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.

Booked this hotel on Booking.com.
Hotel is clean but hard to get to because of new highway.
They need entrance and exit signs at the street . Downtown is not within walking distance, but a short drive will get you there or to Boone , 5 miles away . Blue Ridge Parkway is 2 miles away .
Check in staff was very friendly, because of my wifes issues with mobility the tubs were of no use in the bathroom, so I asked for the ADA room which they gave us at no extra charge . The breakfast room was busy , but the staff kept up bringing food .
Standard fare ..so so eggs , ok sausage, etc. I was disappointed in the warm cinnamon rolls ..something has changed with Holiday Inn rolls.. they used to be HOT , GOOEY AND GOOD ..now they are a little dry , and not gooey ..
They did give us a late checkout, so we could get some extra snoozing in ..
Overall..would stay again , skip breakfast, and visit IHOP down the street (10% off with room key)

Free hot breakfast, coffee anytime, friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, soft bed and extra pillows. Central location close to most attractions and the parkway; only problem was construction going on in the back parking lot; it's a little off the path to find the entrance as it sits down in a gully from the road.
