We always stay at this Inn when we are in the area. The view is amazing, peaceful and clean! It is being remodeled right now, but it is still clean. I really love the color scheme in the rooms and the texture of the carpet.

This place feels like home. I have stayed here several times while visiting Bryson City and Cherokee, NC. It's only a short drive to Harrahs (about 5 or 6 miles). The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful. After staying there several times, they now remember me when I check in. The breakfast is very good with a variety...

My sister, daughter, niece, and I go to Dillsboro, NC each summer for a girls' trip and we always stay here. It's always very clean and the staff is very nice. The breakfast bar is wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better view of the river. We LOVE this hotel.

My favorite place to stay when I am in WNC. Great rooms on the river, pool and great breakfast! You can even put your own tube in the river and float down the Tuck. The staff is always friendly and makes sure your having a great time!

We had a river view room and are still talking about the view. This hotel is modern and beautiful. I am a stickler for cleanliness and believe me it was immaculate. The breakfast was not continental, it was DELICIOUS, pancakes, waffles, sausage etc. What a treat!! The property is amazing. What a beautiful stay!

What a wonderful setting! The staff is delightful and the location can't be beat. We even used the BBQ grill and picnic tables for a cookout for our group. Be sure to ask for a room overlooking the river--that way you can fbe lulled to sleep by the sound.

Just got back from a weekend stay at the Best Western and had a great time. Elizabeth checked us in, and she was fantastic. Even though we have been to that part of NC, she gave us some great tips for new restaurants. Even with the renovation going on, our stay was enjoyable. The hotel, right on the river has...

We stayed here for 2 nights. They didn't clean our room the 1st night. Couldn't connect via wifi on my phone. Only had 2 bars on computers. They are upgrading the decor but they SHOULD be spending money on getting the hotel networked properly so guests are not inconvenienced by not being able to connect. Especially when trying to have...

Average hotel being you can hear everyone is the rooms above, below, beside. There is a free breakfast which is nice. Very important, if you don't tell them you want a riverfront room, you will be looking at the parking lot!!!!

A great setting, good facilities and a friendly staff make this a great place to get away for a few days. Set in the middle of some beautiful mountain scenery and not far to Asheville or Cherokee if you want more active things to do. We will be back.
