The people that run this place are very friendly and treat you well. The room was a little small, but was very clean and nicely decorated. The were a few places in the ceiling that looked like water damage, but those were the only cosmetic problems I saw. When we first pulled in and saw the place, I thought we...

Thanks DocGB for your review, I hope I've fixed the leak, but the ceiling stain will be part of an overall inside painting later this spring. I'd welcome suggestions as to what would make the outside pop out a bit, in warm weather Maxine's beautiful garden flowers set us off as attractive, but on a drab winter day not so...

We needed to spend a few days in Boone to get our son settled in at App. Given the cost of higher education these days we were trying to be cost conscious and found the rates at Hidden Valley to fit the bill. This small family owned motel is truly a hidden gem. It is a 10 minute drive to...

Small mom and pop motel, owners were very friendly, the room was a tad smaller than a normal motel room but it was well decorated with old time family photos and some nice artwork on the walls, included tv, internet, AC/heat, refrigerator, coffee maker, the room was clean and i was very happy with our stay. I would recommend this...

Matt thanks for taking the time to write a review of Hidden Valley Motel, it is always a help to us and future visitors.

We stayed for four nights. It is old fashioned, but not out-of-date or old. It is cozy, clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Decoration show much thought and effort. The innkeepers were very accommodating and friendly. This place will be our first choice the next time we stay in the Boone area.

Thank you for staying at Hidden Valley Motel. My decorating style is sort of between mountain cabin and grandma's house, our hope is that guest will depart feeling that they have visited with family. We appreciate your taking the time to write a review to help us and future guests. Thanks, Jim & Maxine

My wife and I stayed just one night at this old-fashioned, 'mom-and-pop' motel last week as part of our cruising the Blue Ridge Pkwy. We stayed at a variety of places; another of this type, a timeshare, a chain hotel, and the Pisgah Inn. None of them was any more hospitable or accommodating. Our room was clean, the mattresses firm,...

Thanks my friend for the review, we try to incorporate a home feel into our guest room in hopes that guests depart with the feeling that they have visited family or friends. I confess, I'm guilty on the water pressure, needed to change the filters and they were restricting the flow. Thanks again for staying at Hidden Valley Motel

This review is really overdue. We have stayed at the Hidden Valley Motel multiple times, both overnight stays and longer week stays. Each time we have always had very pleasant stays. This motel is run by the nicest couple you would ever want to meet. Jim and Maxine take care of their guests as though we were family. The motel...

Thanks Steve, we appreciate your review and your continuing to return and visit. Reviews are important as they let future guests know what to expect, they also help educate me on where to improve. We're glad you felt like family, that's my goal, hope many feel that they have visited granny or a favorite aunt. Jim

We love the Mom & Pop lodges. They were motorcycle friendly and very personable. The room was clean and comfortable. They also gave excellent recommendations on where to eat. The next time we are in the area, we will stay there.

Thanks for the review and lodging with us at Hidden Valley. It is an advantage of being tiny that those with a special vehicle can usually park outside of their room where they can keep an eye on the vehicle. I enjoy all of our guests, fun to get to meet folks. Jim

Although Hidden Valley appears to be a bit dated on the exterior, the interior appears to have been recently remodeled. Everything was fresh and clean - very comfortable bedding and pillows. Even hide wi-fi! Very homey feeling and quaint. The lady that checked us in was very friendly and it felt very much a throwback to the pre-corporate style chain...
