“Not as good as it once was...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

We are currently in the middle of a 3 day stay at this hotel. We have stayed here before and thought we knew what we were getting. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The other reviews stating the mattresses and pillows are in dire need of replacing are right! Definite hole in the middle of the bed. With two people in a bed, it is very uncomfortable. Pillows feel as if there are just shredded pieces of foam in them. It even seems as though they are skimping on the breakfast compared to our last stay. Very disappointing compared to the experience we are used to getting from other Holiday Inn Express hotels. My next trip to Boone, I will stay at another hotel.

Opted for a suite and found the room to be very oversized as well as the bathroom. The breakfast had a nice variety.

Room Tip: update to a suite it is worth it.

Spent the night here after a visit to Appalachian State University. Check-in was so quick, I barely had my wallet out before he was handing me the key card. Extremely nice property with many modern conveniences. Our room had a private but very small balcony. It overlooked the main street but the mountains were surrounding the entire property. Super-clean room and bathroom. Very comfortable beds. WONDERFUL full breakfast including omelettes, biscuits, gravy, pancakes, waffles, sausage, etc. The dining room is very pretty with a tall fireplace. Great stay!

In search of a mountain home, my husband and I have made many trips to Boone. We try to stay away from traffic congestion, which is difficult in this small college town. Holiday Inn Express use to be a really nice place to stay. It is in need of renovation. Beds and pillows need to be replaced-magor sagging in beds and pillows are lumpy and totally uncomfortable. Breakfast is okay-nothing special. Would be nice to have a small fridge in rooms. Will be looking for a different place to stay on next trip.
