The cute little town of Blowing Rock in North Carolina makes for a great family getaway, and you’re well-located to everything when you stay at this friendly Holiday Inn. Rooms have mini-fridges, microwaves and coffee makers for simple meal prepping. And a full breakfast buffet in the lobby restaurant is included with your stay. The hotel’s heated indoor pool is open year-round and there’s an onsite fitness center for guests, too.

Great location. Room was clean, great breakfast. Great staff and we stayed for 10 days -- always helped by the staff. Edge of forested area and very close to Tweetsies and Boone.
As I read the negative reviews about this location, I ask if these are real reviews or if other lodging establishments are trying to give this HIE a bad reputation. Sad.
We have been staying at Holiday Inn Express since they cost a little less, but this one was really old. It was just ok as was the whole blowing rock area. Keep driving and head for Brevard and route 64. Nicer area and hotels and restaurants. Used to like this area but in 20 years it has gotten run down and congested.
