Walk to Everything in Downtown Boone

We are proud to be the only boutique hotel & rooftop bar in downtown Boone. Located on King Street across from the iconic Mast General Store, you can’t beat our walkable location. All of Boone’s restaurants, shopping, and the Appalachian State Campus are within blocks. The Horton Hotel combines the rich history of Boone with the comforts and fine amenities of a boutique hotel.

Stunning Mountain Views

Enjoy breathtaking views of Howard’s Knob, Appalachian State, and downtown Boone from our rooftop bar & hotel. Cozy up next to our fire pit and sip a handmade craft drink while taking in the beauty of the mountains or relax in one of our 15 guest rooms. We believe in preserving our rich local history and each of our hotel rooms are uniquely decorated and reflect the local vibe.

Hotel History

Built by H.W. Horton in the 1920s, our historical building honors the traditions of our small town while providing a unique boutique experience. The original Horton building was both a Studebaker dealership and a Spainhour’s Department Store. We aim to continue the Horton legacy as a great place to gather and enjoy friends, drinks, views, and the finer things.
