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... More

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 It is old fashioned, but not out-of-date or old.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.

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,... More

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 More

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... More

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 More

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.

My wife and I stayed here for a midweek getaway to Boone. It is not a 5 star luxurious hotel in the middle of a big city, which is perfect! It's a small, mom and pop run gem right outside of Boone.

We checked in Friday afternoon 5/13/16, and when we opened the door to Room # 7, it had a musty odor. The bathroom wallpaper corners were peeling, and looked damp and mildew..

I’m sorry you did not enjoy your visit and I appreciate the review, but may I add a few details?
