Get a room with a view!! Nice clean hotel. Small so doesn't feel crowded. Clean indoor pool, fire pit and ok breakfast bar with some hot items. Town has lots of shops and restaurants. Short easy drive to Great Smokey Mt Railroad and Cherokee.

I stayed at this hotel with a business group. We had 10 rooms from Sunday to Friday. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean and comfortable. The staff is professional, courteous, and friendly. Breakfast choices include pancakes, waffles, cereal, muffins and breads, apples and oranges, and beverages. Nice indoor pool (about 35 feet long), although the jets in the...

We didn't have a reservation but got tired (road trip) and saw the Best Western billboard so decided to stay here. I can not recommend this hotel enough. Such friendly and helpful staff, clean, breakfast and a front row seat on the river. Inside seating that looks out on the river if it is raining/cold. Rocking chairs or table and...

This hotel is just off the highway 23 with room and porch views of the Tuckasegee River. We've visited about once a year for 4 or so years. The draw is the view from the back porch with rocking chairs where you can just sit and relax but take heed, the sun can get hot on you. On our latest...

What a great find! We needed to find a place for a one-night stay in-between others and the Best Western Plus River Escape Inn & Suites came up as an option. While some of the reviews mentioned remodeling, we had absolutely no problems at all. The staff was great, the room, outstanding and the view WOW! Even though it was...

We were referred to this hotel by a friend. So glad we were able to get a reservation for the 3 nights we were there. Even though it was a rainy weekend, the view from our riverfront balcony made the dreary days well worth it! The breakfast buffet is relatively standard, nothing takes it over the top, but was nice...

This hotel and it's staff were wonderful! I was very impressed with all the renovations that had been done. Everywhere you looked, inside or outside, you could tell that major renovations had been performed recently. Landscaping, the deck, the pool and hot tub area, the rooms, and the common area's all looked great and freshly re-done. We had a 5...

As always, the quality, comfort, attentiveness of the staff, cleanliness of the grounds and building were top of the line. We would never consider staying anywhere else than this Best Western when traveling to the Western part of North Carolina.

Again an excellent experience. We enjoyed our stay and the convenience of the location to Cherokee, Dillard, Townsend, and Pigeon Forge areas. Access to local areas was exactly what we wanted and had a great time.
