We were very satisfied with our reservation. Our room was very clean, all the amenities worked, the staff explained everything to us. They had free maps available, that we used, to view area attractions. We bagged our breakfast the next morning, and left rested, and happy!

Hotel's Favourite
The Best Western Mountain Lodge is conveniently located to shops, restaurants and wineries. And is close to Linville, Boone and Blowing Rock. It's decorated with a Scottish flare, has a pool, is a clean, comfortable and peaceful place to stay. It's also close to Sugar Mountain skiing. Banner Elk has a lot of festivals, so it's a perfect location to stay. We love it.

Last minute get away. We were lucky to stumble upon this hotel as everywhere else seemed to be booked or too expensive. The hotel was very clean and quite. Our room had a king bed, small refrigerator, microwave and single cup coffee maker. The breakfast was a pack and go, you picked what you wanted and took back to your room. Great location, very convenient to site seeing, shopping and local parks.

Love staying at the Best Western because I can always count on cleanliness. This location has the nicest rooms and most importantly the friendliest and most helpful staff. I love the Banner Elk area this time of year but it is a little busy. These folks seem to handle it well considering all of the staff shortages and other obstacles caused by Covid-19.

We booked this lodge for a one night stay and was happily surprised at what a great experience it was. The outside needs some repair, especially the concrete decking, but the rooms were very clean and updated as well as the lobby. They offered grab and go breakfast and we expected typical danishes and coffee. They had that plus warm sausage biscuits, hard boiled eggs, english muffins/ bagels, fruit and cereal, all either single serve or wrapped. The best part of the breakfast was the very pleasant employee who greeted everyone and pointed out our choices. It was a great place in a sweet town!
