I always wish hotels would make rooms larger and give more options of king size beds. I always seem to have to settle on a full or queen size and I need the room. Overall, the facilities were nice. No elevator, at least I never found one, so if you are handicapped, have a hard time with luggage, or bad...

I think that the cost through TripAdvisor was $25 to $50 too high. Our stay with Best Western was great. Location perfect for the events we had planned. Pool was heated and our grandson was very comfortable while swimming. Towels provided at pool were great because we had forgotten to take beach towels.

This BW hotel was very nice. Room was very comfortable. We were traveling with our dog and had more than enough room to bring her kennel inside. The employees were all very pleasant which contributed to our stay. This was a great find for a good price. We would return and recommend to others.

Facility was clean, decor ok, great pool. Friendly staff. Nice full breakfast but the items were cold - they need to find a way to keep the buffet hotter. Bed was extremely uncomfortable. Would stay again but might ask for a better bed.

Banner Elk is a wonderful little place in the mountains. The variety of lodging options is quite limited, unless you start taking chances with cabins and homes in the mountain..... since we happened to stumbled on a quasi-force weekend vacation in NC, we decided to head to Banner Elk area with our 3.5 y.o. and our 5 y. o. While...

First of all, let me state that last night was somewhere north of 125 nights I've spent in hotels or motels in 2016. I travel a lot. I'm not a travel diva, I'm just observant. I've also never left a review of a hotel before. My review would be one star, except for the great attitudes of Joy (2nd shift...

I'm a pretty easy grader but to me the Best Western was really just average. It certainly had some good points. The room was clean and quiet. There was a good breakfast included. I liked the fact that it had a mini-fridge and microwave. The pool was nice. The Internet worked well. And there really isn't a lot to choose...

Visited Banner Elk for a campus visit to Lees McRae. This was the closest hotel. Breakfast service was good, the service attendant excellent. Rooms were clean. Beds were older and somewhat uncomfortable. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. The location is good. The internet service was good.
