Rooms are being renovated as of Feb2015. However, still plenty of rooms available with River View, some with Jacuzzi style tubs in room. Rooms are spacious, water pressure perfect in shower, great balconies overlooking the river. Staff are exceptional! Breakfast is hot and wide variety. When I saw the new décor going in on 3rd floor, I immediately thought this... More

It was Valentine's Day evening, the hotel was booked full, and there were a number of customers with third party booking issues, including me. The hotel staff stayed positive and worked diligently as a team to accommodate all of us in a timely manner.

I loved this hotel! One of the best Best Western I've ever been to. Upon arrival I was presented with a little bag of goodies, they said for being a Best Western member. It had chocolates, Granola bars and gum. Great little surprise. Had a room on the river side. What can I say, just beautiful. They have outside seating... More

Nice hotel with balconies overlooking a river. Close to quaint small town shops & great restaurants. Very clean & friendly staff. Free breakfast has waffles, fruit, eggs, sausage, etc. Great indoor pool & whirlpool. Good for couples or families. Located about 20 mins from Western Carolina University.

This hotel sets right on the river. Very nice view if it's not raining and 35 degrees. I recommend for any sportsman in the area. Not a lot of choices to eat that are close to hotel. So stop and eat before you pull in for the night.

Amazing view of the river and the surrounding hills. The hotel is off on its own and has very low traffic so good for kids. There are a few great family restaurants in town and about 5 minutes from Sylva which has a park for the kids and just small town grandeur. There are rail road cars and a train... More

Best kept secret of Dillsboro. The service is always outstanding. The view from the riverside rooms is breath taking. This Best Western sits in it's own quiet corner! Excellent place to stay no matter what season or weather.

Excellent place to stay, rooms were very comfortable and internet worked great. Not thrilled with the breakfast. Egg was on the rubbery side and biscuits were hard. Other then the disappointment in the breakfast, everything else was great

Make sure to in the river view rooms with balcony. Good breakfast, outstanding staff and very clean rooms. 15-20 minute drive to Harrahs casino. I was skeptical about staying at a Best Western but I will say that this is one of the best hotels in the area. I will be staying here from now on when I come to... More
