We look forward to coming back. We absolutely love the people. area and everything about this Best Western!!! The rooms are very roomy. The only complaint we had was water pressure in shower. We have stayed here several times and have only experienced no water pressure once. Cant wait to come back.

The suite I visited in the Best Western of Dillsboro NC was absolutely spotless. Our stay was well provisioned and all the room had obviously been cleaned and provisioned with thoughtful care. The staff members are professional and courteous. We enjoyed our stay and would refer our friends to this motel without hesitation.

Booked because it's close to WCU, more expensive and farther out but thought the river would be nice and give my son and I a beautiful view to wake up to. I booked a suite to give us a little privacy. Suite just means bigger room to Best Western, no bedroom. I asked for river view, was told it 20... More

Our family had a wonderful nights sleep. The hotel is in a very peaceful area. The staff were sweet and helpful The view is stunning on the river and the hotel is surrounded by mountains. Our family was very pleased with Best Western. We will return again.

We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful hotel, beautiful setting, good value. Nice pool, breakfast is on the better side of typical. Pay a little extra for a balcony overlooking the river. Worth every penny.
