This property was extremely clean and provided all the necessary ammenities . The decor in the lobby and first floor was so cool. All Scottish themed bc of the high number of Highlanders who immigrated to the area in the 18th century. Really cool artifacts and welcoming lobby with nice furniture. Very cool! And the staff was welcoming and proffesional. I highly recommend this hotel. I'd return again. And the value was great and very well priced with a good location close to downtown.

Hotel's Favourite
We've been coming to this hotel for several years and always get excellent service, the rooms are very clean and when we need to bring our dog, they have special rooms and large play area out back for pets. During Covid, they practice super safe covid practices (we wouldn't stay if they didn't) and the rooms are very clean. Hotel staff always so welcoming and helfpul.

We were looking for a nice comfortable mountain hotel to stay at while visiting NC. Glad we found this place. It was comfortable and the staff was super friendly. Because of covid they will not clean your room during your stay but they will leave amenities outside your room. All you have to do is call and tell them what you need. The pool was clean and refreshing although we only went once during our stay because how busy it was. The breakfast could have been better but they are doing the best they can during these covid times. The staff was always friendly and accommodating and overall we enjoyed our stay. My only complaint is how outdated the rooms are. The carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced as it was stained but otherwise the room was pretty clean. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for an overnight trip to Banner Elk. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. Its not within walking distance to Banner Elk town center but is a 5 minute drive. It was quiet and they offered a grab and go breakfast which was helpful. Also some rooms are dog friendly and they had an area for doggie business so that was awesome.
