We needed a little R&R, so we called BW River Escape. We asked for first floor. They gave us room 108. Breakfast was great. The river is a wonderful place just to sit by and relax. We will return as soon as possible.

We have stayed here before and have had a great experience both times. We stayed in a King Suite with Balcony (river view) and Whirlpool tub. Loved sitting on the Balcony listening to the sounds of the river. They served a very nice breakfast with lots of choices (eggs, sausage, pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, cereal, etc.). Bed was very comfortable.... More

We booked this room directly with the hotel. Despite a AAA discount, we paid $209 for a medicore room. We did not have a river view. The entire hotel reeked of fresh paint. There was duct tape on every door entrance and paper tape on each door with the room number. Very classy. The ice machine on our floor was... More

Make sure to book a room with a river view. Even our youngest enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the river. Great jumping off point for Cherokee and Smoky Mtns. Staff was very friendly. Plenty of breakfast options for little ones. Rooms were very clean and beds very comfortable.

At check in we were assured the room was completely renovated, however there were... More

I am sorry to learn that you are unhappy with your recent stay. We have been very transparent that we are renovating our property to make it better for our guests to enjoy in the future. We have been limiting construction hours to a few hours a day when most guests are away and being very careful about cleaning everything... More

For a great place to relax, sit on the balcony overlooking the river is this hotel. So quiet and peaceful. We come here this time every year. Always great service. Professional when making reservations and making sure our needs are taken care of.

Watch of you reserve a r4oom on other sites...This site will give you the parking lot unless you advocate. The room rate difference it you book at the hotel is from $90.00 per night and $ 130.00, plus tax!!... More

Thank you for complimenting our property. We always encourage customers to know more about booking through third party websites. Although they can give you a lower rate you do not have control over the room you get and it will always be non-riverside. They are able to get those lower rates because they are selling our least sold inventory. If... More

Thanks for the great review! We're close enough to the Casino but far enough away to avoid the crowds that go along with it. We will look forward to welcoming you back soon! More
