Get a room overlooking the river. Nice private balcony. We left balcony door open all nite to hear the river. This room had a hot tub on 3rd floor. We were here last time under renovation. The place is beautiful!

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were very pleased. I could spend the day sitting on the balcony, listening to the river. Our room was spacious, with a couch and a huge whirlpool! The hot breakfast buffet is the best among the free ones in any hotel. Scrumptious sausages, hot biscuits and eggs. We will return...

Probably our favorite place to stay. An excellent facility, excellent service, and the river view is so enjoyable. I have pictures of the river view after a snow! Perhaps the snow is why one worker was a no/late show but the receptionist filled in, doing double duty, and their excellent service continued without a hitch.

Great lodging and quiet location. Recently remodeled. Dillsboro/Sylva and surrounding areas offer exceptional outdoor recreation and sightseeing. We will revisit the area soon and stay at this lodging. Riverfront balcony was nice for just relaxing.
