Beautiful little town and the hotel fits in perfectly. The heated outdoor pool was closed due to unseasonably cold weather put we could see the steam coming off it. Really nice rooms and a great price. Great breakfast included.

What can you say bad about a place in the mountains of North Carolina? The only thing we have to say is the entire stay was wonderful, the views were fantastic and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was indeed a pleasant surprise. The breakfast provided is what one would expect at a higher priced hotel. Mary, the breakfast staff made...

After spending a few days in Asheville we headed north to Banner Elk to take in the mountain views and do some skiing. The Best Western is the only chain hotel around and didn't disappoint. The girl at the front desk was very helpful upon check in and even recommended some local breweries to check out. The room was fine..no...

tiny bathroom, no hand soap, outdoor noise (like people's rolling suitcases). Limited fruit with breakfast Room was either too cold or too warm as the HVAC went off/on. No extra blanket in room All electrical outlets were behind furniture except one by door, but then no table/counter to set an object on.

The bathroom has no fan and is very small There are no hand lotions or other small amenities Finding an outlet to plug things in was a search...oh, yes, one by the door, but table to rest the item on. We pulled a straight back chair over to the door. The curtains don't meet in the middle, so outsiders can...

Thank you for a great pet-friendly experience. Your feather bed was AMAZING. The breakfast not so good. The staff was very helpful and the room was beautiful. The heater system was very loud. Thank you.

Infrastructure is typical for a Best Western, comfortable, quiet, when we stayed attention of all personnel was beyond nice, all of them, it made it super nice. The wifi works in the lobby and if your room is too far it fades, but the lobby is beautiful with a fireplace and 2 big comfy lather couches, it was nice to...

We were coming to ski to the area and wanted to find a mid range priced hotel that was close to both ski resorts, Beech and Sugar Mountain. Usually our choice for mid range priced hotels is Hampton Inn, which never fails to please. We couldn't find a Hampton Inn in this area, so this was the only one that...
