“A Brief Vacation and Relaxation”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

If you are in the Western North Carolina, take the opportunity to find Sylva and Dillsboro. The BW Plus River Escape and Inn will allow you to step-back,, relax, and listen to the Tuckaseegee river pass by your room. Take a deep breath and enjoy the beautiful view from your riverfront room. A great coffee maker, on demand machines and a good breakfast!! I can't wait to come back!!!!

I stayed at the Best Western River Escape Inn & Suites in Dillsboro while attending a conference at Western Carolina University and it was a most satisfying experience. The outside area by the river was just the best. I loved it and will be back.

I was greeted by the many blooming fruit trees that grace the entry into the hotel site and by the smiling receptionist. Because of my BW Rewards status, I was offered an upgrade to the river side of the hotel. She turned on the model train, made it go by the remarkable model of Dillsboro. I was blown away on entering my room, larger than a suite really, with all the accouterments in good working order. I filmed the room and the porch view of the river. Having stayed here three years ago and again two years ago, I had forgotten how lovely this hotel really is. I was indeed charmed. Please see my blog comments posted for the April 2nd stay. Post entitled First Look at the Mountains posted on April 3 on peeweesbigadventure.wordpress.com. Then go to the referenced Dropbox website to see my photos and videos for a self-narrated tour of your place along with some of the sites in Dillsboro and Sylva, including the county courthouse/now a library and a delightful gyro plat at Kostas. Great value there too, the gyro lasted me that evening and the leftovers went into the fridge to be enjoyed again the next day. I'd heartily recommend staying here to anyone passing thru. Don't miss the opportunity. And please feel free to post this review to your website so travelers can enjoy a stay here and be as charmed as I was. Pete, for stay of April 2, 2014.

The babbling river that runs alongside this hotel is a most enjoyable experience and the cities of Dillsboro and Sylva provide a wonderful weekend getaway to the foothills of the Smokies. Western Carolina University is near as is Cherokee but the hotel is just a great place to rest and enjoy the scenic beauty.

We loved this hotel! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The hotel was very clean, had a great view of the river, great location near Dillsboro, Sylva and Cullowhee. All of the staff was more than accommodating during our stay. This is a great overall hotel!

The appliances in the room did not work, and there are no cable movie channels. There didn't seem to be enough staff to help with checkin, such as luggage assistance. The breakfast seemed nice, but not open late enough for late risers.
