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

It's been a little while since my stay, but I wanted to be sure to write a review. This hotel was perfect. It's only about 5-10 minutes from restaurants but feels like it miles and miles away from everything. The location on the river is great and you can see a couple of the mountain peaks around you depending on... More

I stayed two nights while getting my son settle at Western Carolina University. The room was clean and neat. All of the staff was super friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay again when we go up to visit! It was a must for me to have a pool. The pool and hot tub were clean and well kept, which... More

This hotel is awesome. Love staying by the river and hearing the sounds and the view is incredible as well. Staff friendly and helpful and we've rarely had a problem staying there for the past 6 months.

We drove 11 hours this day and it ended at this hotel. We were happy to arrive. We stayed at several Best Western in the summer and earned a free night. We used it here. Nice to have a free river view room. The river is OK in winter - I'm sure it is great in the other seasons. Beds... More

We loved the view from our balcony. The kids thought the river was really neat to look at. The room was comfortable and we could easily adjust the temperature inside. The breakfast was decent. Nothing to write home about, but edible and hot ;). Indoor pool was a plus, however it is not heated.

Second stay within 8 months at this hotel. The river is very calming and nice to sit and watch as you plan your day. The pool is a hit with the grandchildren! On this 3 day stay we had a room on the ground level and will request it from now on..a couple of steps to the left for breakfast... More

Spotlessly clean, beautiful view of river, delightful! We will definitely be back! The town of Dillsboro was a quaint little town full of local artisans. Very helpful staff, quiet and peaceful, off the beaten path
