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. The rooms are basic but clean. Beds comfortable. Bathroom grout could have been a little...

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.

I think its the little things that make a hotel stand out or fall flat. For us this one fell flat over a number of little things gone wrong. We stayed one night here on our vacation. The room was pretty, it was clean, the decor was modern. The room-darkening curtains were especially helpful. But....The mini-fridge was inside an open...

This hotel is very conveniently located near the Blue Ridge Pkwy and the great fall foliage! We were greeted by a very friendly young woman, McKenzie, who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.

For $265 on a Thursday night we expected better. Tub didn't drain, wallpaper peeling all over the room, A/C ran all night. Other than that it was OK. Close to Main St by car. Probably wouldn't stay there again.

Room was clean, all appliances worked - Keurig coffee maker, hair dryer, fridge & microwave. Breakfast bar was well stocked and coffee available 24/7. Staff was accomodating. Plenty of parking available. They had motorcycle parking near the door with towels available to wipe dew or rain from the bikes.

Being a peak fall color weekend the rate I paid thru Priceline was $30 more than the max rate shown on the back of the hotel room door.
