Looks like remodeling was going on. Beds could be changed from doubles to queens. I like the décor of the lobby and hallways. Staff was excellent. Breakfast was hot and good. Would recommend to others.

Was a little pricy when I went, if I had a little notice I might have been able to get lodging right off the slopes for the same price. But the room was fine and so was the service and it really wasn't far from the slopes.

Snowboarding trip to Sugar Mountain and this was a great hotel that was close by. Breakfast was great and the service was great. Hotel should consider outlets that are more convenient to travelers. As the only bedside outlets were already being used by the lamp and clock, and you had to move the nightstand to get to it. The survey... More

Great Hotel conveniently located in Banner Elk; very close to Sugar Mountain and short drive to Beech. Great Hot Breakfast, with a much better selection than the "usual" Continental Breakfast; perfect before a day of Skiing. Staff is courteous, personable and friendly; they really "go out of their way" to make it a Great Stay.

Great place to stay close to the slopes. We paid only $79 for the night verses $450 we paid slope side. Free hot breakfast the next morning pretty good too. They even had make your own waffles. Rooms updated and clean. Will definitely stay here again.

I stayed with two of my kids while we were here skiing. Overall it was a very positive experience! The beds were very comfy, the staff pleasant and the rooms clean! The breakfast was decent except for the eggs. The outside walkways were super slick, and you had to be very careful. Otherwise, a very pleasant experience!!!!

I booked this property for a group ski trip over Presidents Day weekend. The staff was excellent at accommodating our large group. We needed a clean, convenient location to stay after a long drive and two long days of skiing. Everything worked perfectly. The location is only a few minutes to Sugar Mountain so an early start after breakfast was... More

The rooms have paper thin walls. Can hear everything your neighbors say. Drafty room. Hotel needs tons of repairs. Paint chipping everywhere. Breakfast was terrible. Food was cold. Pastries were stale.

We had a great experience at the Best Western in Banner Elk! We were traveling with a pet and our room was clean, hair-free, and odorless. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was AWESOME! It is in the perfect location for access to skiing. . . we will definitely be back!
