Holiday Inn Express Wilkesboro

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was reluctant to stay because I had bad experiences with Holiday express in downtown Nashville. This was totally different room was great & resonable price. Staff was very helpful & nice. Breakfast was great with large variety of food. Enjoyed my stay

... Floors not vacuumed, the shower curtain smelled moldy... Simply poorly trained staff. The front desk staff treats you poorly if you don't book directly with them.... So if you use this site or other methods of booking you are treated like second class citizens. The breakfast was good. Unfortunately Wilkesboro has few choices as the Hampton is also owned by the same people (recently acquired ) that was good last time I stayed.... Hopefully it will remain good.

I was very impressed at the professional internal and external appearance, the hospitality and room. Excellent people and facility. The only fair rating was the typically average HIX breakfast bar. Not bad mind you but it sure does get old after eating at as many as I have.

Hotel room still smelled like smoke even though it was non smoking. Breakfast selection was abysmal and the coffee was less than desired. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The only good thing about this hotel was it was easy to find and close to my destination.

The staff was ggrrrreeeeaaaatttttt from the time I checked in until I checked out. During my stay, I asked about places to see ,things to do, where to eat and I got very good comments on everything I ask. The hotel breakfast is one of the best I have had in a hotel. It isn't fancy, just plain ,simple, fresh,and tasty. The room was clean. It smelled clean and I did not fine anything left from previous customers. If I was to change anything, I would like to have been able to have an open window verse the air conditioner. My visit was so nice , I took my girlfriend back the following weekend to show her the places I had been the week before. She was impressed with the hotel.

Nothing special. Staff was nice, place was clean, but the beds were very uncomfortable, there's no fitness room/gym, and overall the place is just a hotel. Good buffet breakfast, though.

Have relatives living in the area . . Have visited this hotel before . . Always clean and well attended to by staff . . Recommended with out hesitation .

Typical business class hotel; clean and well appointed. The room was of nice size the mattresses were very firm (almost to much so.) The continental breakfast was very nice but would have liked more fruit. The front desk staff were A++ in attitude, friendliness and professionalism. They made our stay a pleasure.

This is the third time I've used this hotel when going to the area on business. I have never had any problems and the room and other accommodations were exactly as advertised. The best part of my experience has always been the friendly staff, particularly the staff running the breakfast bar. They were great. So of course I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Was surprised there was no workout room at the hotel, but that's only because I didn't read the web site description very closely. Other than that, this was a great place to stay. Free internet and breakfast was exactly what I needed.

Clean, breakfast included, gave us late check out, only draw back our window looked out at a wall.

We spent all day Saturday at Tweetsie, for our daughters 2nd birthday. And rather than spending $200 - $300 bucks to stay in Boone, we drove the 30 miles to Wilkesboro, and saved ALOT of money. The hotel was very nice, quiet, and most importantly, comfortable!! One of the nicest Holiday Inn's I have ever stayed in.

This was a very nice hotel with a great hot breakfast and very comfortable room for a low rate.

great location, short drive to Boone, nearby resturants and shopping. Free breakfast was great, lots of variety.

Friendly check in, easy check out. Rooms are neat and clean, very convenient. Location makes for a good launching point to do the tourist thing. Free breakfast was not great, but we've had worse. Kudos to the staff for keeping the breakfast line well stocked and clean. We stayed 2 days, no problems.

The friendly staff was the nicest part of the hotel stay. Everything was clean and neat. Everything worked. I read in one review that the bathroom lights were a little dim: I would agree with that. You want bathrooms to be well lit. However, that was a minor thing. I have stayed in this motel before and was very satisfied. Totally recommend.

It was good

Everything was ready at check in.

I wanted a moderately priced hotel for a one night stay on my way to pick up my daughter in Boone. Boone's hotels were a little pricey for my needs, so I checked Wilkesboro and found just what I was looking for. The desk staff were so friendly and helpful; I was checked in quickly and on my way to my room. The room was spacious and very clean. I liked the selection of both soft and firm pillows that were provided on the bed. If you are looking for a less pricey alternative to Boone hotels, this is it. I made the trip into Boone in about 30 minutes, no problem. Also, I enjoyed a variety of shopping around Wilkesboro. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

I did not get into the hotel until about 7pm. It is right off the highway in a great location. Friendly staff met me at the desk and walked into a completely renovated room. Truly, they advertise as it is updated but it really does look like a brand new place. The breakfast was hot and much better than others I have had recently that offer free breakfast.
