We stayed here as an extra day after checking out of a condo due to icy roads. Staff was very helpful getting us in a room early. Pillows and beds were very comfortable, wifi worked well, and breakfast buffet was pretty good. Not the fanciest BW around but just what we needed!

We checked in on Feb. 9,-12, 2015. The staff was so friendly and the decor fit the theme of the area. Rustic mountain lodge but brand new and all fresh amenities. Everything worked and nothing was dated. Full hot breakfast, very nice surprise. I will certainly stay here again. Very close to the slopes. Everything close by.

Stayed for 3 nights Feb 10th - 12th. Check in was nice, they gave me a little bag of dog treats. Room was clean, everything worked. We ended up in a room in the back, next to a big field to walk our lab. Breakfast was nice, hot eggs, grits, gravy, sausage, biscuits, toast, fruit, pancake maker (the usual continental).... More

The hotel is what you would expect from the Best Western brand. You cannot beat the location in relation to Sugar Mountain and Beech mountain. All other hotels of this quality are located miles away. I will stay here again on future trips.

I spent two different weekends here with two different sets of grandsons on our annual ski trip. The hotel staff is wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are on the smallish side but I think the room is for sleeping and not a place I want to spend the day in. They offer a good "free" breakfast that offers enough... More

This is our third group trip to ski Sugar Mt where we stayed at the Best Western and this last trip was better than ever. From the beginning of planning to the actual stay, the staff with Shannon Wooten in the lead make it easier and more pleasant than ever to plan a great trip with our large group of... More

Stayed for a long weekend for skiing. Very close driving distance to Sugar and Beech Mountain ski resorts. Staff were very friendly, loved the mountain lodge feel of the main building with it's fireplace. The rooms were exceptionally clean and recently renovated. Free breakfast was a decent spread. Will stay here again without hesitation.

We were very disappointed with the accomodations and general conditions of the Best Western Mountain Lodge at Banner Elk, North Carolina. We stayed at the property during the MLK weekend and were left nothing short of unimpressed, disgusted and displeased. Our room was not only in bad shape, but rather dirty, dusty and highly rough around the edges. The common... More
