her level of skill at other Holiday Inn Express. I was treated very professionally and of Importance. Also Rachel at the front desk also provided great care! Just a few things to mention. This hotel was always fully staffed (2 people at front desk all times) Three people working breakfeast. The decor was that of a full service Holiday Inn! I was sad leaving this Holiday Inn. I have never felt sad leaving somewhere. The reason for that was I wanted to stay longer cause I had such an outstanding experiece! Ashley and Rachel should be recognized for there high level of great service. Holiday Inn needs to look at these to young ladies to maybe train staff across the country! Thank you Holiday Inn Express Staff!!!!

My daughter and I came up for ASU orientation and we found the room to be clean and updated. I am always worried about hotel rooms regarding cleanliness so it was nice to have a new bathroom and less linens on the beds to worry with (heavy comforters that I don't know how clean they are). The hotel is nice and conveniently located to campus.
Overall a quick, but nice stay. I also like the fact that the hotel is 100% non-smoking!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MIkeJC Awful Wi-Fi
Unable to consistently connect to the hotel wi-fi, making it impossible to do any of the work I needed to do. As a business traveller and a priority club member, I rely on the hotel wi-fi system to complete the work I need to do on a daily basis. Without this basic service, I cannot recommend this property.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I arrived in Boone a couple of hours early - 1:00 p.m. I asked the desk operator on station if there was a chance to check-in early. That individual did look and was able to accomodate my early arrival - along with a snack!! Look forward to visiting this Holiday Inn during a fall motorcycle trip!!!
