Furniture in the room was a bit worn/old. Room could use updating.

1-we paid $10 extra for a balcony room It was not 1st floor "balcony" view of the parking lot Porch maybe? 2-there are vent holes in the bathroom but no switch to turn the vent On, so the mirrors stay foggy 3-mold! In the bathroom and the hallway. Not ok For the price of the room, it shouldve been much better 4-they wouldnt print a receipt for us when we left Told us to contact our 3rd party to get one Would not stay again! Very noisy! Told us we were getting a balcony...it was on the first floor facing the parking lot! Had to pay extra for it!

Thank you for your feedback. You are correct, a better term for the first floor rooms would be "patio". I will look into changing that. The bathroom venting is on a draw system and is constantly removing steam from the bathrooms. It is not the most efficient system, I agree, but was installed at the time the building was built. We are looking at a replacement system at the time of our full renovation. We are obligated by our contract terms with Expedia to not provide guests with receipts from the property. Expedia retains the right to provide receipts to guests booking thru their systems. I am sorry if you felt that we were just being difficult, that was not the case.

The staff was great! My room was clean! I needed a different room and they made that change without any issues.

Great place to stay for a visit to App State and some shopping in Blowing Rock! Very convenient to several restaurants too. Cozy room, comfy beds and a nice hot free breakfast. Would definitely come back!

Overall pretty nice hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
I thought it was a very nice hotel. Really enjoyed the hot breakfast they offered and the beds were very comfortable. The only negtive thing was the fact that it said that it had a hot tub but did not have one. The other thing was that they did not have chairs on the balcony, but overall go experience.

Nice, but room smelled like smoke

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: non-smoking room smelled like smoke
We had an okay stay here. The price was a bit much for the money, but all the other hotels in the area had similar prices at the time. Our room happened to smell like smoke some and the more time we spent there, the more I felt that, but since we had a small child with us and did not want to go through the trouble of switching rooms after unpacking etc. we just stayed there for that one night. Our friends' room did not have that smell. Otherwise everything else worked well for us and the pool was in good condition.

First, we'd like to thank you for choosing to stay with us at HIE Boone. We are so sorry the room smelled of smoke. As you know, we are a 100% smoke-free hotel. Although every guest signs a no-smoking policy upon check-in, some guests choose to ignore the policy and smoke anyway. Of course, when this happens, we do our best to scour the room and clean the carpets. We also use a special deodorizer to eliminate the smell. Unfortunately we missed the lingering scent and so we apologize for any inconvenience or uncomfortable night stay, this may have caused you and your family. We would very much have liked the opportunity to provide a solution to you when you were in house as it is extremely important to us that our guests are in a clean, safe comfortable and smoke-free environment. Should you decide to return to Boone, we hope you will consider staying with us again as we appreciate your communication and your business. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel, your feedback is invaluable to us.

very frustrating!!

Stayed 3 nights. Hot water did not work right. For about a minute it would blast scolding water and then it was ice cold for ever. Said they would get a technician up there and did not fix anything. Everyday we were there, we were snowboarding all day, so we wanted a WARM SHOWER. They told us we could move after the second night (HUGE INCONVENIENCE). We tried complaining but the district manager was very rude! Said we refused to move when we didnt and wouldnt cut us any slack! The extra money for another hotel is well worth it.

So sorry your team lost K.G!

Next time don't take it out on the hotel! It's a great hotel. We've stayed here and would again. Maybe if you expected less next time you get more. It's all in your attitude, "didn't ya know." It's not the Ritz-Carlton, afterall! (no offence H-EX)
