We chose this hotel due to the price and good reviews. We booked online while driving, and the reservation was in their system within an hour. The hotel is new, and very clean. The room was well decorated, and had a Keurig coffee machine, refrigerator and microwave. There was plenty of space for our luggage, and a large closet with... More

We were attending an event in Boone, and this hotel was the closest we could get. It is still very convenient to get to Boone in just a few minutes. The hotel is bright, clean and modern.

Good motel. Somewhat difficult to get into but nice room. Looked like it had been refurbished. Only complaint was the breakfast room was over crowded. Perhaps they have expanded and number of rooms too many for the breakfast room.

This was a good home base for sight seeing in the Blowing Rock/Boone area. There are a few restaurants you could walk to and everything else is close driving distance including Tweetsie Railroad, downtown Blowing Rock and Boone, Grandfather Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Returned here this year as we had previous good experience with this location. Clean, good location, nice staff. Was not able to get handicapped room but staff supplied shower chair so that helped our situation. Reasonable price, love the breakfast that is included. Road construction continues that makes entrance and exit difficult. Would recommend and stay their again.
