Excellent choice hotel for those visiting Hickory Furniture Mart - adjacent to the Mart with restaurants surrounding the hotel. Excellent staff, very clean rooms, excellent breakfast. Very pleased, and plan to return soon. Highly recommend!

This hotel is new and its super nice love the colors and modern feel of it. Had walk in showers which I like. It was quite here. The front desk staff was kinda friendly. Had a big breakfast area. The location is a plus cause its close to everything the mall is jus down the road. Would definitely go back.

Stopped here on the road and found it to be at least typical for a Holiday Inn Express, maybe even a bit better than typical. The only thing I can think of to complain about is the fact that it's tucked away from the road and is a bit of a pain to actually get to it.

We recently were looking for a new house and didnt know the area. We noticed that Holiday Express was newer and the price was reasonable. We were very happy when we got a King bed on first floor with SHORT notice. The staff went out of their way to please. The room was good size and CLEAN. We stayed several...

Room, bathroom - relatively clean, but smelled like a hospital. Very noisy AC. Breakfast was inedible. Bread was frozen and toaster was not working. Juice was so watered down, only had a color. There was a long line for pancakes, but we couldn't eat them. Even fruit (apples) were inedible. How can you mess up the apples? Do not recommend...

This newer hotel is conveniently located to shopping and a variety of restaurants - and not a bad drive to Boone. Our first floor room was very spacious,clean and comfortable.The staff were friendly. If you're interested in eating breakfast late, this is one of the few places that serves their continental breakfast until noon. I also like the standard later...

The decor was stark and blindingly lit with weird LED lighting, long winding halls, but the reception was very friendly and professional. The room was clean. I was on my way to Asheville from Raleigh and this was a good halfway point, but it was very basic, and seemed to be expensive for what you get.

This is a modern and clean hotel with easy access to all major freeways. It is quiet though. A big shopping mall is close by as well as many places to eat. Breakfast is included and - as always at Holiday Inn Express - good and plentiful. I would stay here again.
