I love staying here. It's convenient to downtown Banner Elk, loaded with amenities, has a great breakfast (starts a little later than most BW properties, but worth the wait), outstanding staff (Joy checked me in and lived up to her name), fast internet, and comfortable beds. Great value - it feels more like an upscale lodge than a hotel. I'll...

We were only there one night but found this hotel to be a clean and comfortable stay in a beautiful location. It is near Grandfather Mountain and easy to find, and the staff is friendly. The only drawback was that we were on the second floor and there was no elevator and my husband has back problems. The breakfast was...

The hotel is a pretty typical BW, outside doors, pool, some other amenities. Very friendly and helpful staff who were quick with directions and dining recommendations. We'd stay there again if we are in the area.

This hotel was fine, probably the best in this area as there are not many choices. This is what I would expect, basic, clean, friendly and convenient for my needs. Staff was courteous and well informed. The breakfast option looked very good, though due to a business meeting I was unable to dine here.

The most friendly staff you will ever run into. They went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed for our 3 day stay. Quiet, clean and comfortable rooms. Would definitely stay there again!

Nice 2 story motel right off the road in Banner Elk. Our room was the pet friendly variety with a dog walk close by. The room was clean with hardwood floors, 2 double beds, small refrigerator, and microwave. We were in the second floor with no elevator. Our doggie was given a bag of treats on arrival. Nice place.

Quite expensive compared to other BW but that's probably due to location. Nice pool area however there are broken sun beds which should be taken away. Breakfast was very average. My key would not work even though I took it back to reception. Good clean room but plumbing was noisy.

We stay at this Best Western every time we come to Banner Elk, and it is a great place. We bring our dog at times, and it is always very clean. Our children enjoyed the pool this time, and loved it. We are very thankful for the good memories we make while here staying at the Best Western.

Our hiking group selected this hotel for our yearly trip. It is in a beautiful area with many hiking opportunities and restaurants. It was a good choice with very nice and clean updated rooms. They also supplied us with a conference room for our fun gathering. My one complaint is that they did not supply tea bags along with the...
