Wonderful staff! Good clean rooms. A lot of choices for a good breakfast. Staff went out of there way to make us feel like we were at home. Internet worked well. Soap is by liquid dispenser only no bar soap so if you prefer bar bring from home.

Quiet and close to Banner Elk. Older but seems clean. Point to note that this is more of an MOTEL. Doors are external vs opening into an internal hallway. Just different than what I'm used to and only thing around. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

Stay here during your trip to the area. All employees were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was above average in selection. The fixtures in the guest rooms were of better quality than many guest rooms in other hotels in the chain.

Extremely pleased with our stay. Clean room and comfortable bedding. Superior service at the front desk. Really like the fact that offer non-pet room and non-smoking rooms. Very clean with no scent or animal dander. Comfortable outside heated pool with grills to cook out on , as an option. also. We look forward to staying at this Best Western again...

We drove 2000 miles and stayed four places. This was by far our favorite. It was the least expensive by far, although we would have been happy to pay more for the lovely room and surroundings. The heated pool was SO relaxing!

We were happy with our stay. Hotel staff was friendly and the breakfast was surprisingly good. Our room keys never seemed to work though and other guests were having problems with them as well. Staff always was happy to swap them out but it never really fixed the issue. Priced well for the area though and in a pretty location....

Other than the fact that the fridge didn't have a freezer we felt the amenities were fine. They have an excellent breakfast. Things are maintained well and the service staff is excellent. My wife really enjoyed that a shower cap was provided.

Room was very clean and a good breakfast. Great location - just a few miles from Grandfather Mountain and Boone. A nice drive from Asheville. Nice views from the hotel and a beautiful lobby area. We will stay again.
