My husband & I just returned from a 2 night stay at this awesome Hotel with a room overlooking the beautiful river. We had planned to stay only 1 night but it was just too hard to leave so we stretched our stay to 2 nights. I can't say enough about how pleasant this place is & the beauty of... More

My husband and I recently traveled to dillsboro with plans to ride the Tail of the Dragon in Deals Gap. We lucked up and got a room at this Best Western. It is an awesome place to stay! We can't wait to go back. The staff were so nice and attentive to our every request. The hotel is being remodeled... More

Rooms are nice, good location, lots to see and do in the area. indoor pool works well with kids and is very clean. Outside fire pit and lounge are with a view of the river. I was their visiting grand kids that took full advantage of the pool.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have been very pleased every time. The staff is really friendly and the river view is awesome. Although the hotel is undergoing renovations, the quality of service is still top notch.

I don't recall any other motel to be so accommodating, helpful, and offering such amenities for the price. All of the staff (especially Elizabeth & Chip) were most gracious and helpful, the breakfast above average, and even with ongoing construction this was a great facility with a great view of the river. While the driveway is not on the main... More

This was our first visit to Dillsboro, NC. I found this hotel thinking it was one that we had stayed at years ago. I was wrong about that, but I am glad to have found this hotel. They are in the process of renovating it (improvements) and doing a wonderful job at it. It did not effect our stay in... More

Yes it is still under renovation, but the desk clerk hoped it would be done in about 3 weeks, it is definitely in the home stretch. The location of this hotel is a bit out of the way, but centrally located for many different things to do and places to go if you don't mind a little driving. I used... More

Management said it was against their policy to reserve a particular room. since when and why should you make reservations them. We were not treated very nice and will never stay in... More
