Very nice weekend stay. Close to Western University for our son to visit. Great river balcony view. Good breakfast and very friendly staff. Walking distance to walk the shops around Dillsboro. We will stay there again when we travel that direction.

Our family of 7 stayed 3 nights...we had 3 rooms & they were all great. Friendly staff, great river balcony view, good breakfasts & good location to Sylva & Bryson City. We will stay there again when we travel that direction.

The hotel met expectations based on earlier reviews. Check in was easy, and the view of the river from the balcony was beautiful. I recommend at least the 3rd floor if you don't like to hear the river while sleeping, but we were on the 3rd floor and could not hear it unless leaving the window or door open. Could have used more comfortable furniture on the balcony though. The room was clean and very nice, no complaints. The pool, though indoor, was rather cool, but I braved it to swim laps. It was probably too cold for most people though. Beds were fairly good, but I like mine a little softer. Would stay there again. A little pricey, but it was their tourist season, although there were plenty of vacant rooms the Sunday night we stayed.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer better views and less river noise. Definitely ask for the river view.

One nice weekend getaway might include staying at this nice, clean hotel with great coffee, housekeeping, and good breakfast. The staff could not have been kinder. Make sure to dine at Kostas, a great Greek restaurant with wonderful American food too. Desserts ooo la la.
Enjoy!!!

Don't judge this location based solely on its hotel-chain name. This is unlike any other Best Western in which you have stayed, and this is apparent immediately when you enter the front doors. The lobby is beautifully decorated and takes full advantage of its location on the Tuckasegee River with large windows looking out over an expansive deck to the river. When selecting a room, you have the option to choose a room that overlooks the river with a private balcony. It is definitely worth the few extra dollars to have one of these rooms.The staff have always been amazing and the rooms have always been exceptionally clean in our experience.

Though the hotel sits on the other side of the highway from the downtown Dillsboro area, it is by far the best hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Room with river view.

Excellent hotel with caring staff. Our stay was during Parent Weekend at Western Carolina University. Try to stay riverfront if you can. It will cost you extra, but the view is worth it. The large deck overlooking the river is great for breakfast and for just hanging out in the evening. The room was clean and spacious. The sound of the river was very soothing. I'll certainly plan on returning.

We just checked out of this hotel, and I have nothing negative to say. Brandi provided excellent customer service. Our king suite on the second floor overlooked the river. The view was nice. The room was clean and spacious. We only stayed one night as we were traveling the parkway. We will be back.
