We had a balcony overlooking the gorgeous river. We have never had a better river view. It was so romantic at night in the moon light. Open your Balcony Door and relax to the roar of the River. We observed Wild geese,Ducks and even a white Crane in the fast moving waters. The motel is fairly new and the rooms...

I booked this for one night. I was in a rush and did not check out any of the photos posted. It's on the other side of the tracks, not sure what I've gotten myself into. Well landscaped, very friendly, informative front desk clerk. Very nice, well appointed interior. Walked out the back door and was blown away. Great deck...

When my brother came to visit I recommended this Motel. I literally drove around and checked out each motel and the grounds and this one had the most Ambience. The front desk staff was friendly. The rooms were roomy, clean and nicely appointed. Overall I would say this stay was very pleasant and the room was very nice.

On the southern side of the Smokey Mountains this small gem of a hotel at Dillsboro is "a really nice place to stop and unwind".

Unfortunately our stay was limited to just one...

I stopped very late at night because I just was too tired to drive any further. No reservation but I did get a room. The young lady at the front desk was very polite and helpful. The room was very nice and clean. I was sorry this was not my destination because I could have stayed here and been happy...

I've traveled to the Sylva, Dillsboro, and Franklin areas many times this year.... Even more over the past four years. I generally stay in a cabin, but this time I chose the Best Western River Escape. It was phenomenal. From the check-in staff, breakfast staff, check-out staff, facility, room, and view, I could not be happier. The price was excellent....

I brought my Mom & Dad for the weekend and they just loved it! I had been here before a few years ago, and was excited to go back. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms are nice and clean. We will be back!

Best option for the area with wonderful views of the river. If you can, spend the extra $ to get a river view room. Very relaxing after working all day. Bed was so-so. May need to replace some mattresses.
