Positive Reviews

Great beds and breakfast..

Guests generally describe the rooms as very clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Families particularly appreciate the convenience of in-room microwaves and mini fridges. Many enjoy a great night's sleep in a comfortable bed, and also note that it is worth getting up early to avoid the crowds at the complimentary breakfast buffet. The variety of hot and cold items include eggs, bacon, fruit, cereals, breads, and the always popular make-your-own pancakes.

Friendly, helpful staff who know the area..

Many guests award the front desk staff and breakfast hosts high praise for their friendly, helpful, and professional customer service, noting that they seem pleased to accommodate special requests, recommend local restaurants, and share their knowledge of the area with new visitors.

Convenient for hikers and bikers..

The Holiday Inn Express Blowing Rock South is popular with motorcyclists for its proximity to the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. There are many dedicated spots for motorcycles in the large, complimentary parking lot as well. Hikers can reach Grandfather Mountain in just a few minutes, and can purchase discounted tickets from the front desk.

Negative Reviews

Blink and you'll miss it..

Many travelers comment that the hotel's exterior signage could be bigger and brighter, noting that it's position behind an Outback Steakhouse and Woodlands BBQ makes it is a little tricky to find in the day time and quite difficult at night.

No fresh mountain air..

Several guests were disappointed to find the windows sealed shut, noting the fresh mountain air would have been preferable to the air conditioning, which was too noisy for some.

A tight fit in the bathroom..

Several guests describe the bathrooms as "tiny", and male travelers are particularly irked by the low counter over the toilet, which prevents the lid from staying in the 'up' position.
