The Mountain Lodge at Banner Elk provided great accomidations for our trip. The location was great with access to many things to do in the area. The management and staff were friendly and helpful. Our rooms were clean, quiet, and had a great mountain view. The "grab and go" breakfast provided a safe envirnoment with many options for kids and adults. I would highly recommend this lodge andwill definately be back in the future!

The Best Western Mountain Lodge is conveniently located to shops, restaurants and wineries. And is close to Linville, Boone and Blowing Rock. It's decorated with a Scottish flare, has a pool, is a clean, comfortable and peaceful place to stay. It's also close to Sugar Mountain skiing. Banner Elk has a lot of festivals, so it's a perfect location to stay. We love it.

I strongly recommend staying at the Best Western Mountain Lodge at Banner Elk. The location is perfect - close to great restaurants, hiking trails, the Alpine Coaster, ski resorts (in the winter) and a variety of other interesting sites (including the original General Mast store). The staff is professional, accommodating and friendly; always willing to assist. I've traveled a lot for business and stayed in a number of hotels. I can honestly say this is one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. It's evident that the staff works hard - the rooms are immaculate and the beds are comfortable. I enjoyed my first visit so much that I made a reservation for the following weekend, which also was an excellent experience.

Make sure you spend time with the manager. She is well versed and helpful about the area. We were on a fly fishing trip. She knew guides in the area and hooked us up with a young knowledgeable man named Will. We had a couple of days of family fun and fishing. What can beat that?
