“Not what I expected!!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2011

Check in was good. Staff was friendly. Condo not so good. We stayed in 1114. Decor and kitchen are awful. Very noisy, not well insulated. Sounded like people above us were bowling and could hear entire conversation in condo next to us. Will not stay here again. The only good so far is the in-door pool. Kids loved the pool. Online pictures looked much better!!!

We had a really great time in Beech Mountain, tried our hands at skiing and snowboarding although we weren't quite as good as we had hoped. The hotel is literally 2 minutes from the slopes, with lots of shops and stores close at hand. The room was clean and featured a kitchen, fireplace, and balcony. There was even a cute little book that had been signed by other guests that had stayed in the room. We never made it to the pool but Im sure it was nice. The only thing that wasn't the best was the three story walk up with sore muscles (as I said we are not the best at skiing) and freezing wind almost blowing us over. But it was a small price to way for a comfortable room on top with wonderful views.

For my 50th birthday I decided to go skiing again not far from home . My daughter located this resort and decided to surprise me with a 3 night stay.....I read some reviews on trip advisor both positve and negative. I was a professional travel agent for 14 years in my previous career and have a degree in hotel/restaurant management. Judy and Scott were very gracious and the resort although a little older...was clean( I check the grout even on tiles), accomodating with supplies, warm, friendly, and comfortable. The bed was relaxing, fireplace worked good, kitchen updated and clean, and the view outstanding. Close by was a store...Fred's Mercantile, that had anything else we needed within a mile. I will recommend this to friends and will return...for the value it was a great weekend escape....Diane & Jeff

We have stayed here many times for winter skiing. Location is great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They accomodate for late check ins. Some places do not. This is the best place to stay at Beech Mtn, I highly recommend staying here.

Me and the girlfriend and one more couple decided to go skiing for new years. Never have been to NC before we had little to base on where to stay. We went through did some google reserch and came to find the pinnacle inn. We saw some very awful reviews, but decided to take a chance. The price was too good to resist, and if it was not to our liking we thought well we would just sleep there.

Upon arriving we were greated by a very friendly staff, and told where our room was. The parking lot was clean of snow, and the overall look was nice. We got to our room and we were shocked. It was clean, beautiful, and had brand new kitchen stuff. We also had a huge patio that overlooked the ski resort.

The only issue was some of the bed linnen looked less then clean but they had a washer and dryer in our unit so it was really not problem at all. Becides when you go to places like this you really rather bring your own bed stuff.

The shuttle took us wherever we had to go. The internet was actually a bit faster then i expected. It got bad around 5-7 when people returned but that is expected. The town is very nice, and the skiing is probaly the best you will get east of the mississippi.

Bring your own booze though, liquor is a bit tricky to find (you have to go to an ABC store) beer is sold in this cute little store that the shuttle will take you to.

The hot tubs were nice to soak in after a long day skiing, and there were not to many kids running around, so that was nice for my group.

Also if you don't mind there is a nice outlet mall about 45 minutes away and its a very pretty drive.

I highly recommend this place for the price, and the fact that you can do just about everything you want.

In spite of other reviews, our unit was awesome. The new appliances were greatly appreciated, and the master bed was amazing. As far as staying warm, the room was always toasty... sometimes to the point of having to open a door for a minute. Right around the corner from the Famous Brick Oven (highly recommended) and just up the hill from Beech. If you don't have 4 wheel drive, the parking lot may be more of an adventure than you're ready for. The shuttle to and from the mountain runs regularly, and the drivers are fun. All in all, an excellent trip. We had a double room, unit number 3223, and it could easily sleep six.

I conducted a military retreat to this inn. The staff was so helpful and accomodating. They were so friendly. I will definitely be conducting more retreats here.
