The staff, room and river view terrace were excellent! The pool was the best I had used in terms of size in recent trips. The pool and rest of the hotel was extremely clean, quiet, and peaceful. The breakfast were excellent, however I would preferred grits to gravy. The location was near everything we wanted to visit. Fully recommend this... More

We had a king room on 3rd floor overlooking the river. Very peaceful hearing the river flow when we opened the door to small balcony. Hotel was clean, had a good selection at breakfast, staff was very attentive. Location was good for going to the Highlands and exploring this area of North Carolina. We came via motorcycle and they let... More

This Best Western overlooks a mountain river and is tucked away from the noise. It has a heated pool and a hot tub to relax in, which we enjoyed very much. If you are near Cherokee, NC or the Dillsboro, NC area then by all means, go here.

This hotel is clean and welcoming. The river is beautiful to see and to hear. The breakfast is fine. All of the employees were super nice and helpful. I will stay here again soon. Nice proximity to Dillsboro and Sylva. All the rooms I have stayed in have mini fridge and microwave. Huddle House is walking distance and the Greek... More

We requested a balcony room over looking the river. Even with this being a holiday weekend and me waiting to the last minute to book the room. They made it Happen... The BEST Best Western we have ever stayed at. At first I was not sure about staying at Best Western. I am so happy we did stay at this... More

Looking for a place not to far from home to spend a romantic weekend. Very relaxing getaway. Quaint little town. Beautiful mountain views. Relaxing sitting by the river. A lot of water activities in the area. Good hiking trail on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hotel staff members very helpful.

Top notch hotel close to all that the "high country" offers. Nice room, pool, breakfast and staff. Nice outdoor seating along the river. Would definitely return! Outdoor construction to build up foundation along the river bank did not disturb the view.

The Best Western was not my first choice for hotels on this trip. However due to availability it became one of my few choices. Honestly, I was concerned about the quality because they still had rooms left when all the other chains in the area were full. I was pleasantly surprised and found the hotel to be very comfortable and... More

My wife and I stayed two nights here in a river front room with the hot tub. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub both nights and especially loved the balcony view of the Tuckasegee. Friendly staff, proximity to Sylva/Cullowhee, and a solid continental breakfast were also highlights. We can't wait to come back!
