Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Blowing Rock

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great for a short stay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
If you're looking for a place to crash and not spend much time in during the day, this is a good hotel for that. It's pretty old, but they've generally kept it up well. The rooms smell a little dingy, but nothing that's not typical for a property of this age. Breakfast in the morning was much more than I had expected. Plenty of hot plate options, which I enjoy. Our bathroom walls and counter would drip with water when we showered because there is no fan in there, so I recommend keeping the door open to help with that. You can see mildew spots on the ceiling in the bathroom, but again, nothing that really bothers me. I would definitely stay here again.

"Staff was very accommodating and helpful."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My husband and I stayed at your hotel about 10 years ago and had a wonderful experience. We love how you welcome motorcycles. We really like the white duvet covers and sheets on the beds. It was easy to tell that they were clean. We had a very enjoyable experience. All staff (Front desk, Housekeeping, Breakfast) were focused on our comfort. Wonderful people!

"HIE Blowing Rock Great location, price and beds!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel is showing some age. They were completely full Fri/Sat before we arrived Sunday and it took till Tuesday PM for the crews to completely recover from the activities! Hats off, they put in the time and effort. They could do better cleaning the hallways and major traffic area throughout the day, but our room was spotless! Two issues in the bathroom the shower faucet doesn't have a 'stopping point' it just goes around and around and you have 'find' a place to set the temp on your own, it was fun to learn how to not freeze yourself after a nice hot shower. Second, the toilet was installed up against the wall, like most, but the sink counter was low and this did not permit the toilet seat to be lifted and stay up. We had to either hold the lid and seat in place or hold in place as seated not enjoyable. The beds were wonderful and the hotel was VERY QUIET. The entire staff is tops everyone was so polite, professional and helpful.
