Stay away from this BW. Very disappointed in the cleanliness. And the free breakfast isn't even worth being free. The pool wasn't warm...supposed to be heated, it wasn't. I had intended to stay for 3 nights but left first thing the next morning. Very disappointed, cant believe this was a BW. This is by far the worst BW I've ever... More

This hotel is near Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina. The building, landscaped grounds and parking lot were clean and spotless. Reception was quick and efficient. All staff we encountered were very cheery and helpful. The room was well furnished and clean. The breakfast room was large and well supplied with everything you could want, scrambled eggs and sausages, cereals, toast,... More

We chose to stay at this hotel during our stay due to it's proximity to Grandfather Mountain, as the purpose of our visit was to attend the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games. I typically do not like to stay in hotels with doors on the outside of the hotel. I prefer my room door to be on an interior hallway. After... More

We have stayed at Banner Elk BW for the last 4 years , while attending the GMHG, we would NOT stay anywhere else. The staff are extremely friendly and professional. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is always hot and plentiful.

This hotel was everything I was hoping for: comfortable beds, clean linens, heated pool...and that's just the start. We checked into a pet-friendly room not quite knowing what to expect, but it was very clean and comfortable. Even the TV remote controls came in a cute little "sanitized" case. The contintental breakfast was very good and the staff was very... More

Banner Elk can be pricey in the summer and fall. The Best Western is a reasonable option, well located, great staff, clean and upscale rooms and lovely lobby area. Banner Elk has some good shopping. Try The Dan-De-Lion shop. They have an antique jewelry show coming up on July 17-18th, 2014. There other shops on the same strip and restaurants.... More

The staff was very friendly and the pool was very nice. Room was clean and comfortable, only thing was the breakfast could have been better. Again, the staff was very nice - especially the breakfast staff - but the selection/presentation left quite a bit to be desired. Not that big of a deal overall - just saying. Overall, a very... More

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights. It is an older motel that is kept in good condition. Front desk staff was very helpful and the hot breakfast was good. Has the smell of the mountains. Decent place to stay with family.
