Very friendly staff and very comfortable pet friendly rooms. Great Continental breakfast. All in all a wonderful value! If you don't want to be looking out of your room at the wall of the outside corrider, be sure to specify that you want an outside or poolside room.

Stayed for only one night (9/15/16), but the front desk was very helpful with directions and suggestions for a restaurant. We had met friends there on our way home from Florida. The room was clean & quiet. Would stay there again if the chance arises.

The place was very inviting from the moment I called them to inquire about getting a room. The lady at the front desk was very helpful. When we arrived the lobby had that at home feeling. It looks very rustic giving you the feeling of being in a mountain cabin. The room was very nice and the bed slept great....

I loved the location and cool temperatures. I pool was nice too It was really nice but we were on the second floor and I didn't like the stairs and my back bothered us after 2 nights..Maybe because we are older. Breakfast room is great and food is great.

My friend and I decided to stay here after the Bristol football game, due to the huge price difference compared to the hotels in Bristol. We arrived around 3am, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the workers were at this time of morning. The lady working the front desk, was probably the nicest person you'll ever meet. The location...

Nice little place. Been there before with the Porsche club. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food service is fine as well. Bar could be better stocked......limited spirits on hand. The property is a little dated but most in the area are. It's clean and has a nice sized heated pool.

Staff were all excellent and willing to go the extra mile. Room was clean and no problems with functionality. I've stayed here several times in the past. The operators obviously have made an attempt to maintain quality of service. There was a Porsche thing going on when I was there, and it consumed a lot of available parking. Other than...

This is not exactly a 5 star hotel, but it is a VERY NICE hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. My partner and I have stayed at the BW Mountain Lodge a couple times as we looked for places to rent in the Boone area. The staff was helpful at every turn. Very friendly at the front desk and...

My short stay was outstanding. The front desk let me stay 2 extra hours so my Son could have more pool time without any hesitation. All the staff was wonderful and I would recommend this place to everyone. The popcorn machine was great for a late night movie and coffee was good also.

We recently stayed one night this past weekend and had a nice stay. The staff was very courteous, and gave us great recommendations for nearby restaurants. We ended up at Stonewalls and loved it. The room was clean, although it was a poor decision to mount the blow dryer to the wall near the bathroom that ended up blocking the...
