We were looking for a place to stay after a weekend of skiing and found this great motel in Newland! The employees were very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and comfortable. For the price its a great deal if your looking for a cute cabin like feel stay in the mountains. They allow dogs too for only 10 extra dollars which is a great deal! We've stayed at pineola inn nearby several times but this place is so much better. Staff is very professional and makes you feel at home. I recommend this place to anyone! The mason jar cafe across the street is delicious too if your looking for some home made yummy food.

This place was really fantastic. The Ray family, who run the business, are and friendly and helpful as any people you'll ever meet. This is an older place, but the family recently renovated the buildings and they look amazing. The rooms were very clean and the showers had wonderful water pressure.

Came up to visit area for a couple days. The place was newly remodeled and looked great and the owners were friendly, polite and ready to help you if needed. Made me feel at home, When I come back this way I most definitely planning on staying again.

Its not the Ritz but its clean, comfy, pet friendly, and the nicest staff around. Cheaper and cleaner and ALOT friendlier than the Best Western in Banner Elk!

Little restaurant attached to hotel has good simple inexpensive food.

Also the hotel has free wi-fi which is a plus in the moutains.

Close to banner elk boone and johnson city.

I come to Newland twice a year and for now on this will be my home away from home.

We were attending a family reunion and this was recommended to us by several cousins who live a few towns away. It's newly remodeled inside, and is the very best place we've stayed in. Nice comfortable plush beds, the sheets were silky-soft (my sister asked for the name so she can try to order some for her new house). Bathrooms were large with lots of granite counter space and large walkin shower. Very reasonable rates. The front desk people couldn't have been more friendly. The restaurant next door is good country cooking.

Room Tip: standard rooms have one queen, deluxe have 2

We needed a Sat night accommodation near the blue ridge parkway, and everyone was booked. This place appeared to be new and just a few miles from parkway. Very clean and great location. Convenient restaurant right next door. Employees were very helpful with restaurant and attraction advice.

We called around and checked out the internet. This was a great find. The rooms are very clean. Bathroom was big and the walk in shower was great. The people that run the place are just terrific and look to make sure you are happy. We brought out lab with us and were not overcharged for him like they do in some of the brand name places. I think the location was great to, central to many places we wanted to visit. Will definitely stay again. we visit the Blue Ridge often.

Room Tip: The standard king is great value.
