“Great Location and amenities!”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

First rate hotel right on the Tuckasegee River. got the river front with balcony and jacuzzi. Well worth the extra $25. Full breakfast buffet very good. Staff was very friendly. The location is great to see everything within 25 miles. We'll go back!

The Best Western River Escape in Dillsboro has been a destination for us for some time. Always immaculate with a relaxing atmosphere. A resort within the small town, walking distance to shops and restaurants without the high cost of a resort . We have never been disappointed!

I did a lot of researching and reading reviews here when I was looking for a place to stay. I am happy to report that everyone was right about how great this hotel is! It is totally worth it to get the river view! The balcony is a nice size and they have chairs to sit in. Very quiet beautiful area. The room was VERY clean. And even though it wasn't a brand new hotel, you could totally tell they constantly keep it updated. We got the jacuzzi suite and it was so nice. The jacuzzi worked great and was very large. The bed was SO comfortable. Also the free breakfast was very good.

The only thing they could improve on is to get larger and better quality TVs. But that is not a huge deal. I would much rather have a spotless hotel room over a big flat screen TV!

We first stayed here on the night before our son started school at Western Carolina University. Since then, we have stayed numerous times, for wonderful occasions such as his senior recital, and for scary times, when he had emergency surgery at the local hospital. It has a relaxing and welcoming quality that we will not give up once he graduates. This will definitely be our "getaway" base for our mountain trips. The staff members are friendly and consistent - they feel like old friends by now!

Room Tip: Get a river side room if possible; it is definitely worth the slightly higher cost!

Of the available hotels in the area that we have experienced this one has the best view! We enjoyed relaxing on our balcony and watching kayakers and rafters float by.. Spend a little extra if you are going to be in the room a bit for the backside next to the river.

Room Tip: Ask for river view
