On a ski trip to NC we stayed here for 3 nights and fell in love! Front desk staff was great, location was quaint and hotel was super clean.

Stay here if you get the chance, and opt for the rooms overlooking the river with balconies!

We stayed at the River Escape in Dillsboro, NC for one night. The room was pretty spacious and the bathroom was typical. The bed was not great. It was a queen bed and tried to dump us into the middle of the bed. It just was not a comfortable mattress. There was a breakfast included. If it was billed as continental - it would have been pretty good. I had hot chocolate, cereal and yogurt, all fine. My husband went for the hot breakfast. The eggs were awful - obviously plastic wrapped and reheated in a microwave. The bacon was OK. We were there on a Groupon so we didn't pay a lot for the room. If I had paid full price (or even half price) I would have been very unhappy.

Room Tip: Although there is a queen bed and a pull out couch, they are both in the same room. You could fit f...

I am disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us more. As I'm sure you can tell from other reviews your experience is not typical for us. I'm sorry that the bed was not more comfortable for you and that your husband did not enjoy our hot items at breakfast.

For other travelers reading this review I did want to point out our breakfast offerings, which do exceed a normal continental breakfast. We have four different kinds of muffins, fruit, yogurt, bagels, various types of bread, Pillsbury biscuits, Jimmy Dean sausage or bacon, egg patties, gravy, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal (several flavors), grits, and several cereals. We do have a few things I did not mention along with several toppings and jams.

Our goal here at our property is to exceed expectations. I hate that we missed the mark with you. I hope you will consider coming back and seeing us again in the future and offer us another opportunity to serve you.

The front desk staff were super helpful. The rooms were outdated but relatively clean (did find some change on the floor which make me wonder about the level of cleanliness). The brunch was fine. The view (river front) was spectacular. I think it is perfect for what it is there for - a quick trip to the mountains or to the casino. Great location for a walk. And, again, the scenery is perfect!!!

Thank you for your review. We are planning a full renovation in the future. However, many things have been recently updated in each room including all linens and bedding and the new 42" LED flat screen televisions.

I hope you'll come back and see us again! I appreciate your compliment on our stunning view of the Tuckasegee River.
