“Great value and view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My wife and I stayed here in order to visit the Smoky Mountains and the attractions near Asheville. The hotel is in a safe/somewhat secluded area from general access (and 1 way in and out of the property), which I think makes the property a little less prone to crime.

The rooms were very clean and everything worked properly. Our room had a safe, fridge, and microwave. The free wi-fi was fast enough. Breakfast wasn't spectacular, but they had pretty much something for everyone (waffles, cereal, pastries, coffee, juice, etc.).

The price of the room was very reasonable, and the view from the hotel is amazing (it is located on a hill with nice views of the mountains). A couple of drawbacks: no fitness center and no laundry facility on site. Definitely would stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Hyatt Creek Road have amazing view of the surrounding mountains.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't amazing but it was better than a lot I have seen~waffles, eggs, pastries, cereal, juices & coffee and it served until 10am which is great if you want to sleep in for a bit. The room was clean, modern and I felt safe there. Great mountain views.

Very clean rooms and bathroom was newly done. Waffles, eggs, cereals, juices, muffins and more - great breakfast included. Friendly staff. Centrally located. We're glad we found this place. Only downside was paper thin walls but we weren't in the room much at all for that to be an issue. 12/28/2012.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this great motel. The rates are very reasonable and excellent hospitality! The rooms were very well maintained and very clean. The view and property was just beautiful. We travel to Bryson City every Christmas as a family and this is definitley where we will stay again!

We normally do not have great luck showing up without a reservation at 9.30pm. Our experience here was totally different.
We experienced a nice clean room and bathroom with a nice modern shower and a clean and quiet room. the rate was reasonable and check in and out was pleasant and quick. A great find and we will be back!

This hotel is perfect. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean, the property well maintained, the views are breath taking, and the location is great. You can't ask for a better hotel than this. When in the area, I would not stay any where else.

We decided to stay at the Best Western when we wanted to shop the quaint places in Waynesville over Thanksgiving. The rates are every reasonable. The accommodations are motel-like, but very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was more than adequate ... we loved the bathtub. The staff is very friendly. If we return to Waynesville, which is a fabulous mountain town near/in Maggie Valley, we will definitely stay there again.
