This was a great fall visit to see the leaves with a beautiful view, very clean, friendly staff, FANTASTIC breakfast for a hotel and the lady in the kitchen was super nice. We've already recommended this Best Western to friends & family. It's also located near a couple of ski slopes and is not far from Grand Father Mt. (Must...

Just stayed here last night. Staff was very friendly! Beds slept great, rooms were very clean, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc... available in room. Free catered breakfast was served from 7-10 am. Besides the eggs being a little dry, breakfast was quite impressive! My only complaint was that after breakfast the showers in our rooms were out of hot water....

I'm happy to know about this, as I go to the Banner Elk-Boone-Blowing Rock area several times a year. My room was very clean, attractive and in excellent condition. The pool and picnic area was very pleasant, and it was very quiet back there. The staff was accommodating, friendly and professional. I also had a wonderful hot breakfast, and it...

Entered the lobby with a fire burning in the fireplace. The staff is very nice and accommodating. Soft fluffy pillows on the very comfortable beds. The towels in the bathroom were thick and of good quality. I arrived late to breakfast and Mary, the server, told me not to rush. She said, " the last person eating here should have...

My husband and I stayed here because it was close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Grandfather Mountain. The staff was very friendly. The facility was older but had been renovated. The breakfast and attendant made our stay even more enjoyable. The eggs were fresh and they even had grits. Enjoyed it very much.

We enjoyed our 2-night stay at BW Banner Elk. Upon check-in, we entered a very inviting lobby with functioning fireplace, tasteful decorations, and friendly, welcoming staff to greet us. We were given our choice of available rooms and chose 2nd floor (two floors in this hotel). We had a good mountain view from our room, a very comfortable bed and...

hotel should let you know ahead of time that dogs are allowed in breakfast room where food is being served and eaten. Yuck!! I like dogs but not where food is being prepared and served. Guests should be more considerate of others too.
