A number of us stayed at the Monte Vista earlier this month. The beds were very comfortable indeed and all the rooms are of a superior quality. Great noises outside with the cicadas and railroad late at night. Breakfast was fairly minimal but what there was was of a good standard. One of our party was troubled though with spooky... More

We arrived in Black Mountain without any reservations. This was truly a gem. Our room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and this was a nice change from the usual chain hotels. My husband I also ate dinner at the restaurant, and the food was excellent. If you are going to Black Mountain, NC, I would recommend the Monte... More

This place is very charming:-) the staff is so willing to go out of their way to accommodate. The food is to die for.... Especially the fried green tomatoes! Just love this place, and priced right too! We planned on staying one day, but stayed two because it was so wonderful!

The Monte Vista is a pretty cool hotel just a few hundred feet from downtown Black Mountain. You can easily walk to all the shops where you'll find some good food, bars, and quaint little shops. The room we stayed in had no clock, phone, or TV, but it was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom had a... More

Family vacation went awry and if not for Barney and Sue we would have had a miserable night. Walked into the hotel, music playing, people dancing, wonderful atmosphere and the nicest welcome from Barney. Had a few drinks in the taproom, dinner and then a great nights sleep Our family can't wait to visit the area again and stay in... More

I cannot say enough good things about The Monte Vista in Black Mountain. Sue and Barney have done a wonderful job bringing this fine old hotel/inn back to life. I stayed there twice last summer when bringing and retrieving my daughter at Camp Merri Mac. We stayed again this year and more improvements were made and it felt even better.... More

This was our second time staying at the Monte Vista and both visits have been delightful. The hotel has a lovely porch in front, a front room area that is available for dining or for lounging. The bar area is welcoming and the new addition of a covered patio in back adds to the ambiance outdoors. There was already outdoor... More

My 12-year old daughter and I stayed at Monte Vista on a Saturday night two weekends ago and we were pleased with the location, within walking distance of charming Black Mountain. Unfortunately, we had a very disappointing night's sleep - we stayed in the newer part of the inn, near the the back and the features of the area we... More

Requested a room at the last minute. Sue was willing to work with us and provide a great room with options. Monte Vista is the prefect base for whatever you want to do in Western NC. WNC has so much to offer and Monte Vista is your place to provide great food, a bar, music, eclectic art and a peaceful... More
