Upon entering the hotel you totally get the mountain feel. The lobby is beautifully decorated, neat and clean. The rooms on the other hand are ready for a bit of a face lift. Not so much the bedroom part of the room, but definately the bathroom part of the room. While the bathroom seemed to be clean, it is simply... More

The staff were always pleasant and helpful. I would consider the hotel above average for the price and location. My children were comfortable and we had all we needed before and after our daily and evening excursions. It was a perfect location between Boone, Grandfather Mountain, and Linville Caverns, which were our intended destinations each day.

We stopped here for 1 night while wanting to see Grandfather Mountain. The hotel staff was very nice and gave us a few extra FREE sites to see! The hotel was clean, pool was warm and breakfast was great. I would recommend stopping here if you are in the area.

This entire experience met and exceeded our expectations. The hotel is excellent condition. Wi-Fi is fast and dependable. The rooms are clean and stocked. The complimentary breakfast is out of this world. Staff is friendly, courteous and professional. The pool is heated and fun. We were a family of four with children aged 9 & 11. I felt very safe...

Thanks to other trip advisor reviewers we selected this hotel for a weekend trip and we were very pleased! The location was great and the hotel grounds were really relaxing, inviting and well kept. My kids enjoyed an evening swim in the heated pool and popcorn that was self serve and made available in the lobby (coffee was also available)... More

This means that you never have to stay in a room where a pet has been if you have an allergy to cats or dogs. This Best Western is on my list of top three pet friendly hotels. The... More

This is a wonderful location, surrounded by beautiful mountains. While it was only a weekend visit, I found myself needing assistance for various things from the staff. Each staff member I spoke with was so helpful and professional at all times. The room was clean and comfortable. I hope to visit again someday.

Nice stay in Banner Elk. We enjoyed the pool. The room was more than adequate and clean. The hotel staff were helpful and very friendly. The location was perfect for our mountain activities. Overall, it was a pleasant stay in a great location.

The BW Mountain Lodge was very convenient for a visit to friends staying on Beech Mtn. Our dog was welcome, too. The lodge seemed very nice, although we didn't have time to enjoy all the facilities. Reception/lobby area nice, and staff very friendly. Breakfast so-so, but attentive staffer (Mary?) a definite plus.
