Our hiking group selected this hotel for our yearly trip. It is in a beautiful area with many hiking opportunities and restaurants. It was a good choice with very nice and clean updated rooms. They also supplied us with a conference room for our fun gathering. My one complaint is that they did not supply tea bags along with the... More

The staff at the front desk were warm and friendly. It took a little longer than necessary to check in and out because of a new computer system but we were in no hurry so it was no problem for us. The price was budget-friendly. $89 per night and the clerk asked if I had coupons or Triple A for... More

Good location, rooms are dated, but comfortable enough. It is nice to have a small refrigerator in your room along with a microwave and small coffee pot. Staff is wonderful. Breakfast is ok, nothing to write home about. They are pet friendly, which is a bonus for us.

This is a nice, updated hotel. Free popcorn in the lobby when I checked in and a good breakfast selection the next morning. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The tv remote was in a sanitized bag-had not seen that before. Seems like they had thought of everything. Enjoyed sitting by the pool in the evening with my... More

I always wish hotels would make rooms larger and give more options of king size beds. I always seem to have to settle on a full or queen size and I need the room. Overall, the facilities were nice. No elevator, at least I never found one, so if you are handicapped, have a hard time with luggage, or bad... More

I think that the cost through TripAdvisor was $25 to $50 too high. Our stay with Best Western was great. Location perfect for the events we had planned. Pool was heated and our grandson was very comfortable while swimming. Towels provided at pool were great because we had forgotten to take beach towels.

This BW hotel was very nice. Room was very comfortable. We were traveling with our dog and had more than enough room to bring her kennel inside. The employees were all very pleasant which contributed to our stay. This was a great find for a good price. We would return and recommend to others.

Facility was clean, decor ok, great pool. Friendly staff. Nice full breakfast but the items were cold - they need to find a way to keep the buffet hotter. Bed was extremely uncomfortable. Would stay again but might ask for a better bed.

Banner Elk is a wonderful little place in the mountains. The variety of lodging options is quite limited, unless you start taking chances with cabins and homes in the mountain..... since we happened to stumbled on a quasi-force weekend vacation in NC, we decided to head to Banner Elk area with our 3.5 y.o. and our 5 y. o.
