First time staying at this BW but we are now a customer for life. Very conveniently located to many places and things we love in the western NC mountains. The hotel is very nice, wonderfully decorated, great staff, great breakfast, comfortable bed, no problem with internet. And the views and sounds of the Tuckasegee River and waterfowl are a joy....

This is a great place to stay when you're in this area. It is right on the river and boy what a view! If you have an opportunity to get one of the rooms on the "river side" be sure & take if available. If not available, there is still nice patios & decks to enjoy as well. We had...

Very nice and friendly staff! The rooms are very clean everything in them seems to be new and in great working order. The breakfast was great and well stocked, seemed to have something for everyone. And most importantly the coffee is always hot...even at 11:00 pm when we checked in.

Great hotel with a perfect location on the river. Very scenic views. Get a room with a balcony overlooking the river. Nice suite, lots of space. Comfortable beds and pillows. The hotel has a free breakfast that was nice, except the scrambled eggs were very watery. But the other items were good, waffles, sausage, cereals, boiled eggs, yogurt, etc.

We stayed overnight at this hotel and it is wonderful. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The view of the river was the best!! I could have sat out on the balcony all day!

My wife and I stayed and room was clean and nice. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was fresh and plenty of choices. The front desk person was nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel. The river runs all night , but room was quiet. The cookies were great .

Needs better housekeeping quality control....The first room we were given we found multiple body hairs on the bedsheets and pillows (both beds), we asked for and was given another room... again found hairs on the bedding (not as much as first room). We were going to leave and ask for our money back, but it was getting late and ended...

This location was a random pick for us during our travels to FL. We really were impressed with the cleanliness and beautiful setting right on the river. The patio just outside our room was a great bonus. Would definitely stay here again if we're in the area!
