“Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel and would definitely stay again. The staff were friendly,welcoming and responsive to our needs. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. There were plenty of electrical outlets and the lighting and heating/cooling systems worked well.

I stayed here one night with my dog. This is a true dog-friendly hotel. At check-in, they provided me with treats for my dog. There are plenty of grassy areas for walking dogs, and bags and garbage can are provided in the park area. Other hotels seem to have older, non-updated rooms, or rooms with damage, that they put you in if you are traveling with a pet, but the room was fresh and clean.

Front desk staff was very nice, and quick to check me in, despite it being very busy. The room itself was very nice, very clean, very quiet. A refrigerator and microwave are provided in the room, along with coffee maker, hair dryer, iron.

Breakfast was great, a lot of options to suit most anyone. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, cereals, oatmeal, cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, etc.

Came back as a WCU alumni for a relaxing trip down Memory Lane. This was a very nice home base. Very convenient to everything I wanted to do including the luminaries in Dillsboro. I would stay again or recommend it to anyone coming to this area.

We wanted a quick easy place to stay after picking up our son from Western Carolina Univ. on the way to Ohio for Thanksgiving. The hotel was right off the Smoky Mountain Expressway. Was clean, had a modern look, and the service was wonderful. We had an early breakfast in the dining area, nothing special but had fun with the Pancake Machine. Plenty of choices for a basic breakfast, hot and cold. Price of the room was moderate. Not dirt cheap, not outrageous. We would stay here again.

We stayed here with our priority points and were able to upgrade upon arrival. The suite was great and plenty of room. This hotel offers a heated indoor pool and sauna and that was great after a day of travel for the kids to unwind. Also, a little side note. The lady who was running the breakfeast area in the morning was very nice and super helpful! The staff in general were all very nice and eager to help. I highly recommend this hotel. It is also close to Cherokee and downtown Dillsboro is very cute.

I have stayed here several times and as recently as Nov 2 & 3, 2012. It is a very nice HIE. The hotel is clean, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is very nice. The location is good. I went to a Western Carolina football game and to the casino in Cherokee and was close to both. The only negative was the price. It was high for the area and trying to get a discount for government rates, WCU or AAA was like pulling teeth. They acted as though discounts were top secret and not to be given out. Other than that I had a very nice stay and will probably stay there again.

We stayed here a year ago. This time was just as pleasant, and our room seemed even better than I remembered. The hotel was so CLEAN. It seemed like everything in the bathroom was brand new. Ample counter space at the sink. More than one light and separate fan that was not annoyingly on all the time. The rooms were quiet.
Breakfast was good. They have those to-die-for warm cinnamon rolls. The dining area is very nicely appointed. Hotel staff is all very friendly and helpful. Glad we stopped there again.
