We stayed here for one night and we were not impressed. The reasons are, The beds are extremely uncomfortable feather-top mattresses that can give you a stiff back, the feather lump in the middle of the bed made us worried about rolling off all night, The two double bed rooms do not have queen size mattresses making the beds very...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway and as night was falling we decided to leave the parkway and find a place to eat and sleep. We first found the Pedalin' Pig BBQ, stopped there and had a delicious bite to eat, and then looked up hotels on our phone. Found the Best Western and headed over. This was a...

Best Western has not historically been my favorite. We came through Banner Elk late one evening and needed a place to stay. The young woman at the front desk was very kind and personable. She directed us to great little restaurant that was close by. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. We are planning another trip...

The Hotel was very nice. Clean and convenient to restaurants, shopping and great roads to ride. We were with 2 other couples. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They would go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to make sure all of your needs were met

Just a good hotel that provided me with a clean room and a good night's sleep. I really liked the location, it was easy to find and convenient for the spots I wanted to visit in Banner Elk. The staff was friendly and welcoming.

Came down for the Beech Mountain metric ride. Room was ready when we got there. Best part was they allowed a really late check out so we could grab a shower after the ride so we could get on the road. Rooms were OK, a little dated but perfect for what we needed. They opened breakfast a little early for...

Love staying here whenever we are in the Banner Elk area. The hotel is pet friendly and we always travel with our furbabies. Facilities are clean, breakfast is hot and tasty. We were able to obtain late checkout due to graduation ceremony at Lees-McRae college which was a tremendous help.

Beds should have been replaced years ago. Staff placed a pad in center of bed, it was not even as wide as the mattress to compensate for the dips in the mattress. In my room and my companions rooms also!

First, the staff is very attentive and amiable. Lobby fireplace was a warm welcome in the spring chill. The beds appeared to be very lumpy. Upon inspection we discovered a lumpy mattress topper, not a comforter. The covers were quite thin. I requested an extra blanket which was very necessary. The next morning awoke with swollen, itchy eyes feeling like...
