Tub drain was clogged.

We have stayed in nicer, cleaner Holiday Inn Express hotels. But the furnishings were new, the beds comfortable, and the staff friendly.

I was disappointed that the pool was closed for renovations, but we didn’t see anything about it while making the reservations. I really wanted to have some pool and sunshine during my short stay. The breakfast was just mediocre compared to other breakfast choices in the past. The room was nice and comfortable.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the HolidayInn Express at Blowing Rock. Check-In was as breeze along with a quick check-out. Our room , a king bed was nice, very comfortable along with being clean and excellent WiFi. We plan to visit again soon.

This place is under remodeling and very dirty. Staff is unfriendly. Continental Breakfast is served in a small room in the basement. Only one small elevator for 4 floors. Cleaning crew is friendly and helpful. For the money, go elsewhere.

It was under construction did not say that on the website at all. The property was not clean bathrooms in rooms very small. Toilets very small. Staff was very friendly but overall stay was not good.

It is clear that this hotel needs maintenance and repairs. They have a humidity issue. Even though the AC was on non-stop the room still had a pretty strong humidity smell. The AC was one of the noisiest I have ever heard! The access driveway has three huge potholes that need repair. It is not up to part with others we have stayed.

Such a nice place to stop and rest. My daughter loved the indoor pool. Just enough size to get her wiggles out after 3.5 hours of driving

Very good location and very friendly staffs. Like it !

Wonderful complimentary breakfast! Hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant.

We enjoyed our stay. Staff was very welcoming. Breakfast was very good. Beds was very comfortable.
