My daughter and I stayed in room 1 on January 10th. We came to ski and stayed here because of the positive reviews. It was nice having a suite versus a standard hotel room. The room was decorated nicely and had a portable fireplace that my daughter enjoyed. They also have games, movies, popcorn and cereal in the lobby/hallway. We... More

Best place in the mountains! We spent four nights in a two bedroom suite as a snow skiing vacation. The place is compact and not luxurious but it has everything a traveler may need. Fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, utensils and such. Coffee, popcorn, cereal etc. We needed to adjust skies and found tools to use in the lobby.... More

If you can please the woman in your party, you have succeeded! Nicely equipped kitchen. Thoughtful to put a half gallon of milk in the fridge. Nice touch to have a full size decorated Christmas tree in the room. Soup, popcorn, coffee, hot chocolate, cereal, muffins and movies available. Very homey. Quiet. Comfortable. Nice gas fireplace and big jacuzzi tub.... More

The review I'm going to write will not give Little Main Street Inn the justice it deserves. You will not understand unless you stay there. I will do my very best to explain in detail our experience - you all know how blunt I am - but this is one of these special places where words just won't do.... My... More

My husband and I first found this inn over 5 years ago. We have been back several times since and never been disappointed! The rooms are a great deal for the cost. They are quite large and feature a kitchen, futon/ sitting area, tv, bathroom and separate bedroom. Last time we stayed in a room with a jacuzzi- which felt... More

Wifi acted crazy the entire time - kept shutting off and on ... Couldn't ever get in touch with ANYONE - more places to stay (that are closer to beech mountain) for waaaaay less, but just as nice, if not nicer. Place is clean but there are many other CLEAN places around the area ... And bed and BREAKFAST (sorry... More

Thank you for your feedback. You are right, we are CLEAN - it is our first priority and as most travelers know, it is not something that can be found so easily. You also gave us 5 stars on sleep quality. Thank you, since I suffer from sleep issues, I strive to make our bedding and rooms as comfortable as... More

While visiting our daughter at leas McRae College we decided to spend the night rather than drive to our parents home 45 minutes away. We stopped at a chain hotel on the main road to see if there was a vacancy but they were full. They told us of this great little place in Banner elk that might have a... More

We just got back from a 3 day stay at this wonderful inn. So homey and relaxing. We realized after looking at all the items in the suite that we could have packed our clothes and not needed to bring anything else. It was already there! Beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the... More

Unfortunately I didn't have the pleasure of meeting the owners of the Little Banner Elk Inn, they were that unobtrusive. The key was left in the room, er suite, for us on arrival. A huge kitchen, living are with TV and fireplace, bedroom and bathroom (with jacuzzi) in "Room" 4. Everything was provided for us, and laundry facilities are also... More

A perfect, quiet spot in the middle of Banner Elk. Not a normal hotel, but more like your own personal condo. Management run this place very efficiently and are not at all intrusive, in fact you can almost go through your entire stay without meeting them! Yet, they will bend over backwards to accommodate your reasonable needs.
